Very well organized!
Well, of course this isn't my only bag. I have a "big" bag that holds all my stuff = my laptop, body, lenses, flash, extra batteries, etc. That bag carries all of my gear to the hotel room. Then, I put the necessary gear in this bag and take it for the day. Body, lenses, flash, straps, extra batteries, cell phone, all fit into this bag. I LOVE the sling.

Great bag, low quality of zippers
After 3 years of very light use the main zipper separated from the fabric. The bag is useless now. It is made in China indeed.

The Lowepro SlingShot 200 AW is a quality item with sufficient padding, a great design for ease of carrying and use. Its great if you dont have to many lenses or acceseries.
I keep it packed and am ready to go play whenever the opportunity arises. This bag is comfortable to carry, keeps my equipment safe & dry, holds everything I need except the tripod!
use it for casual photography when I dont need to carry eveerything in the world to shoot
Perfect for me. Interior fits a d7000 with vertical grip and 55-200mm on body, with room for a wide angle and medium telephoto len and two strobes. Large storage pocket on the top for accessories. Front pocket for pens memory cards note pad etc. All weather construction with a hidden rain shield to cover the bag in a down pour. No need to take bag off for shooting just rotate it in front of you for quick access to your camera. Loops on front and side holds tripods and monopods. (monopod with large rubber foot will not fit through loop) Has an additional strap to hold bag in position for hiking and biking.
Decent bag for the money... does not have any external straps to carry any external gear/stuff
...flawless design and operation, great construction and ridgidly flexable application...
Great bag, very practical for the photographer on the go! Holds camera, 3 lenses, plus a few other small pieces of equipment. Comfortable, easy access to gear. Best part, bought the bag thru Adorama and saved over $20 compared to any brick-and-mortar store, and about $15 cheaper than that other giant online retailer!
I have a few SlipLock lens cases and bags so the LowePro 200AW with its 4 attachment points was attractive because it fit with my investment in SlipLock gear already. The main compartment of mine, in addition to the K5 w grip, has my DAL55-300, M100 Macro, DA35/2.4, FA50/1.4, Pz-AF 2x teleconverter, M50 Macro, fast charger w car adapter, lens pen, and 4 SD cards in the flap. The top compartment has 6 filters (2 each 49, 58 & 72mm) and my Bell & Howell Z680AF flash. The front compartment has my extra batteries for the camera and flash. On the outside side SlipLock attachment I have a lens bag with my Tamron 10-24. Pros: Main Compartment holds lenses up to the DA55-300 length with ease Main compartment is reconfigurable via velcro K5 with D-BG4 Grip attached with 18-135 fits in the front compartment Interior storage in the main compartment with velcro closure for SD cards and other small flatish items Has 4 SlipLock attachment points (strap, side, top slanted area, and front). Stands on its own with flat bottom Cross strap secures tightly to body and stores away in its own compartment when not needed Good cushioning on both back and main strap Interior compartment cloth to protect Camera's LCD screen Strap is long enough for 6'3" person All-Weather cover that stores away easily Cons: Narrow (can't really have a superzoom attached in the quick draw position Bottom not reinforced (like some of the Case Logic bags) No tripod attachment point LowePro does not make a Tripod SlipLock add-on
This is a great bag, it can be a bit bulky, but what do you expect when you have a bag that is meant for carrying all your gear! The built in all weather poncho was great since the day after it came it was raining and I had to bring my camera out, it kept everything perfectly dry! As far as storage, I only have two lenses at the moment, so it carries my spare in the lower compartment and I keep the other 18-55 attached to my KR in the sling, which is easily accessed for immediate use! Overall it was a great price for a great bag.
The SlingShot is a bag that seems to have exactly what is needed in it when I am out taking photos. I look forward to using it with the new camera I will be buying.
