Love it!

I bought this as a replacement for an earlier Slingshot model, the 100AW, which I had bought to fit a Rebel XT. I needed something a little bigger that would more comfortably fit my EOS50D. In addition to the larger size, there are some nice upgrades over the first generation Slingshot line.

I bought this as a replacement for an earlier Slingshot model, the 100AW, which I had bought to fit a Rebel XT. I needed something a little bigger that would more comfortably fit my EOS50D. In addition to the larger size, there are some nice upgrades over the first generation Slingshot line. There are several more pockets in convenient locations, and the biggie for me is the inclusion of a strap to hold a tripod or monopod. Watch out when carrying one, however. Since the Slingshot hangs off your back at an angle, the tripod may stick out a little to the side. I've accidentally whacked a couple of people in passing. The only disappointment for me is they have downgraded the CF card wallet built into the lid of the main compartment. On the first generation Slingshot it was a wallet that opened wide and could easily hold 8 or more CF cards. On this one, it is two very small and tight pockets that can squeeze in 2 cards each. I assume this was done to keep the cost down with all the other upgrades. Not a deal killer, but I really did like the larger card carrier in the first gen product.

maybe and maybe not

After using the Sling Shot for a couple of weeks I find that there is a need to increase the width by 3 inches and the complete bottom of the main storage compartment should have Velcro stick capability. I have the 14-24 Nikkor with 24-70 Nikkor and use the 18-200 Nikkor for my walk around lens. All fit but not very good for I can not use the velcro tabs. This is my rant and I am sticking to it.

Just the Right Size


from Hilton Head Island, Sc  -  Photo Enthusiast

I am a big fan of Lowepro slingshots. I had the 101 and the 301 and one was too small and the other too large for everyday use. The 202 turned out to be just what I needed for my Fuji X stuff. Plenty of room , a big pocket on the top for misc. stuff and a holder for my tripod on the side.


SlingShot Hits Target


from Texas  -  Photo Enthusiast

Exceptionally well constructed. Very comfortable when carrying. Well designed for carrying camera, lens and accessories. Choice of sizes to fit photographer's needs.


Perfect size and great comfort


from White Plains, NY  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I had the 102 Slingshot and really liked it, but with a new camera it was too small. This is perfect for a Nikon D800, flash, and spare lenses. The zippered pouch at the top holds my filter wallet and it has a rain cover to protect your equipment. Since it's a sling, it's equally weighted across your chest and can be carried on just one shoulder. When you want something out of your bag, just slide it to the front, unzip and there you are.


I highly recommend this product


from Wildomar, Ca.  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use this backpack when I go bicycling around the lake, I don't need to set it down to get to my camera, I just swing it around and all of my equipment is right in front of me for easy and quick access. I don't even have to dismount the bike to take a picture.


A Good Medium-Sized Camera Bag


from Philadelphia, PA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Much more room than your basic camera bag, and pretty comfortable. Plenty of room for accessories. The side-loading compartment makes stowing/grabbing your camera pretty quick and easy. The downside to this is that all the sub-compartments inside are perpendicular to the quick-access flap, so if you want to get at any lenses/flashes, you'll have to take the bag off and fully open it up. Additionally, large telephoto lenses are a tight fit, and may require some reconfiguration to fit (though that could also make them easier to access). Bottom line: I'd recommend this for anyone looking for a bit more space than your typical camera bag, and want something that's a good value.


Great product


from CT  -  Photo Enthusiast

Lots of pockets Excellent quality Met expectations. Good value for the quality of the product


Excellent Design


from Colorado  -  Photo Enthusiast

I was looking for a camera bag that gave me access while in the field and comfort while getting there. This is it.


Nice Bag but too small


from Columbus, GA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Well designed bag but it's too small for more than one pro DSLR plus a flash and a couple of small lenses. I ended up returning this and got the larger 302AW.


Happy with the purchased


from Valdez, AK  -  Casual Photographer

Well make, not find any thing wrong yet.


Perfect Fit


from Georgia  -  Photo Enthusiast

This is a perfect fit for my D800 and accessories.


Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
RADE M  the best bag for my needs. :-)
Shopper  Can a Canon T3i attached w/ 70-200mm USM II 2.8 fit? And a Canon 17-55mm USM 2.8 and a Canon 600EX speedlite? Can all of these fit in this sling bag?
KIERAN D  I use a Nikon D80 with grip attached. I have the bag configured to keep a longish zoom on the camera (55-200 about 4.5") or any of the lenses. I set the interior partitions for 2 high and 2 low partitions around the zoom lens. I keep 2 additional lens, prime and mid range zoom. Speedlight & Battery Charger and cords in the four square pockets respectively. In top I have wallet, b-cards, gps & keys. In front pocket I have hot shoe adaptor, bcards & pens I carry the bag every day on me or in the car. Its pretty durable. Hundreds of flights too. I will say, when I was in Rome last year, I really wanted just a holster for a camera & lens as the bag isn't so comfortable to carry for long 5-8 hour walks. Compared to crazy big kits I see on some folks, I would definately recommend it.
Shopper  Will this bag hold my T2i (550D) with grip?
TROY S  If you're talking about a battery grip, then to answer your question: Yes... it will. Mine does. It's a nice, snug fit, but that's what you want. You don't want your gear (that you just spent a boat-load of money on) bouncing around in there, now... do ya? No, sir-ee! You, most assuredly do not! It's a good bag, and I never leave home without it.
