Comments about Lowepro Lowepro SlingShot 302 AW Series - Black:

Purchased this because the AW 350 is no longer available. Love the slingshot because of the quick access and that I can use it to rest the camera right in front of me and use the bag for support. The AW 350 was better due to its larger size but this bag will do just fine

Comments about Lowepro Lowepro SlingShot 302 AW Series - Black:

I've been using this mostly for travel. It holds almost all of my gear, and has an effective waist strap to reduce the load on my shoulder. In fact, when I'm wearing the waist strap correctly, the shoulder strap doesn't put any pressure on my shoulder.

On the airplane this bag is my 'personal item' and barely fits under the seat in front of me. I fill up the bottom part with all my camera equipment, and the top part usually has a couple small camera things, and then my headphones, and snacks for the ride.

I've also used it for hiking, and I found it worked better than a normal backpack, mostly because of the waist strap. I tend to just keep my camera around my neck. So, I don't use the sling wrap to the front for that purpose. But, I do use it when I want to sit down on a bench. You can't easily get to the lenses while it's slung forward. But, you can get to the batteries/memory cards easily enough.

The best reason for me to get this one over the others is the internal height of the bag. It is just big enough to take my 70-200F4-IS lens vertical in one of the slots. In my main portion of the bag I usually carry: 2 camera bodies (7D, 40D), 70-200, 100mm, 17-55mm, 30mm, 8mm, 1.4x, Rode StereoMic, and a 160GB hard drive media player for backup. I have to stack things a little bit, but they're all protected.

I've been happy with my purchase and have no need for anything else, until I get a super telephoto and need more space. :)
