The Vanguard UP-Rise 34 sling bag holds one DSLR camera with attached lens, one to two extra lenses and accessories. It has a limited lifetime warranty. UP-Rise is a combination of uncompromising quality and protection plus a new sleek and sporty design that appeals to enthusiasts and professionals alike.
UP-Rise breaks the mold of camera bag standards with its innovative ability to expand in size to accommodate your changing lens and gear needs. Every UP-Rise model expands with one easy zipper motion and shrinks back down when you don't need the room. It's two sizes in one! UP-Rise has a removable raincover, multiple pockets for extra memory cards and lens caps as well as an orange interior, making it easy to spot your loose gear.

Best and most practical camera bag I've ever had. This black bag is discrete and very practical to use when you need to take pictures and had to stay with the bag on your shoulders all the time. The bag has a lateral aperture that make easy to take the camera fast.
I bought this bag for the purpose of using it as an everyday walk-around camera bag, and for such purpose, it's perfect for me. It's well built, and provides ample protection for its contents (a raincoat is even included). For casual walk-arounds, it provides just the right amount of space for minimum gear (This could be a negative for those who tend to bring many stuff even during a casual day.). By minimum gear, I mean the camera with attached lens, one additional lens (or 2), external flash, and accesories like memory cards and extra battery. Quick access to the camera is easy via the side access when you 'sling' the bag to your front. Otherwise, normal access is at the back, which provides additional security to your gear while walking in the streets. What it is not for: 1. It's not the bag to use when you need to bring a lot of gear. 2. It's not the bag to use if you want quick access to everything inside the bag while walking. Quick access is only to the camera itself.
I couldn't fit my Canon 50D through the side openning, which basically renders this bag useless unless you have a very small SLR. But otherwise the bag is well made and well thought out.
