    So first, this bag can carry a LOT of gear, they are quite conservative in the description (my gear list below), it's deep allowing stacking of (2) large lenses or (2) DSLR bodies PER section and there are three flexible sections in the main compartment (or can be converted to more/less). It's made VERY well, and it is a SLING bag so when loaded up it (like ANY bag its size) will be heavy, so to the other reviews that said it was too heavy for their shoulder, I'd advise using a sling bag as it's intended and put it ACROSS your body, not over your shoulder. SLINGs are not shoulder bags, they're meant to be carried across your body and then quickly rotated to the front for easy access from the large access main door. (the photos in the smaller model (180AW) of this bag show proper sling bag position i.e. over the head and shoulder, not just shoulder)

    I've carried mine all over Europe street shooting, day-long treks etc. where I wanted to carry all or most of my gear with me. The low profile style doesn't scream "I have $10K in cameras and lenses here, come rob me!" when you're walking less desirable neighborhoods late night or 5AM on the Danube waiting for that empty square or perfect sunrise. Granted if you use the tripod attachment and carry one, it's kind of a moot point. I have a tiny Benro travel tripod that fits perfectly and I travel with it often but I also have attached my much larger Manfrotto 055XPROB with a large head without a problem though only for day shooting in NYC or Central Park, not sure how well it would travel given how large the 055X series.

    So what will it hold? I pretty much left it as it came, moved some of the dividers a 1/2 inch here or there maybe but mine contains:

    - (2) DSLRs - b/u Canon body only at bottom center and Canon 7D with either my 24-70mm lens ATTACHED above it
    - (5+) additional lenses (in their fitted cases!) 2 on the left, 2 on the right stacked. A mid range prime, a 10-20 wide angle but 2 are longer and fit easily (Sigma 70-200 and Sigma 70 f/2.8 all 4 in cases)
    - an additional small lens (Canon 50mm prime) in center section with my camera
    - additional room in main compartment on top of the lenses, L/R of DSLR for a flash, meter, etc.
    - bottom section holds a Slik MiniPro, my Canon battery charger, and (2) filter wallets holding 10-12 filters and a large hi-speed card reader
    - top section holds a large Giottos ball head, numerous cables, cell phone, and a pocket cam (mine is one of the tiny Canon Elphs)
    - the zippered compartment holds several batteries, a few quick release plates, lens covers/caps, lens wipes, etc and stil allows closure without hitting the DSLR
    - plenty of room and nice padding for the laptop section plus another smaller outer zip pocket for personal items which acts as another buffer for your laptop should you drop the bag etc. I only carry a netbook and it also allows room for my external hard drive when traveling but can easily fit the larger laptop size mentioned in the specs.

    Great bag, the main one of three I use; I also have a much smaller Lowepro sling for my camera and two other lenses only and a large backpack I use when hiking which allows attachment of non-photo equipment, etc.

    Lowepro is a high quality, good priced brand in general. 220 AW bag however wasn't what i expected practically wise. It is very well built and sturdy. Has some good features like the pockets, tripod holder and the rain sleeve. and for the price, it was attractive for me. But when i received it, it was bigger and bulkier than i thought it would be. I'm 6' 2" 175lbs and i feel like im wearing a ninja turtle shell. It is definitely too big to be an everyday, walk around bag i mistakenly thought it would be. I need another bag for that. It does however make an excellent travel/transport bag. Stuffed it holds fairly securely my EOS 60D with battery grip attached, Ex480 flash, 18-135mm 3.6, 50mm 1.4, 70-200mm 2.8 with case, 2 battery chargers foldable flash bounce and some accessories. It has nice pockets with place to store pens, mobiles and business cards. Do i use it often? not as much as i wish i did. I rather go with my 18-135in my back pocket, 50 on camera and 70-200 in the case it comes with and sling it over my shoulders. So if you use your camera every day or two, you're not going to want this bag. But if you travel long distances transport you gear to your shoot then this is an excellent choice. Its large enough to be taken as carry-on,

    The LowePro Classified Sling is a great bag for event photographers or photo journalists. My favorite thing about this bag is how comfortable it is. This waist straps do a nice job of moving the weight down to the waist when you're just walking around and not digging through the bag

      For the street photographer with too much stuff. I use this for street photography and I use massive medium format film cameras. I don't understand who else would need so much space but it does the job. I kind of wish is was like 15% smaller. I'm 220 6ft and I feel it is a massive bag even on me. If there was a size between the 220 and the 180 that would be the perfect bag. Of course great quality from Lowepro and really nice design but the size is kind of comical.

            I owned the Lowepro Sling 302 AW. In fact, I have owned two of these bags and they have served me will. The drawback to the Sling 302 bag is that it does not have space to accomodate my 15 inch laptop. Now with the Classified Sling, I can pack my laptop to my shoot without having to carry an extra laptop bag. The added utility to this bag has me thinking about buying a second one.

              Comments about Lowepro Classified Sling 220 AW Bag:

              I ordered this bag as a Cyber Monday deal not having known anyone with a Lowepro bag and going solely off online reviews. This bag is extremely high quality. I like that it doesn't have any huge logos or any text that really says, "steal me; this bag is extremely valuable." It is very cushioned and definitely designed for field work. It has a really great media card storage panel that even gives you a way to indicate whether the card is full or ready to shoot on which is a handy little feature (3 slots). Great for carrying multiple camera bodies and lenses and designed for quick switching. Has a great weather proof cover that slides out and covers the bag quickly. Overall, I'm really happy with this purchase. Solid construction and I'd imagine I'll have it for a long, long time. I will say, though, as a 5'6" girl with an average build, this bag is quite large on me, so if you're looking for something small, I would go for the other smaller model.

              Comments about Lowepro Classified Sling 220 AW Bag:

              This is a big bag as many reviewers have said, however, it was perfect for me to transporting a couple of digital single lens reflex cameras and lenses (a Nikon D90 and a Nikon D5100) from Boston to Las Vegas, where I had a good time shooting on day trips to the surrounding countryside. I packed a 18 to 55 mm zoom lens, a 35mm fixed lens, and a 55 to 200 mm zoom lens and an 11 to 16 mm super wide angle lens. One of the great things about the bag is that it is large enough to allow me to pack the camera bodies with one lens attached inside of a holster bag. This makes for tremendous padding and convenience. Like a lot of other reviewers, I wouldn't carry drag this around the desert for eight hours. That was the job for the holster bags attached to a waist belt.

                This bag is very spacious and can be configured to fit 4-6 lenses in addition to my T3i, zoom H4n, chargers batteries etc. The single sling strap puts a bit of strain on one shoulder, but the quick release buckle on the strap makes it very easy to take the bag on and off. Overall the bag is well made and there are a lot of thoughtful details throughout. The SD card compartments have reversible full/empty labels, and there are pockets for just about everything you can think of. Biggest plus is how deep the bag is, and since the padding is all adjustable there are many ways to utilize that space.

                    I use the case to carry 1 DSLR, 2 lenses, 2 small panasonic Lumix cameras, batteries, chargers, memory cards, laptop computer and other associated accessories. I like the fact that I can keep all of my items in one place.

                      Nice sturdy bag, fits everything I need and more. My 13" MacBook Pro fits nicely, although it would be nice if there were a little more protection dedicated specifically towards the computer pocket. But considering its a camera bag and not a laptop bag, It still gets five stars from me.

                        I was looking for a bag that would be good for hiking with a Nikon D700 w/battery pack and 70-200 lens attached. The bag was too big for hiking (lots of empty space for my purpose). I actually returned it.

                          This bag is great, but not the most comfortable. The "one" sling isn't enough support when the bag is loaded down. But the compartments are great and the structure is solid.

                          This is great for my photo equip. but my 15.6 laptop wouldn't fit entirely because of the bag trapezoidal form, the laptop wont fit on the upper part, aside from that, its a GREAT bag (now i need a new smaller laptop hehe )

                              This bag looks bigger for what it can store. I've used it once and now it's sitting in the cupboard. It was too heavy and hard to access my lenses and 5dmrkii body.

                              Upgraded from Sling 200 to accommodate pro lenses.
                              This does the trick!
                              Comfortable to carry for my 5'11" frame.
                              Good organization options, don't take my laptop with me on shoots, but space proves useful.
                              Put two bodies and three pro-series lenses in it and you can't expect the miracle of anti-gravity; however, it IS well-balanced, manageble weight.
