    Was looking for a workhorse bag that fit me and my equipment comfortably. Tried shoulder bags but they left me listing to one side of the other. Tried Tamrac sling, but it was uncomfortable, not ergonomically well designed and did not allow for all my equipment.
    After much searching, settled on this lowepro. Was able to fit my 5d MarkII with a battery grip, 70-2002.8L, 24-702.8L, 17-404.0L, all with lens hoods. Also, 100 2.8 macro and a 2x teleconverter in the main compartment. In the large and roomy top space, able to put 580 exII and mrII macro flash as well as filters an itouch and various other little accessories. The tripod holder held my manfrotto securely, and the built in rain cover worked great while hiking through the Costa Rican rain forest. When all straps secured and snug, the weight of the bag, over 26 pounds, was superbly distributed and left me exhausted from the day, but not strained from poorly distributed heavily weighted camera bag.
    Ideally, I wish the bag itself was waterproof or at least the zipper seals, and the tripod strap needs to be secured to the bag itself. When not in use and if you forget to clip it closed, it can fall off. But only minor complaints considering how well this bag performed.

    This bag has a small time look and feel, that can deliver big time storage in the field.

    Well, this bag was supposed to be my save all; its almost there but not quite. I bought this bag to replace a Medium Tenba ShootOut bag I owned for less than a hour. After getting the Tenba bag, I gave it to a colleague because it was just too small for the kit I wanted to carry in a sling bag. This bag does support the 70-200 f/2.8 lens mounted on a D3, and up to a few other prime lenses depending on their sizes. This is my street shooter sling bag for going out into the city or short hikes in the woods. I never intended to carry my whole kit with it. So this is what I put in there: D3 (with RRS L Bracket), 24-70 f/2.8, 135 f/2, 50 f/1.4, 70-180 f/4 macro, SB-800 flash, Lens Cleaner Air Bulb, Flash Cord, Remote Shutter Release, Sanho HyperDrive, Black Rapid Double Harness, Better Beamer Flash Extender, Joby GorillaPod, Extra CF Cards, Extra Batteries, Cell Phone and Pens. So you see, this bag fits quite a bit very well and is not overly large. CONS: Needs rubber pads on botom to protect material. The shoulder belt isn't wide enough. The shoulder strap is in the wrong place, it is centered in the middle of the bag so it is awkward when slung across the body. The shoulder strap needs to be wider and with more padding. The quick release buckle for the shoulder strap doesn't seem that secure for all the gear I have loaded, thus I tie the lose end to the other side to make it a permanent fixture at a fixed length. Front pocket is only good for buisness cards and pens. The tripod holder will only take a small to medium light weight tripod. The zippers are loud, so if you plan on using this for weddings, think again. The built in micro fiber cloth isn't removeable as it is stitched in; nice to have as a last resort though. You have to lie the bag down flat on a large surface if you want to safely pull out your other lenses; I wouldn't recommend changing lenses while this is slung over your body, you will probably drop something if you do. However, it is great for reaching in and grabbing your camera body and the lens that is mounted on it; this is where it excells for full size pro DSLRs. Only time will tell if I will trully like this bag. Just the few times I have toted it, I know that it will become uncomfortable for any prolonged wearing (i.e. more than 2 hours).

          Bought this bag a second time to replace the one that was stolen. The main compartment is large enough to hold my camera, 2 additional lenses, a flash attachment, and a Cokin filter set. The medium and smaller compartments offer enough room for plenty of additional accessories.

              I love the storage available in this bag and the compact size of it. Was excited to find it could hold a second camera body in the top compartment. The rain cover is a huge plus for outdoor event photography and the compact size allows me to wear it in crowded events without bumping into people.

                    Comments about Lowepro SlingShot 302 AW Camera Bag:

                    Plenty of room for the large camera and lenses. My Nikon D610 and with battery grip and 28-300mm attached fit easily into the bag, and I can access it quickly. There is also plenty of room for my 42-70mm and 70-200mm lenses. I could fit a couple more lenses easily into the bag without trouble. I have all the other gear I need for hikes in the wilderness without having to carry an extra bag. The bag is well constructed, and I am sure I will get years of use from it. All my gear adds up to some substantial weight and the single strap does end up putting some strain on my left shoulder, but the waist strap helps to minimize this somewhat. If you are going to be be carrying a lot of weight you might want to think about a regular backpack model. But I chose the sling for ease of use - I can get to my camera easily without taking off the bag. So far I am very happy with it.

                      I REALLY liked my 202AW better. But when i got the 70-200 it wouldn't fit mounted on my 70D in the bag. I was so happy with the 202 that I bought the 302aw and really like it. Everything in the 302aw is just a little bigger. The downside for that is all the little pockets in the 202aw that were the perfect size are now all bigger. Things that used to stay in place in front storage area are now all in a big pile when you open it.
                      Other then that its a fantastic bag that carries everything I need and makes it easy to get too.

                        Easy to adjust and as comfortable as could be with this stuff in it, I really like it.

                        The only thing I would change is the top handle, it could have been a little bigger but that's minor really.

                          Used every day to transport 7D camera with battery pack, 3 lenses, 2 flashes, 2 PocketWizard TT5 Transceivers, 1 PocketWizard TT1 Transmitter, various cables, memory cards, lens cleaning supplies, business cards, small tripod or monopod & rechargeable batteries for EX580 II flash units! This bag holds a lot of gear for its size! …
                          I bought it mainly for wanting a smaller pack for street photography & the likes as my larger bags were just too much to drag around in smaller locations! This fits the needed applications I need it for & it's great to be able to swing the bag around, without having to take it off, to get camera with lens attached out to take a shot!
                          I haven't found any negatives to it yet!

                          It is a rather spacious backpack, the (Nikon)70-200/F4 fits in easily when attached to a camera and several lenses such as a 28-70/F2.8 and 17-35/F2.8.
                          However, the tripod attachment must have been designed by the marketing department - it can only take a small tripod (my Manfrotto190 is way too large for it). Therefore only four starts

                            I love this new camera bag, I still have pockets I don't use….tons of room for the on-the-go videographer/photographer.

                            I upgraded from the smaller sling bag. With the purchase of more equipment there was a need to get a larger bag. This fit everything I needed and still has room for more!

                              I use it to carry my camera gear with several lenses and a flash plus accessories, It has plenty of room with dividers for my lenses and camera. I can sling it on my back quickly and easily. Nothing bad to say about it.

                                I have the 202 and the 302. I found the 302 to be too large to be an effective sling bag. At this side a backpack by Tamrac 8 was better for the same size. Recommendation: Buy the larger Tamrac expedition 8 or 9 backpack for all your gear when you travel but get the Slingshot 202 for general use when you can just bring a few things.

                                This is a well built quality product, well worth the money. I'm able to store my gear, 2- Nikon SLRs, 70-300 zoom, 18-270 zoom, wide angle, and 18-55 and flash. But wished there were more pockets for accessories such as battery chargers/cords (have 2) extra batteries, cleaning kit, etc. There is room for it all but would be nice if the top storage area had compartments versus one opened cavity. All in all very happy with it and would recommend it.

                                This backpack is GREAT for holding ALL necessary gear for a great photoshoot. Holds SLR camera with grip and long lens which the smaller bag did not. I upgraded from the 102 to hold my 5d mark iii, 70-200mm lens and 2 prime lenses as well as flash, cards, manual, snacks, etc. Plenty of room although the pack gets heavy with it all!!
