The black Urban Photo Sling 250 from Lowepro is an all-around, 600D nylon carry-all that gives you the option of toting it in any of three positions. Its shoulder strap allows you to wear it over your shoulder or swung in front of you on your chest. Or, keep it at your side as you would a traditional shoulder bag. The tuck-away waist belt provides additional balance and support while you're walking or hiking. For gear, it will accommodate your pro DSLR without the grip and a 70-200mm f/2.8 attached as well as two additional small lenses or, if preferred, a flash and one extra lens. There's also room for your 10" tablet, held in a separate padded compartment, for when you're sitting at lunch and want to access files, jot down a few notes or send an email.

The side has room for a small tripod or water bottle. For access, you can load the sling from either the top or front. Top access gives you fast retrieval of your gear while front loading delivers customization. Both methods are achieved via strong zippers. Backed by Lowepro's lifetime warranty, the Urban Photo Sling 250 is a versatile and comfortable way to carry around a minimum of gear while offering you carry options that other similar bags don't.

      I looked at numerous bags hoping to find a sling style that would hold my D700 with a 70-200 2.8, as well as carry an IPad. There's room to spare for a couple small lenses.

      Easy access to the camera or tablet from the top.

      For style, I like the fact that it is all black. The black Lowepro logo fits well with my desire to not be a walking fashion label.

      The bag holds just what LowePro says it will hold and offers the flexibility f configuration as claimed. However it feels more like a fat messenger bag than a sling pack to me.

      It functions just as described in the product copy. But as a slim (in shape) guy with a 32-33 waist standing 5'9", this bag seems ungainly when on my back and unusually large.

      I decided to exchange it for the LowePro Transit Sling 250.

          This bag is in good quality and its appearance is good.
          It is good for a DSLR and two lens.
          It is a little big for a DSLR and one lens, but it is fine.
          Overall, I like it.

          Good, but a little too small

          Comments about Lowepro Urban Photo Sling 250 (Black):

          I have notice that the iPad pockets are just large enough for the iPad without any type of protection, in the future I going to look at bags that have a laptop pocket, if the iPad is in a protective case the pocket is too small, also I thought it would be as easier to access then a shoulder bag with the sling set up, but it seem a bit awkward and I felt it would be easy to drop items out of the bag, so I sent it back, going back to a shoulder bag with more of a top load ability.

            This sling bag is very good. It is durable, sturdy, and comfortable over my shoulders. The only this I did not like about it was that it was too small to fit all of my photo accessories.

                I mainly purchased this bag to have a more comfortable bag that I can get fast action while transporting up to a D4 with a 70-200 lens,, this bag can do it but I actually have a hard time pulling it out and putting the camera in,, I also tried it over a few hours with my d800 and 24-70mm for a couple of hours on a picnic and found it not to be so comfortable. I will probably use my messenger bag more often

                      I've been using this bag with the following:

                      - Canon 1DX with Cotton Carrier combo plate (integrated hub + Manfrotto PL200 QR plate)

                      - Canon 28-300L IS lens

                      - Canon 580EXII

                      This is my walk around full frame rig.

                      It is comfortable and roomy enough.

                      BUT...

                      - I would add more pockets for filters, flash benders etc.

                      - Get rid of the waist straps (more of a hinderance than an aid)

                      - Add a stowable rain cover.

                        This is my THIRD Lowepro bag - while I love my Video Fastpack 250 AW I don't ALWAYS need to carry a backpack with my laptop, three cameras and a full size tripod (the Fastpack is GREAT when I do need to carry half my studio with me) - The Urban Photo Sling 250 has become this New Yorker's new best friend. With just the right amount of space for my iPad, Canon T3i, 17-50mm lens, Rode Mic, 3 extra batteries, battery charger, iPhone/iPad charger and a pocket on the side for my gorillapod with enough room in the front for personal stuff that I don't want weighing down my pockets. Anything this videographer needs for a day in New York City (or Walt Disney World). love, Love, LOVE this bag!!

                        Handling is more difficult than I hoped for. To remove and place back a Canon 1DMII with a telelens requires me to open the zipper at the front to allow "top loading". I also miss more small compartments for filters etc.

                        I wanted a light weight bag that had enough room for a camera body, additional lens or two & accessories. It also had to be comfortable to carry & allow easy access to the equipment while I was on the move. This bag satisfied that criteria. It is very well designed; both good looking & totally functional. It's worth the price.

                          I needed a highly portable, comfortable bag that I could carry my camera body, extra lens and some accessories. It had to be light weight & the equipment had to be easily accessable while I was on the move. This bag satifies all those needs. It is very well designed on all fronts. It even looks cool. It's worth the price. I don't have any negatives.

                          I needed a bag for daily use. I commute to NYC for my day job and I wanted a bag that could be used as a commuter bag at the same time as a photo sling bag.
                          It's not too big and it doesn't look like a camera bag.

                            I needed a bag to carry my newly acquired 5D Mark II. I needed something not too big and bulky , not a backpack and not just a shoulder bag. This is a great mixture where I can carry it cross body, or on my shoulder. Turned out it also has enough space to carry my earlier camera, a 550D AND a 50mm Lens. Great ergonomically designed and very user friendly. Highly recommend.

                              This bag is a great size for one camera, a couple of lenses and all of the accessories one needs. It's easy access and the supporting waist strap takes the weight off one's shoulders so it's perfect for long distance hiking or touring.

                                Comments about Lowepro Urban Photo Sling 250 (Black):

                                I looked at numerous bags hoping to find a sling style that would hold my D700 with a 70-200 2.8, as well as carry an IPad. There's room to spare for a couple small lenses.

                                Easy access to the camera or tablet from the top.

                                For style, I like the fact that it is all black. The black Lowepro logo fits well with my desire to not be a walking fashion label.
