The large black/gunmetal Mild Enthusiast Sling Pack from Crumpler is a full-featured pack designed for the "stow and go" photographer. It's made to be a shooter's bag with rapid access to its contents by dual zippers that guard the main storage compartment. With its capacity for your pro DSLR and 2-3 lenses, one a 70-200mm f/2.8, there's also plenty of space for accessories in the three rear stuff pockets. An additional separate rear slip-in compartment is for your 11" MacBook pro or iPad. All in all, there are seven storage areas for gear and accessories. For smaller quick access items, you have elasticized loops on the back on which you can attach even more accessories such as pouches.

The Mild Enthusiast opens in clamshell fashion with flaps that prevent your gear from accidentally falling out. The interior contains two touch fastened, movable dividers that allow you to configure the pack to suit the gear you are carrying on any given day. With the divider removed, your 70-200mm f/2.8 can remain attached to your DSLR. The pack is lockable with a user-supplied padlock that fits on the previously mentioned dual zippers.

The exterior is a 900-D water-resistant nylon while the inside is a brushed nylon designed to be gentle on the fine finish of your camera gear. For transport, there's a 2.0" wide adjustable shoulder strap with a removable shoulder pad. Crumpler also includes their Quick2Flick buckle that raises and lowers the pack to where you want it to sit on your body. Backed by its lifetime warranty, the Mild Enthusiast is your "run and gun" bag that delivers rapid access to gear when the shot is there.

            Comments about Crumpler Mild Enthusiast Sling Pack (Large, Black/Gunmetal):

            Very nice and well designed bag from Crumpler. The way the bag is shaped it makes it look much smaller when you wearing it. Although Crumpler makes many camera bags it's nice that it doesn't look as much like a photo bag as those made by other manufacturers.

            The back pocket fits an iPad 3 easily with plenty of room to spare. And that's with the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover attached.

            In the main compartment I have a D800 with the 50 f1.4, Bose QC15 headphones in their case, and some camera straps. There's a zip pocket in the opening flap where you can throw in SD/CF cards, lens rag, and other small items.

            I've also configured it where I carry the D800 mentioned above and a D7000 with a smaller lens attached. Still enough room to carry a speed light or another lens.

            Small nitpick: the zip pocket in the flap could have used some little dividers, it's just a big pocket so everything "floats around".

            The shoulder strap is very adjustable and really comfortable. Maybe the most comfortable messenger style bag I've ever worn.

            This is not the most padded camera bag in the world, although I don't think that matters too much for a day bag. I don't give the gear inside a second thought.

            Glad that I decided on the Large version of this bag over the Medium size. Thinking that would have been a touch too small.

              Comments about Crumpler Mild Enthusiast Sling Pack (Large, Black/Gunmetal):

              Purchased this bag as a "walk around" bag to fit my 7D (with grip) and 70-200 2.8 lens. I was having a hard time finding a bag that would fit this combination and still be small enough and comfortably to carry around all day. With the dividers in the bag it holds my 7D (with grip), medium zoom lens, Extender EF 2X III, flash and accessories. Take the dividers out and it holds the body/grip with the 70-200 2.8 & extender attached. There is still room for a flash and accessories. The bag is very comfortable and looks a lot smaller (and not like a camera bag) on your back. Your gear is also easily accessible when you spin it around to the front. I did find that when the bag is loaded up if you try to put an ipad or kindle in the back pocket - it does not really fit. The bag also does not offer much in the way of protection (other than water resistant) for your gear - but all in all it's a great bag.
