  • Removable Camera Insert
  • Space for Water Bottle / Personals

The black/red Passport Sling II Bag from Lowepro is a multi-functional way to carry your photo gear and/or personals. This compact sling can hold your DSLR with attached zoom, one extra lens or flash along with a water bottle and some personal items such as passport, sunglass, ID and tickets. If you use a smaller CSC (compact system camera), it will accommodate the camera with attached zoom, two extra lenses or one lens, one flash plus the same personal items.

The sling is unique with its removable, red customizable insert that includes configurable dividers to arrange whatever gear you choose to carry. Use the dividers to separate your gear from your personals. Or, if you remove the insert entirely, you have a shoulder sling for clothes and personals to be used as a get-away bag. The Passport also makes a good second bag for a vacation since you can remove the insert completely, fold up the sling and place it within your larger luggage and use it when you arrive at your destination.

The sling features an expansion system whereby you can unzip the front and increase your storage space by 30% with the insert inside. Removing the insert entirely gives you 50% more space for clothing, phone, keys and other needed items for your adventure. Full access to the contents is via a full length zipper that runs along the top of the sling.

The Passport Sling II is made from 600D polyester and features a moisture-resistant non-slip exterior. The interior is a 210D nylon, brushed tricot combination. The exterior shell is 100% polyester and the lining is 99% nylon with 1% polyester. At only 1.1 lb, you'll hardly know you're carrying anything. Carry the Passport Sling II by its cam buckled shoulder strap that contains a removable shoulder pad. The Passport Sling II is backed by a limited lifetime warranty from Lowepro.

Discreet sling bag design offers a versatile way to carry camera and personal gear without looking like a typical photo bag
Customizable and removable camera box provides a custom fit and protection for a DSLR or CSC (compact camera system) kit; remove box to use the sling without camera gear-it collapses flat to fit in a larger bag for packing
Expandable compartment allows you to unzip and increase interior storage space by 30%
Water bottle pocket provides a convenient spot to keep hydration at hand
Bright, contrasting lining provides visibility when working in lower light
Adjustable shoulder strap with cam lock buckle offers a comfortable way to wear sling over shoulder or across body in a high or low position
Detachable shoulder pad offers extra comfort no matter where placed along shoulder strap; when removed, it provides a more streamlined look

        Comments about Passport Sling II Bag (Black/Red):

        Like many other photographers, I'm always looking for the perfect bag and as my needs change so does the bag. I am primarily a nature photographer, but I also cover local/regional political events from time to time. Thus, the need for different bags. I was looking for something for my m4/3 Gear (OMD E-5 plus lenses) for events and that I could easily carry around with me in my day to day travels.

        It needed to be light, easy to access, not too big, but big enought to carry what I needed. So, just like Goldilocks, I tried ones that were too big and others that were too small and had just about given up when I ran into a friend with this bag. The hardest part of the decision was which model (sling, Sling II or Sling III). I went for the SLing II as the best compromise for my needs. I quite happy with it so far.

        Just yesterday, I used it while covering a 3 mile environmental protest march. The bag was great. It had room for what I needed, plus a water bottle. It was easy to carry and worked well for me. I do wish the outside pockets, as others have said, had velcro closers.

        Recommended.

          Comments about Passport Sling II Bag (Black/Red):

          My wife has the original passport sling bag and loves it. She bought the sling II bag as a gift for her sister. Here is their review: It is great for carrying your camera, wallet, light jacket and few other items without getting heavy. Love the fact that you can keep the side compartment zipped to make it more compact or unzip it for extra room. The camera is very padded and secure. One has a Rebel T2i with Tamron 18-270 lens that fits; her sister has a Canon powershot that definitely fits! The only thing both would prefer is if the outer pockets had some type of closure - velcro or snaps - to keep items more secure. LOVE IT!!

                  This bag will accommodate my Nikon D7100, 70-200, and one extra lens. Room for filters, extra battery, and extra cards. I have an ape case which accommodates my camera, an 18-300, or 70-200, a battery and several sd cards. Great for running around at home. However when I am traveling the Passport Sling is my go to bag in the field. The center support system of the bag removes so the entire system collapses to easily fit in your suitcase. The bag has room for a water bottle and much more. The bag preforms nicely between bare bones and full gear.

                  Strap is wide and easy to adjust, bag is padded and has adjustable dividers allowing for the separation of camera, filters, additional lenses, etc. - it is a great bag! The distinctive trim in red makes the bag easy to identify whether in a trunk of a car, closet or inside a suitcase. Buy this gear bag, you will be glad you did.

                    I have both the Passport Sling I and II. Great all-around bags. Could be improved if the external pockets had zippers or velcro to prevent some items from falling out.

Can also put in a few things like Galaxy Note, pens, paper, etc. Easy accesibility to the camera with the bag hanging just under the arm.

                        Comments about Passport Sling II Bag (Black/Red):

                        I am using this bag with a Sony NEX-6 with the 16-50mm, 24-70mm, 10-18mm and 55-210mm lens. I have individual pouches for the lenses as there are not enough individual compartments inside. I was even able to fit my Sirui T-025 tripod in the higher part of the bag. The bag is comfortable to carry and relatively unobtrusive. With tripod in, I cannot carry a lot of other things but otherwise, there is room for a jacket or sweater, Kindle, water, etc.

                        A great compromise bag to have everything together and not be hesitant carry everything, without it being a burden.

                        Some might prefer a bag with more compartments but you'll have to suffer the weight and bulkiness that goes with it. I was looking for the ideal compromise and really like it. I used to have the Lowepro SlingShot but much prefer this one as I can carry other stuff in the bag and it is more convenient when sitting dows and in crowds being a side bag rather than a quasi-backpack.

                          Got this for my wife for her birthday to replace her fitted camera bag. She loves it, plenty of space to make this a replacement for both a purse and a camera bag. Great value and great utility.

                          I did some modifications to the bag by adding 2 inch Velcro on the inside bottom & sides to allow for extra padded inserts
                          also added Velcro to the side pockets to keep them closed
                          I carry a D4 in the bag along with a couple of filters and a wide angle lens & it still has room inside for memory cards, small notebook, etc...

                          I were preparing for two week trip to Hong Kong/Singapore and looking for bag. This days my setup is very simple: NEX-7+Sigma 30/2.8, couple chargers spare battery, Nokia Lumia 920 and Garmin eTrex GPS. I have a nice mini trekker which is too big for my needs (do not get me wrong it's excellent backpack when you have 2 SLRs, 4 Lenses, Tripod and other stuff) also I got Sony LCSEMF/B which is my everyday case but for this kind of travel it is too small. After research I discovered - currently for people like me who has mirrorless setup and like to travel light options are limited, so I settled down on Passport II. After two weeks in concrete jungles, my conclusion: It is still bigger then I want but Ok, I can live with it. Most important it's comfortable, nice separation of camera section and other stuff. Outside pockets are actually useful, I managed not to lose anything what I put there, volume extension zipper is useful. It doesn't attract much of attention. Would I buy it again - yes, as I wrote before not many options around. Small things to improve - padded slider on belt doesn't have any fixation, so periodically I had to put in place, not a big deal.

                          My favorite part about this bag is its shape. I didn't want a bag that looked like a typical camera bag because I do a lot of traveling. Also, I don't like carrying bulky bags around.

                          This bag is exactly what I was hoping to find. It lays comfortably at my side and offers easy access and use.

                          My only criticism would be on the outer pockets. It would be nice if the outer pockets had closures, but that's a very common criticism for this bag. But that's it!

                          The bag has small pockets on the inside for sd cards and other small memory storage. And the adjustable strap is fantastic. I'm very happy I made this purchase.

                          When traveling, I need to carry my DSLR with an 18-200 mm super zoom lens and an HD camcorder. This sling bag fills that need perfectly! It's cushioned 2-section insert fits my 2 devices like a glove (alternatively, a second DSLR lens can be placed in one of the sections), and provides more than enough protection.

                          The form factor couldn't be better for a day of "walk-around" activities. The bag fits neatly under the arm, providing not only easy access, but security; the bag itself tucks under one arm, while the strap goes over the opposite shoulder and hold the bag firmly in place.

                          Best of all, this sling will expand to provide copious additional storage behind the camera insert. Expanded, the rear of the bag will hold almost any item one might need for a day of exploring, easily including a full-sized iPad (rain jacket? Check. Glasses? Check. Binoculars? Check.). If one runs out of room on the inside, there are convenient pockets all the way around the outside of the bag. These pockets are ideal for water bottles, small items to which one might want quick access, etc.

                          The only downside I can imagine is that the "dedicated" storage is limited to 2 items. One cannot, for example, store a DSLR, a camcorder, and an additional lens in the cushioned section. This limitation could, however, be worked around by simply storing additional devices in the rear storage area, but with less protection.

                            This is a lightweight bag that is expandable. Great for carrying throughout the day and for travel. There is a padded section that holds my Nikon D7100 with a prime portrait lens and space for a telephoto lens. There is one interior pocket for a phone. Would like to see more interior pockets and either velcro or zippers on the exterior pockets. That is my only quibble. There is plenty of room for a wallet, glasses and a sweater.

                                I like to walk and hike and wanted a bag for my camera equipment that would hold what I wanted but that I could not over pack. The bag is comfortable to wear and it is easy to get to my equipment. The out side pockets would be better if they were able to be closed. I recommend giving it a try, unless you want to bring the kitchen sink with you.
