The slate grey Transit Sling 250 AW from Lowepro is versatile travel bag made of weather-resistant 600D polyester. It can accommodate a DSLR with a 24-70mm or a 70-200mm lens attached, as well as two additional lenses, a flash and accessories. There is also a dedicated compartment in the back of the bag for a 10" tablet.

A modular internal UltraFlex divider system allows you to choose one of two compartment configurations for storing your photo gear in the bag. The first is the dual compartment option featuring a separate top area and a main camera area with quick side-access to your camera. The configuration can be changed by pulling a red tab on the central divider and folding it down, making a more spacious main compartment in the bag.

For storing smaller items, the Transit Sling has a hidden passport pocket on the outside of the front flap, and a zippered accessory pocket with a key chain strap on the inside. There is an open mesh pocket along the back inside the top compartment. For carrying the bag, you can use the sling strap as well as the nylon webbed grab handle at the top of the bag.

      ok lets get to the 5% bad part if you use a battery grip with your APC dslr like a nikon D7000 you can not use the side flap door to get it out so you have to open up the whole bag to get it out.the camera will fit fine with the grip attach to it. same goes for full frame camera like the D600 now lets take about the 95% its just perfect !!!! if you are seeking a light,comfortable easy to get in and out of then you have found it. i use this bag for city sightseeing, traveling light i have use the following a d7000 with 18-300mm lens getting in and out no problems ...a d7000 with 17-50mm lens no issue there also inside the bag where the divider are i can carry a sb700 flash and prime lens in the top part of the bag i carry my strap and battery grip it also has room in the back of the bag for a tablet now i use a nexus 7 tablet and it has no issue of fitting in there but i mostly use this to carry personal items so they will be kept zip up. i encourage you to go to this store or place that has this bag along with other bags like this thats what i did and i choose this bag it fit me just right

      Typically, Lowepro bags are excellent quality and good value. (I own two others). I was pleased with the design idea of the Transit 250AW, and I was wanting a slimmer profile bag. It was working until I tried to get my D7000 out the quick access side door. The opening isn't large enough for both the camera and the hand holding the camera, to get it out the opening without substantial maneuvering. A bit too much of a hassle.It would be an excellent choice for a mirrorless camera and lenses.

        As a photographer that always want to carry my camera with me. Along side some personal items, the Transit Sling 250 AW is a perfect sling bag for the city routine.With enough space to carry my digital or film SLR with the one lens attached, I can also carry another standard focal length lens and other SLR body, without looking like a normal camera bag.

          used for a D5100+300F4, a monopod, two extra lenses in the side pocket, and accessories. The design is ok, generally comfortable to carry, and fit lenses well. Would be 5-star if the side pocket design is improved. Now when converted to the 'long lens' mode, the side pocket is not comfortably converted to accomodate two lenses. Also the bag is comfortable to be used as a torso pack for quick access.

              I purchased this bag looking for a small bag to carry around a Pro DSLR with a 24-70 and 70-200 lens. The equipment fits almost perfectly. The bag will hold a pro DSLR with a grip, but the camera must be placed on its side and will bulge out a bit. Also, all of the internal dividers must be taken out. I was able to fit my gripped Canon 7D with an attached 70-200 and a 24-70 resting above it comfortably. It's small enough to be discrete and the sling fits very comfortably.

              Unfortunately, I returned the Transit Sling 250 AW. I was very pleased, as always with the Lowepro quality and the roominess or the bag, but I could not get it to feel comfortable to carry. It felt very akward, no matter how I adjusted the strap.
              I returned it for a Lowepro backpack.

              This bag is actually very good. Relatively compact but plenty of space to carry a T3i with the kit lens plus two more lenses and accessories. The top section for personal items is big enough. I exchanged this bag solely because all the weight on one shoulder got unconfortable on a trip. I need two straps to distribute the weight evenly but thats just my body.

              Bought this bag to protect my D800E with 14-24mm lens during big hikes as I did not want to carry my bigger Lowepro as it was heavy. This is a light weight compact bag. I was surprised that it fits my D800 + 14-24mm Nikkor. The side opening is a bit small but can't complain about it. It is not meant for pro cameras with pro lens. But exactly what I was looking for. I just slid the bad in my bigger hiking backpack and actually did not feel much weight from the bag itself.

                  I have a Nikon with several lenses up to a 300mm. I wanted to have my camera and 300mm lense attached with the lense shade in the bag so that It is easy to pull out and use. It worked great and I can store my wide angle lense in the side pouch quick and easy. You can arrange your equipment in a varity of ways. I would recommend this to anyone who is on the go and wants hands free until you are ready to use your camera.

                    Works great with my canon 100to400mm lens I use for wildlife photography. Its easy to get out with the lens hood on, just what I was hoping for.
                    I like everything about it, if I had four arms and four hands I would buy another one

                    Great bag, really happy. I was on the fence about size and if it could fit my lenses but I am happy plus I have space to fit some other stuff. Thanks

                      This might be the best backpack I've ever owned. The versatility of the inner compartments is awesome, and it is very comfortable to wear with the one diagonal strap with or without the connector strap if you want a more secure fit. One of my favorite features is how easily accessible your camera is with the bottom/side pocket when you slide the bag around to your front side.

                        perfect for everyday camera bag, 1 lens, flash, gopro, 24-105 lens, canon 6d w/ 50mm, and some times also a change of gym clothes.
                        i love the weather cover thats built in.
                        decent quality build.

                        This compact bag carries my Lumix GH3, 2 additional lenses, flash, filters, tripod and still has room for my Ipad.

                        It's comfortable to carry and the price was good as usual at B&H.

                        The only drawback is the somewhat limited ability to resize the inner sections.

                        Now I can carry my MFT kit light and easy.

                          I use it for carrying a Nikon D600 and 3 lens (70-200, 24-85 and 50) or two lens and a flash. It can be organized in different ways (even works when the 70-200 is on the camera).

                          Very easy access to camera, comfortable and just exactly what I need.

                            This bag is the perfect size for my camera equipment. I am not a professional, but still have a lot of lenses and this is great because I can keep everything in one convenient spot. I am looking forward to taking this on trips with me and think it will be just perfect.

                              Great bag to carry for days you just need your camera and light gear- very comfortable and looks great! I bought the bigger size too for days I need all my gear.
