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.
