    Comments about Manfrotto Advanced Active Sling I (Black):

    I use the bag to carry my Nikon D750 with a Nikon 24-70 f2.8 zoom on it, my Nikon 70-200 f2.8 as spare lense, my Nikon flash SB900, my Nikon cleaning bag, a small bag for the battery chargers, 3 Nikon Lithium batteries, all cables, the rain protecting covers.
    In the band there is space for 8 batteries AA for the flash.
    I confess I underestimated the size and the efficient utilization of the bag, which is simply fantastic, exactly what I was looking for to carry everything I normally need in the smallest and lightest way.

    Sturdy construction, but somewhat bulky

    By HVS

    from Naples, Florida

    Comments about Manfrotto Advanced Active Sling I (Black):

    The sling easily holds my Canon 5d Mark III with a 70-300 lens attached. Plus another lens and miscellaneous gear. The zipper and latch release provide quick access to anything in the sling. When carried on the back, weight is well distributed and the sling is comfortable to wear. When strapped in the front, the sling is bulky and somewhat restricts visibility directly to the front view, especially while climbing down steep terrain.

    Comments about Manfrotto Advanced Active Sling I (Black):

    I purchased this to see if it would work for me. As it turns it is pretty great. The weight can be redistributed from front to back. And, if your back get sore or tired, just swing it around to a different position.

    Great materials and contruction. The bag is a bit too wide when you are actually wearing it, otherwise, would have given 4 stars.

      Comments about Manfrotto Advanced Active Sling I (Black):

      There is a serious flaw in the design of this back. When you sling it to your front the hatch opens the wrong way meaning it is more difficult than it should to get inside the back.
