I bought this bag for a specific purpose - traveling light with minimal equipment and having quick sling access. Being the smallest bag in this series, it's not meant to cram loads of gear in -- keep that in mind. However, if you want to protect your gear AND travel lite, this bag will work well. It has a built-in rain cover and tripod strap system. This is what I carry in it: Nikon D7000, attached 28-300mm lens, Hoya 77mm rubber lens hood, spare memory cards, wireless remote trigger, Hoodman loupe, Hakuba hand strap, spare battery, 77mm polarizer, 77mm vari-ND filter, lenspens, rocket blower, cleaning cloths, Black Rapid strap, Op/Tech camera rain covers, Gary Fong popup flash diffuser and a few personal misc items. The camera, filters & battery go in the lower compartment, everything else in the upper one. My bag weights in at less than 7 lbs -- a little more if I take a beanbag tripod. I usually don't carry a tripod with this bag but I can strap a jacket there instead when needed. This bag gets it done for me when I want to travel lite. The downsize to this bag is that it is small so you can't carry all your gear. But when's the last time you saw a lady carry her suitcase purse to a cocktail party?

I travel a lot and decided to buy a slingshot bag for my SLR. I have two Olympus lenses and one of my telephoto is too big to fit. Perhaps not most of SLR lenses will fit into this bag. Very convinient to carry. Most pockets have use on it and the best part, it has a place to put your tripod. Like I said very simple yet needs more adjustment. There's another version of this but it looks very bulky to wear. Maybe a little adjustments inside the area of the lenses and camera will be a perfect idea.

Not disappointed

By D

Comments about Lowepro SlingShot 102 AW Camera Bag:

Took a chance buying this bag. I wasn't sure if everything that I had would fit in it. To my surprise, there was room left over! My biggest concern was, will my camera with lens fit. Well....a Nikon D5500 with an 18-140mm lens attached, does fit without worry, along with lens cleaning kit, rocket blaster, charger, spare battery, filters, a shutter release, and a couple of memory cards. The bag is a bit awkward to wear with a tripod strapped to it, but I should have bought a smaller tripod. All in all, it fits my needs and I am not disappointed.

Comments about Lowepro SlingShot 102 AW Camera Bag:

I've owned (and still use) the original SlingShot 100 from when it first came out. When I bought a new DSLR, I passed my older one to my girlfriend and ordered her the new 102 Model. She loves it! Ample storage space for the camera, and allows her to utilize the extra space for items she would otherwise carry in a purse, therefore making this a one bag solution.

Perfect size sling

By Transform Studios

Verified Buyer

Comments about Lowepro SlingShot 102 AW Camera Bag:

Love this camera sling. Perfect size for my Canon 5D Mk IV with a 16-35mm lens w/hood and an extra 50mm lens w/hood. Hold CF, SD cards and extra batteries. Great for walking around in the city or a day of hiking or fishing. Low profile narrow design helps minimize fatigue when carrying all day. Definitely recommend this camera sling. Thank you B&H for having it in stock and the fast shipping as always!

Great for day excursions with m43 gear.

By Christian

Verified Buyer

Comments about Lowepro SlingShot 102 AW Camera Bag:

Ideal for the m43 camera and 3 lenses. Needs a little more room for 40-150mm f/2.8 Oly. Fits the 7-14mm, 12-40mm, fixed lens of your choice and m43 body. Leica table top tripod on side. Misc items in top pocker.
Ideally should have been 0.5" wider and 1" taller... But the depth is ideal for m43, the next size up it too big and geared for full frame body. The 40-150mm will fit, but no room for the body!

This sling bag does not have a waist strap and so slides off my shoulder constantly.

Another Perfect Fit

By Mac

from Fallon NV

Comments about Lowepro SlingShot 102 AW Camera Bag:

I reviewed many different camera bags before I chose the SlingShot 102. It easily holds my daughter's D5300 and two lenses (18-55mm and 55-200mm).

She is very happy with it. It is light-weight, easy to carry and quickly swings around to get the camera.

Exactly what I was looking for

By Em

from Brasov, Romania

Verified Buyer

Comments about Lowepro SlingShot 102 AW Camera Bag:

I was looking for a bag that would hold my camera (canon6D ) and possibly one other lens securely, comfortable, easy access on the go but not the bulging obvious camera shoulder bag. I actually made a backpack, and slingback for travel but after a while it started to fail.
This low pro slingshot bag was exactly what I needed. The size was perfect to accommodates my camera with lens & hood, one other lens if I want, travel tripod, and space for spare battery, memory, and small journal and little things. It's padded for security and has adjustable padding. Lots of pockets, convenient zippers and latches. I'm a 5'2" small frame Asian woman and this bag fits comfortably on my frame with great ease in swinging from the back to the front to access the camera.
I have carried it around in the snowy mountains for 5 hours without feeling the load. It stayed tethered close as it was part of my body but I could reach for the camera with a quick motion.
