    I’m considering this bag as an alternative to the Slingshot 200 or 202 AW. It’s because it has the sling functionality while still keeping the comfort of the backpack.

    I wish they made this bag a lot slimmer, maybe a version for cameras with no battery grip…..

    Wow great review thank you, I am now almost positive I might buy this bag.

    From your point of view though, do you think I can fit a d90 w/grip and 50mm (as quick access part), another body, a flash, 18-105mm, and 70-300mm in the camera compartment?

    @RentnerSpassV I’ve traveled with this bag a lot and will be doing so again this weekend. When the bag is completely full it will just barely fit under the seat in front of you. Without a laptop it should fit fine. And it is very small for th e overhead bin, especially when compared to the size of bags people take as carry-ons these days. So, in short, it should not present any problem for air travel.

    So not even Alexa Internet will show even the web traffic statistic for the website shown in the video. It’s a bit of a disappointment. But then again, there are other great photography blogs I can follow. Thanks anyway!

    Heeey I got that tshirt too. Is it the bubba gump on times square? I went to new york to celebrate new years eve 2010. Oh and the The Shrimpin’ Dippin’ Broth is really great.

    But hey, great review.

    Great video! How does the quality of the 28-135 compare to the 24-70? I am looking into getting a 28-135 as an all around lens for my XTi. Do you have a website or Flickr for your pictures?

    @looftastic the main upper and lower compartments hold up well to rain. The upper compartment has a plastic lining on the outside. This is how I would estimate the bag’s rainproof capabilities based on my limited experience.

    1. drizzle/light – all day,
    2. moderate – 4+ hours´╗┐ of exposure
    3. heavy – 2+ hours of exposure
    4. monsoon – 30min to 1 hour

    I was pleased with how well it held up.

    @Thundertits8D Fitting all that in the camera compartment would be tough. I think you could fit the following in the camera compartment if you tried. D90+grip+50mm, flash, 2nd body. Also you could put in the 18-105 or the 70-300, but not both….unless the 70-300 could go in depth-wise, then maybe you could get them both in there, but I doubt it. Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the review! Saw the bag at Digital Photography, and it’s what I need. Read reviews, helped. Watching your video, helped A LOT!

    Thank You aparker1981!

    Nice review, thanks for the info. It seems that my nikon D700 with battery grip will fit nicely in the caqmer compartment. What I am really wondering about is what about the size when traveling on the airplanes? With the new restrictions of carry-on luggage especially for international travel, this is a major concern of mine. Can you give any advice about that?

    Thanks for your quick answer!. I’ve checked witht he airlines for carry-on size and both the 250 and 350 seem to meet the requirements. I’ll be going to the local shop next week to check them out. I’ve also seen another similar bag which has a flap on either side- i.e. left or right handers. It’s more than 2x the price of the Lowepro but I can’t see that feature being worth that much. Again, thanks for the info- it’s a big help!

    Hey, is your website (blog) closed down or something? Because when I type in the full URL address as shown in the video I get the message that the server is not responding. I use Firefox 3.6.8. I did a quick Google search and I clicked on the fourth link in the result list which is the statistics page for that website on Alexa Internet web traffic website and I got the “504 Gateway Time-out” message telling me that the server did not respond in time.
