The bag is very compact.
John
Lastly, when the bag is rotated to the side or front to access the camera, the position is awkward and difficult to unzip quickly.

As is typical for Lowepro, the 250 Urban Photo Sling is a great bag for everyday use.

My reasons for looking at this bag were pretty simple: I wanted a bag that I could carry my 70-200 f2.8 attached to the camera in along with another lens or two that wasn't too big. In these regards the bag performs as advertised. Now while the bag's buiild it very good I do have some reservations about it.

1. When carried on the "right" side of the opened bag, as pictured by lowepro, the lens hood for my Sigma 70-200 catches on the strap that is there to help hold the center wall in position. Reversing the position of my lenses in the bag (putting the big lens under the strap) does make it easier to pull out the lens but it does alter the camera's body possition when attached.

2. I find the top of the bag a little hard to open far enough to make camera access easy. I may be better at it and find it works but it doesn't quite seem to open up the entire top for easy access.

I can't comment on the tablet pocket as I do not have one of those at this time.

If you have a large camera body with an extra grip in will probably be too big for this bag. My little DSLR fits fine I had looked at buying this bag from a photographer using a big bodied camera with grip who said it doesn't fit.

The slot for an extra card will hold one card in what I'd consider the standard protective case but it's tight.

Finally I can not comment on the bags wear characteristics at this time. I am a big guy and it seem to fit but I haven't worn it for a long period of time.

For reference what I currently have in the bag's main section are a Rebel body attached to either a Sigma 70-200 2.8 or Sigma's 17-70 with enough space left for my 18-55 kit lens.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Over the years, I have tried a few different SLR backpacks, sling packs, and messenger bags. This is the first one that I have tried that is both easy to access and comfortable when walking miles at a time. The wide curved padded strap makes it comfortable when carrying a typical SLR camera load (body, 2 or 3 lenses, flash, and misc accessories). Other one-strap bags dig into one point on my shoulder, while this strap wraps around my body to distribute the weight. With backpacks, I almost always have to take the pack off to get at my camera, especially if I want to change lenses. This bag normally rides on my back, but I can easily slide it to my right hip to get to the main opening. You can rearrange the interior partitions to fit your gear. Since the top opening of this pack is so large (unlike many sling bags), reaching anything inside is pretty easy.

I use a 7" Android tablet, so the tablet slot is pleanty big for me.

This bag comes in a couple of different sizes. The 250 size is not huge, but it is more than enough for any load that I would want to carry all day. I'm even thinking about buying the smaller size as well to reduce the bulk on all-day trips.

My only caution is that the bag appears to be designed for right-handed people. If you are left handed, you should try it out first to make sure your camera is easy to reach. On the other hand, most (or all) SLR cameras are designed with most of the controls on the right hand, so maybe you are used to this issue already.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is my first time using a sling style pack. I've owned a few other Lowepro backpacks in the past and know they have a great reputation for having well made products. The Lowepro 250 Urban Photo Sling lived up to those expectations, but with a few features that could be improved.

Aesthetically, the 250 Urban Sling is pleasantly understated with an all black exterior. I like that there are no eye catching colors that would draw attention to the pack. I also like the front flap that clips onto the sides of the main body of the bag to help protect your bag from opening up and having gear accidentally fall out, or from someone trying to access the compartment while you're wearing it. The flap also covers the smaller outside compartment and is held down by velcro. This would help deter someone from trying to take something out of that compartment without you knowing.

The pack is well constructed and has a good amount of padding to protect your gear. Like most other camera bags, the main compartment can be configured in many ways to accommodate the different sizes of your equipment. There are also elastic straps that are held down by velcro that cover individual compartments to keep your lenses in place, this is a very nice feature. The bag can hold quite a bit more gear than it would appear. The equipment I normally carry is a Canon 50D with battery grip attached to a 70-200 2.8is and 24-105, with the last compartment carrying either a nifty-fifty, 10-22, or an external flash. The outer compartment holds some filters, a small LED flashlight, and an intervalometer remote. Although I don't take it along with me, I test fitted my first generation iPad that has a slim case into the tablet compartment and it does fit, very tightly though.

The reason why I bought this is that I can use the bag for a camera and 70-200 f2.8 attached and carry two other accessories. Also I can easily swing it forward and take the camera. Unlike backpack where you need to remove it off your shoulder. Its does that really well. The bag is very compact. Looks small but easily can carry a full frame like 5d mark III, 70-200 f/2.8, 24-70 f/2.8 and also 17-35. Also can manage to squeeze in the nifty fifty beside the camera(not secure).
I love the compactness, the build is great, the zips move smoothly. The only issue I have is that due to the weight it get a bit uncomfortable esp to the neck area due to the pull in that area. Now I found that if I remove the opposing waist band(tucked in the lower end of the bag) and tie it(literally tie like a rope) to pull the strap in the opposite direction it makes it a lot lot more comfortable. I wish it had a clip to clip it on. I then saw that its already been implemented in the following bag Case Logic DCB-308-BLACK (You can see in one of the images with one of the guy in a grey sweater). Also another thing I noticed is that it does not stand upright when its fully loaded. It topples to one side. Another thing I noticed is that it touches my tail bone. I found that its a bit uncomfortable. I did make the strap shorter and it strains my neck. I did not try putting in an ipad. The camera with 70-200 fits really well with an inch or so left when you put it in. I am guessing my issues are due to the fact that I use heavy gear.
