Very very good bag, highly recomended.

While I use it as a purse/camera bag, my husband can carry it without looking like he's carrying a purse.

What I like the best is that camera bag that didn't look like a bag.

I purchased the Lowepro Passport Sling for my recent trip to Italy. I wanted an easy access, stylish camera bag to use while I travelled. I carried a Canon 7D with it's 18-135mm lens, my 70-200mm, 2.8L lens, a few memory cards and filters. The bag functioned very well and was comfortable to use, easy to access. The padded area for my camera and it's primary lens was barely big enough. A Rebel would have fit very comfortably, but my camera was very tight. I would have liked to have had my battery grip on too, but there was no way it would have fit. I had plenty of room for my 70-200mm, 2.8L, but the area in the bag that it fit had no extra padding, so I had to add my own with a crunched up t-shirt.

The improvements that I would recommend would be as follows: make the bag slightly larger to accommodate a full size camera more comfortably; add some extra padding in a secondary compartment to protect a second lens and/or flash unit; and lastly, add zippers to the external pockets of the bag to hold a passport, money, filters, etc. more securely.

I purchased this bag to use with the Canon T2i with the kit lens. I initially did not like the bag's rigid structure. I'm a petite woman, and this bag hung awkwardly on my back.

However, after spending 6 weeks carrying this bag around Ethiopia, I can honestly say I don't think I could have found a more perfect camera bag for travel. This bag is definitely not for someone with a lot of camera gear. But it is a great all-in-one for someone who wants their camera bag to hold all their other essentials, as well.

The padded camera pocket is divided and held my camera with lens attached, as well as a small extra lens (Canon "nifty-fifty"). I also toted a glasses case, water bottle, granola bars, and sunscreen in the large inner pouch. The inner pockets were great for holding my iPod nano, extra memory cards, and a cell phone. The outer pockets were perfect for hand sanitizer, lotion, kleenex, a small notepad, pens, and more snacks.

On the plane I carried this bag along with a backpack. Unzipping the large pouch allowed space for a travel pillow and a change of clothes.

I found the padded section of the bag strap to be unnecessary and never wore it. The strap alone was comfortable enough, even without the padded support.

After beating this bag up for weeks, it still looks like new. The material is rugged and durable. And my camera was always safe. Fellow travelers were constantly digging through bags and struggling to access cameras. The sling design made it easy for me to quickly grab my camera, and the various pockets kept everything organized.

I think the right camera bag for specific certain situation is as important as the stuff you put into it. I have been looking for a simple camera bag that lets me carry a DSLR, one additional lens, a flash, some filters and some personal stuff, without getting in your way or looking super-ugly. Sounds simple, but has obviously been hard to accomplish for the manufacturers so far (particularly the last two points).

The passport sling is perfect for this in every regard. Just the right size for the above mentioned things, comfortable to wear and it just looks like a cool bag, not like a typical camera bag. In contrast to many backpacks, you can actually change lenses while standing without taking it off. The expandable space makes the functionality perfect.

Camera vests and belt packs are probably the best gear for nature and wildlife photographers traveling light, but in my opinion the way they look (and make you look) is simply a disaster. If you feel the same way, this is your bag.

I have been looking for a bag that I can comfortably carry my SLR camera and extra lens along with my personal belongings comfortably. This is the answer! I have the lowepro 350 laptop/camera bookbag for those long travels and when having everything together on an airplane, but was in need of a practicle everyday bag.

I have been using the black one for over a week now. I find it so handy. I did buy velcro to secure the outside pockets and now safely keep my checkbook, notepad, and pens in those pockets. I cut a piece of cardboard to fit my phone and covered it with felt and put it in the phone pocket for extra padding and support for my iphone4. I also bought a small cosmetics bag to keep a few personal items all together i.e. lipgloss, ponytail holders, etc. The small consmetics bag fits perfect with my wallet and a few other things, all without opening it the extra 30%. At first I thought it may be heavy with my camera, but it is worth having it with me safely at all times. I believe this is a bag I will use for a very long time and am happy I bought 2 colors.

I bought my first DSLR last November and so I'm a newbie in the DSLR world. I needed something to transport/protect my new investment so I started my search. I was happy with my first purchase, the Timbuk2 DSLR messenger bag that was made specifically to house both a laptop and a DSLR. However I realized there were times where I just wanted to carry around the DSLR and not have an entire messenger bag with me. I didn't want something that screamed out "expensive DSLR here, please rob me now." Enter the Lowepro Passport Sling. It looked nice and compact in size and looked like it would fit my needs. After I purchased it, it was my new favorite bag! I love having my DSLR handy with me at all times to capture any photo moment and this bag allows me to conveniently do just that!

OUTSIDE STORAGE:
It's a good travel bag where I can keep my wallet, DSLR, and a few other small miscellaneous items. I have used the zipper extension part a couple times when I carried more things than the bag could fit, but I prefer it zipped up smaller so it's not as bulky. It doesn't make it intensely bulky, but its more compact and in my opinion looks better smaller. There is also a side slot-like pocket also allows me to carry a water bottle and on both sides more side slot-storage pockets as well to clip a spare pen and sometimes I shove small papers there temporarily. They are not sealed pockets though, but snug enough to keep papers in.

INSIDE STORAGE:
There is a small mini pocket inside to store extra memory cards. There are also two little storage pockets that have a velcro enclosure. I've fit random small items like medicine bottles, flash drives, nail clippers, etc. and sometimes all of those items at once in one of the pockets.
