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.

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.

I recently purchased the Urban Photo Sling 250 to replace the Lowepro Passport as my primary travel pack. I wanted a bag that could hold more camera gear than the Passport, but that was lighter and more secure to carry than my Tamrac Rally 5.

When I first unboxed it, I was a bit apprehensive; I took a chance with the Urban Sling because I wanted a bag that was relatively compact, while having the potential hold a fair amount of gear, but it looked even smaller than I was expecting. After toying around with the interior dividers, however, I managed to fit more in that little pack than I believed possible. In its current configuration, it is comfortably carrying a Sony A900 with an attached Minolta 24-50mm f/4, a Minolta 17-35mm f/2.8-3.5, and a Minolta 75-210mm f/4 beercan (as its nickname indicates, about the size of a large beercan), and an Acer Aspire One 10-inch netbook. In addition, I have the small Sony HVL-F20AM flash stored in one of the front interior pockets (padded with one of the extra dividers I didn't need), along with an extra CF card, battery, USB cable, remote, etc. If there is one aspect of this bag that shines above all others, it has got to be the carrying capacity.

Fit-wise, the Urban Sling took some getting used to. The first time I loaded it and tried it on, the weight distribution was uneven, the shoulder strap was stiff, and as a result, I couldn't get it to sit right. After wearing it for a few days, however, it has gotten a little better - I am not entirely sure if it is getting broken in or if I'm just getting used to it, but I am starting to find I can wear it around for some time without any of the discomfort I initially felt.

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.
