📷 This backpack has served me well over the years, between trips and even camping. If something ever did happen to this bag, I definitely would get another one (used - since I do not think they make it anymore). Anyway, if you are looking for a good backpack to protect all your camera equipment, you cannot go wrong with Lowepro, as they clearly make good quality products. :)
Why 2 Stars? I do have an issue with the rain protector as it is ripped in a small section around the lining. It is almost like when being made the sewing machine missed a part of the stitching and as a result there is an opening and I am sure this will prevent me from being able to protect my gear if a sudden rain storm catches me off guard.
I ordered 3 of these over a month's time and all 3 had the same tear. I did contact Amazon and they were going to pull the product offline, but since it was not an Amazon listed product they could not do so. I was offered a refund and the Amazon rep told me they had no way of knowing if and when this would be fixed. I needed a bag so I kept it, but I am in Florida and the rain guard was a key reason for me even trying this out. I agree that anyone in their right mind would never rely on a rain guard no matter what, but the weather here can be tricky and something is better than nothing if you get caught off guard.
Anyway with the tear I would not trust it even in the most dire of emergencies and continue to shop for another bag that offers the space and backpack-like features of this bag.
Hope it helps!
I ended up keeping the last one sent to me even though it did have a rip in the rain protector. Changed my star rating as well. Can't very well justify 1 star when I ended up keeping a somewhat defective product. I did have the option of sending back for a full refund, but I really do like the bag.
this bag looks nice but can't really be appreciated, however, until you use it in the field. that's where you see how intelligently and intuitively it's designed. just swing the monostrap and the bag rotates for easy access; memory cards have their own designated compartment; the front pocket can fit pens, filters, and business cards; the top pocket easily holds a speedlight plus it has a mesh pocket for batteries; there's a side strap for stability when hiking or biking; a rain cover tucks into its own pocket and also provides further protection from thieves without looking too dorky; there's two clippable slots for a water bottle or cel phone case; and two quick-release buckles that allow access to camera without dislodging all your expensive glass. the monostrap also has a QR, is well-padded, and fully adjustable. best of all, it doesn't look like a camera bag.
the cons to this bag would be mainly that it's a bit of a tweener -- bigger than a minimalist kit and not big enough for a full complement of pro glass. it can reasonably hold 3 lenses; for more than that you need a backpack or the slingshot 300 (which might be a bit too bulky and too heavy when fully loaded to lug around for more than a couple hours at a time). another downside is there's little room for non-camera gear. you could maybe fit a bagel or a soft drink into the top pocket. and, at around $90, there are cheaper alternatives.
but still, the slingshot 200 does what it's designed to do. it's well-thought out, with details like reverse-coil zippers, and well-made. it just feels like quality. ultimately, that and the conveience of being able to pull out your camera without removing the pack (though you will have to take it off to get at your other lenses) make it worth it for shutterbugs who want to travel reasonably light.
So for women whose breasts may be sensitive, I suggest you find another type of bag -- a full backpack like Kata or a regular camera bag.
Those women who have no problem having their breasts squeezed or flattened will LOVE this bag. Nothing beats the ease of getting to one's camera, already in position, without having to take the whole pack off or futzing around with clips that have to be pressed or unlatched.
Love the idea, but physically too uncomfortable.
