Selecting a camera bag can be difficult. I've purchased and sold many camera bags over the years for one reason or another; too small, too big, too unwieldy, lacking a key feature that I need, etc. but the SS 200 is one bag I'll keep until it wears out. I've owned the SS 200 now for over a year and have taken it on several international trips where it performed beautifully. this bag is excellent for both casual and serious/professional photographers.

I currently own several bags, including photo backpacks, two sizes of the Lowepro sling bags (Slingshot 200 reviewed here and the new 300 - limited, if any, public availability at this point), a Crumpler shoulder bag, and other types of camera bags from different manufacturers, all in varying sizes. I'm also familiar with all the "high end" bag manufacturers such as ThinkTank, Kinesis, et. al. and all the alternative systems such as waist belts, vests, etc. It's important to remember that most photographers will need more than one bag depending on what they're shooting that day and the one thing I can say is that in an imperfect world of compromises, this is the closest I've come to being satisfied with a single bag.

I'm a long time Canon user so I'll use Canon equipment as a reference and you can check the size of your camera/lenses for fit against these comments. Those using Nikon and other manufactures can do the same. All sizes, weights, dimensions for your brand can easily be found on the web. OK, so here's what I like about this bag.....

1) It holds a compact to large SLR comfortably though my larger cameras (1 series film and digital cameras) with an extended battery grip are a tight fit. For traveling I use a smaller digital camera (5d) with or without a grip, but a 1.

This is the best photo bag I've ever used for general purpose. It's full of features for a digital photographer. I shoot with a Canon 20D (with the grip attached), and have no problem fitting the camera into the bag even with my EF 24-70 f/2.8L attached (hood reversed). I can also squeeze in my 70-200 f/4L with a little creativity. In addition, I can carry two primes in the second lens pocket. The two external pockets are very generous. One has a mesh pocket, the other a small organizer for pens and a pad. In the top, I tend to squeeze the shooting essentials (430EX flash, cable release, polarizers, ND filters, lens cleaning stuff, and batteries or just a raincoat for iffy days) and tend to use the front pocket for random stuff I pick up while out shooting. Flashcards fit nicely into a built in card carrier (fits four in plastic cases). The "sling" system is very easy to use (and confortable) and the all-weather cover is terrific (stores away inside a small compartment at the base of the bag). The all-weather cover can stand up to the worst conditions; I've used it in a torrential downpour while walking across Nicaragua. Everything stayed dry. All in all, this bag is fabulous. If you use a vertical grip or a pro-SLR, you've gotta go with the 200, though. The 100 is just too small for my camera body and lenses. I also encourage you to pick up some lowepro sliplock attachments that can fit to the outside of the bag. With one or two, you can pretty much carry anything you could ever need for a day of shooting.

I got this bag as a gift, and after getting used to it, I absolutely love it. It is a little smaller than my Micro Trekker 200, so it didn't hold all my equipment--I had to take out my second SLR body, but after some creative fitting, it holds my EOS 10D with 28-105mm lens attached, my 100-300mm L series lens, a 17-35mm wide angle lens, 420EX flash, as well as an assortment of extension tubes, tele-extender, filters, etc. The nicest feature of the bag is that you can swing it from your back to your front and open the side of it to pull your camera out. Everything in your bag is accessible without removing your backpack. It is equipped with the digital photographer in mind, with a pocket for memory cards and a protective cloth for the LCD panel on the back of your SLR.

The one drawback is that it's narrow. I wanted to set it up so that I could put my Canon 10D attached to my Canon EF 100-300mm L lens, and it was an extremely tight fit. Nevertheless, I find it a great backpack.

Which size to buy? I purchased both the Slingshot 200 and 300. I was concerned that there would not be sufficient room in the Slingshot 200 for my Nikon D200 with a 18-200 lens and lens hood mounted, so I purchased the Slingshot 300 first. When I dropped my camera setup into the Slingshoot 300 it was apparent that this bag was designed for bigger gear than I was carrying. I purchased the Slingshot 200 and my D200 with lens and hood fit nicely with plenty of rooms for extras like a normal and wide angle lenses and a flash.

There is also a difference in how the Slingshoot 200 and 300 are secured to your back. Both have the diagonal shoulder strap. The Slingshot 200 has a second strap that is attached to the bag near my right hip and clips into the shoulder strap around mid chest. This provides enough addtional stability to keep the bag in place while actively moving about. The Slingshot 300 has a more traditional hip belt as the additional stability method. As someone else stated, if you have put a fairly heavy load in your bag, the hip belt is effective at carrying the weight.

Overall both the Slingshots are great bags. The size difference and the stabilty straps are the only appreciable difference between them. I used my Slingshot 200 all weekend long while skiing. It was very comfortable, easily accessible, and not cumbersome at all. I think the Slingshot 300 would have been a little bit of a challenge to carry given its size, for example getting on the chairlift I would have had to swing it around to the front.

Great camera bags that I am sure I will enjoy for many years.
