If youre considering this bag at all go ahead and get it i'm SURE you'll be happy with it.
The second reason I'm looking for a new bag, is accessibility to my gear. If you put all the spacers in the bag, the way they were meant to be, then you can only access your lenses by fully opening the zipper compartment. This means taking the bag off the shoulder, setting it down, and opening the bag fully to get to your lenses, or whatever you have put into the well-padded compartments. You can get around this by changing dividers a bit, but then things don't seem to fit as well. I really like a bag you can open while it is on your shoulders and allows you full access to your lenses, flash, etc. You cannot do this with this type of bag.
I can fit my Canon 7d, 10-22mm, 17-85mm, and 50 mm lenses, 580 EX II flash, extension tube set, converter, into this bag with no problem. However, my 70-200mm 2.8 doesn't fit into it with the other lenses. Also, it would be nice to be able to fit my camera with a mounted 70-200mm into the bag. This can only happen if I take out most of the lenses, and rearrange the dividers. So it's a compromise. I'm not faulting the bag for this, I just want buyers to know there are limitations with its capacity.
I am looking at messenger-style bags right now (Crumpler), so that I can carry all my gear and have access to it by just opening the flap. For hikes, I may take the Lowepro and essential gear. We'll see. I have a trip to New Zealand coming up and I will take both bags and see how things work out.
All this said, I think this is a great sling bag, and has not shown hardly any signs of wear over the years. I'm not pro, but have taken this bag on many trips, and it still looks great.
I got this bag for travel with my camera, and one of the reviews I read before getting this bag was to get the Slingshot 200 instead of the Slingshot 100 (what I'd initially considered). EXCELLENT piece of advice!! The 200 isn't as big as you're probably afraid it will be, and I can carry both my lenses; the lens hood; and the rubber Giottos air blower to clean the lenses.
As an aside, if you're swapping lenses out fairly frequently, it's a must to carry the blower with you...otherwise you'll wind up seeing flecks in your viewfinder and have no way to get them out. Therefore, the bag you get also has to be able to accommodate a blower. I will tell you that both the hood and the blower are snug fits in two of the compartments, but I still have the 4th compartment empty.
If the lenses you use are more in number or longer than what I've described here, you'll probably want to go with the 300.
There is a nice memory card holder on the inside flap; and the all-weather covering is stealthily hidden on the backside.
The bag has much more padding for your back than I expected; and the foam compartments inside the bag are sturdier than I would have thought. The top zippered area on the back of the bag is not quite as useful as it maybe could be, but still a good, safe place to throw keys, and/or a 20-oz bottle, and a manual too. The bottom zippered pocket is great for storing an extra battery, the Nikon lens pen, filters, and other smaller items. My tripod doesn't fit in either slot on the outside of the bag, but a monopod would fit there.
All in all, I would highly recommend this bag. I was very pleasantly surprised with the design and construction.
