A novel camera bag that is suitable for casual camera use,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lowepro SlingShot 202 AW Photo Sling Pack (Electronics)Well what can I say, its a camera bag. The novel way the bag is slung over the shoulder, and can be slung back in front of you to get easy access to your camera is very cool. Its comfortable, however unless you use the additional support strap, (which clips onto the main shoulder strap) it can slope off and down your back,this is not a major issue, providing you are not planning to run around.
The 202 AW is a suitable size for a DSLR and up to 70-300mm lens fitted (I use this with my 1000d and tele lens fitted), access to other lens is not so easy, you really need to take the bag off your shoulder. But for casual use and no lens changing its fine. It has a decent amount of storage space, and you can carry a few spare lens or accessories in the main body of the bag or in the top section.
Overall I would recommend to a casual snapper, but for anyone who is more enthusiast than beginner, I would recommend the 302 AW. Now I've bought this, I won't invest in the 300, its bigger but it still only really lends itself to a casual photographer.

I have the 202 AW and think it's perfect for when I want to take my DSLR out (along with a few bits and pieces) but don't want the hassle of having to lug around the camera bag I have which contains all my kit (another Lowepro). I think the design is good, works well and easily fits my 5D and 24-105mm lens...I agree with the 'casual snapper' comment because anybody with more than a basic amount of kit just wouldn't be able to manage with ONLY this bag.
Have just bought the 302 AW as I'm going on a trip to NY and want to be able to take my 70-200mm, which the 202 AW just won't fit...ironically (and I've only had the 302 for a day), the 302 seems a little too big and kind of defeats the object of why I originally bought the 202. I suppose I want the best of both worlds: the storage of the 302 and the external size of the 202 which unless Lowepro find some kind of 'tardis' technology, just isn't possible.
