Poor access, excessive padding,
This review is from: Lowepro Classified 140 AW Shoulder Bag for DSLR and Accessories for Canon 550D, 500D, 1000D, Nikon D3000, Samsung NX10, PL1, Panasonic G2, Sony Alpha A450 - Sepia (Electronics)
I much prefer to try a bag before I buy but shops only seem to stock the same old selection of Nova & Slingshot, so, mail order it had to be, after much research and checking internal dimensions. The bag does work for me, I can put my biggest lens (70-300) onto my Nikon D60 and it fits, by the skin of its teeth.
The bag is extrememly well made but it manages the trick of being big on the outside and exceedingly small on the inside. The front pockets are padded and filled with a (fortunately removable) large, padded roll to hold at least 6 memory cards. That came out straight away. If you carry extra cards then the bag itself is already heavily, probably even excessively, padded. Is a large padded roll really necessary?
The opening to the bag, as mentioned in another review, is very tight, A single, straight zip is the only access. You then have to roll back the heavily padded sides if you want to rummage in the bottom. Anything other than just putting your camera in/out is a fight, and even that is not as straightforward as it could be.
I didn't want a sling type bag, though they have much bettter access so I'll stick with this.
