Product Description

Lowepro is one of the trusted original and professional photographers have relied on their products since 1967. These photographers carry Lowepro bags all over the world - in every kind of climate and in every kind of condition - and rely on the inventive designs to provide protection, accessibility, comfort and durability they can trust. Get the optimum flexibility and fast access with the Transit Sling 250 AW. Designed to adapt to your carrying needs, this discreet camera sling gives you fast access with no compromises.

The UltraFlex fit system offers versatile ways to fit, organise and protect your camera and personal gear. Use the bag in fast-access mode for those impromptu moments or reconfigure into vertical mode to carry a longer lens (up to a 70-200 mm f/2.8).

When you carry your gear over long periods of time, comfort is essential. The ergonomic sling strap design helps evenly distribute the weight while the stow-away stabilising waist strap secures the sling to your body when on the move. And the padded, mesh-covered backpack gives you soft and breathable wearing comfort. Timing is everything - especially when you want to capture those candid shots. The fast-access side opening allows rapid gear access via a zippered compartment. Simply rotate the sling from back to front to access your camera without ever having to take off the bag.

The front stash pocket with built-in key fob offers quick access to personal items such as your phone and keys. Shooting conditions and your creative vision will call for you carry a tripod on your shoots. The Hideaway Tripod Mount secures a compact tripod to the side of the bag when you need to carry your tripod and it discreetly tucks away when not in use. You understand the importance of protecting your camera gear from damage; make sure you treat your tablet the same way. You can protect it and stay connected to the digital world with a dedicated and padded tablet compartment.

Fits Mirrorless Cameras, The roomy interior can accommodate all the extras you'll want to have on hand: a flash, extra lenses, filters, etc. Fits DSLR + Extra Lens. when you want fast access to your go-to camera set-up, your tablet and a few accessories. The roomy interior can accommodate a few extra items like a flash, light meter or extra lenses. Fits DSLR + 70-200 f/2.8. When you need to carry a telephoto lens, such as the 70-200 mm f/2.8, you can reconfigure the UltraFlex fit system into a vertical mode. For shots that require a bigger lens, this mode gives you the ample and protective space you need.

Fits all personal items. If you're traveling and taking time off from shooting, use the sling as a fully functional day bag. You can pull out the dividers and use the main compartment for a day's worth of creature comforts, lunch, a favourite magazine or guide book - anything you need at a moment's notice. You still can keep your tablet in the dedicated and padded compartment. Or lighten the load and go with any essentials you need

Style: Transit Sling 250 AW Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My wife says I have too many camera bags, (actually only four, not including this), and my usual bag was becoming a problem to use, because of problems in my hip and back with arthritis. I also own a Lowepro AW 200 Slingback, but I only really use it if going on a longish trip where more than one camera & lenses are needed.
Where this bag scores, is it has the practicality of the AW 200, but in a more compact package. It hasn't the bulk or weight, and as it holds less, I am less likely to be tempted to stick extra bodies or bits and pieces in! It will still easily hold a DSLR & three lenses, and, if you need it, a smaller sized tablet. It is all easily accessible, and the interior is customizable with movable Velcro dividers. Build quality is high, being a Lowepro, and it is very comfortable to use. (It had its first outing the afternoon it arrived!)

What you really need to know, though, is my wifes' opinion. She says the grey colour goes nicely with my winter jacket...

I love this bag. I already own a Lowepro Classified 160 AW, an excellent bag for top loading but I wanted something that would carry all my gear and the Classified didn't quite do that.
The Lowepro Transit does the job. The compartments can be easily reconfigured and the bag holds all my gear with space for a tripod on the outside (3 lenses, Camera, flash gun, filters, media case and still some spare room. The bag doesn't feel bulky and is easy to get on and off. All the usual thoughtful Lowepro features and excellent detailing including full rain cover and thoughtful strapping arrangements to make carrying easy. With extra battery case on my Nikon D7000 I can't figure out getting the camera into an out of the side compartment arrangement for quick access but I don't regard that as a problem as the bag does all I ask of it.

I had so much doubt if i should buy Transit Sling 150 or not. Let me tell you i'd buy it again and again and again. Love this product. Already saved my kit from Fire and Water. It has marks of history but it is still on my back when going out.

Pros:
- Ease of use
- Enough space for all we need
- Nice amount of pockets
- Great quality product

Cons:
- Haven't found one jet

Spent ages sizing bags, reading reviews, searching for a bag for a canon 7d with a 400mm 5.6 attached. Not easy! I wanted a small bag to protect the gear in the car and on the bike while I'm out and about. Didn't bother trying to track one down as I know I can return Amazon stuff.
The bag is PERFECT for my needs. Fits the gear above with additional lens or two. (10-22mm and a 1.4 tele) or one larger lens laying upright. Has room to spare for blower brush spare battery/s memory cards. Wallet fits in outer pocket too.
Can be reconfigured so the side zip can be used and the bag can act as a working platform in front across chest. It'll carry a tri or monopod as well!

Great piece of kit and very portable, works perfect on bike slung on back or chest. Doesn't interfere with helmet like a rucksack can.
Decent colour and discreet, no be except a photo anorak will guess what you're carrying!!

By M. Hadfield TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 27 Dec. 2013
Style: Transit Sling 250 AW Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I think that Lowepro probably make the finest camera bags in the world. They have a huge range, innovative features, and cover everyone from the holiday snapper to the pro-photographer who has to carry a ton of gear around. I own several of their bags in various sizes and they are all in regular use.

I've never had one of their sling bags, though. A friend of mine owns two in different sizes and I often envy the ease with which his camera can be accessed in a hurry, yet carried safely protected in a lightweight bag. The idea of the sling bags is that when you want access to the camera, you slide the bag around from your back to your front, at which point the side-entry panel is facing upwards with your camera sitting comfortably inside with ready access available and no danger of the camera falling out.

So I was quite excited when the opportunity to test this newer model came along.

As usual with Lowepro bags there are pockets all over the place - so there's never a shortage of space to carry batteries and spare flash cards and the other odds and ends that end up in a camera bag. There's even a pocket for your tablet; fastenings to carry a tripod on one side of the bag; and Lowepro's usual built in rain cover.

The first thing that caught my attention on this bag was the unusual curved zip on the back of the bag that gives access to a shallow pocket. Unusually for Lowepro the curved zip seems only to be there to look attractive and add a feature to the otherwise featureless back of the bag while, at the same time, drawing the eye to their logo.

Anyway, I got my Canon 6D out and popped it into the side pocket.

Style: Transit Sling 250 AW Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Assuming you like sling-type bags (the jury is still out for me) this is about as good as it gets.
I have used LowePro products for over 25 years. In terms of the hierarchy of camera bags, they are about at the top of the tree, with Kata and ThinkTank just behind (but possibly better for rolling cases) and Billingham peerless if you want traditional design and craftsmanship.
The Transit 250AW is in the new LP line up. It has their usual high quality construction and attention to detail. This is large enough for a medium sized DSLR kit - a body and 2 or 3 lenses, flash, etc. The internal layout can be configured to hold a body with a 70-200 f2.8 big lens held vertically or for a smaller lens / body combination (say 24-105) to be used laterally for side access. There is room for extra kit and your own things and a slot at the back for a tablet (my iPad2 fits fine). There's a front access zipped pocket and mesh pockets (etc) for filters and the like. The bag can also take a tripod / monopod but perhaps more usefully, it has the tabs to hold the attachments for LowePro's accessory pouches (e.g. drinks bottle holder, extra storage). There is also a AW (all weather) cover but my health warning with all these types of bags is that they are fine for urban travel use / city break / 'dry' holiday but I wouldn't use them in wilderness areas or really challenging environments. The rain cover is not that heavy duty. But the cushioning is excellent and the bag strikes a good compromise between weight / bulk and protection.
I would whole-heartedly endorse this product - highly recommended and you can use with confidence.
