LowePro’s Take

Designed for the photojournalist. Adopted by the enthusiast. Improved for all! Introducing the next generation of SlingShot™ AW from Lowepro. Our newest, fast-access SlingShot AW series builds on the inventive design of the original and incorporates what many photographers are looking for: faster access, extra space for personal items, improved organization, and the ability to add a tripod. The SlingShot 302 AW offers more volume in the upper compartment for extra accessories or personal items. A Hideaway Tripod Mount™ system with foldout holder and quick-release buckle secures a compact tripod to the side. The same inventive design—letting you quickly rotate to the front to access—remains a tried-and-true feature of this customer favorite. Also includes: a patented All Weather AW Cover™; 3 SlipLock™ attachment loops; built-in microfiber cleaning cloth; dedicated memory card pockets; and easy-glide zippers; plus a fully padded main camera compartment with an updated divider system to accommodate the most popular DSLR models

  1. This is an excellent and accurate review.This bag is great! I chose the 200 AW because is was just a bit slimmer and forces me to pack light. The top compartment is suitable for my T2i & an 80mm lens, which leaves the rest of the bag for telephoto & other lenses, cleaners, filters, matte box, white balance cards, audio gear (I use it mostly for HD video), battery grip. The outer pouch on the pack is great for extra batteries while top outer zip pocket is perfect for memory cards.

    The strap webbing on the side is fine for a mono-pod or lighter HDSLR support (I use and recommend the Zacuto ) , but not for a long or heavy tripod. The built-in waterproof shell is perfect for an escape to a dry area, not for trudging around in driving rain all day long. I seal the bag in an old gore-tex anorak for if I’m going to be in the field all day long.
