      by fromPerfect for the active photographer This is bag has many uses. Personally I like taking my camera with me as much as possible and this makes it so easy. The camera is well protected and I have room to store a 13" laptop, drink bottle, professional camera, extra clothing as well as strapping other items to the bag.

      by fromGreat under normal conditions I took this bag with me to Shanghai and used it for day trips on foot. I had, at most, three lenses, camera, a few paper maps, light jacket, water, extra batteries, memory, and a snack. The pack is great when there is not too much in it. The compartments work perfectly and work reasonably well as compared to non-camera packs. I've used it several times for other hikes where I did not need to pack too much because of the proximity of base camp (or added in-case-ofs). The pack, when loaded and on a bicycle is not preferred. The shoulder straps became a flimsy "cut into your shoulders ordeal" and the molded back panel dug into my back while resting on my back. It became a very unpleasant bike ride. Your experience on the bike may be different if there was less in the pack (though it did great for the organizational aspect). Overall, I like the pack for the organizational capacities and good when you are close to your other camera supplies, but once it exceeds a certain weight, it becomes unpleasant. I do not know at what weight the pleasant to unpleasant occurs. It is not meant for heavy loads. Also, not recommended for bike rides because of the molded back section.

      by fromGreat Concept. Mediocre Execution I've have this bag for several months now. I am constantly searching for the perfect backpack, and for a while I thought I had found it in this Lowepro. The concept is excellent, however the way Lowepro actually put the bag together is a bit off. First and foremost, it is small. "It's a day pack, its okay to be small." I mean small as in it's a problem. The camera fits nicely in to its hole. But everything you put in to the main compartment will press down on the camera making it extremely difficult to remove when needed and even more difficult to put back once you're done. The shall of the bag has ZERO give in terms of stretch. The outside pouch is the same, it works great, so long as you have nothing in the main compartment. When you put something, anything in to the front pouch, you will lose a huge chunk of your main bag space. And again, it will press down on your camera making it difficult to access. The pack is more or less comfortable. However it will not tolerate overloading. I took it on a simple over night trip. I brought a tent, sleeping bag, a dinner and breakfast, and a tripod. I had sore shoulders and raw skin for a week after. DO NOT OVERNIGHT WITH THIS PACK. The straps are very flimsy. The backing is ridged. The waist belt pockets are small, with even smaller openings. With the back on and tight to your body, its difficult to get anything in or out of the waist pockets. The top pocket on the lid is also very small. The water bladder compartment is ill designed. I use this bag when I am out and about in the city. It is great for holding my camera, a book, an ultralight rain jacket. And that is about it. Why do I use it? Because frankly, it is the best camera bag on the market. Which is a little sad. But I simply do not understand why photographers need a bag that can carry 15 lenses, an entire computer set up, cables, blah blah blah. This bag will carry your camera, and your life (for a day). Which is really all you need.

      by fromLove this bag! I bought this from a local shop when they had it on sale in black. I was a little worried that it could only fit a 70oz bladder. I used it on day hikes for 3 weeks hiking in the mountains in Glacier and Canada. I fit a full 100oz Camelbak in the bladder pocket plus I could fit my T3i with a wide angle zoom on (17-40) and a 100-400mm telephoto zoom in the camera storage part. I also could fit my tripod on the side with the pocket and tighten it down enough so it didn't move at all while I was hiking. I also fit my rain jacket in the front quick access pocket with my first aid kit and some filters, lens wipes, a headlamp, and some granola bars or other snacks. A couple times I carried a water bottle in the side pocket with my camera, lenses, and jacket along with a freeze dried meal, an 8oz Jetboil gas canister, my Optimus cooking system ( my stove is similar in size to the one in that kit and fits in the cooking system. The built in rain cover is functional too. Used it a couple times and never had anything get wet. The only thing I wish it had was padding on the straps and waist belt though it was still pretty comfortable and I never really noticed the lack of padding other than a couple of longer hikes. When carrying a dslr this is a must have for me.

      by fromWorks well on a medium field load This is great for a focused load on 10-15 mile hikes or bike rides on trail to 30 miles. Will fit a body & a few lenses, but not any pro long lenses. I like it on my bike or on hikes to do macro work. It has a nice fit on your back for cross country mountain biking. It would be nice if it had a pouch for a smartphone/GPS on the shoulder straps. No thin vertical strap on the shoulder straps to mount an aftermarket pouch, just horizontal ones.

      by fromexactly what i needed This pack fits my needs for my 4-8 mile dayhikes in Fla. I have plenty of water with my 2l bladder (not included) in the hyd pocket. I carry a tripod on the bottom straps. In the top compartment I carry my first aid kit and personal effects that can include a light jacket rolled tightly. A small lunch and trailbars, A small emergency flashlight and fire starter plus maps and compass . Dont get me wrong you do have to plan smartly since you are giving up space for the camera equip in the bottom half. In the camera section i carry Nikon D5100 with 55-300 lens hood reversed 18-55 kit lense filters small cleaning kit blower extra battery and sd cards(no special holders for them) This is for the mountain biker or adventure sport person, and for me personally who likes to be out more than an hour or two and is into the 1/2-3/4 of a day trip and bring there camera along. hopefully this helps you out . See you on the trails

      by fromCamera Pack! Great pack! Similar to a previous review (I actually thought I was reading my thoughts) I also have a Lowepro Slingshot AW 100 and love it, but needed a pack with a water bladder for Mt. Biking, Hiking and Snowshoeing. I did a lot of research and actually ordered this bag from REI before they put it on the website. The weight distribution is fantastic with all my gear (Canon 60D, external flash, 18-200 mm & 50mm lenses and essential extra battery packs, lens pen, remote shutter and tripod (usually gorilla pod)). Having the water bladder compartment is awesome.. however I would recommend using a slim bladder. I started off with a camel bak 70oz. (older version) and it felt like it was going to burst so I bought an osprey bladder that is much thinner. Went mt. biking in NH and hit rain at the tail end... rain cover worked awesome. Overall I would highly recommend to any outdoor enthusiast/photographer.

      by fromTravel Pack I purchased this pack for hiking and traveling with my DSLR cameras. I used it for a week in New York and found it to be comfortable and easy to access. I was able to pack a DSLR camera with lens, second zoom lens, small tripod, memory cards, small laptop, batteries, snacks, water bottle, two light weight jackets (kids), and a Captain America shield (Strapped to the outside) with no problems. I use the water storage pocket, with no water, to store my iPad or small laptop. It has plenty of room for day trips on and off the trail.
