_
"Pros:Well thought out design with pockets in just the right spotsSolid construction and build (reminds me of a small timbuk2 bag)Comfortable to wear around but quick to get at your gear if you want itEasy to make secure with a simple cable luggage lockBig enough to hold a dslr with battery grip easily with 2 additional lenses or a lens and flashCons:Tripod fold out flap could be a bit bigger"

Body

Body:
"Unable to place 2 camera bodies with separate lens in the bag."
_
"We are big fans of this bag, BUT with the caveat that only my husband can carry this bag as the cross body strap is not functional or comfortable for a woman's chest."
_
"It is a MAJOR problem, since I tend to actually keep the bag ON my body, and not just look at it being pretty."
_
"To me, the added problem is the fact that with all this wasted space under and over the body, my camera basically ends up hanging in the bag by the lens."
_
"CON: This does not wear well with seven lenses, body etc etc !"
_
"It was comfortable on my shoulder and didn't slip (so it didn't unwantedly adjust my shirt).I went on vacation and used it on the plane as carry-on (fits well) where I carried 2 battery chargers, 2 CF cards, 430 EX II flash, 50mm (on camera), 85mm, 28-90mm, radio triggers, flash cord, 4 filters, Canon 40D body, lens pen... (I am sure I am missing something)... and this was all without using any of the large top section (I ended up using it for other travel items like my wallet and a snack).Overall I've been disappointed with bags in the past, either due to comfort level of not fitting what it said it could but this bag really delivered!"
_
"Fits on your body very nicely, even for a very large guy like myself!"
_
"The bag slides around your body on the well padded shoulder strap to allow some limited access to the pockets."
_
"For those long trips, I use a Vertex 300AW backpack which hold a ton of gear, bodies and lense as well as a laptop or I-Pad."
_
"The bag itself is a good size, easy to flip around on the body, and padded enough that it's not killing your shoulder to carry it for long periods of time."
_
"It fits a lot of equipment, and the cross body strap is what allows everything to be easily accessible, since you can just swing the bag forward and grab your camera."

_
"I was worried it would be too small and not hold my camera."
_
"Unable to place 2 camera bodies with separate lens in the bag."
_
"My husband and I are just getting into d-SLR photography, but there have been times in the past where we would opt *not* to bring our camera to an event due to the hassle of lugging it around."
_
"in the summer and I dislike the camera bouncing around, unprotected, in my backpack; or swinging aroundon a strap."
_
"Design wise - lots of spaces and useful pockets, holds lens tighter but beware of the camera size - you need to keep it fixed with super zoom lenses to ensure stability."
_

_
"When you want to use it, simply unclick it and you are free to spin the case where you can nicely grab your camera or an extra memory card."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"Though some people seem to find it uncomfortable for some reason, for me it seems comfortable enough and makes pulling out the camera rather convenient."
_
"But the 302 does not work well that way, and the 302 does not have a comfortable carry handle."
_
"It was comfortable on my shoulder and didn't slip (so it didn't unwantedly adjust my shirt).I went on vacation and used it on the plane as carry-on (fits well) where I carried 2 battery chargers, 2 CF cards, 430 EX II flash, 50mm (on camera), 85mm, 28-90mm, radio triggers, flash cord, 4 filters, Canon 40D body, lens pen...

Cover

Cover:
"Take advantage of the rain cover and hidden tripod holster."
_
"It has a rain protection cover hidden at the bottom as well."
_
"The hidden rain cover came in very handy, as it always rains off and on in Florida."
_
"Thoughts like the microfiber cloth sewn into a small mesh pocket that slides over the back of the camera- The weatherproof cover that tucks into a velcro closed hidden space on the bottom of the pack, the tripod pouch that is also stashed away, the small clips that block the main compartment from accidentally zipping open when in the sling position and dumping your gear on the ground."
_
"The weather-proof cover is hidden within one of those Velcro cubbyhole and is attached to the bag so you won't misplace it."
_
"The hidden all-weather cover has not been used, however, it's nice to know I have it."
_
"I love that it had a built in rain cover."
_
"Rain cover is great."
_
"I have even had the chance to use the rain cover, and it worked great!"
_
"PROS- Sling bag - unlike a backpack, you can access your camera while keeping the bag on your shoulder- With the additional strap, it is securely attached to your back and does not move when walking or cycling- Very comfortable- Light- Weather proof with the cover- Extra space at the top for glasses and or a very small bottle of water- Ability to carry a monopod tripod- Lots of pockets to hold a cleaning kit, extra battery, etc...CONS- The bag is not held straight on your back (at least for me - because of the sling, the bag is tilting sideway)."
_
"It offered plenty of space, the weather cover was a great addition, and had it not been for the design flaws mentioned, it would have been perfect."

DSLR

DSLR:
"First one was couple of years ago and failed( main reason - I needed to carry DSLR and camcorder sometimes,and slingshot does not really fit for that).This time, my old Canon 200DG bag deserved to retire, and camcorder is not an issue anymore,so I decided to give second chance to Lowepro."
_
"I photograph emergency incidents and needed a new bag that would be able to hold my DSLR, Video Unit and Lenses."
_
"Lowepro Slingshot 102 DSLR Camera Bag is excellent."

Design

Design:
"I know that the designers claim they are working with photographers in order to improve design but they are still missing important points of usability."
_
"Great size, very comfortable on medium journeys, tons of different places to put things, awesome design, tons of hidden features."
_
"- The Velcro dividers are illogically designed and not easily adjustable."
_
"However, a bag THIS large does not lend itself well to the slingshot design concept."
_
"The slingshot design is excellent in that it does not cause back problems which I encountered with my previous one strap camera bag."
_
"I have hiked for a couple hours with this bag, and while it's not quite as comfortable as a backpack, it is well designed for carrying."
_
"By design, the part of the bag which rests on your back is well padded but the padding on the outer shell is minimal meaning that you have to take extra care when handling the bag packed with expensive equipment."
_
"Its comfortable to wear, and the slingshot design makes accessing the camera much easier while on the go."
_
"The sling bad design is a wonderful idea."
_
"Great industrial design."
_
"The many different compartments make it efficient and the sling bag design is easy to keep things hands free until needed."

_
"It isn't too heavy and the all weather shroud can easily be deployed for wet weather."
_
"With all this gear in the bag it is pretty heavy , but if you put it on and simply snug up the waist strap it takes all the weight off of your shoulder."
_
"It is large and easy to put a lot of stuff in it, which makes it heavy, but that is why ai ordered the large one."
_
"Of course the back the size isn't that heavy but sometimes my shoulder can get irritated if it carries something all day even if not terribly heavy."

_
"Lowepro SlingShot 302 AW perfect BUT if you notice in their product pics they don't have lens hoods on...that's because the lenses won't fit otherwise...small primes are fine but wide lenses like 17 to 40 with hood won't fit...with that being said still a great bag...I out the lens hoods in the top pouch our turn then upside down...BUT only if you don't have other lenses beside it...strap it's nice, feels really secure...great BUT not perfect.."

Strap

Strap:
"It hits in the wrong area no matter how I adjust the strap."
_
"So while the strap is my complaint, it is the essential function of the bag so I can't justify knocking it down a star, but women should be aware."
_
"We are big fans of this bag, BUT with the caveat that only my husband can carry this bag as the cross body strap is not functional or comfortable for a woman's chest."
_
"First, the strap is not as padded comfortable as is advertised and it cut into my shoulder."
_
"I fit my pouch for my BOSE earbuds, a pouch for my Ravpower mobile NAS, my small handheld camera & its charger, a lens hood, filter pouch, Pelican SD card case, my DLSR charger and a spare battery, a Garmin GPS, my wallet, some keys, all the cables for charging the various devices including my phone, AND still had space for a hat, a water bottle and my inhalers.3) The sling appears like it would be a very flimsy way to keep the backpack on you, but the extra strap with the quick release really adds some support there and keeps the pack firmly on your back.4) I love the way how I can quick release the strap, throw the backpack sideways, and in no time at all switch out lenses on my camera, and put it back on."
_
"Until the shoulder strap breaks in it is a little stiff and uncomfortable."
_
"It adjusts well so you can get it snug on you how you want and there is third strap that secures it with a click connect to keep it put."
_
"The bag slides around your body on the well padded shoulder strap to allow some limited access to the pockets."
_
"As a busty woman, I feel that the second strap is adequate in keeping the pack secure on my back."
_
"It has plenty of room and the sling strap holds everything to your back comfortably."
_
"Bought this for my husband's new nikon cameraIt's perfect and holds a ton of lenses filters etc and the best thing is for traveling it isn't inherently obvious that its a camera bagI wore this a few times as well and it was nice to have lots of abilities to adjust the straps and make it comfortable for me, esp the waist strap helps distribute the weightThe one shoulder function is nice so you can just swing your bag around and grab items as needed so it helps when taking shots on the goHighly recommend!

Tripod

Tripod:
"Take advantage of the rain cover and hidden tripod holster."
_
"in addition, I wouldn't even recommend carrying a tripod because the weight offset will kill your neck shoulder."
_
"The hidden tripod feature isn't all that but for the monopod it works fine."
_
"I also have a complaint about the tripod carrying pouch that folds out."
_
"Thoughts like the microfiber cloth sewn into a small mesh pocket that slides over the back of the camera- The weatherproof cover that tucks into a velcro closed hidden space on the bottom of the pack, the tripod pouch that is also stashed away, the small clips that block the main compartment from accidentally zipping open when in the sling position and dumping your gear on the ground."

"Divider versatility is low, not many ways to customize the bagToo shallow for the 70-300 f 4.5 to fit vertically, eats up more space than necessaryWeird strap adjustment locationMy tripod does not fit well enough to carry around in the tripod holder"

Weight

Weight:
"The problem comes with all that weight over one shoulder."
_
"in addition, I wouldn't even recommend carrying a tripod because the weight offset will kill your neck shoulder."
_
"Previously I had the over the shoulder camera bag and what a pain with constantly putting it down to get what I want out and the weight of all my camera gear on one shoulder was annoying."
_
"My tripod (Manfrotto 055xPROB with a 322RC2 head) does not fit well enough in the holder to use it that way but I imagine that the added weight from the pod would put it over the edge into the uncomfortable range even if the bag was only lightly loaded."
_
"lightweight, plenty of compartments, easy to get into quickly and easy to access the pockets, one shoulder sling style"
_
"Lightweight and practical with excellent areas for everything."
_
"I carry a Mefoto travel tripod which fits quite well in the tripod holder and does not shift the weight ratio."
_
"The bag itself is very light in weight but VERY, VERY durable."
_
"While the bag is nicely designed, well-made, and light weight, it somehow manages to be both too big and too small for my needs... the inside compartment is pretty much swallowed up by the camera with the 24-70 mounted on it, with not quite enough room to stash the 70-200 without fear that it will fall out when I unzip the main compartment."

"Extended zoom lenses over 300mm might be a challenge to fit in the case though on the camera."
_
"Since buying this bag I've came across other reviewers with this same problem with various longer zooms."
_
"(My typical day kit includes a Nikon D7000, and two lenses - I choose from a selection of wide angles, primes and a super zoom - the zoom gives me the most problems fitting)."
_
"You won't be able to put any large zooms or telephoto lenses in this one, so make sure you do your homework here."
_
"Well made but a tight fit for a camera with a zoom lens attached"
_
"The bottom compartment can be rearranged with the Velcro pads to fit my camera as well as the zoom lens."
_
"Fits our full frame DSLR and a Zoom Lens attached as well as room for the charger and a 50mm lens and more."
_
"I needed a bag that would fit my Canon 7d and a zoom lens - this works perfectly."
_
"Also the D700 with the 85 mm micro lens fits perfectly with room to spare for the zoom lens I will buy once I recover (financially) from buying the D7000 and the 85mm micro lens :).Also, I have a question for Lowepro 202 enthusiasts."
