Even though I’m not on photo assignment for this trip, I’m still a photographer and want to have a good kit with me. One of my favorite bags for these situations is the Lowepro Classified Sling 180 AW. I like that it holds my DSLR (Canon 60D on this trip) with 70-200 f/4, 16-35 f/2.8, 50 f/1.8, and 18-55 kit zoom. Plus I have flash, filters, and all of the accessories. The front pocket holds an iPad, netbook, or 13″ MacBook Air. Yet the entire package is very compact. (You can see a short video about how a MacBook Air 13″ fits in the Classified).
The other thing that I really like about this bag, is that it’s made of premium components. The fabric, zippers, strap, and compartments are all top notch. When I walk into a meeting with the Classified, I feel like a professional.
