    I bought a black photo sport 200aw and it was absolutely vital for my travel from toronto to montreal to boston to cape cod.

    I am getting this girl I like into photography and there’s nothing better than getting her a colorful aw 100 that matches with mine!

    Now I can’t help but imagine walking along a foreign beach at sunset, hand in hand with my future girlfriend with our backpacks on…

  • Jay says:

    Well I own the fastpack 250 and It’s great! The photo sport sling 100 looks like a great bag for running, biking, and even skating around the city. From the looks of it’s design the photo sport sling 100 seems to have a great breathable back ( being that it has only one strap) which is something I need!

  • Erlend Lund says:

    I don’t really have a photo bag, I think this would be perfect for me,
    Liking the nature and stuff (really the only thing around)

  • Lee Paine says:

    The Photo Sport Sling 100 AW would be the perfect case for my various scouting adventures. As the Scoutmaster for my Boy Scout Troop, and the primary photographer, you’ll find me shooting the boys hiking trails, mountain biking, climbing and rappelling, skiing and snowboarding, and at our many community service projects where I need to go light and fast. The AW cover would be a real blessing as we do these rain or shine. I also know the Lowepro quality would hold up to all our activities as I own several Lowepro bags including my original Pro 35. Thanks for making these great products.

  • Mel L says:

    I have a few other Lowepro bags of various sizes for different activities. I absolutely love them! It would be a great bag to have for our hike and bike trails that we go to all around our city. It’s nice and light and has enough space to carry a few things for my kid. My Lowepro bags have always protected my gear from weather or the occasional drop. The 2 reasons I would love to have this are 1: I had it in my hands earlier this week and I’ve been kicking myself for not picking it up at the time. It was the right size for what my activities are right now. 2: We take a trip to Disney soon and that will be 6 days of hiking around the parks. Comfortable, light, protective, and the right amount of space for stuff. It would be the perfect bag for home and away.

    i can think of a 100+ sports for this bag but i only concentrate on cross country bikes, football and sailing events which take up my family weekends. My equipment would be a lot safer being thrown around between the sports a lot longer, I sure need one.

  • Christy Prosser says:

    The sport sling 100 appears to be the right size bag to add gear to and head out into the field when shooting photojournalism for mission teams. When you need to run to get out of the way, it would be ideal to have a bag that protects your gear, yet one that is not so bulky that the satchel gets in the way or hinders your movement through small spaces. Would be an ideal bag for those who like to travel light.

  • Cindy Maskell says:

    I recently bought a Lowepro bag, and absolutely love its roominess and design. Would love to have another, smaller Lowepro bag to carry my gear on local outings.

  • Martin Reid says:

    I have a Vertex 200 at the moment but as I’m planning on tackling my first Munro (Scottish mountain over 3000ft high) this would be the perfect bag to make sure I can take my camera gear but know if the weather turns bad its safe with the all weather cover, and with 283 Munros I can see this bag being with me on every one.

  • Bob Alvey says:

    my first bag wasnt a lowepro bag because I thought i could save money with a lesser brand but I learned the hard way that the other bags dont protect like lowepro. I have a lowepro bag now and would never own any other kind. Thanks lowepro!

  • Dean Wungard says:

    I have several Lowepro camera straps and several bags. Easy for me to organize camera equipment for Airshow, and air 2 air photo shoots. Would be killer to have a Photo Sport Sling 100 AW…

  • Jackie Chou says:

    My Lowepro bag is trusty, but the material on the strap keeps falling apart! I would love a new one!

  • Gathz says:

    I just recently get back to running after being required to rest due my recent minor operation procedure. I have already missed a lot of beautiful sunrise & sunset ever since because i cannot bring my camera with me using my classified 160 AW. I will finally be able to capture the moment if i will have this photo sport sling 100 AW since i can run and have my camera along with me. I would be able to do what i both love doing.

  • Amanda says:

    this would be a perfect bag for hiking up mountains and going down by the river with kids. It’s light enough that I could climb up trees with them. Plus AW is essential if caught in a monsoon storm or if the kids decide to attack me with water bottles. And with the ease of getting the camera from the sling I’ll be able to capture it all.

    would be a brilliant addition to my lowepro collection!
