    I would use a sling bag to shoot while on the go and needed to change lenses frequently.

  • It would very easy for me to shoot street people here in manila with this sling bag. I just like shooting portraits/faces of people without noticing me and again with this bag I could easily get my gears in and out of the shell.

  • Nev Swann says:

    I dont own one yet but from what I’ve seen it would replace my other two Lowpro bags which are now too cumbersome to tote around with my gear. A sling is next on my list when I get back to work after chemo.

  • May says:

    I have been using my Sling Shot 100 AW for over 5 years and I love it but I’m ready for the 202 AW. I love the sling for walking, hiking, travel and everyday shooting. One of Lowepro’s best camera bag ever!

  • Robert Hanson says:

    I currently use my Sling Shot 102 AW when ever I have my camera equipment with me. Hiking in Glacier National Park, Snow Shoeing, Boarding and mostly when ever I want access to my camera quickly. Now that I have added additional equipment to my repertoire I have outgrown and need to upgrade to the Sling Shot 202.

  • Greg Langlois says:

    I would use a sling bag,as I don’t have one yet, while trekking in the city and sightseeing. A great light bag to carry my equipment and gives quick and easy access to the camera gear.

  • Chris Snyder says:

    I use the Sling bag when I go to all my old time tractor shows. It’s easy to carry my gear, water, snacks, & small things may buy there. Bag gives great protection from the sun and dirt. I am out in the fields watching equipment demos and protecting my gear from dust, plus being able to access gear quickly is a must. Great bags.

  • Mike Miroiu says:

    I like using a slingbag pretty much anywhere I go. It’s my go to bag – carries the right gear all the time.

  • Noah says:

    With a back so bad I had to get a shot and 3 different
    meds yesterday at doctor’s appt, my lovely
    Stealth backpack will soon have to go
    on one of those trolley carts with wheels.
    So a not-so-heavy bag for just the
    essentials would be a very nice addition
    for days when the cane I am temporarily
    using wont allow me to
    pull the trolley once purchased.

  • Atta ul Hameed says:

    I would love to use this great neccessity while shooting weddongs and outdoors events.
    Fingers crossed.:-)

  • I use a sling bag for skiing. I’m a mid-level skier, not good enough to ski with a full pack and be comfortable. The sling bag is perfect–I can swing it in front when I get on the lift, swing it in back at the top of the run. It’s easy to access on the slopes without having to put anything down in the snow and easy to ski with as well!

    When I win one from lowepro 🙂

    When I win one from lowering 🙂

  • tamzyn says:

    I will be honest, I dont have one as yet but when I do I will use everytime I take my camera as its got easy/quick access to you camera without fumbling about with your standard bulky camera bag, it’s comfotable to wear as I have tried one out. also it holds other bits and bobs great for us girlies as I wouldnt have to take my handbag too, all in a very well designed camera backpack 🙂

  • I like to use a sling bag when I am on the go on and around the city or suburbs. It makes getting to my gear easy, while yet affording me the chance to have the gear i need to meet the needs at the moment. It is a great street bag to have and I hope to win this one 😉 /
