    The perfect city bag. Compact and sleek- it provides easy access to your camera whilst jostling with the bustle of city life.

  • Greg says:

    Slingshots are great bags for quick easy access to your gear; when you’re just walking around in the city.

  • Rebeka D says:

    I see tons of applications and uses of this bag. It’s one of the most comfortable designs out there but, as far as I can tell, this specific bag stands out with its exceptional build quality and plenty of room for extras. Winning this bag would be tremendous support. I would use it on one-day trips when I have to carry a minimal amount of “personal stuff” and when comfort is of special importance!

  • Daniel J. says:

    This type of bag is great for situations when you have to constantly change lenses and various equipment. I would use this in concerts and weddings primarily! 🙂

  • Luc Savoie says:

    I would use a sling in Singapore (while having a Singapore Sling), or if I broke my arm and it was in a sling, or if I needed to quickly grab my camera to take a photo of my neices baby in a sling.

    So many times where a Lowepro sling would be so useful!

  • David Perez says:

    One day my Flipside 200 and another day SlingShot 202 AW my new.

  • Colin Livingstone says:

    The ideal bag for days out with the kids not to much gear to put them off “the pose”.

  • Eduardo says:

    Oh well I would use it everyday, looks very comfortable and practical for long walks. The easy access is a great feature!

  • Amanda says:

    When do I not? When I’m out for a quick hike. When I’m coaching/photographing my kids soccer games. When I have a minute to just get out and do some street photography. I use it everywhere all the time.

  • Tom says:

    Sling packs are perfect for run and gun stuff. Anytime you need to get to your stuff quick it’s just a slide to the front and zip.

  • Samson Kwok says:

    When I’m out with friends. Short and easy. Just like my comment.

  • Terry Gardner says:

    I use a sling bag when hiking or walking to a location out in nature. Much more balanced than a shoulder bag.

  • Alfonso Torres says:

    I would use this bag everyday!!!

  • Royce Bardin says:

    I would use this bag for everything. A brilliant design.

  • Maya McMahon says:

    I would use a sling type bag to shoot events like Civil War Reenactments and parades. Its very easy to just sling over the shoulder and go.
