New Lowepro Slingshot

I just ordered a Fastpack 350 but noticed that there is now a Slingshot 350. This is slightly bigger than the 300 with a laptop sleeve. I think it could be a bit heavy as the 300 is on my limit for one strap which is why I went for the Fastpack (Plus I like the idea the fastpack comes in other colours) but your needs may vary. I still like the slingshot design and unlike the fastpack it has an AW cover which might have been nice since I'm using it for Sierra Leone in the rainy season.

Re: New Lowepro Slingshot

I ordered the Slingshot 300 AW (think it's what Postman Pat tried to deliver on Sat. but I was away!) which I'm looking forward to getting Had a quick look on the Lowepro website for the Slingshot 350 - looks good, but the 300 AW should do me nicely

Re: New Lowepro Slingshot

The 300 is a great bag; far better for a multi-body user than the 200 is.

The 350 looks to be a good alternative to the CompuTrekker series - a little less room inside but more comfortable overall.

That said, with the amount of air travel I'm doing these days I'm moving away from soft bags and am set to get a Pelican 1510 case in the next week or so. Expect a review once I'm back from Atlanta
