If you're going to be lugging your gear for longer periods of time then look at some of Lowepro's other alternatives.
This does not come with the rain/dust protection cover but you can purchase a generic one and leave it on.
Overall, the product offers good protection and padding.
I find it a little uncomfortable to carry on my shoulder for longer periods of time, especially with all my gear in.
I was looking for a safe and good looking bag for my D5100 + some accessories. This is my first DSLR so I didn't have any prior experience of what to look for and various types of bags that are available in the market. I only knew that I didn't want to use any bag like the one I got with the camera which I later came to know was called messenger bag.
I took to the web for choosing the perfect one. I browsed through a variety of bags and decided on the features that I required - a bag with nice padding that can be carried anywhere, with customizable compartments with velcro for upto three lenses + one camera, with separate pockets for batteries, chargers, cards, filters, mini tripod, etc. Most of the bags that I came across on the web were really nice but had one or the other shortcomings.
MESSENGER BAGS- These are nice and have probably the largest range available but I personally don't like them. You have to hang them on one of your shoulders all the time while they keep swinging continuously to annoy you. Most of the time you have to hold them to keep them still while walking. I consider SHOULDER BAGS and HOLSTERS also in this category with same disadvantages.
BACKPACKS- The biggest advantage with backpacks is that you can accommodate almost all of your gear with space left for other knick-knacks. This sounds great and perfect but backpacks also have the biggest drawback i.e., you have to take them off for pulling out your gear. If you suddenly come across something you want to shoot and you have your camera in the bag, the chances are you'll miss the shot while you take out the camera. Some backpacks have features that enable you to take your camera out without taking the bag off but these are a bit costly. Backpacks are also large in size so you can't take them everywhere. You have to keep a separate smaller bag for such instances.
SLING BAGS- I found these bags perfect. You have the option to use them as shoulder bags or slings. You can take your gear out without taking them off. They have generous capacity and proper size that is neither too small nor too big. I finally decided that I wanted a sling bag - half the battle was won.
After reading a huge number of reviews and feedbacks online, i shortlisted two brillant brands - Lowepro and Caselogic. Both have excellent quality and protection capabilities. I selected three bags -
1. Caselogic SLRC 205- Brilliant bag, great looks, doesn't look like a camera bag at all, excellent built quality, cost is a bit on the higher side and cannot hold more than two lenses.
2. Lowepro Passport Sling- It's a Lowepro, so built quality is the best, nice looks, doesn't look like a camera bag, but I personally doubt its protection capabilities and to me, it looks like a bag for women.
3. Lowepro Urban Photo 250 - This is the one I selected based on the following features:
- It's a Lowepro. It is the brand you can trust blindly.
- The built quality of a camera bag can't be better.
- Looks are great. Looks smart when you put it on.
- Easliy handled, can be swirled smoothly around to bring at the front to take out the camera.
- Generous internal space
- Waterproof fabric
- Great quality velcro and zippers
- Adjustable compartments
- Good padding all around the bag and for shoulder
Believe me, after searching for the perfect bag for almost a month, I thought I could never find the one. But now, I am more than happy and extremely satisfied that I made a good decision to buy this one. My personal favorite was the Caselogic SLRC 205 but it has less capacity and is costlier than Lowepro Urban.
You can't go wrong with it.
I keep these in the bag -
1 Nikon D5100
1 18-55mm AF kit zoom lens
1 55-200mm AF telephoto lens
1 35mm f/1.8 prime lens
1 battery charger
1 extra battery
1 Nikon ML-L3 remote
1 extra memory card
4 52mm filters
1 data cable
Manuals and guides in the tablet compartment
1 mini tripod in the side pocket
(I put the camera body with any of the three lenses mounted)
After putting everything in, the bag looks like in the photo - puffy and healthy.....
Amazon's delivery was best as always. I ordered the bag on Saturday, delivered on Tuesday. Safely packed.
Nikon D7000 camera, attached with Tamron 70-300 VC,
Nikon 18-105mm VR,
Nikon 35mm f/1.8 and
nikon SB400 flash.
The bag can accommodate even a bigger camera attached with a lens which is slightly bigger than the Tamron 70-300 VC.
The front pouch does have enough space to carry lens back caps, couple of filters, AA batteries for my flash, space for additional memory cards. There is also an internal compartment to keep a 7-10" tab inside.
