Comments about Lowepro Lowepro SlingShot 300 AW All-Weather Backpack (Black):

I used the product on a recent trip to Hawaii. The only problem I had was removing the monopod to get to the camera-- EVERY time, until I just carried the monopod in my hand or left it behind. The straps for the monopod should be moved to the side of the bag, then, when you swing the bag around to get to the camera, the monopod is out front and away from the camera compartment.

I had no proper carrying case for my camera and its many components...this fit the bill. I am large and the waist belt does not fit me, so I simply carry the case. Great for all my lenses. Too many zippers, etc.

I wasn't sure about the one strap, but it makes it easy to swing the bag around to the front to get the camera out. I love I can take more then one lens with me. Oh, and the rain cover is going to come in handy since where I live, it rains like crazy.
