shoulder bag required

Unread postby Sploosher » Sun Jan 09, 2011 6:18 pm

I am on the lookout for a shoulder bag (for around 50 GBP )to keep a kit in that I am putting together for my wife, and I would like your thoughts

I would like one to hold the following.
Dynax7d with battery grip
Sigma 28-300 DG zoom
Sigma 18-50 DC zoom
Possibly a macro lens in the 90-100mm range, and space in future for a Sigma 400, (if I can get the 70-400G)

This way I can lighten the load in my bag.

Hi Sploosher,

If you are looking for a shoulder/backpack, I have good experience with the Lowepro Slingshot bags.

They are sturdy, have lots of space and can be accessed quickly because of the way the shoulderstrap is made.

I can't offer you experiences on the traditional shouldersbags, because I never owned or used one.

Shirley uses Kipling shoulder bags, which include several made for cameras/laptops etc. Since they just look like regular Kipling bags but bigger and the right shape, they are multifunctional. They are by far the most rugged bags we have had (and we have a dozen or so of these including a rolling suitcase style camera case I found at Focus one year at 30% of retail price).
