2011 Design360: Lowepro Passport Sling camera bag, Singapore

14 August 2011 Sunday

The Lowepro Passport Sling camera bag has  been designed straight up as a camera travel bag with the ability for it to be collapsed to be stored inside a travel backpack and weighing at a mere 500 grams.

It is shaped like a kidney water bottle.

I bought it at TK Foto Technic, Funan DigitaLife Mall, priced at S$55 here in Singapore.

The protection of the DSLR comes in the form of a fully padded camera box which is also removable.

]1[ Front  view, slash pockets on both sides of the Lowepro Passport Sling.

The slash pockets are not velcroed or zippered up.

]2[ Top view of the zipper compartment.

]3[ Detachable and movable shoulder pad.

]4[ Expansion compartment zippered up.

]5[ Expansion compartment unzipped, giving approximately 30% more space.

]6[ Water bottle back pocket.

I find that the water bottle pocket is too shallow for a bottle and I am afraid of it falling off.

]7[ Two inner pocket compartments for handphone/ cellphone or other small items.

 ]8[ Passport Sling camera bag fully loaded.

Loaded with a Nikon D90 attached lens  is a 28-300mm, SB900 with flash diffuser, Nalgene 1 litre waterbottle with Humangear capcap and a light Goretex rain jacket.

The left pocket is slightly larger than the right pocket.
