    Both of those ftl

    I had a slingshot 200 and I outgrew it in about a year. Luckily my friend had the Expedition5 and not as much gear so she gave me hers and I gave her the Slingshot.

    It's better to have too much room and eventually fill it up than too little room and having to buy another one later anyway

    I have a slingshot 100aw that I'm thinking about selling. It does get uncomfortable when it's full.

    I love mine, but its so big. I wouldn't mind finding something a bit smaller to carry 1 body w/ the grip and maybe 2 lenses in. :dunno:

    Looks nice but it looks like it would be hard to get the camera out.

    Also looks like it does not come with the all weather stuff :(

    I was looking at the flipside 300. My Slingshot 200 AW doesn't have enough room for all my lenses and stuff now :(

    I can't have my camera with a lens attached fit in my bag if I'm carrying around the 80-200mm f/2.8 :(

    What can you currently carry in the 200?

    Yup...I was originally thinking of getting the Slingshot100 cause I never thought I'd fill up more than that.

    I guess when going with the Flipside/Slingshot series you just have to be more selective on which equipment you'll be bringing if you have a lot of gear.

    I bought the bag for an intended purpose and it does a GREAT job.

    I usually take camera + flash + 3 lenses (12-24mm/28-75mm/50mm) and then all the accessories/misc stuff i need throughout a night (cards,pens,cloths,memory,batteries,etc.)

    I've reconfigured it to take a 70-200mm + 12-24mm + 50mm / accessories but NO flash and it works great as well. I can leave the 70-200mm attached in this configuration.
