The Lowepro Passport sling is an attractive lightweight versatile bag for the DSLR user who wants an everyday bag that will also function as a camera bag.
The Passport Sling is a unisex bag that is very popular with the ladies. The bag is sort of banana shaped which makes for easy and comfortable carrying across the shoulder. The shoulder strap is fixed and adjustable and features a padded and removable shoulder pad.
Exterior pockets run around the outside of the bag with a total of 3 pockets, there are flat pockets on each side of the bag and at the front of the bag is a wider pocket where you can stuff a handy bottle of water. All these pockets are open with no way of closing, it would have been handy if the 2 flat pockets were zipped but unfortunately they’re not. However small items can be stuffed into these pockets quickly and easily.
The Passport Sling is opened via a zip that runs along the top of the bag inside you will find a padded flat open topped tablet pocket (for your tablet) a small mesh zipped accessory pocket (for small accessories) and the removable camera pouch that is also padded and contains an adjustable padded divider.
The camera pouch is secured with Velcro and just lifts out, great for those occasions when you don’t want to take your camera. The pouch will hold an entry level DSLR with kit lens, for example a Canon EOS 750D with an 18-135mm lens. You will also be able to fit another small lens (50mm 1.8) or flash in the pouch as well.
You could squeeze a larger DSLR and Lens in there such as a Canon 7D and 17-55mm 2.8 IS USM but there will be no room for anything else. The end of the pouch features a small memory card pocket that is sealed with a small Velcro flap.
A main feature of The Passport Sling is that the capacity can be expanded by 30% simply unzip the zip that runs vertical on the back of the bag and pull more bag space out. With the extra space you will be able to fit a lightweight jacket or more gear and accessories (although extra gear won’t be well protected) in this extra space.
The Passport Sling is a very good choice for the traveller and holiday maker as the bag and pouch can be folded flat and takes up hardly any room in a suitcase. The bag is very light and weighs only 500grams.
