Lowepro Slingshot 200AW

I'd just like to take the time to recommend this wonderful bit of kit, being the Lowepro Slingshot 200AW.

It's not only an awesome bag which just oozes quality, but the material is fantastic and along with the easy access (but secure) main compartment, the hidden stability strap and the hidden all weather cover it also is very much tardis like in it's ability to store my camera kit.

To get an idea of the amount of kit i could fit in it i decided to clear it out and catalogue everything i fit into it, which is -

Canon 20D with neck strap
Sandisk Ultra II 2GD CF cards (x4)
Canon 50mm f1.8
Canon 38-76mm f4-f5.6
Canon 18-55mm F3.5-f5.6
Tamron 55-200mm f4-f5.6
Lensbaby Original
Jessops 300D Flash
Sigma EF-500 ST DG Flash
Miranda 450 CD Flash
Mirando 700 CD Flash
Card and Velcro snoots and gobo's (x5)
Flash Gels (x5)
Lens Filters in circular boxes (x4)
lensbaby Aperture rings and Removal tool
Ebay Flash trigger
Ebay flash receiver (x2)
Spare Camera Battery
4 pack rechargable AA's (x2)
Selection of flash trigger cables
Sekonic Flash Metre
Lens Hoods x3
Rocket Blower
Blower Brush
Microfibre Cloth
Silica Gel sachets
Business Card holder and cards
Spare Tripod screw

When out on shoots i also carry -

Asus Eee 701 netbook (with win XP) in protective neoprene case
Card Reader
Mobile Broadband Dongle

so if anyone is looking for a recommendation for this bag, i can categorically say it's worth it's £60 price tag
