I should say, the key to being successful with a sling back is wearing it properly. I took me a while to get it adjusted right.

The way I wear it is on my right side just above my hip... with the strap going over my right shoulder.

It doesnt come off easily because of being over my neck, but I can rotate it around to the front and open it to get things out. Since I wear it so low on my back... there is plenty of strap to set it down on a table when it is in front of me to open it and get inside... without ever taking it off my body.

I have a friend that has a Canon Rebel XT that just got this backpack and is very happy.


It has the inner zip top to protect your gear and removable velcro dividers for your compartments which gives you some choices as you expand your gear. It seems to bea great bargain for the price.

I looked at that one also Trique Daddi, and it seemed like a great bag/backpack for the price! I just kinda talked myself out of a backpack. My first bag was a Lowepro, but I got one that I outgrew as soon as I got it home. So I decided on the following Canon bag:


I really wanted a backpack (like the first link), but decided for me the Canon was a better option at this time.

I have the camera body, two lenses, two filters, memory cards, card reader, cleaning supplies, hamburgers, battery charger, and more inside, and I can still get two or three more lenses (depending on their size).
