    Comments about Informant Camera Sling:

    I have been looking for a camera bag that did not screen camera bag, particularly for international travel. This definitely fits the bill. I have only used it locally so far and love how lightweight it feels. In the bags I have used before for my DSLR, I sometimes end up with shoulder or back discomfort from the weight. Not with this bag. It sits nicely across the body. I got the small and find it very comfortable (I am a 5'5", ~135 lb female). I normally only carry my camera and at most two lenses, a small tripod, and a remote, and this is great.

      Comments about Informant Camera Sling:

      I actually bought this camera case to use as a carrier for my potable music system. It works great! I was able to make space or find pockets for everything that I needed, including my full-size headphones, an iPod, and a portable amplifier (among other things). I'm sure it works great for carrying a DSLR and a couple of lenses, but I had a special purpose in mind and this hit my needs spot on.

      Great for Point & Shoot Cams- not DSLRs

      By marlat1112

      From San Antonio, TX

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • High Quality

      Cons

      • Not Enough Pockets
      • Side Not Wide Enough
      • Strap Connections Too Low

      Best Uses

      • Short Photo Shoots

      Comments about Informant Camera Sling:

      So glad I purchased this on sale. The length of the bag is a bit cumbersome (I think for a female), and yet if you had added 1/2 inch to the width it would have helped. My DSLR and an extra lens were too big for this bag, so I will be using it for my Point & Shoot cameras. The strap connection position on the bag is in a weird place (in the middle of the bag), so when I go to pick up my bag it spins around to upside down. Also if the strap would have had a clip to remove so I can attach it to other bags or packs. The pockets should have gussets as my cords were too bulky for them and I had to use space in the bag just for the cords.and extra battery.
      The sale color was OK, not my fav combination.
      I have over 40 Timbuk2 products and I don't think this is your best work. 1st disapointment on your products. Maybe ask some real photographers how they would design a midsize photo bag.

      Comments about Informant Camera Sling:

      This is a perfect sized bag for someone who doesn't need to carry around a gauntlet of ridiculous camera gear; it's humble.
      In my bag I carry a Canon Rebel t3i with an 18-50mm lens attached. And either two other lenses at a time, or one other lens and a speed light. I got a notebook, an iPad Mini, various cords, batteries and cards in there too, and it's all a snug fit. I like being able to swing the bag around and access my camera at a moment's notice, and people tend to think I'm a professional (I was once, but now just more of a hobbyist). Overall a good bag, and I would recommend it to friends.

        This bag is a great size for traveling. I bought the small size , Nikon camera fits great and room for extra lens . I like that the compartments can be changed. My air iPad also fits. Definitely, recommend... Doesn't look like a boxy camera case.

              Finally a camera bag that does not scream camera bag! It is a really well designed bag with tons of practical bells and whistles - my fave, the zipper open towards you so you can easily grab your gear or switch it out seamlessly. This is the 5th Timbuk2 bag I have purchased without regret. Once again, you nailed it!!!

                I received this camera bag and loved the color instantly. I did feel the strap was not quite a comfortable as others I've tried and when I would attempt to open the bag to access my camera I kept grabbing the wrong side. Probably just me, but overall nice bag.

                I finally found the perfect bag for traveling light on a day trip or just walking around. It fits 1 camera with lens attached, 2 more lenses and many memory cards and a small flash and there is no wasted space, there is no extra space inside the bag so things can move around. It opens against your body even though it looks like the outer flap opens it. I was reluctant to buy this bag because it looked like I'd be carrying a sausage, but this bag is great.
