        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!!!
