Handling & Performance
The Lowepro Transit Sling 250 AW is a versatile bag designed for the urban photographer. It's discreet and has a fast action side opening to allow quick access to your photography gear. The bag is designed for both mirrorless camera and DSLR users. It is available in slate grey for £82.00.
- Fits a DSLR with attached lens (up to 24-70mm for side access, or 70-200mm when stored vertically) and 1 to 2 extra lenses, or
- Fits Mirrorless / CSC kit with 2-3 additional lenses
- Room for flash and accessories
- Holds a compact tripod using the Hideaway Tripod Mount
- Pocket for a 10 inch tablet
- Available in slate grey
- Ergonomic sling strap
- Mesh-covered on back
- Front pocket

Inside the bag is configurable to your set of photographic gear, there are a total of 5 pieces which can be totally removed from the bag. There is a separator so you can store you camera in the bottom and other items on top or you can tuck this separator away and have the whole bag open.
In the top half of the bag is a wide mesh pocket, ideal for batteries, memory cards and other accessories. On the inside of the front flap is another zipped pocket which also has a clip, you could attach your keys to this for safe keeping.
As you can see from the pictures above the bag can be arranged in many ways. We've been able to comfortably fit a Nikon D3000 with a Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, with an extra lens and battery charger stored in the lower part as well. With a smaller lens attached, such as the standard 18-55mm, you can fit it all in the lower part and use the side fast access opening. Depending on which lenses you own, you'll find room for one or two extra lenses in there as well. With this arrangement, the top section can be used to carry your lunch and a drink.
