Digitalcamerareview reviews the Lowepro Classified Sling 180 AW and writes;
“Overall, while the idea of a combination camera and notebook bag might not be anything new, the Classified Sling 180 AW is easily one of the best combo laptop/camera bags I’ve ever used. It’s comfortable, it’s easy to get to your gear quickly, it stores tons of gear, and it has a simple-yet-classy design. In short, it works well in the field or the office.”

Lowepro Classified Sling 180 AW User Reviews

Camera bag that doesn’t shout to be one
“I have some very bulky camera equipment (D3s, 14-24mm, 24-70mm and a large speedlite!), and this compact sling bag manages to swallow everything, albeit tightly. I also love the fact that this bag is so action-ready, meaning I don’t have to remove it from my back in order to get to my camera… The strap is thickly padded, so it’s very comfortable. The bag is well made, but I wish it provided an extra padded insert or 2 for the equipment. If you’re the kind of person who cares about style too, the bag does appear to be a little “boxy looking”, but not a deal breaker though.” – By Vinny
