“There are lots of great things to say about the Lowepro Slingshot 300 AW. However, one of our female reviewers pointed out a possible problem with it for women. The single strap sits right across your chest. Some women can find this uncomfortable – if you find a seatbelt awkward then you certainly want to try out a Slingshot before you invest in one. Also larger breasted women may find it difficult to spin the bag round. Once it’s on the front of your body it sits relatively high on your chest. If you’re Built for Baywatch then it might be difficult to get the camera out, especially if it has a long lens fitted. You might need to consider one of the smaller Slingshots that sit lower on your hips.”

I think the comments above regarding comfort for those with a larger chest are right on target. I will say that the concept and execution of this bag are terrific. It is a thoughtful design which is very well crafted. I started with the 200 but realized that with my 70 – 300 zoom on my camera that though it could fit, it was to snug for my taste. I upgraded the next day to the 300 which has ample room. The waist belt system on the 300 is more like those you would find on a back pack rather than a nap sack. I think this should be an asset for longer walks or hikes. Overall, I give this bag a solid thumbs up!
