Lowepro’s Slingshot Edge caters to the city photographer slashing his or her way through the urban jungle. The newly updated lineup now offers two choices, down from three, but with a redesigned style emphasizing quick access to gear. The 150 AW can accommodate a mirrorless camera with lens attached in addition to a second lens, a small tablet and various accessories. The larger Slingshot Edge 250 AW is roomy enough for a DSLR with lens attached, a second lens, an off-camera flash, a large tablet and your accessories. Both bags feature a contoured, padded sling strap that lets you slide the bag from you back to your front without having to remove it. A built-in All Weather Cover is located at the base to protect your bag from nature’s wrath. There are also external straps so you can attach small tripods or other accessories to the bags’ exterior. The interior has a padded, adjustable divider for keeping gear safe while the outside features a stretch pocket for a water bottle, plus a side pocket with a zipper that runs from the front of the bag to the back to give you immediate access to your camera.

PRICE: $90 (150 AW); $110 (250 AW)
