I'm looking for a good sling pack that will hold a 5D mark II and a couple lenses. I was looking at the thinktank which looks well made but not sure it wouldn't bother my shoulder with the bag hanging to one side.

I was looking at the tamrac velocity and I like how it looks where it's placed on your back and can be moved to the front as needed. Any help would be great.

I thought the whole nature of every Sling Bag was the one sided design?
I am fairly sure they all ride on the back and then get swung in front to access?

Have a look at the Caselogic SLRC-205, it may work for the lenses you have, I can easily fit a 200L with a 1.4TC and flash in the side pocket, and the main compartment takes the 5dm2 + the 24-105L, the wide strap design makes it more supportive than most slings.

using it with a BG-E6 grip is a tight squeeze but it still works with some bulges

The Incase DSLR Sling sits quite well on 1 shoulder, not unbalanced at all, quite comfortable.

+1 I love mine, I wish I had found it a lot sooner than I did.

I love my thinktank; it takes seconds to change to the other shoulder if necessary and its comfortable in either configuration - either at my back or swivelled to the side.


Drinking alcohol never solves anything. But neither does drinking milk.

Wow the case logic looks like exactly what I'm looking for. Thank you for taking the time. The video was very helpful also.
