The 26L is not a huge pack but it fits more than I would ever carry. IMO perfect size because I will use this when I travel and it easy fits under a seat.


Here it is with my 5d2 with a 24-70 plus 3 primes and my 100-400. I could put my flashes in the small side too.

I have an alternate setup that fits my 7D2 with the 100-400 mounted and the 5d2 with the 24-70 mounted plus 2 extra lenses. This is probably how I will use it most of the time. I can show you a pic of this if you want to see.

For me the Kenti can fit a lot but I don't think its designed for that. I prefer just 2 mounted bodies or 1 body with 1 or 2 extra lenses. The 2 side entry is awkward if you have a lot in it and your changing lenses. I like the Kenti if I have other stuff besides photo gear.

So I guess the answer is yes the 26L is larger and can hold more photo gear but side by side the size is pretty close

This is another good review to show what it fits

I think the thin straps actually work well for the Kenti, making it feel less bulky but I personally find both to be comfortable.

With the 26L, I need to get out and use it a bit more but overall I like it. IMO it's basically a flip side made with think tank quality and finishes. ( better dividers, zippers etc. )


This is a pretty good review I found by Ben Jacobson.

The whistler is another back entry bag he likes and it was on sale at B&H this week.

Thanks for posting the link to the review. There was some good info on the packs as well as the tripods.

I found this set up works better with 2 mounted bodies and a few extra lenses.

Thanks for the first hand info. I might have to see if my local camera store has one for me to try out. I had the smaller version for a while (Slingshot 202 I think) and just didn't find it very comfortable but maybe the larger size would be a better fit.

The 202Aw was my favorite sling bag. And I would still have it today if it would carry a camera with a 70-200 attached. The 302AW is what I replaced it with and it carries a bunch more stuff and a gripped 70D with 70-200 attached can be accessed VERY Quickly without removing the bag. Its also improved over the 202AW in that it has a padded waist band that puts most of the load on your hips if you are on a longer walk and don't need instant access to your gear.

I think its at the end of its life though as I dont see as many places carry any of the older slingshots anymore.

Please let us know how your flipside works out

I have two Lowepro Flipside Sport 15L AW bags, I also owned a few other bags prior to them - I LOVE the Flipside, during my trip to Disney it was amazing to be able to flip it around in front of me and hands free change lenses while walking or in lines. I have used it for other events too and it works well. It actually holds a decent amount without being a HUGE bag (my other bags were ginormous which is why I moved down to the 15L)

It can definitely old a gripped body, I actually can fit a gripped D750 or D7200 with a Tamron 150-600 attached (inverted lens hood) an SB900 flash and room for a couple mid size zooms or primes.

Best thing I liked was that it was a backpack - so for me felt more secure while moving around then a sling bag.

I usually don't store my cameras in my bags as I prefer taking them out placing in drawer and cleaning them up and inspecting them when I do so, but tonight was prepping bag with main and backup camera. Again the Flipside 15L sport AW by Lowepro is pretty nice (as I am a person of smaller frame the size is nice because it is NOT huge but still fits a decent amount of gear)

Here is my bag with SB-900, a goodie bag of random gear shoved in the same slot as that (extra batteries, diffuser etc), wireless remote and cleaning cloth in a side pocket, spare sd cards in larger flap pocket.

Both the cameras are gripped and have the Spider holster shoe installed - as you can see with more creative spacing I might fit more! D7200 gripped, D750 gripped, the two lenses are a Sigma 17-50 2.8 OS unattached and the D750 gripped with Tamron 24-70 2.8 VC attached. I could easily substitute the backup camera with other lenses if need be :) And then on top, I threw a spider holster web belt on there. Note- I place all of my shorter lenses with hood attached and they fit just fine standing up. The only lenses I have to reverse the hood on are the 70-200 2.8 and longer lenses.

my typical 15L set up is my 70D with the 120-300mm attached...the 10-20mm/18-135mm in a slot...and then the 2X and 1.4X in another spot...

As mentioned previously, I don't pack until I need to but I have 3 packs (2 Lowepro Flipside Sport 15L AW one in blue and another in orange), a much larger Lowepro 350 AW DSLR Video Fastpack, which sort of collects dust because it just feels too bulky for most of my uses. Also just placed an order for a Lowepr Nova Sport 35L... why? Just because :P

On that note, heading out to catch a ball game with the kids this Memorial Day weekend, so packed up for it - both bodies are gripped with a spider holster plate on the bottom (to give reference on height) - the holster plate has the pin permanently attached since I overtightened them when installing... last time I tried removal I bent one of the tools lol... The D7200 gripped with Tamron 150-600 attached, a D750 gripped on the side with a Tamron 28-300 lens for general photography use. Again figured for anyone wanting to know just what the Flipside Sport 15L can hold, again I love it because it is JUST big enough to hold some stuff but small enough that it is not a bulky item (important for someone of my height and frame as most backpacks seem to be meant for taller larger framed people) - as usual before I zipper the bag I toss a utility belt on top in case I want to holster the camera using the spider holster plates :)
