Thanks for the summary! I've added this as a link to the bag review thread.

Just got the bag from Best Buy, and I must say the quality of it feels and looks much better than even the Canon back pack that I had returned.

Th Slingshot 200 is the smaller version of the two that Lowe Pro offers and def packs a bang. I can fit everything I need for a small day trip. Its very comfortable. Im going to try it for a whole weekend at Disneyland soon so ill keep u guys posted.

another great feature is that its water proof all around but also incase of heavy downpour or on the (splash mountain ride) at Disneyland, It has a pull out bag like device out of the bottom, that completely engulfs the backpack to make it impervious to water....:)

I just got the 202 AW today and in terms of space/access i like it.

I think my biggest problem at the moment is actually having my tripod with me! The tripod holder is on the right side and it seems to "tip" my bag making it feel more uncomfortable. Am I doing something wrong? :S Seems like the tripod holder should have definitely been on the "back face" or other side (but then they might have had a design issue with making it quickly accessible...)

probably. I still have my slingshot from ages ago, and I recall carrying my 30D gripped (7D will be a little larger, but should still fit).

I also have the SlingShot 200 AW. I use it when travelling light, especially when flying. It fits nicely in the overhead compartments on a plane.

If packed carefully it will take a heap of gear. It's also very comfortable when walking long distances.

Will the Lowe Pro Slingshot 200aw fit a Canon 7D with battery grip?

Easily plus a couple of lenses. I carry my gripped 50D plus extra lenses without any difficulties.

I had given my old SS200 to my 2nd shooter.... roughly a year later it developed an issue with some of the stitching... Lowepro exchanged for a new SS202, and my 2nd shooter is very happy!
