trying to decide on a new bag that will take 350d,70-200 f/4 lens and a couple of other smaller lenses and also speedlite 430ex.
will they all fit in the 200 or do i need the 300 instead.
the other alternative is the tamrac velocity 9x
i had the rover aw but got sick of having to take it off my back every time i wanted to get the camera out.
thanks

Have a look here http://www.cambags.com​/camera_bag_mainpage.h​tm (external link) then click on "slingshots" then the 350d reference in the AW 200 box ...... all becomes clear when you get there.

Thought about the 300 myself but was put off by the non removable waist strap and got the 200. Brilliant bit of kit. :)

When I had my XT I had no problem getting a gripped XT with mounted 17-85 along with my 70-200f4, 100 macro, and 430ex in a 200. Even managed to substitute a 100-400 for the 70-200, but it was tight.

I have the velocity 9 and the same camera setup, its a great bag and will easily carry what you listed, the only niggle I have with it is this. When you have it fairly high up on your back where it is the most comfortable and less likely to bounce around, when you sling it around to the front it sits too high for easy access so you have to loosen the strap to lower it and then re tighten when you move it back to the rear. Adjusting the strap is very easy but it does become annoying having to do it whenever you move the bag.

If you told us exactly what you're carrying, as int he other small lenses, be better help.

I just got a 300AW and in the main part of the bag I'm able to fit:
- Body (20D or 5D with grip on..shutter side up)
- 70-200mm or a 100-400mm (mounted on body..hood reversed)
- 24-105mm
- Hood for 24-105mm
- 50mm f/1.4 (Cokin P Filter bracket lives here too)
- Tripod Collar* for either of the above (with 1.4x TC riding inside it)
- 580EX Flash
- Cleaning Stuff (Pocket Rocket, Lens Brush, Small Dustoff, Kim Wipes)

In the top of the bag/pockets I have:
- 5 Cokin P resin filters
- Hoya CPL
- Cable Release
- Flashlight
- Advil / Aleve / Band Aids (Clumsy photographer...)
- Couple more CF cards
- WhiBal on Lanyard

(* The tripod collar could stay mounted but I found that if I put a divider over the lens, this makes a nice cozy spot for me to slip in a Garmin GPS.)

I really like the 300AW...I give it two thumbs up! :D

I have the slingshot 300. It's based on use. I know that the 300 is perfect size for me without everything being cramped into the bag, however, I wouldn't use this bag if I was using it as a travel bag (that's where my vertex 200 comes into play). The slingshot I use if I want to carry minimal items, a couple lens, a body, filters, battery, etc. It can carry a lot, however, it's primary use is for outings, hiking, festivals, etc.

300 if you want to carry your gripped body with 70-200 f/2.8 attached, with hood reversed, with or without 1.4x t-con attached. If you don't want to use the waiste strap, simply clip it closed, tighten it up and tuck the ends up into the rain cover slot. Rain cover slot also doubles as a magazine or newspaper holder. It is a pretty nice pack, but I would not want to carry it packed full of stuff very long or far. Great pack for swinging around, removing camera and shooting, then quickly stow the camera and move on.
