The Lowepro Slingshot 200 AW is the middle-sized model of Lowepro’s Slingshot cases. It is basically the same as the Lowepro Slingshot 100 AW but larger. The AW portion of the product name refers to the “All Weather” protection provided by a just-the-right-size rain jacket stored under the padded section of the back of the case and held in place by hook-and-loop fastener. Pull it out when needed. ? ?The Lowepro Slingshot 200 AW pads and the case itself are very protective – very typical for Lowepro gear. Quality construction is also typical Lowepro. The external material is a strong, durable Nylon. The case itself is light. The Lowepro Slingshot 200 AW is obviously larger than the Slingshot 100 – it better-holds what I typically need. It is better-suited for a serious photographer. The larger amount of gear the Slingshot 200 can hold can also make the pack considerably heavier than the 100 packed full. I found an even modestly loaded Slingshot 200 to become uncomfortable after several hours of carry. The load is not as evenly balanced as a backpack. Toploaders also have an unbalanced carry weight, but this weight is more adjustable – it can hang on either shoulder as well as either shoulder while over your head. The Slingshot 200 has a significant capacity advantage however. ? ?Carrying the 200 for shorter periods of time is not uncomfortable. The thick pad that very adequately insulates your body from the camera body is appreciated. The larger size requires a little more care while maneuvering in a crowd. Accessing the camera is convenient. We all have different preferences and needs when it comes to carrying our gear. The Lowepro Slingshot 200 AW is probably the best-sized of the Slingshots for most serious/pro photographers. READ FULL REVIEW AT DIGITAL PICTURE
