Hi, I am considering buying this. Any owner can help me by giving me feedback whether this bag is practical and is it comfortable as a shoulder bag and backpack? I will go TCW to take a look but nothing beats a user review.

Thanks.

Hi, I mostly bring only 1 dslr w/lens and a tele so space is plentiful. I just wonder about the ergonomy and practicality of the design being a shoulder/backpack and hope some owner can give me their views. I am thinking of using this bag as a photo-travel clothing bag. As for regular standalone shoulder or backpack I have already have quite a few.

clothing bag? :dunno: u mean for putting clothes as well? :bigeyes:

generally shoulder bags are easier to deploy, but may be stressful on a shoulder. i own a Safrotto shoulder bag before but forgot wad series. the stitching not very robust, not sure about the current quality.

bagpacks' advantage is better weight distribution. good for long walks with full load, but taking & keeping the cam repeatedly is a hassle.

been using the L-series (lowepro 300aw replica) for quite a while, seems tough as my previous lowepro 100aw, or maybe im not rough enough. :embrass:

Bro, Safrotto F series is a shoulder/backpack that can be converted vice versa.

Oh the shoulder strap can be remove (one end male, one end female) and use as a belt.

thanks to Whoelse for the pics! :)

hmmm... ok, personally hybrid sling/ backpack not my preferance. i would prefer having a dedicated backpack + shoulder bag combo. as long as TS not lugging a full height tripod, access to cam via shoulder bag is always faster.

i have never used such a bag, just not me to. :cool:
