Case Logic SLRC-205 SLR Camera Sling (Black) Review





After some research and trials of different bags, Case Logic SLRC-205 Camera Sling Bag is my current favorite bag to carry my Canon 70D + 50mm Prime + 18-135 IS STM + 70-300 IS lens

It's very easy carry this bag. It feels very light and the shoulder strap is very comfortable.

In the main compartment, I put my Canon 70D DSLR with 18-135 IS STM lens, this is tight fit but works. A large camera body + lens may have a hard time getting in without removing the neck strap.

In the extra lens pocket I was able to put a Canon 70-300 IS II lens and a Canon 50mm prime lens stacked. The nice little touch about that pocket is it has an elastic band near the bottom. A nice feature is elastic band at bottom of lens case to hold it in tighter.

There is also a spare pocket for small things like memory cards, battery, filters etc. It is more accessible than the side pocket, which is blocked by the tripod holder.

There is a filter pocket. The two filter nets inside it hold 67mm filters fine, though the smaller one is better suited for a 58mm filter.

The tripod holder is a very very nice feature. I have a full-size (62") tripod that I got on amazon and fits very nicely. There are two velcro strips to hold tripod in without the risk of losing it.

The shoulder strap is very comfortable and well padded.

The interior padding is decent. It's not super thick, but should be okay for minor impact.

While the zippers secure the bags well, the main compartment has two zippers. ONE OF THEM BROKE WITHIN 2 MINUTES OF USING. I could deal with using one, but the SECOND ONE BROKE THE NEXT DAY. This is the only reason why I knocked it down to 4 stars. I returned mine to amazon and ordered another so hopefully that was just a bad case.

Overall, it's a very well-designed bag for a small DSLR with 3 lenses (one small and 2 large). Importantly, it is in a compact design with good ergonomics and holds all the crucial items.

Pros:
- Holds many essential items for daily casual shooting
- Well Built (minus zipper)
- Well thought-out design
- Very accessible pockets
- Excellent value

Cons:
- ZIPPER QUALITY SHOULD BE UPGRADED (see above)
