I absolutely love it in terms of aesthetics and layout…In fact, it’s one of my favorite looking bags. But the limitations posed by the sling strap are a deal breaker in terms of comfortably carrying the bag. And after all, I’m not always quick with my photoshoots…So I need a bag that will hang in there with me and not wear my shoulder(s) out in the process.

I won’t be picking this bag for every outdoor photo mission since a fully loaded sling is still a little less comfortable than a backpack on very long days, but for shorter hikes when I don’t feel like a need a lot of room for items other than camera equipment, the PhotoCross has definitely earned a spot in my closet.
