(From company literature) Tamrac 5747 Velocity 7 Photo Sling Pack Convertable. Though it doesn't look like a camera bag, the Velocity 7 - Photo Sling Pack is a unique, ultra-functional pack that carries like a backpack, but by swinging it around to the front provides quick access to most digital or film SLRs long zoom lens attached, additional lenses and a flash. The modern sling design comfortably distributes the weight of photo equipment, but the real advantage is that, unlike a traditional photo backpack, it need not be removed to quickly access photo equipment.

The Speed Flap™ Top and Easy Squeeze™ quick-release buckles provide security and complete rain coverage to the foam-padded main compartment. Inside, adjustable, foam-padded dividers provide a custom fit for equipment. A smooth nylon pocket on top holds filters and accessories while the front of the pack has an outer mesh pocket inside to organize film and accessories.

Carrying the sling is effortless with an adjustable, ergonomically designed, foam-padded strap that keeps the pack snug against the body. A Tuck-A-Way™ waist belt allows the pack to be used comfortably and safely even during vigorous activities such as hiking and biking. Pick up the pack with the convenient EasyGrip™ carrying handle. Add optional Tamrac accessories using the attachment slots for our Modular Accessory System™ (M.A.S.™) products to customize this ultra-functional sling pack.

Pros: unobtrusive; versatile
Cons: photo-brand (obtrusive :-)

Bags can become too large to carry around easily. Not this one. Really good size. For an indoor opportunity, I carry a flash with the camera and lens. For outdoor, I carry a wide and a telephoto lens. While packing for a vacation, I can actually get it all in, both an extra lens and a flash.
Of course, it allows for the usual extra battey, a lens cleaner, and some filters.
The total package isnt very obtrusive although of course, one might recognize Tamrac and suspect it a camera bag :-)
I love the sling in general. The extra strap for around the waist allows for steadying on my hikes.

Pros: Carries a lot for a small bag
Cons: no zipper for main compartment

This bag is great, it's easy to carry, small enough to be unobtrusive, and can carry enough equipment for most ocassions. My normal load for this bag is a Nikon D50, with 28-70 lens attached, 50mm, 70-300mm, spare cam battery,SD cards, and a Sony PSP with 2 extra games in the outside compartment. I only wish it had a full zipper closure around the main compartment which would help keep out dirt for those windy days and moisture on the rainy days.
