Do you need a cheap and functional camera bag? If so, check out the Adorama Slinger which is going for 50% off at $29.95.
It is water resistant, and big enough to hold a DSLR camera with lens.
Personally, I use a far more expensive ThinkTank Urban Disguise 35 (got it for $75 on Craig’s List!), but the Slinger is a great option if you are on a budget.
I plan on reviewing the Urban Disguise 35 soon. It is by far the best camera bag I’ve ever seen or used. It is compact, tough as hell, and incredibly well-designed.
You can actually stuff a laptop, a DSLR with a lens on it, two more lenses (or a lens and a flash), and more accesssories, all at one time! It also has a waterproof cover built in that you can whip out in the rain, and most importantly, IT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A CAMERA BAG – great for those undercover jobs. And oh yeah, the zippers are really tough – a sign of a well-manufactured product.
Yes, this bag is expensive but I expect it to last for many years. It still looks brand new after 6 months of heavy use.
