Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by My go to travel camera bag I am a travel blogger so the possibility to be weighed down by devices while trying to capture the world around me is great. I needed a bag that allowed me to pack my map, phone, (laptop sometimes 11" Macbook Pro-which fits without a sleeve) water bottle, snacks, Canon 40D battery charger, lens 28-135mm lens and hood without impeding movement or being too large to pack in my luggage. The passport sling is wonderful! I have tried others, but was dissatisfied. I love that the camera box is collapsible for easy packing, and that their is an exterior area for a water bottle as well as a packet for my phone to be accessible. Their are velcro pockets to secure additional CF cards, and with a expandable zippered area I can even pack my 70-300mm lens in neoprene sleeve.My one wish is that it was about 1-2 inches deeper as sometimes the zipper is stressed with all my gear. If you are looking to be mobile, light and want to be gone all day with minimal gear- this is your ticket! September 17, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by A relatively compact bag for your gears, comfort AND style I purchased the Passport Sling when I saw the following advantages of its design: 1. Removable camera compartment 2. Extending internal spacing 3. Lots of out-of-bag storage space The removable camera compartment is smart. Not only does it allow you to convert the Passport Sling into a daily, non-camera-hosting bag, it also allows you to place the camera compartment in a different backpack should the need arise. I have gone on a few trips aboard, during which I just keep the compartment with my camera (and a small spare lens - More on this later) in the bottom of the backpack. Another smart design is the zipper that changes the size of the bag. Normally when I use the bag as a street bag, I take out the removable compartment and close the zipper in the front, keeping the bag small enough to not bump into things while large enough to hold my belongings (tablet and point-and-shoot, maybe a thin jacket rolled up). When I go on serious photoshooting trips, I unzip that size-controlling zipper, adding extra space beside the camera compartment for a wind shell or a large lens. Finally, the out-of-bag storage space. There are two thin pockets on the sides and one large pocket at one end of the bag, all accessible without having to zip the bag open. Great for maps, water bottles, keys, etc. Very convenient. The only problem I have is that the pockets are actually not fully sealed from each other, so smaller objects (keys, pens, etc) have a chance of sliding into another pocket, causing small surprises when one is in a rush. Now for the cons. The camera compartment is compact, with one single divider with limited customization. If you use a do-it-all lens with your camera (I started out with Nikon D300s with 18-200 VR), it's not too bad. However, if you have a system of lenses that include a large tele lens (Nikon's 80-200 f2.8D in my case), you won't be able to fit that into the compartment while still having your camera body (with a lens attached --- mine is the 28-70 f2.8) sitting in the compartment. My solution for this is to put a small prime wide lens in compartment along with my camera with lens, and extend the internal space (via the zipper) to fit the tele. Bad news here though. The Passport Sling only offers shock protection on your equipments within the camera compartment, so any equipment (especially lenses) you leave in the bag but outside that padded compartment is under the risk of eating the full shock from any kind of drop or bump. Additionally, if you are one of those photographers who uses your pro DSLR with the battery grip, it won't fit in here with lens attached. If I have to come up with another con, it would have to be that the long side of the bag (that side with the extension zipper) would not conform to your body too well if you have something stuff all the way too the top (again, that rolled up jacket or wind shell). Overall, it is a great bag without much to be desired. Unless you need to carry a full system of camera body and lenses (like me on some photoshooting runs), definitely get this bag for its superior value. October 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by took the impact of a three foot fall with no damage to equipment I fell three feet on to a concrete slab with my camera equipment in my Passport Sling Lowepro camera bag. I am happy to say my equipment that was in the bag and my lens which were in the Lowepro padded lens sleeves survived the impact without a scratch! I have also flown with this bag and it folds neatly into a suitcase. I fly with a much larger padded camera suitcase, but when I am out on holiday I do not want to carry such a large bag around all the time. The Passport Sling can hold my camera and three lens in padded sleeves with room for lens hoods easily. The outer pockets are large enough to hold a water bottle as well as maps and such.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Not a Man Purse! :) I'm a long time fan of Lowepro, going back to the '80s with the Magnum 35 bag. I own quite a few, favoring the large AW types like the Commercial and MF. I have lately been wanting a smaller bag for personal photography (as opposed to pro assignments) such as gear testing, light hiking, or day trips. I tried an off-brand fanny pack and it was too small and awkward. When I saw this Passport Sling, I loved it! Just enough room for one DSLR (5D2, no grip) with zoom lens (24-105L), plus either one big lens (100-400L), or two mid size lenses, or a lens + flash, or a lens + P&S camera. You get the idea! Great for restricted gear needs -- keeps things simple and organized. Outside pockets are great for a couple filters and batteries, and a bottle of water. Maybe it is a cross-chest Man Purse, but I don't care. It does what I need in a convenient and comfortable way. :) September 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect travel bag My husband and I both loved using this bag on our two week trip to Thailand. We used it as our personal bag while traveling - on the plane, it held our passports, sleeping meds, earplugs, books, chapstick, pens/pencils, cell phones, water bottle, and camera. When we took it to the beach or around town, it carried a water bottle, hotel keys, wallet, sunscreen, camera, and sunglasses. The expandable side zipper is very helpful. My husband loved that it didn't look like a "purse" and was unisex. I loved that it wasn't too bulky. My only wish would be for the inner pockets to change - the long skinny one isn't quite deep enough for pens and pencils, so they hang out the top, and then fall out. I also wish the second inner pocket was the right size for an iPhone. With slightly resized inner pockets, this bag would be more than perfect! March 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great camera bag! It is great camera bag for metro and outdoor walks! January 20, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Perfect camera bag with something extra The bag perfectly fits my Sony NEX-6 and two additional lenses. I very much my like how the bag allows me to quickly grab my camera and change the lenses, and then 'sling' the bag on my back again to freely take pictures. There is even room for a girolla tripod, without having to expend the bag. It's light and comfortable to wear. While I purchased it as a camera bag, I found the bag to be very practical when traveling in general. The fact that it can be expended to hold much more, is just ideal. The only aspect which I think could be improved is a raincover or making the bag more waterproof. December 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bag for vacations! I bought this bag because I was going to be taking a digital camera larger than a pocket camera on my trip to Walt Disney World and wanted something that'd be comfortable hauling around all day in the parks as well as something I could carry on the plane with me to act as my temporary purse (for tickets, phone, Kindle, snacks, etc.#. This bag was perfect for both tasks! Everything I needed for my plane trip easily fit into this sling bag without even having to use the zip-out pouch. The outside pockets were perfectly sized for my phone, cigarette case, lighter and boarding passes and my Kindle Touch, wallet and other accoutrements #like glasses and hand lotion# fit quite well into the interior pouch. The little inside pockets came in handy for ear-planes, mints, extra memory cards, and the entire unit fit under the seat in front of me with lots of room for my feet. But it was in the parks where the functionality of this bag truly stood out! I’m a larger woman but the adjustable cross-body strap easily fit my size #with a lot of slack to spare# and allowed my hands to be free the entire time. It was an easy to carry bag the entire day with very little fatigue on the shoulder and the zip-out pouch was an absolutely perfect fit for the large water bottle I tucked in there and kept refilling during the day. While this bag was subjected to a lot of banging around on many of the Disney World roller coasters, safari rides and water rides, as well as on the bus trips to and from the parks, neither my camera nor any of the items I was carrying #one was a purse-sized bottle of perfume) were damaged. This isn't to say that the bag is non-destructible, but it did spend a lot of time between my feet or on my lap during rides where I couldn't fit it into the ride pouch in front of me. It was also bumped into quite a bit during crowded parades and events. I'm looking forward to using this bag for many years not only for my occasional photo-shoots but as an all-purpose 'purse' for when I go on vacations. I've already highly recommended it to my friends and family and can highly recommend it to you, too! November 4, 2013

Answer: 
Hi,

The additional 55-250 would be too wide to fit well with your camera and attached lens.
