Anyone know of any good companies that make slingback or messenger bags that are slashproof and comfy?<BR><BR>I refused to leave camera, other valuables in the hotel room.<BR><BR>Should I worry about leaving stuff like that in a hotel room even if it's in a safe?

    Check out Pacsafe.
    They have a range of bags and some camera straps and ‘bag inserts’.
    Hope that helps.

    ahsleightara hit the nail on the head. They make an awesome camera strap and have some good back packs. Also check out a local good camera store there are tons of backpack camera cases to choose from. I saw many good ones at Ritz/Wolf Cameras but they were pricy. I have the pacsafe 200, sling safe 50 and the portable safe as well as the camera strap. They make a good product. REI online also has some pacsafe products. And ships within 2-3 days.

    thanks Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Do you find that the Pacsafe 200 can fit a large camera?

    Does anyone know somewhere in Australia to buy the pacsafe products?

    It depends on how large the camera is I have a canon reble digital slr xti and it fit just fine. It does hold alot. With extra room. I think the city safe 200 is the best way to go has a spot for a water bottle on the side too.

    great thanks Melanie!

    does the strap of the 200 hurt your shoulders….my concern was going out at night…does the bag get in the way of dancing? lol

    I don’t know I took my small camera and left the huge bag and huge camera in the safe in the hotel room. I took the small slingsafe50 out at night. No the straps never hurt my shoulders but i’m also kind of use to it.

    Laurenic – that link doesn’t work

    For Aussies, check out http://www.gogogear.com.au/ just do a product search by brand (Pacsafe) to see all their stock.

    Hi, if you’re not opposed to having a larger backpack to cart around – I bought the Naneu Pro K3L backpack yesterday as am planning a trip thru Europe at the end of this year or thru next year – it has heaps and heaps of compartments, it’s really comfy to wear and has chest and waist straps, a waterbottle holder on the waist strap and a compartment at the bottom big enough to fit my canon 400D with 18-55 attached and my 50mm and 75-300mm lenses as well as possibly a speedlite.

    Has anyone else taken a backpack like this over?? Is it the best option for those with DSLR’s??
