Shootout Sling bag lets you shoot long or fast

The new Slings are unique in their ability to be converted from a "quick-draw" shooting bag to a long lens bag configuration, offering significantly more versatility, especially to sports and wildlife/outdoor photographers.

Tenba makes a lot of bags for all kinds of cameras and equipment. Featured in the video above is the new $103.95 Shootout Sling, which for a bag fetishist such as myself is simply dreamy. It's designed for immediate access to your camera and to keep gear organized (a given), but is also quite capable of swallowing a dSLR with a mounted 300mm telephoto lens, just by removing some of the interior padded walls. Watch the video to see what I mean.

The bag's made from water-resistant nylon; uses weather-sealed YKK zippers on all outside openings; has monopod straps, protective rubber bottom treads, and a front-mounted phone/audio pouch; and includes Tenba's fast-deploying WeatherWrap rain cover.

I haven't used or tested Tenba's bags at all, but if anyone has, please let me know what you think. This one looks pretty freakin' sweet.
