These are a few of my favorite slings

Looking for the perfect camera bag for your digital SLR camera? Here are four, single-strap sling bags that provide ample room for a day of shooting as well as protection from weather.

I'm obsessed with sling bags for digital SLR cameras lately. Mostly because I haven't stumbled upon one that solves all the problems I have (with my camera gear I mean).

I want one that keeps me organized of course, but also one that allows me to comfortably carry around key equipment for a day of shooting and gives me fast access to a camera so I don't miss any shots. It also needs to have some amount of weatherproofing and of course, a comfortable strap, and a good number of pockets.

Below is a slide show of four sling bags I've come across so far that are pretty close to the mark. If you have any suggestions of what other bags might be a good fit, feel free to leave a comment.
