Hex Ranger DSLR Sling | Worth Your Money?



   The Hex Ranger DSLR Sling (Regular) sized bag is an awesome camera bag. The bag has 2 pockets on the back with one of them having a small rain cover for it (It rained crazy down here in San Diego this past week so that was helpful).  I have had this bag for the past 5 months and it is my main carry for my lens reviews and quick trips around town to shoot.  I use the bigger back pocket for my memory cards or batteries.  The inside container has a red liner pocket you can use for additional small accessories and there is a front pocket outside the bag as well big enough for your keys and wallet.  I keep it simple when i go out (2 lenses max) so this is more than enough for me.  It is a phenomenal bag for street photography or for quick trips.  If you need something bigger you may want to go for their Ranger Sling XL.  This one is perfect for me, for now.  It is made of what Hex calls “Ballistic Cordura Shell”. The bag feels good across the chest, it feels very sturdy to the touch and above all i trust it with my gear.  Can it take a drop with your expensive camera gear inside of it?  I believe so.  Am i going to test that?  Nope. I take care of my stuff.  TAKE CARE OF YOUR GEAR FOLKS!!!  This is a good bag for that in my opinion.  The material between the bag and your gear feels quite sturdy as well, with a protective sponge type material probably made to protect the gear inside the bag.


  • SPECS: Dimensions: 14.5″ L x 7.5″ W x 4.75″ D | Weight: 1.3 lbs | Capacity: 8L

The Lens Hooche Verdict

   This is a super sturdy 8 liter bag.  It works for my short trips and the lens reviews I am working on.  It perfectly fits my massive Canon 1D Mark IV, Mark III as well as my smaller cameras.  Granted, when i take the big boys out i only take one mid sized to small lens.  For the compact cameras i can take as many as 4 lenses if I wanted to, eventhough i always keep it to 2.  Bottom line is if you are looking for a medium sized camera for your short trips this should be on your list ($60).  Get it, you will love it.  They have 7 different colors as of the time of this post.
