    I guess the deal has already ended - I see a price of $39.95 for both of the above bags.

    I admit it, I am a bag whore. I bought one. Ten bucks is too good to pass up!

    If it was any color but bright orange, I might grab one!

    I've heard very good reviews about that Passport Sling bag, I just can't get over the styling on it.

    If you had an orange GM1, it would be perfect! :)

    I agree on the Passport Sling. I've long thought it looks very functional, but its shape seems maybe to "feminine" for me to pull off. This price makes it interesting, but I've already got too many bags.

    I have one in tan color I paid $49.95 for at WalMart when it was first introduced. The styling did take some getting used to but it is one very good bag for working out of with a lightweight m4/3 body and a few lenses.

    One thing I really do like about it is that it doesn't really look like a camera bag, it doesn't scream "Really expensive stuff" so you don't draw a lot of possibly "unwanted" attention to yourself. Especially with a small enough camera like the Lumix GX1 or GX7.

    I have the Passport Sling and it's a very functional bag. Pretty durable, doesn't look like a camera bag as Bif mentions above and that little lift on one end allows me to fit my meFoto tripod in there - so it holds a good portion of my kit without any of it being exposed. The shape does look a little odd - I've had a friend say it looks like a diaper bag - but never had any weird looks or anything.

    Thank you for the link..I snagged the sling bag. Once I try it out I can let anyone know if they need another opinion.

    I got it. It is smaller than I hoped (7L AW) I guess I should of read the dimensions. I am surprised it is considered a $39 bag.
    Funny part -- was the fact they had a coupon for 10% some future purchase... but the coupon expired last month. Smooth move Adorama.

    Something must be changing your above links as I'm seeing prices of $47.95 and $79.95.

    Sorry, I see the high prices you mention following the links I posted, but I still see the low prices, including the one for the small 7L bag following links from another forum. Perhaps, it's because I have written the links not as they appear in a post in that forum, but as they appear after clicking and being redirected to adorama. My guess is that a number in the link identify the forum and that helps to get the deal, so hoping it is not inappropriate, I rather include the links to the posts in that forum with the links to these bags (and others) in adorama:

    http://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/94-pentax-price-watch/300724-more-adorama-bag-deals.html (for the 7L, $9.95, it says "low stock" and it won't allow to add to cart)

    http://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/...ood-deal-lowepro-camera-bag-adorama-17-a.html (for the 17L, $15.95)

    http://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/94-pentax-price-watch/301095-dangling-some-more-lowepro-bags.html (for the 35L, $22.95)

    Thanks for the additional links, I picked up the 17L. At $16 with free shipping it was hard to pass up. I usually use an Event Messenger 100 but with certain sets of lenses something slightly larger would be nice and it looks like the 17L will fit the bill. I usually find Lowepro bags to be extremely well thought out.

    Yes, I bought a 35L yesterday and I'm impressed with the quality and thought that's gone into it.
