Digital Camera World Verdict

The Shootout 14L Slim will suit anyone using after the essentials. It’s well designed for the outdoors, it’s got plenty of flexibility and can be customised to carry anything you want – as long as you don’t need a laptop or a full-frame DSLR. You could even remove everything from the inner compartment and use it as a weekend bag. Lightweight and low-cost, the Shootout range eschews over-engineering and gives you what you need for a low price.
