OK, sorry ! My bad ! the "add to cart" button is in the "Warranty" selection box... I may need another coffee LOL!
I was going in the wrong info when I loked at the "Stock Level" tab.

There was a part of text saying:
QuoteQuote:
Online Availability: Instore Purchase Due to limited stock or special conditions, this item is available for instore purchase only.
Anyways, thanks for the link, I'll order a Sling bag at that price, it a really good deal (they look very similar to the LowePro Slingshot 100 ! )

The sling looks nice, and at that price it's not a big risk.

It would be nice if we could see the inside. I can't find any pics of the bag open.

Here are some photos I snapped with my cell phone. It's always so busy in that store, and they're renovating now
The first two are of the Sling type.
The last two are of the regular type. The regular one opes from the side.
I guess the sling type is slightly smaller.

The regular price on the regular one is $29.99

The sling bag seems to be a Lowepro Slingshot 100 knock off (maybe the 200 if its bigger than it looks in the picture. The backpack also looks familiar, but I can't place it.

I may drive over to Brampton and pick up a backpack tomorrow. These remind me of the Crumpler 7 Million Dollar Clones being sold by an electronics store chain a few years ago - exactly the same bag as the name brand version, minus the logos (a plus to me) for 20% of the price of a "real" one.

OK I bit and bought one. Too bad there are no outlets in Wpg, however the $10 and change for shipping seemed fair. Thanks for posting!

Picked up the backpack. Not as big as my regular one, but still of sufficient size, and a bargain at the price.

Picked up the backpack today. I had to ask for it since the Brampton store had a crate of them in the back but none on display. Roughly the same as the LowePro Fastpack 200 except with a larger side entry door and minus the waist belt and back that zips open.
