I have a Canon EOS M50 mirrorless camera with a 15-45mm kit lens. I'm looking for the smallest possible sling back to carry this camera during rides on my road, gravel, and MB rides. What do you guys recommend?

Lowepro Slingshot 102 AW, Mountainsmith Decent small 6L, Tamrac Jazz photo sling, If you are going to be bouncing around on a bike offroad, i would want something more secure than a sling. A regular backpack style pack, they can be had quite small but the price on the sling is quite a bit less. Do some looking and emailing at B&H video/photo, Adorama, even Amazon. B&H, and Adorama will help you find the correct bag for your camera size.

Have you looked at Cotton camera carrying systems? https://www.cottoncarrier.com/ I don't know how they would work for your needs and it's not a bag, but it keeps your camera readily available. I have the sling belt for non-biking and I'm really impressed with how well it works.

I have a Think Tank Turnstyle - not bad, but I dont think I'd ride w it. My buddy has the Hex bag - nice, but the strap is WAY too sort for me. Honestly, I ride w a Maxpedition knock off sling I got from amazon. I keep a pump, tools and such in it. Would totally fit my DSLR - maxpedition has a smaller one. Stays put. Super durable (even my 30$ knock off is...) thats where I'd look....

Hexbrand.com look decent, I have never seen one in person. but I keep looking at them. Probably due to seeing their adds pop up in my feeds..

Thought of this thread - if interested Maxpedition is having a BOGO on their legacy line. I just got their Remora (well, 2 of them:cool:). Definitely should be big enough for a mirrorless. I have a knock off that I can put my 5d in w a 24/70 on it...

I carry my mirrorless on a strap, over neck, under opposite arm, with the strap just long enough to compose an image. I AM using a 16mm pancake, but it's the best way to have instant access that I have found. Mine rides well under my arm, is out of the way, has survived many crashes over the years. I use an large aluminum lens hood to protect the lens. Just a thought, you may like it. I hate digging out my camera, loses the spontaneous flow...
