Question Camera Bag - sling style maybe

Hello, I am in need of a camera bag. I am an amateur photog just trying to get back into the fun! I think I'd like a sling style for ease of quick access to camera and, hopefully, easier on my back and neck. I have a Canon Rebel T6i, 18-55 and 55-250 lenses. I really doubt I will expand my lens collection. If I had a bag that would hold these three items and a few filters, lens caps, etc. I would be happy. It would be something that I drag around with me all the time so should be durable. Thank you in advance for any advice you are willing to share whether it is a specific product or thoughts in general.

The only editing that I do is size, cropping and auto light fix. I have yet to learn manual setting or photo editing.

I've sometimes used a photographer's vest with pockets for everything except the camera. That was carried by its strap to always be handy. A well designed photographer's vest makes the equipment seem lighter than a typical bag.

I've tried this and it works reasonably as described. I'm curious about a sling bag as I expect to be travelling this year and might want to opt for using one.
