Pros: Well made
Cons: Black only

The Pearstone Onyx 60 is made so similar to the Lowe Pro lens cases that it would qualify as a knockoff. It has all of the same attachment points as the Lowe Pro Lens Case 1, that I have. For me the main attachment point being the highly secure belt attachment that hold the case tightly to your belt and body, no flopping around like some attachments.

The main reason I bought this case was to hold my Tamron 10-24 with it's extra wide hood attached, which it does. The only problem there, and not a fault of the case, is that the rear of the lens can move a little since it is at least an inch in diameter less that the hood. I will probably add a little padding from a bag so the lens fit snug with the rear going in first. Edit 10/2/2012 - This case has held up well with a lot of use, I did add a couple of small lens bag pads inside since the hood of the Tamron has such a larger diameter than the lens barrel. That works great. I don't know of another case that would fit the Tamron 10-24 in the price range.

I have not had this case long enough to know if it will hold up as well as the Lowe Pro, although I see no reason that it won't. I have only had it attached to my belt once so far, for about eight hours with no problem.
