Pros: Large, durable, zipper and velcro seal
Cons: Very stiff zippers and flaps

I got this bag as part of a camera + lens bundle off of eBay. It's hard to judge it's price from the package so I said $0.00. I've seen this bag included with other bundles on eBay so I imagine it's kind of a freebie.

The bag itself is just OK. It's big and roomy but a little stumpy and short. Stuffing a longer mounted telephoto lens may be a challenge. The camera will rock back and forth (side to side) in the bag because of the roomy width. Accessing the camera once inside the bag can be cumbersome. The flap is zippered and sealed with velcro against the bag's body. You need to flip up the stuff overlapping flap to access the zipper and my zippers were stiff too. Maybe they just need to be cycled a couple hundred of times.

Some bags have little tabs by the ends of the zipper path so you can straighten the path the zipper will travel. We don't think of these tabs much until we have a bag without them... like this one! Since these zippers are stiff I wish there were some tabs to pull against here.

The accessory pockets are also big and room and I find handling them much easier than the main compartment with the combination velcro and zipper.

I'm not a tall person so I find the shoulder strap to be just long enough when it is relaxed to its longest length. Don't go crazy weighing this bag down. It doesn't feel like the strap could handle it. That's fine. There's only room for a camera - not a locomotive engine.

I do like the little suitcase handle on the top cover.

The bag is just OK. I wouldn't seek it out for a purchase but since it works as a decent bag and I happen to have it I will continue using it. There's no need to throw away a working product even if it isn't the greatest.

Pros: Well constructed, cheap (Amazon Clearance for $9), quite useful.
Cons: Relatively small main compartment and will not fit a camera with long lens (55-300mm)

I bought this holster off Amazon on clearance for $9.00. Though, itís still available online from other stores for ~ $30.

Holster appears to be well made with thick nylon material. Front pouch has enough storage for x4 AA Batteries, Mini Charger, USB and power cables, spare memory card and one 52mm lens filter with case. Lid has an inside mesh pocket with enough space for an IR remote control, Microfiber cloth and one 52mm lens. An adjustable shoulder strap is also included.

Camera compartment has more than enough room for my K-x with18-55mm lens. However, the camera will not fit if a long lens (55-300mm) is mounted. Lid has an overlapping lip covering the zipper around. Lip is little hard to flip up and down due to its thick nylon material.

I use this holster as a primary luggage for my K-x and other essential accessories. It is far more convenient than carrying a backpack particularly in places where I would only need one standard (18-55mm) or other small lens. Apart from the hard to flip zipper covering and the relatively small camera compartment which can only house a camera with short lens, Iíve been more than satisfied with this product so far and will continue to use it as a quick carry-on luggage for my dSLR and other bare necessities. Considering how much I paid for it, I really couldnít complain.
