Your favorite holster bag

I am looking for a new holster bag. I saw one using one the other day and I wished I woulda asked which one it was. It looked like it adapted to the size of the lens (a semi opened bottom) and had other lens holder attachments surrounding it.

I can't seem to find it online.

I was wondering if one of you out there has it or one like it.. or if not post your favorite one you use.

I'm guessing holster bag = snoot bag?

My recommendation is to test some at the local photography shop and find one that's well balanced with the camera inside.

I had one that tended to be a little top heavy with the camera in it, and unfortunately one day as I unclipped the front buckle it shifted, spun upside down, and proceeded to dump my camera onto the concrete below me.

Based on that, I personally refuse to use them now, but if you get one with decent buckles and the strap clasps nice and high on the bag, it should be ok.

My wife has this Think Tank holster case. It's a nice one. I have this Tamrac 519, which I like a lot.

Vote 2 for the Tamrac 500 holster bags. I have a 515 and like it very much. The only thing I don't like about it is that it tends to attract too much of the wrong kind of attention. Zoom bags they tend to scream "expensive camera" apparently.

I have two Tamrac bags, and like them very much.

Think Tank is two quality levels above. The bag I have of theirs (Urban Disguise 60) is far better made than my Tumi laptop bag.
