This filter pouch securely holds three filters in their own padded slots. The surfaces of your expensive filters will not be damaged. I use this extensively for traveling and backpacking with my camera gear...without worry of destroying my filters. As stated, the case is "compact"...it usually stays in my cargo pocket on my pants so I have the filters I need easily accessible.

These cases are much better than the "wallet" style holders, as each filter has its own padded space. The wallets tend to transfer their material to the filters or damage the delicate coatings on the glass.

If you are going to do any traveling, looking to carry filters in a compact camera bag set-up, or go backpacking with your gear - get this case.

Excellent construction. I can see this lasting a lifetime.
The only reason for not giving it 5 stars is the redundant buckle+Velcro closure.
Clumsy to open with one hand in the field and the Velcro tearing noise upon opening will alert any wildlife within 1/4 mile. Velcro has its place, but not on a tiny case like this.

Securely holds three 77mm filters without marking or scratching them. The strap holds the case to my camera strap securely; I haven't lost it yet, after using it for about a year. I'm about to purchase a 2nd one.

Edit: After some extended use, I've had to drop my review to 3 stars. Don't get me wrong, this is still a great product, but I DO NOT recommend it for low profile filters. It has scratched several of my lower profile Hoya filters. Standard depth filters will be fine but low profile filters will be toast unless you wrap them in microfiber cleaning cloths before inserting them...

I purchased this case based on the following needs:

-quick and easy access to filters
-holds only the filters I need for the lenses I'm carrying when hiking or out-and-about
-secure external attachment to my sling for fast swapping

All my needs were met perfectly.

This filter case is very durable, and has a build quality that will surely last for years to come. The velcro is very secure--the back velcro strap has an added snap button for that extra bit of security and the front velcro is just as secure with the added benefit of a plastic snap--your filters aren't going anywhere. It has stayed attached to my bag or belt on long hikes through bushes and bumps with no problems. I don't need to check to make sure things are still attached.

The padding is good enough to keep my filters from damaging each other (varying sizes) and the height of the pockets is perfect for easy access without having to dig for them.

What else can I say? If this case design is what you're looking for, then the product will make you happy. Quality all the way.

The Tamrac S.A.S. Compact Filter Case is well constructed, rugged, and will hold filters securely. That said, I found two problems, on minor, one major, with the design:

Minor: the pockets don't expand in true "accordion" fashion due to how they're sewn to the back. The result is the front pocket is smaller than the back.

Major: No photographer in their right mind would entrust their filters (as shown in the product image above) to a case where anything would touch, contaminate, and possible permanently damage them. That's why all quality filters come with some type of hard container for storage. The size of the container drastically reduces the size of the filter the MX-S5363 can hold. A practical maximum limit may be as small as 50mm.

This is a nice add-on for the Tamrac bags. I have decided I need a bigger one though. This one holds 3 filters, keeps them secure. Be aware if you are where the wind blows that sand/dirt may get on the filters if you attach this to the outside of the bag with the Velcro strap. I was on the beach and came home with a little sand in mine. The filters were still fine, but didn't like the fact I had sand in there.

I just bought this holder for my 2 Cokin ND filters (rectangular shape) and for my Circular Polarizer. I was reluctant getting this as I didn't know whether the NDs would fit, but they do (second one a little tight). It will however not fit a third rectangular filter. The pockets look protective and I like the fact that you can put it on your belt or hang it to your gear bag. Very happy with the buy.

I just got this item, put my B+W MRC filters in it. took them out after a few hours, and there were markings all over the circular polarizing filter. They were NOT there before, since the filters are also brand new. The fabric inside this item is not soft enough and I fear it might damage my filters, so I will be returning this item back.

I found the case to be exactly what most others have said, a good value for the money. I keep 2 72MM filters and my lens cap in this pouch attached to my belt when I walk around.

A lot of people don't realize it, but keeping your lens cap clean is just as important as your filters. Why stick the lens cap in your pocket and pick up a boat load of pocket lint. I'd rather put a nice clean cap back on my camera lens, and I don't have to try to remember where I put the cap!

I do agree however that the velcro AND snap is a bit of overkill, but better more than less security!

After some thorough research on various photo lens filter cases, I chose this one for several reasons:
1. I've bought Tamrac products in the past and have been very pleased with the quality and value;
2. It came in a pocket form factor rather than a wallet, which allowed it to fit inside my camera case; and
3. It was reasonably priced.

Fifteen minutes after opening the package, it was back in its box and in my closet, never to see the light of day again. The product description states that it "provides quick access to three filters up to 77mm in size in separate, foam-padded slots"; yet I could not get my three 52mm filters to fit into the case. I could get one into rear slot easily, I could get one into the middle slot if I used a lot of force, but there was no way I could get the third filter into the front slot.

So now I'm back to square one, in search of a good quality filter case that will fit in my camera bag.
Anyone have any suggestions?
