4.0 out of 5 stars Tamrac MXS5363 Filter Case, January 10, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Tamrac S.A.S. Compact Filter Case (Black) (Camera)
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.

Get a piece of velcro from a fabric store, cut to size and put on top of the velcro on the pouch. Some bags nowadays even come with matching velcro pads to give the user the option of covering them up for exactly the reason you mentioned.

Happy shooting!

I agree with Zack, or you can do what I did; cut the stitching and completely remove the velcro.

Thanks. I did the same. My review was criticizing the thought that went into the design rather than suggesting a remedy. I understand the redundant closure for the heat-of-the-battle field use, but the appropriate plastic snap would be less disruptive and just as secure.
