miggo Agua 25 Stormproof Holster Photographers who enjoy traveling light and shooting in all types of weather will appreciate the black-blue Agua Stormproof Holster for Cameras from miggo. This holster helps protect the camera from dirt, dust, moderate impact, and boasts an IPX3 rainproof rating. The Agua 25 features dual zipper pulls, an interior, slip-in, stretchable lens cap pocket, and quick-release, locking strap buckles. The bottom of the holster has a thermo-formed rigid exterior with a soft interior for protecting your lens from impact and scratches. To use the holster, simply attach the camera connecting cords to your camera strap lugs. On the opposite end of each cord is a quick-release buckle for attaching the padded shoulder strap. For speed and safety during storage and use, the holster remains attached to the camera connecting cords. To adjust the length of the strap, simply pull on the D-rings located one at each side. The holster may be easily carried without the shoulder strap by connecting the camera lug cord's quick-release buckles together to form a handle. For strength and durability your Agua 25 holster is made of neoprene, tarpaulin, Lycra and plastic.

Well, even though the Miggo buckles NEED to be pushed together a certain way, there's no preventing you from accidentally buckling one of the pieces upside down. I did this recently by accident and found the buckles could not be undone - every time I tried to release the buckle, the little plastic lock would pop from the "unlocked" to the "locked" position - thereby preventing me from uncoupling it.
I admit that buckling them the wrong way is user error on my part. However, considering that there's no physical distinction between the top and bottom of the male buckles beside being slightly concave in one direction (see pictures) and that there's no preventing the male buckles from being pushed in the wrong way, it's a bit of a design flaw. I had to cut the buckle attaching my camera body to the bag so that I could use my camera on its own.
I've wrote to the seller to get this fixed. If I can, I plan on putting dots of red nail polish on the "tops" of the male buckles so I don't accidentally do this again while on the go. The female buckles have the blue locking tab that differentiates the top and bottom.
The zipper doesn't close as easily as it does in the demo video. It's a two hand operation to close it, not one hand. But it is a one hand operation to open it.
This was especially effective walking around in bad weather. And you never worry about getting hit with a surprise rain.
I carry the A7Sii with the Sony 24-70 GM lens attached and it fits just fine. That lens is especially large for a 24-70, but since the A7Sii itself is rather thin, it comes to about the same overall length as most regular DLSRs with a 24-70 attached. For this setup, there's no problem.
Unfortunately, Miggo doesn't sell a version of this bag that would allow a 70-200 attached, which I would prefer. Miggo does sell a separate bag that allows a camera body with the 24-70 attached, and a second space for a non-attached 70-200, but this doesn't work for me. It would be great if Miggo would make an in-betweener, like, say, an Aqua 55, that is shaped like the 45, except longer, so folks who walk around with a 70-200 attached would have an option. I would buy that in a flash.
The lens cap pocket doesn't fit an 82mm lens cap, which is a bummer.
The internal buckle for added protection against slipper hands is excellent. Thanks to that extra internal buckle, I've also been saved from dropping the camera twice (EDIT 04/2017): More like over a hundred times already!). Once when picking up the bag when the main zipper wasn't closed properly and the camera wasn't sitting in the pocket well, and a second time when trying to grab the camera with freezing, numb hands. I can't imagine taking a camera out in cold wet weather without this bag.
Protection seems adequate but not particular good. If you bang into something with this bag, e.g. if you lean forward suddenly and the bad swings around and hits a hard object, I'm not sure the camera wouldn't be damaged, but it's still loads better than having a naked camera on a sling strap. And frankly, I keep the strap fairly short, the the camera doesn't really swing around when I lean forward. You can move and twist about pretty aggressively (within reason, of course), and the camera won't move much.
I do wish the camera sling came with at least a couple of tiny pockets on either side, just a little extra space for a few tiny things. The Miggo 65 torso would do the trick, but I don't need that much more space, just a little extra for spare batteries. Miggo sells a separate mini pocket that you can hang from the strap, but that doesn't strike me as a good solution. I'd rather the holster was a little less trapezoidal and a little more rectangular, to hold batteries, cards, a small cleaning kit or cleaning pen, and maybe a spare micro usb cable. But, all in all, can't really complain.
Update : After using this bag the entire year, I am still very happy with it. I did a week long backpacking trip in the mountains of Colorado. The weather not just rained the whole time, but poured, big time. This bag kept my DSLR nice and dry the whole trip. So much to the point, where I trusted it at night hanging on a tree while it was raining. Granted, you have to be careful of your wet hands when opening the case. The inside lining is neoprene, so it will soak up water and become damp. The lining can be removed to let air out and dry quicker.
It has kept my camera clean during wind / dust storms while backpacking in the Grand Canyon. I feel that it's been pretty much tested out in just about all weather extremes and has performed better than expected.
I like this bag so much my camera pretty much lives in it now.
After a year of adventurers, it is starting to show wear and tear, but anything will of being rubbed against granite or sandstone rocks many times over. :) I am happy with the durability.

However, do not expect to pack everything advertised. To my experience, a 5D with 24-105 F4 fit in. It's already tight with another lens (16-35 F4).Read more
