No More Rumble-Clatter-Boom in My Camera Bag
on October 9, 2012
These protective lens pouches are surprisingly well made. The neoprene is thick enough to provide sufficient cushion between lenses in any backpack or camera bag, though I would not try dropping a lens on the floor while it is in one.
Each of the four pouches is a different size. The largest just holds a Sigma 70-300 with lens hood still in place for quick access to shooting (yes, the pouch still closes). The largest should accommodate a Canon L series lens, but without the lens hood attached (the diameter of the lens will make it a tighter fit). The next to the smallest easily holds an 18-55 kit lens.
On every pouch is a belt loop. Each one is closed with a nicely appointed drawstring and self-holding hard plastic loop-lock, like those found on jackets and outdoor gear. While it does not open on its own, it is easily slid open for rapid access to the lens inside.
Others have reported an unpleasant smell with their pouches. While I can smell something if I lean into the pouch, it is not readily noticeable otherwise (I think I will avoid wearing one over the nose on my face, just in case...LOL).
When I find low priced quality products it just makes me smile. I am very much smiling with regard to these very inexpensive pouches. They will do well for me for keeping the lenses free of dust while on the shelf and protected from bumps while in transit. Other items, like expensive flash units, can also be protected by the smaller pouches. These are a real bargain.
I liked the original batch so much I bought another set for the rest of my lenses and flashes. This batch does have a very slight scent, but based on my last set I think it will dissipate quickly.
