The case's material seems like it would provide decent protection against bumps and scrapes as well as against water.
The case opens with a zipper with two convenient zipper pulls. The zipper is located such that it is very easy to open the case and remove your camera quickly if it is attached to your belt. With the case attached to my belt, I found that it didn't really impact my natural walking stride.
I've used this case with my Sony NEX-5N when using longer zoom lenses attached, such as the Vivitar 28-210mm all-in-one zoom for Minolta MD mount with a Minolta adapter also attached or with a Tokina SD 70-210mm for Konica AR mount with a Konica adapter also attached. The Vivitar lens mentioned above has a wide 72mm lens diameter, but this does not cause any problem for this case. These lenses even fit in the case nicely with macro extension tubes also attached.
This case is about the size and shape of a bicycle seat, albeit a bit thicker. I'd highly recommend it for use with a Sony NEX or other mirror-less slr camera if you are planning to use some longer lenses (such as zooms in about the 200mm+ range or a longer macro lens set up.) If you're planning to take it out with the kit zoom (18-55mm) or other shorter length lenses, you may wish to look at a smaller carrying case instead.
Only issue I've had w/ this item is the grey plastic around the zippered top have begun to wear w/ minimal use. It's not a great protectant, but if you take care of your hardware, it's a good buy. For the price, I expect this not to last years, but I'll get at least one out of it before it falls apart. Quality isn't great, but for the price...
More important, however, is when I've got my camera out to shoot, I hate the fact that my camera and most commonly used lens (the Sigma, which is over 3 lbs) are only held up by my camera strap. If my strap fails, my equipment's gone. So here's a solution I configured with this case that allows for super quick access, while still keeping my equipment safe: I wear the case over my should (it comes with a shoulder strap) with the top unzipped. I also strap my camera over my shoulder and attach the hood so it's ready to go. I can then drop the camera with lens hood attached into the case, basically like a holster. That way, I've got both my camera strap and the case's strap securing my camera & lens. The camera sticks out about 2 inches because of the hood, but that's actually fine since I'm looking to be able to grab it quickly. Takes less than a second to slide out and start shooting.
Last complementary note: That little mesh pocket pictured on the front of the case is pretty handy for keeping track of your lens cap. I assume that's what it's there for.
With my Nikkor 70-300mm lens attached to the D90, it's a very tight fit. I can still get the top zipped closed, but I wouldn't want to take the camera in and out a lot with this lens on. It's OK for transporting the camera to my girls' soccer games, but I keep the camera out the whole time once I get there.
The shoulder strap that comes with the case is narrow and is not comfortable with the weight of a camera pulling on your neck/shoulder. I replaced it with a wider shoulder strap I had from a small duffle bag for more comfort. The hand hold handle is well padded and comfortable.
The leather like material on the outside and the soft lining material are holding up well. The coating on the rope type material at the seams is wearing a bit.
There is sufficient padding in the case that I don't worry about the camera getting bumped around while I'm wearing it.
Overall, I would recommend this product.
