The small auxiliary pocket at the front actually is big enough to hold my Sony GPS CS-3KA unit.
The padding of the case is thick enough to protect the camera from most outside damage (no, it probably won't survive an elephant sitting on it ...), and the flap closes the case effectively enough to provide a good shield against the elements.
The camera does not have any wiggle room, it is a snug, but not a tight, fit. It is easy to pull out of the case, without having the setting dial catch a corner and being moved in a different position (well, that happened a lot with the case I was using before - really annoying if you expect the aperture priority setting and the video setting is active instead ...).
The case, when filled with the camera and the GPS unit, is not really pocket sized anymore - good thing that they included a nice long over-the-shoulder carrying strap.
The only thing I am missing here is a strip of velcro to fixate the flap, instead of always having to close the buckle to prevent the camera from falling out. That is not a minor issue in my point of view, because I want to access the camera real quick, and to always have to undo the buckle first is certainly counterproductive. The alternative would be to just let the flap hang there without closing the buckle - do that at your own peril.
Other than that, it is a very functional, no frills, fits like a glove, sturdy as a rock camera bag.
The quality of the bag is perfect and it seems like it will last for many years with just a little care. I like that you can use it on a belt or with the shoulder strap. My favorite feature is the snap buckle closure for the top. The snap buckle is very secure but opens easily, and quietly, when you need to get the camera out in a hurry. Some other bags and cases have Velcro which works well but makes a distracting noise when opened.
If I was to add anything to this bag it would be a small non-slip pad on the shoulder strap. I like to hang the bag on one shoulder instead of putting it over my head and a little rubber or sticky nylon pad would make it a little more secure that way.
Fits snug with room enough for the camera strap. The zippered front pocket holds my spare battery and a few SD cards for a tidy, overall protective compact case. I like the option of having the sturdy belt loop for off the shoulder carrying.
I like the buckle/clasp instead of zipper to close up/secure the camera in the bag. I thought it is a little quicker to get the camera in and out. There is a separate compartment for my spare battery and SD card and there is room for another spare battery and SD card. Then there is the compartment for the camera. The liner has slippery, silky feel to it. It should not scratch the camera. The padding appear to be sufficient for protection and the outside material is rugged that I think will withstand everyday use and could handle abuse.
I only gave it 4 stars because it is not a snug fit for my camera. The bag is is a little taller and wider. It also looks a little blah to me compared to Lowepro bags I previously owned. I bought another camera bag - Lowepro Apex 30 AW. It is a better fit and looks better for my taste. I gave my Tamrac to my brother and he seems to like it alot.
