Reviews
Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Maximum versatility I'm the proud owner of a very well-traveled TLZ. I originally picked mine up to hold a Canon 40D and 17-85 lens. At the time, I was looking for a bag that would do double-duty as a shoulder-carried bag and could also piggyback (or whatever) on my chest when backpacking. Why not just get a camera backpack? The most pressing problem with this approach is that one size does not, in fact, fit all trips. I was looking for a system that would be equally workable for a day trip or a week+ of backpacking, and that meant at least two "real" backpacks plus something like the TLZ. Since I also like to carry a longer lens for wildlife, the side straps for attaching a lens case were really appealing to me, and the weather cover was a huge plus, too. In practice, it took a little bit of fiddling to get the TLZ to sit the way I wanted on my chest. The main problem was balance - with a lens case attached, the case likes to lean to that side. I've found that attaching to a loop on the lens case on one side and to the TLZ on the other seems to work pretty well, though. Unique to the TLZ, by the way, is the location of the "D" clips on the case. Unlike many cases that center these clips on the sides, the TLZ correctly locates the clips on the rear of the case, which is critical for getting it to ride tightly against my chest when I'm hiking. In addition to clipping this bag on my chest, it's also really, really nice to be able to just unclip the bag, attach the shoulder strap, and go. I've now accumulated enough gear that I'll sometimes use a different setup for non-backpacking trips, but I still love the size of the TLZ when I don't want to carry a huge setup, and you can't beat the versatility of dropping your pack and heading off with the TLZ & shoulder strap for a side hike. I've been hauling my TLZ all over the place for at least three years now, and I'm still quite happy with it. Mine's showing its miles a bit, with dust from any number of trips adding to its character. The shoulder strap is frayed a bit, and the zipper isn't quite as smooth as it once was, but I've gotten a lot of really hard use out of this case. As a matter of fact, I'll probably pick up a spare at some point in anticipation of this one finally giving out, because I've yet to find another case that fits in the not-too-small / not-too-big niche that this one fits. These days, I carry a Canon 7D with 15-85 lens attached and a 50mm f/1.8 lens next to it. I can squeeze a 25mm extension tube, but that's really too tight to be practical. Most of the time, my 70-300 is strapped to the side in a lens case. In the front pocket, I carry spare batteries, a lens cloth, etc., and I love the little interior pocket in the top flap - it's perfect for CF cards. September 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bag, not the perfect fit for certain glass I'm a newbie in the photography world, and my wife was very kind to get me this bag as I was lost in "analysis paralysis" trying to figure out which one would work for me. That being said, I love the features and how it's size is convenient for short outings and crowded areas. It does however, not fit a dslr with an EF-S 55-250 lens on the body very well. All smaller dimension lenses attached to the camera should work well with no problems. Otherwise, it's a tremendous value for the quality of the bag and the features it boasts. September 29, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Compact and confortable It's made for travel, compact and practical you can store what you need for a little photographic tour. Camera+lens+battery+memorycard and personal device. Light and resistant also to a light rain. September 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for my needs I attached this bag to the front of my backpack using three carabiners (two attaching the top to the shoulder straps and one attaching one bottom corner to the hip belt). Now I can get my camera out to take pictures while hiking without taking off my pack. I've taken it on 2 trips so far and it's worked out great. There are also enough pockets to store the charger and extra SD card / SD card reader, or a cell phone and keys during a trip. February 16, 2014

Will my Sony Alpha A-850+ 16-35mm zoom fit in?

Sir,

I am going on a trip where I have to walk 4 to 6 hours a day and don't want to carry a backpack.

Do you think my DSLR Sony Alpha A-850+ 16-35mm zoom (SAL1635Z) fit in? I need it to fit the camera as tight as possible so that it does not jiggle around when I hike.

I want to use it with the belt loop on one side of my hips and on the other side, I will be using a lens pouch for another zoom.

Thank you in advance.

Have a nice day!

Olivier

If a camera backpack won't work for you, you may want to try a beltpack like the Inverse Series:

Will my Nikon D700 and Nikon 28-300 lens fit in?

You state that the internal depth is 110mm. The flash/ viewfinder protrusion is circa 125mm but there may be flexibility in the bag to accommodate this as the camera is only 145mm wide and the internal width is stated as 160mm.

Does it fit on S&F light utility belt?

Since it has a belt loop behind, but it doesn't have the slip lock, does it still fit on the light utility belt? If not, is there and bag that can fit a DSLR and a lens together, and has a slip lock behind?

Answers

Answer: 
We would not recommend using it with the S&F system as you described it. It can be used with a standard belt.

The closest product we have to what you are describing is the Rezo TLZ 20. The DSLR and lens that will fit is small however.
