A decent case, but I won't be buying another. Cannot be opened/closed with one hand, inner pocket elastic has already stretched out.
- Overall good construction
- Secures well to belt/backpack
- Very water resistant
- Cannot be zipped-unzipped with one hand
- Inner pocket elastic has stretched out
It took me losing a camera battery to write this review. This is the Osprey Digistow (M). I have been using it primarily for my compact camera, a Canon S120. Although a little large, this is no concern.
The case itself is constructed well, however with a couple of fatal flaws. The wide-mouth design prevents one-hand opening/closing. This is a large drawback for me, as I like to keep my camera accessible but in its case. I have lost several quick-draw opportunities because of this.
The rear attachment portion of the case is well thought out, and secure. Note that this has three points where the hook-and-loop attachments keep things together.
Overall, this is a disappointing little case. I have gone from really liking it a couple of years ago (4 stars), down to two. I will plan on re-appropriating this case for some other use other than my compact camera, and it will work well... As a 'Digi-stow'? NO.
