Found these two for cheap cheap cheap. Of course, looking at the how much they hold;

Camera with lens, facing up and another lens on the side...

Then the material doesn't look all that comfortable... almost carpet-like in the first link. Of course... looking at the dimensions: [ 8.5 x 7 x 3.75 ] means this thing is tiny... and feminine perhaps? That could be a good or bad thing depending on your tastes.

The styling of the second looks like it was made by a rejected Jansport designer... or something meant for a 13-17 year old. But it looks like it's pretty well padded. It's a pretty good size: [ 10.75 x 9.25 x 3 ].

But, budget wise... can't really beat something under 35 bucks.

Opinions?

Hi Daniel,

You aren't by chance connected with Buy.com are you? I notice that you also linked to that store in this post which makes three out of three in the links posted vs. links to Buy.com posted stakes.

I appreciate it isn't always possible but if the context allows it is generally more helpful to link to a manufacturer's site rather than your favourite store. The reason is that we are a worldwide community and country specific stores aren't very useful for members who don't live in that country. It also saves your hard working Moderators some time spent wondering if a particular post qualifies as SPAM. :wink:

Bob.

P.S. I decided pretty quickly that your post wasn't SPAM. :)

Not at all. I just like my deals. :)

They happen to have them for these items. I posted a link to Amazon and BandH before when I was looking for my first DSLR. I actually would prefer BandH due to they're good customer service and all that, but they are constantly on holiday lately!!! What's up with that?

I love this community thus far. Very resource heavy and knowledge base seems to burst at the seams. I'm just some Yank from the Colonies... haha... okay I got that from watching too much BBC...
