I own two of these bags. I enjoy the combination of a velcro opening and zippers. For quick storage on the hip I use the velcro and after accomplishing the lens change I can follow up with the zippers. Very efficient. The bags protect the lens very well, better than the Lowepro and Tamaron lens cases I also own. A BIG draw back is that the belt loop is closed such that the belt has to be threaded through otherwise the loop is very secure. Because the bag is loose around the lens it tends to hang out from the belt too far, this is where the Lowepro and Tamaron are better. I tend to use the Lowepro because of this and the effort to tread the case on the belt. Because the case does not work well hanging on the belt alone, I use the neck strap to support the weight and the belt loop to hold the case from bouncing and swinging. The convenience of changing the lens with the Nikon is so much better than the Lowepro, I have a hard time deciding which to use.

not durable

PostedSeptember 15, 2011
I purchased a 70-200 nikkor lens and have been using this bag attached by the belt strap for 8 months. The bag is tearing apart at the seam and almost useless to carry my lens anymore. I would hope that Nikon would include a bag that is more durable in the future considering the original cost of the lens or at least honor a warranty for it's replacement.
