Favorite toploader?

Postby jennzee » Thu Jan 09, 2014 4:39 am

Hi,

I was wondering if I could get some recommendations for a top-loading camera bag. I have a Nikon D3200 and am looking for a small shoulder bag that will fit the body with either my prime lens (35mm) or Sigma 10-20mm lens attached to it, with storage for an extra battery and memory card. I'd like something durable with easy access to the camera, protective but not too big/bulky, and not too expensive ($50 or less). A rain cover would be great too, since I am often photographing outside. Any ideas? I'm currently considering the Droploader 10 by F-Stop (I really like this one, but I am having a hard time finding reviews for it). Also looking at the Lowepro Adventura TLZ 25.

Thanks! :)
Jenn

I really love my think tank gear. I have a retrospective bag but the city walker might also suit your needs. There are some reviews here on camera labs which is how I found out about the brand/made my choice.

Good luck with the search

Just wanted to say that I ended up purchasing the Lowepro Format 120. It fits my Nikon D3200 with the Sigma 10-20mm lens attached, which is the largest lens that I have. Super excited to use the new bag :)

Lowepro makes very good quality bags, I'm sure you'll enjoy it for years to come! Time to head out now! :wink:
