Small bag for the 70-200 f2.8 alone

Some events are being restrictive on camera bags (and other types as well). For example one military air show will only allow clear bags.

The LA Auto Show restricts bags to no larger than 12x15x6 inches in size.

I will be attending the auto show with my Canon 6D and 24-70 carried on a Black Rapid (no case).
I'll also take my Canon 70-200 f2.8 II, so I'll need a bag for it that conforms to the auto show policy.
With the hood reversed, the lens measures about 9" long by 4" wide.

Any suggestions?

How about a Think Tank pouch?

I like the pouch a lot. But then I'd have to buy the belt to support it. I'm not a belt guy.
Maybe I can attach a shoulder strap.

The velcro on the pouch is really strong and plentiful. You could thread a shoulder strap through it as long as it wasnt too wide.

What about the pouch that comes with the lens? It has attachment points, as I recall.


Cheers, Damien

Oh man, I completely forgot about it! Thanks for the reminder.
It was in the original box buried in the hall closet. Had to dig around for it. ;-)a

Should work fine and the size is within auto show limits.

The shoulder strap that comes with it is skinny and probably not comfortable.
I bet if I look around in the closet I'll find a better strap.

I have researched some of the small bags for 70-200 mounted as follows;

1. ThinkTank Holster 30/50 V2.
2. KATA -Kata KT DL-G-16-B Grip-16 DL Holster
3. Vanguard Outlawz 17.
4. Lowepro Toploader Zoom 55 AW II


Out of these 4, TT bags are compact but lack enough protection.
Kata bag is good with nice side pockets for battery and an additional lensd as well. I doubt if it is available in the market or not.
Vanguard bag is touch but size is little bulkier.
Lowepro Toploader is good.

How much protection do you need? Your camera is tougher that you think. These are bags that you wear, not shipping cases.

@mike_d I had compared various bags and ended up buying Kata DL 16. TT holsters are good. But the side pads are thinner than Kata or Vanguard. I know these are not shipping case but why over react on simple opinion.

They look interesting. I needed a lens pouch to fit on the side of an existing bag just recently, and I couldn't really find anything suitable apart from the bulky and rigid Lowepro lens cases. I may have bought one of these instead, if they had been available.
