hi everyone,

i need a holster type bag for when i am out with just my 7d (gripped) and the 70-200mk2. budget is not an issue just want something very strong and protective of my gear. would be great if there was a bit of room in the bag for say another lens.


EOS 5D MK3 - 24-70 MK2

While I don't have a holster bag, I do have a Thinktank bag and I love it. Here is what TT has in holsters:

I have a Digital Holster 40 V2.0 and it works fine with a gripped camera and a 70-200 (hood backwards). However, if you want to carry more gear perhaps you should look at their camera belts, modular systems and belt packs...

I use a ThinkTank Digital Holster 50 and it will hold a gripped body and the 70-200. If you extend the bag you can leave the hood in position but there will be very little protection. Obviously the downside is it will not hold another lens. The Retrospective 20 will hold the same setup and has space for more lenses but may larger than what you are looking for.

I have the "Lowepro Toploader AW 75" and recently also bought the "Naneu Pro Correspondent Series C-9" because it was offered on Amazon for under $50 last week.

I have used the Lowepro twice now, once with the 70-200 2.8 on a gripped 7D. Fit is nice and snug and the bag is about as compact as can be with this setup. I was able to slide my 430EXII in the outside pocket but padding is thin there. It also comes with a divider you can use when using a shorter lens on body to store another lens in bottom of bag. Kind of a pain to undo velcro divider anytime you want to change a lens. I have a Lowepro Lens case to add on to the side of the Toploader should I need to carry another lens.

I haven't used the C9 in the field yet but it is substantially bigger. The 7d/70-200 combo fits loosely inside the main compartment. You can actually clock the camera body 3 different ways. The real nice thing is that I was able to store my Sigma 50 and Tamron 17-50 in the "side" pocket.

Not sure which one I like better at the moment. I got the Toploader on yaBe for under $60 shipped.

How about the Kata H-16?

The smaller H-14 works great for me.

I redisovered my TT 20 v2.0 and am digging it. I love how it fits my 16-35 with mounted hood. Easy to grab rig and withdraw with no snag.

That's not a holster. But it makes sense nonetheless. How many photographers buy a holster and then attach a floppy add-on pouch or two? Just the same, the Kata you mention should be compared to something like a TT UD30 that also fits another lens and a flash unit and batteries. The UD30 gets bad marks from me for complicated access to the camera, whereas the holster opens wide for the quick-draw and shoot artist.
