I bought this Lolly Dolly for the simple purpose of having keys, money, wallet, handkerchiefs, lipstick, powder etc. all in one place when I go out, since I do not like handbags, I find them all too big and unpractical, especially if you travel by bike.
This little bag has it all, I could fit a small purse, a lipstick, a packet of tissues, Ibuprofen and paracetamol, blackberry and my keys in it without any problems. The string fits perfectly around neck, wrist, shoulder....wherever
The other plus is that, being a crumpler it is solid quality, the material and manufacturing are second to none.
I simply love it!!! ( And you can get it in different colourways as well!!!)

I bought the Crumpler lolly dolly to protect my lovely canon powershot sx200 (with its unbelievably huge and delicate lens). I chose Crumpler because I have had one of their laptop bags for some years, and know that their chicken-tex fabric is incredible, their products are incredibly hard wearing, extremely weather proof, and very good looking.
This camera case does not disappoint. With a much harder shell than most comparative bags, I feel confident in its protection; I have dropped it on numerous occasions with no damage to the case, and certainly not to the camera inside. On the back it has a very strong velcro strap that can be put round a belt or bag, for easy access to the camera. Inside it has two main sections, one I use for storing the camera, and the other for storing my computer cable. It also features a number of neat little pockets within those two sections as well, which i use for storing a spare battery and memory cards.
I have used this case in some torrential rain, and not even a drop has gone through the fabric (as with my laptop bag). I would thoroughly recommend that you purchase one of these to protect your camera. I cannot speak highly enough of Crumpler and their products after my experience with my laptop bag, this case, and three other cases.

BOUGHT THIS CAMERA BAG FOR MY NEW LEICA D-LUX 5 AFTER CHECKING THE MEASUREMENTS - ONLY TO FIND WHEN THE BAG ARRIVED IT WAS TOO SMALL. THE MEASUREMENT IN FACT RELATES TO THE MAXIMUM SIZE AND DOES NOT TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE CURVE OF THE BAG. I CONTACTED AVIDES WHO SAID THEY WILL REFUND ME IF I POST IT TO GERMANY! THAT WILL COST ME ALMOST THE SAME AS THE REFUND! NOT IMPRESSED..........
