Reasonable design but fell apart in two weeks!
on 6 February 2016
The design has some good features, with separate pocket for spare batteries, cloth and cards and the padding is quite good. It fitted the TZ70 quite well at first. It's waterproof under reasonable conditions.
But the belt loop - an essential for me as I have binoculars round my neck - was far too wide at about 6.5cm. There is a Velcro attachment but you can't reduce the loop size.The widest belt I have is 4cm and on the trip for which I purchased this, my belt was about 2.5cm wide. This meant the case hung off rather awkwardly. This may have contributed to its very short life.
In only two weeks of daily use, but no extreme treatment, the seams at the back both split - see picture, and there was also some fraying elsewhere. I had to use the neck strap which was not what I wanted to do. The padded inside started to ruck up after about one week which made replacing the camera after use very difficult at times.
I will contact the vendor but wanted to warn other potential purchasers as soon as possible.
