The large case top is held down by a zip and a strange triple magnet system that grabs the flap as you flop it down (looks cool, but sometimes you have to fight a bit with it as you zip/unzip). The case is pretty much a perfect fit for my Canon Legria camcorder, and can take its large plastic lens hood if detached and rested on top. There's also enough room to place the transformer and 13A mains cable on top or below the camcorder when needed (although I put that in a plastic sandwich bag to prevent it scratching the camcorder). There's also the cute Chestnut Brown/Orange version of this bag, but as my camcorders black I opted for this one, with the clincher being it was £10 cheaper at £19. I like the bag, so 5*. My black/orange Lowepro Impulse 130 case arrived promptly from Amazon reseller The Tech Lodge. I've posted a picture of the case with my Canon LEGRIA HF G25 camcorder inside under customer images. One year on the bag is as good as new, although I do treat the case very carefully given the cost the camcorder inside. There's also a smaller version of this case: the Lowepro Impulse 110 for more compact camcorders.
internal dimensions are: length 22.5, width 8.0, depth 12.5 cm.
external dimensions are: length (over strap fixing) 25.5, width (front to back) 12.5, depth (height) 16.5 cm.

A couple of spare batteries will go into one of the side gusseted pockets and the other will take any extra filters. The front slot pocket (under the magnetic flap) will take spare memory cards and the remote controller. If necessary, any extra leads etc. could be put into the bottom of the bag underneath the camera.
I bought the 130 model over the 110 as the extra 3 cm bag length allows me to divide the main compartment with the provided divider to take the charger and lead or, if I bought it, the 3D conversion lens.
The bag is light and easy to carry over the shoulder. It is well padded and claims to be shower proof. I had the Lowepro Edit 120+ for my old camera and never had a problem in the rain. I wouldn't want to test it on the moors in continuous rain though.
The only possible disadvantage is that the strap is not detachable, unlike most of the other bags in the range, As I never took the strap off my old bag, to me this is not a problem.
My wife liked it so much, she has ordered one for her bridge camera and accessories, but in the alternative colour so we don't get them mixed up!
For reference, my wife's camera (Panasonic FZ200) has dimensions 13.5 x 12 (without lens hood) x 10 cm. It sits in the bag, suitably divided, either lens down or, as she prefers for easier removal, on end with the hand grip at the top. Although the dimensions are slightly larger than the bag for width and depth, because of the flexible and padded nature of the bag it is not a tight fit.
An excellent bag and I have no regrets with my purchase. At the time I bought it, this bag was only £10, a 35% of the retail price and postage free. Even at the current price which is a 50% discount it is still a very good buy.
