  • Bag Review – 247 Medium Holster is a Little Workhorse

    IMG_0785

    I have been testing the 247 Medium Holster bag for a couple weeks now and it certainly seems to be a very capable bag when you just need to grab your camera body and couple lenses for an afternoon of shooting.  Actually, it’s quite fun to carry on a street shooting adventure or even to a baseball game.

    I loaded up my 247 Medium Holster with my Olympus PEN-F and these lenses, 75-300mm, 60mm Macro, great short distance lens for sports, the 17mm prime and the Body Cap Fisheye.  I was set for a few instances and still had some room in the back zipper to hold paperwork and things like that.

    The outside of the 247 is very tough outer shell material, which felt good but was still tough to stand up to the streets or whatever I threw at it.  It can be worn across the chest or on the shoulder with its removable strap.  I also liked the side clips, which spin so the strap wouldn’t tangle.

    Another feature is the attached weather protection that comes out from the bottom of the bag and is always there if you happen to be caught in a rainstorm, nice feature.  Another couple features which I liked was the SD card holder and the front pockets were good for a lens cloth and lens pen which are always necessities to take along.

    The main compartment was well lined and padded and easy to find items with its orange color material.

    Overall I really liked the 247 Medium Holster for a quick bag to hit the streets with.  I would have liked to see a small sleeve for a water bottle.  That would be a nice addition.  I would recommend the bag to all those looking for a nice bag that won’t break the bank but can hold your micro four-thirds equipment and keep it safe.
