Overall Product Rating:     

This is actually quite an improvement over TT's original holsters. Before it was a tight squeeze with my tripod plate, now all fits well, and it has extra pockets and a rail for lots of expansion. The only thing I can't figure out is why there is a small strap toward the botton right.

Hey, I love this bag. Those times when you don't want to carry around all that stuff, but still want your camera protected, this bag is perfect! It is constructed to last, and has room for a few small necessities. My Nikon 300s with lens hood in position fits like a glove. This is certainly the best bag for the money that I have ever bought.

I bought this product to attach to my backpack belt...oh baby, works like a charm. Field tested last week and camera was easily accessible. Plenty of room and pockets for my needs and very, very well crafted. I cannot comment on use in bad weather, but sure looks like that won’t be a problem. Side note: Thinktank has absolutely the best customer service I’ve seen in some time. You cannot go wrong here people….really!

An improvement over the original series but TT still doesn't get it when it comes to sizes. Unlike the 3 little bears finding one just right isn't possible. The 20 is too snug but the 40 is gargantuan. May with V3 they'll get the sizing right.

I clipped this bag to the front of my backpack and carried my camera on our 50 mile backpacking Trek at Philmont Scout Ranch last summer. I left the top unzipped most of the time and could quickly get my camera in and out without missing a step.

I have only had this product for a few hours. I ordered this holster along with the Pro Speed Belt and a couple of other modular items. First issue: tight fit for an EOS 40D with Tamron 28-300 lens and a padded neck strap on the camera. Putting the camera into the case isn't much of a problem, but stuffing the strap into the case makes it a really tight fit. Next issue: it would have been a better design if the rain cover were at the very bottom instead of the side pocket. It fills up an otherwise useful side pocket. The other thing with the side pocket rain cover is that anything else in this pocket could get wet since it is open when the rain cover is in use. Another issue: I managed to hang the holster (with camera) onto the belt so it slides around. This is comes out to about 4.5 - 5 pounds. The problem? The holster wants to rip itself off the belt when I slide the case. I guess that I will have to use lock the bag in place on this belt. Maybe a little more Velcro on the side pocket side would help, or not. Did anyone test sliding a loaded holster on a belt that is on someone with a decent-sized beer gut or was the testing only done on slim people with hips, but no other shape to speak of?

Just purchased the 20 V2.0 holster and use it with my Canon 5D Mark II with the 24-105L lens, fits perfect. And instead of using my large neck strap on the camera, I temporarily swap it with a narrow one so it fits in the holster easier and doesn't take up as much room. I took out the rain cover and use the pocket for a spare battery, lens tissue & other small items that may be needed. I will certainly keep the rain cover, but I think the camera would be protected enough from a general rain. But, as mentioned in another review, I also don't know what the small strap is for on the bottom. Overall, It is a VERY good holster for protecting the camera from rain, dust & other people bumping into you if you are in a crowded area.

I have missed many great photo opportunities because I never take all my camera gear, unless it's for a job. With this holster, I can take my 5D2 & 35L virtually everywhere I go, without having to worry about damaging something! My camera & lenses fit perfectly.

I was looking for something to hold my D90 w/ the Nikkor 18-200 and lens hood installed. This fits the bill nicely and I like that the bottom expands to accommodate a larger lens. I wish the rain cover could accommodate the shoulder strap but there is no way to use both so the rain cover is really only functional if you use the holster on a belt. Like the other reviewer I also wish the rain cover didn't occupy most of the small side pocket. I've stuffed mine in my second lens holder but it would have been nice if it was somehow incorporated into the bottom. The small strap towards the bottom that a couple of people commented on is there to go around the bottom of modular accessories (like a lens holder). It serves to keep the accessory snug against the side of the holster...took me a minute to figure out why it's there but it's actually very useful.

this one won't fit Skin 50 for it's side attachment rail either

Good caee, although a tight fit for Canon 5D. Acessory rail on side great. For those that still have a question, the STRAP at the bottom is to "anchor" the bottom of a long modular pack so it does not bounce around.

I'm sorry, but I'm very disappointed about the new Digital Holster V2.0. Up to now we were using the old version for our 50D traveling around maroc and india; this is a really good camera bag. With the new one, I just got as a gift for my 5D, you made two steps forward (integrated side attachment system and stretchable front pocket), but three back (small pocket inside for rain cover is gone, small accessory pocket underneath lid and business card pocket are not longer made out of clear plastic). But the most worse thing is a velcro on my camera equipment while taking pictures of wildlife animals. "Scratch, scratch"... I guess you had to keep an eye on the production costs; it's too bad about the good concept of the Digital Holster...

Functional and Convenient I just received the Digital Holster 20 v2.0 for use with my Sony A900 and CZ 135/1,8 lens. I wanted something that would allow me to leave my L-Bracket and camera strap attached to the camera body. This holster is the perfect size for my complete kit. When I inspected the holster I was impressed with the quality and nicely designed features. I removed the rain cover from the side pocket and placed it in the base of the lens extension. This serves as a shim and extra padding to bring the camera flush to the top of the bag opening. The holster comes with a sturdy detachable shoulder strap although I opted to use my own UPStrap HD with ‘Vectran’ fasteners. The exterior zippered side pocket is gusseted with an elastic interior sub-pocket with a horseshoe shaped opening. It easily holds my extra battery, 77mm filter or similar sized accessory. The main zippered topside closure includes an exterior slotted pocket suitable for business cards while the underside has a slightly larger Velcro pocket for my CF cards. There is also a nice elastic exterior flat pocket that will hold something like a parking stub, receipts, lens cap or a couple of Granola Bars. The backside has a Velcro flap and plastic reinforcement for use with the optional holster belt. It lays’ completely flat in the closed position and doesn’t get in my way. Overall, this is currently my preferred day bag for street use or when I simply want to carry the basics. Though I would like to see a little less Velcro and color options, its quite impressive in its current form.

Way too tight a fit for the Nikon D800 with the 24-70mm lens & hood attached. I am barely able to get the camera in & out of the holster. So snug I am affraid I will drop my camera while trying to get it out. I absolutely hate the way the zippered top opens in its reverse direction, flipping front, rather than back, or to the side, like everyone else's cases, It is extreemly hard to unzip to get to my camera. A real dissapointment. It sits in my closet & is never used.

I find this the ideal holster for my D300s with Kirk's L-Bracket attached. True, not much room left a strap but I now use the TT strap, like it, and have plenty of room for it. I close the LCD protective flap and tuck the strap between the flap and the top of the DH 20. My D300s usually wears a Nikkor 16-85, and fits perfectly w/the lens hood extended-remember this is w/the Kirk L-bracket AND, recently, with a video style hand strap attached. It's full, but works just fine. W/either my Strobe Pocket or Little or regular Stuff-it attached, I don't even need my belt. If I need more than one side attachment, I wear the belt. My Domkes are now used only for home storage or for shooting from the seats in a stadium. I am very satisfied with the holster, belt, and modular component set.

Im Very Very Pleased with my Digital Holster,the quality and workmanship is superb.Everything is very high quality,I was puzzled when I read some of the reviews before purchasing this item,with several people complaining about the rain cover filling up a useful pocket.MMMmmm To me you couldnt get much more useful than a rain cover to protect $3000 worth of camera from a torrential down pour! you can still put batteries in this pocket etc.The elastic pouch on the front is perfect also for the Pixel Rocket! I will be doing a youtube video soon!

My Nikon D800, with RRS L-bracket and 24-70 f2.8, is a sufficiently tight fit that it cannot simply be lowered into and lifted out of the holster. It must be eased in and out. When inserting or removing the camera, I am always careful to do so on a solid surface, or to first place the camera strap around my neck, so that if I fumble the operation it does not fall to the ground. But I can live with that - the holster affords the camera excellent protection and easy is to carry. Even though I regularly carry an Airport International V2.0, the camera normally travels separately in its holster. I just wish it had a secure pocket for a spare battery and additional memory.

*PLEASE MAKE THE VELCRO FLAPS BEEFIER!!!* I use this with Canon 7D, RRS L-plate attached, up to 70-200 f/4 (hood reversed) and it fits fine. The spandex outer pocket is perfect for a small padded set of filters (like a 3-pack padded sleeve). Spare batts and CF card fit fine in the pocket that carries the all-weather cover. I tried attaching a padded lens case to the holster's attachment point and it works but was a bit awkward to carry. My big issue is that the velcro flaps on the belt attachment mechanism are not long enough! If the velcro were longer, or included a more positive lock like a button clasp, then this holster would be 20x better. I use this holster and the DH10 holster on my daypacks and overnight packs to give me a hip-carry of my camera that is accessible without impacting mobility when I am hiking/skiing etc. The hip carry comes with more risk than chest carry, but I find it very ergonomic. The problem is that it doesn't take much to undo the velcro, and next thing you know your equipment is barrelling down a hill. I am *constantly* checking the velcro flaps as they loosen very easily due to size/geometry, and I've had the holster come off a few times in the field. I know that this is not the intended use of that attachment point (to attach to a pack rather than a TT harness), but I guarantee that there are several other folks using this attachment flap for the same purpose. Durability has been top notch, with this and my DH10. Zippers are good quality and never bind. I just want beefier velcro and an updated chest harness attachment accessory that's more similar to Clik Elite's designs. Keep up the good work!

Perfect fit for a 5D and almost any lens up to 70-200. Nice, snug fit (why would anyone carry a neck strap when their camera is in a holster?). Versatile. Very well made. Easy to get in and out of. Rain cover is easy to use and effective. I also love the Slim Changer, which is how I carry the 5d w/40mm pancake lens. Just wish Think Tank would make something between these 2: a really compact holster bag for a small DSLR with prime lens only.

A lot of the pictures I take are during hiking or snowshoeing outings. I want my camera stored when not in use, but readily and easily accessible when I want to shoot. Also, I don't want a camera bouncing around on my chest or hip. The DH20 meets all my needs. Having to attach and remove the lens hood over and over again gets old really fast. With the DH20, I can store my camera with the lens hood in place. I also use the pro belt which is substantial and allows me to push the holster behind me or bring it to the front in one quick motion. Combined with the neck strap, the camera and case are securely attached to me. My only quibble is with the design of the "rain coat". The neck strap prevents the rain coat from fully covering the top of the case. Hopefully, this can be modified in future versions and available for a retro fit. I used the DH20 recently on an 11 day hiking trip in the Canadian Rockie Mountains. It proved to be an excellent product. Well designed and well built.
