    This bag is great! My only complaint is my lack of foresight rather than with the bag itself. I originally got this for my Pentax K-x, and with the 18-55 kit lens installed, I could also comfortably carry the non WR version of the 55-300 lens. The side pockets are great for phones, wallets, or other equipment. The front zipper compartment has an open pouch and two velcro secured smaller pouches for use with memory cards. The open pouch will easily hold 4AA batteries or two dedicated pentax batteries. When I upgraded to the K-5, the bag did not suit my needs quite as well. The K5 has a bigger body, and I’ve also upgraded my lenses. I still love the bag, but everything is a much tighter fit. I’m still making it work, because I love how small the bag is for walking around. I’ve taken this to Yellowstone, Barcelona, Seattle, on day hikes, and more and its never been a bother, even when loaded with batteries and a spare lens. Highly recommended for someone with minimal camera gear who’s trying to get into photography.

    Lowepro Adventura TLZ 15, good minimalist case for Fujifilm X-E1, May 12, 2013

    This is a nice little toploader for a small, compact system camera. In my case, I traded an older Canon DSLR for a new Fujifilm X-E1 with 18-55 kit lens, which is much smaller than the Canon body (EOS 40d). I needed to downsize my older Lowepro TLZ.

    I was looking for a simple topload zoom type case that fits my new system but is as small as possible since my primary use for this will be to attach to the sternum strap of my backpack while on extended backcountry trips. This keeps the camera at the ready on my chest since removing my overnight pack is a hassle. A larger case in this position restricts my peripheral vision, is heavier, and is awkward hanging off my pack straps.

    This fits my new Fujifilm very well, if not perhaps slightly snugly, in the lens-down position. I typically use a Really Right Stuff L-bracket with this body. The camera will NOT fit in the lens-down position when the L-bracket attached. However it will fit in the lens-to-the-side position with L-bracket attached….which will be the typical way I’ll carry this. I suspect if I purchase any larger lenses in the future, such as the 55-200 zoom, it will not fit in the sideways configuration.

    All in all, the case is well made, simple, provides enough storage area that I can fit in a small SD card case (Gepe type), a couple extra batteries, and maybe another small accessory or two. If this provides the long service life that my older Lowepro did, I’ll continue to be very happy.

    This is a very new case to me, so I can’t comment on long-term durability only to say it appears well-made. I hope this review is helpful for someone looking for a simple, low-profile case for a Fujifilm X-E1 (I had a heck of a time finding one that wasn’t oversized).
