Both our wristlets and pouches have many uses that we're sure our females haven't thought about or considered when looking for very small form fitting camera cases and ours are still compact enough to take up very little room. First, both are very well padded, and the wristlets have 2 interior pockets for memory cards or other small items. Second, both the wristlets and the pouches have a wrist strap included. What if you would like to quickly take items out of your purse and carry them on your wrist, without carrying that bulky purse? Third, the wristlets have a crossbody strap included, like our messenger bag. Ifyou want to use it as a small purse, there is room, along with a slimeline camera or cell phone, for credit cards, money, and maybe a small lipstick. Both body strap and wrist strap can be taken off if you would like to carry the wristlet or pouch in your purse or carry-on. So, the bottom line is, our wristlets and pouches give you so much more versatility and style for your money than just considering them as very small form fitting camera cases for your purse.
