The Lowepro Toploader Zoom 55 AW is a holster-type bag designed to carry a digital SLR camera with attached lens (up to 80-400mm f/4.5). It is made of 600 denier Dobby polyester with a fully padded and lined interior. The bag has a horizontal divider to separate an extra lens or accessory. There is an easy-access lid that opens away from the body and provides full access to gear. The bag has an Inside zippered pocket with memory card storage that provides space for 2 extra memory cards, filter or accessories.
Built-in All Weather AW Cover protects camera gear and personal items from rain, dust and sand and neatly tucks away when not in use. The bag is carried by a padded handle, removable, adjustable shoulder strap or a belt loop. The optional Lowepro Topload Chest Harness will work with this holster bag.

I bought this to carry just my camera and an extra battery to my grqndson's sporting events so I did not have to carry my larger Lowepro backpack. I found that it fit my Canon T3i with a Tamron 18-270mm telephoto lens with hood attached without difficulty. Once I positioned the divider at the bottom part of the bag, it easily accommodated the camera, as I mentioned above. There is a small pocket on the inside flap for extra memory cards & a spare battery, and there's a larger pocket on the front of the bag that fit my trusty Canon User manual, a gallon size ziplock Baggie, and car keys/money/cell phone. It's perfect for those short sporting events when my larger bag might not fit so well when you're squashed into bleachers. If I want to carry camera, extra lens, battery & charger, flash, shutter remote, cable to transfer pictures, iPad mini, memory cards and some stuff I'd put in a purse or small overnite bag, then I very obviously take a larger backpack, but for quick excursions where a small light bag will work, I find this little bag does the trick. Oh yes, the price was too hard to pass up because it is a discontinued color, so that also had a little influence on my decision. I received it in less time than originally projected so that too was nice.
I will use for everyday storage and transport of my primary DSLR
I bought this to compliment a smaller, but similar, Lowepro bag. It makes it easy to carry a second camera and still offers it protection from the elements.
