Lowepro Adventura TLZ 30 III mini review

You don’t always need a giant backpack or a multi-pocketed shoulder bag or a wacky sling contraption. Sometimes all you want is a protective pouch to keep your camera out of harm’s way when you don’t need it and ready to access when you do.

The best camera bags will let you pack all the gear you need for a proper expedition, but if you just want to chuck a camera in a bag for an afternoon out, it’s overkill. That’s where the best camera holsters and pouches come in.

The Lowepro Adventura TLZ 30 III is a perfect example. Its top opening is just about right for a mid-size DSLR or mirrorless camera, and it’s deep enough for a good-size standard zoom. It even accepted my Sony A7R II/24-105mm f/4 combo, which isn’t bad, given that this is a bit of a monster lens.

The generous depth means that if you’re using something smaller, like a Lumix G9 and 12-25mm f/2.8, or a Fujifilm X-T4 body with an 18-55mm f/2.8-4 lens, you’re going to have a bit of spare space in the bottom, and it’s a shame Lowepro didn’t just stitch in a fold-down flap so you could stow an extra lens (or something else) in the bottom if your camera and lens didn’t quite fill it. Still, that’s a small point.
