    The design uses too much velcro for my taste--it has button + velcro for the belt attachment and snap + velcro for the main compartment. Tamrac could probably remove the front or even both velcro connections without much complaint.

    The belt clip can attach to pretty much anything, including normal belts and fanny packs.

    This case will actually fit 82mm filters very tightly, but you will have to sacrifice one of the 3 slots to be able to remove them somewhat quickly. Same goes if you carry the (very thick) 77mm Canon 500D magnifier. Not too bad for something so small.

    The lining inside is uneven. The front side of each slot is a softer material than the back side. What the heck?

    Bottom line, it's small and gets the job done. Perfectly fine for 2 filters and a couple step-up rings. For times you need a bit more space, try the Tamrac MX5388.

    I have not found a better solution, but this one is not perfect. The positives are:
    -easily and securely attaches to nearly camera bag or strap
    -holds the filters securely and separately
    -closes securely so filters can't come tumbling out
    -reasonably small space requirement

    Negatives are:
    -a tighter fit than is needed, making it often difficulty to get a filter out when you need one NOW
    -filters tend to 'sit down' in the storage slots within the case, making it hard to get your fingers on the SIDES of the filter where they should be..it's easy to get your paws on the filter glass in the process of getting the filter out

    And, the biggest gripe: filter slots, while "padded", are lined with ballistic nylon, rather than something softer. Given the cost of 3-4 high quality filters, I'd much prefer something was kinder to glass. Frequent insertion/removal could wear the powder coating off some filters, and there is nothing in this arrangement that helps keep the filter glass clean.

    I use this, but keep looking for a better solution. Listening, LowePro?

      Comments about Tamrac MX-S5363 Compact Filter Case:

      I got this to hold my Skylight filters and polarizing filter. I hated always fumbling around for one and trying to find a safe place to put the other when I was switching them out. This case holds the large 72mm round filters perfectly and straps right on the side of my camera bag. Great little case with quality construction. I will probably buy another for my square filters.

          I got this to hold my round 72mm Skylight filters and my Polarizing filter. I hated fumbling for them and trying to find a place to put one when I installed another. Now all of them fit in this case that straps to the side of my bag. I will probably get another to hold some square filters. Great fit and finish. Love Tamrac!

              I quickly got sick of swapping out my polarizer and trying to store it in it's plastic case. This pouch is very convenient, and my 67mm filters fit snugly.

              Comments about Tamrac MX-S5363 Compact Filter Case:

              Very well made with good padding but it could be ever so slightly larger. With a 77mm polarizer and a 77mm Variable ND filter, plus a third 77mm filter it's a little too tight. If it were just a bit longer vertically you could fit a few 85mm x 107mm ND Grad filters in it but you can't. The belt loop opens and it fits on Lowepro SlipLock loops as well. I cut some dollar store microfiber clothes to wrap the filters to protect them when sliding them in and out. Buckle is nice but it also has Velcro.

                  Hard to accidently spill or lose anything out of this case, but easy enough to access. Belt loop has a snap and is large enough to fit over other case straps. A Little deep for filters less than 60mm...

                  This pack is very nice but tight with three 77mm filters inside. It's difficult to remove filters when strapped to the strap or case so I need to remove the case to handle them properly. I bought this holder because their other one is a bit too large (holds 5 filters) and I don't always need that many when out hiking. I feel the buckle is not needed as the Velcro is just fine.

                      The filter slots work fine for my 67mm filters. The only item I have added is the foam insert that came with my Hoya filters in an effort to prevent possible scratches to my UV and Circular Polarizer filters. I am still a little concerned about whether or not the foam padding will eventually cause some scratching of the side of the filter not protected by the foam piece I inserted. The filter case works fine with my Tamrac Velocity 6x case.

                          I bought this to carry two 77mm round filters which I use from time to time. The bag has three compartments and, despite some other people saying it could be a bit tight, I found it holds my 2 ND filters and step-down rings perfectly.
                          The flap closes with both a clip and velcro, which is very secure but personally I hate velcro so I took it off. The clip works fine on its own.
                          There's also a belt clip on the back, which I was really pleased about because I can clip this onto the outside of my Lowe Pro bag, big plus there.
                          Overall I think this is a great product for carrying a couple of round filters, and it's pretty cheap.

                          I used to keep my 77mm filters in the protective casing they were shipped in, but those casings took too much room in my bag. This Tamrac pouch is much more compact for my filters at only 1 3/4 inch thick at the lid area and 1 1/2 inch at the buckle area with three filters inside. The back loop, which is 1 inch wide, allows it to be attached to the side of my bag for an easy reach. The loop is secured with a combination of Velcro and a snap.
                          At the front, there is Velcro along with the buckle to secure your filters and I don't mind the extra Velcro because if I forget to close the buckle, my filters are still secure.
                          77mm filters are a little on the tight side, but the material will stretch over time.

                            Does exactly what it's meant for. Protective, while not too bulky. Perfect for my two (soon to be three) 77mm filters.

                              Useful, Nice, Simple. Works well.

                              I only wished the belt securing system were a bit more sturdy. Regardless is a keeper.

                                This is the second one of these I have. Old one still going strong. Great protection for your filters, and well made. Fits on the Tamrac bags S.A.S. loop, or just throw it in the bag.

                                    Exactly what I was looking for.
                                    May be attached to the belt, but also fit in almost any pocket of the photog-vest.
                                    Comfortably holds (3) 67mm filters or (2) filters and spare lens cap + filter.
