      This case is absolutely the best! I would rate it 5+ stars. Simple, effective and reasonably priced. I currently have two of these cases. I use one with my Canon S90, and the other one with my Canon SD880 IS. They attach to the belt with ease and have a very low profile. I carry this case on my belt for hours and I hardly ever know it is there. Finally, it is virtually indestructible since it is made out of ballistic nylon. The inside of the case is a smooth nylon, so it will not scratch your camera. Buy it!

      The product is well-made with a slim profile, but I find it undersized (too short) for the Canon S95. The manufacturer should not be recommending this case for the camera. Because the case is too short for the camera, there are open gaps on either side of the closed flap that will let dust and debris in. I'm trying the Tamrac 5690, so hopefully that will work better given the top flap design. I also considered the Tamrac 5691, but the length dimension seemed too long for the Canon S95. The case loses two stars simply because the manufacturer recommends this substandard case for the Canon S95.

        It fits great if you're planning to bring along an extra battery, other wise the S95 will be a little loose in the camera bag, it is small and easy to loop around belt staying well secured.

                  Comments about 5686 Ultra-Compact Digital Camera Bag (Black):

                  Several years ago I bought this same pouch for a Canon SD 800IS and it continues to serve well. I recently purchased a Canon SD 4000IS from B&H and thought I would get something a little better. I checked out every pouch available... there's a lot, and wound up with the 5686 again. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this newer version has received some useful enhancements. The belt loop now has a velcro closure sans snap so you don't have to undo your belt to get it on. The accessory pocket has it's own small velcro closure so your memory card/ battery won't fall out. Lastly, it definitely has more padding then the previous one.
                  All the good features remain... the camera is quickly accessible, the pouch is lightweight, and it's compact size is perfect for a go-anywhere P&S.

                      Got this bag for an S95 and it is a perfect fit. Really like the velcor belt loop as you can quickly put it on any strap/belt. The case is too large to fit in a pocket well but a Tamrac 3814 works well for that.

                        Love the split bellt loop so you don't have to remove your belt.

                        Room for a battery and a SD card.

                        Not padded but not bulky either.

                          I knew about this company's products from my previous purchase of the 5680 case for my prior Canon SD550 camera.

                          This case, the 5686, is a bit larger (and I use it for the slightly larger Canon SD990 IS, though this particular camera happens to fit in the smaller case, too), though of the same design: main pocket has room for the camera only and the front pocket has room for a card or two or a card and a battery. At most.

                          This 5686 case, like the smaller 5680 has a velcro-fastened top that flips over the card case to cover the camera.

                          If your camera has an attached strap, that strap can hang out of the side of the case so that you know you are always holding the camera and not the case.

                          I also like the design of the low-profile belt clip on the back of the case; it, too, is velcro, so you can easily slip it on (or take it off) without having to open your belt. I have found the velcro on the older case to be quite "sticky" even after years of use, so I expect this one to hold out very well.
