      Before purchasing this Flash Bag, I carefully checked out many paying particular attention to dimensions. I wasn't sure this bag would fit my flash because the dimensions of my flash were a bit larger than the description but I wanted something that would protect it more than the box it came in. (I carry it in a backpack with the camera, and several other tools I use as a lighting consultant. It was quite susceptible to damage in its original box.) The flash fit into the bag with ease and the pocket for (8) AA batteries works like a charm as well. It exceeds all my expectations and even though I still move my backpack with care, I'm confident that my flash is now as protected as all the other tools in the backpack. Couldn't be more pleased.

      I purchased this to fit my Tamrac Velocity 7x camera bag because of there Modular Accessory System (M.A.S). That just means that they built in a place to hang it from. The product is well made and great for storing my flash with a diffuser on it, but it hangs way too low on my bag, and there is no way of adjusting this. If they made the entire security flap with Velcro then it would be able to adjust properly, or if they made there (M.A.S) strap on the bag wider it might pull tighter on the bag. For now it looks like an unwanted appendage hanging from my bag, and catches on everything. I will modify this myself and then it should work fine. I love my Tamrac bag, but they should not advertise there (M.A.S.) system unless they have actually tried it out first.

            Comments about Tamrac MX5385 M.A.S. Flash Accessory Pocket - Large, Black:

            I purchased this as a belt case to use during events so I didn't have to keep the flash on top of the camera. I have found after using the case for awhile that it has become invaluable to me. I use this case on the exterior of my (Lowepro sliplock attachments) bags and as a belt pack. The case offers great protection along with added space to keep my Sto-fen diffuser attached along with fresh batteries. I have both this case and its little brother for my 430ex. The bottom line is I will never own another flash without one of these cases to go with it.

              I am using this for One of my Vivitar 483 flashes, so I can have a fill flash with me. Well padded, extra wide Velcro closers, and the rear strap can wrap around anything or thru a belt with Velcro + 2 snapes. I also like the little front pocket for extra batteries, at least 8+..
              My Canon HD Vixia Camcorder fits in with room to spare..

                        This a a perfect accessory to my Tamrac pro 8 bag. My speedlites are well protected and easily accessible. I love the front storage for batteries and pc cable. I connects to the back with velcro for easy attachment and removal, if I need. I highly recomend this product for Tamrac owners. If you don't own Tamrac products. maybe you should consider them.

                            Never disappointed by a Tamrac product. Bought this for my 580EX speedlite. Fits perfectly with a diffuser attached. Much better than the case that came from Canon. Really like the fact that it attaches to my other M.A.S. products.

                            This flash pouch is a perfect fit for my Canon 550ex, both with or without a Sto-Fen diffuser attached. I haven't had it long, but it appears to be well made and of a durable fabric. The padding is thin so the pouch isn't excessively bulky, but it still provides some protection. My only complaint is that strap on the back to attach it to a belt/bag is too wide to fit on the accessory strap of some bags (including my Lowepro Top Loader Pro). Overall, a good flash pouch, especially for the price.

                                I used it to keep the flash on the belt without carrying a camera bag. I just carried the camera with the camera strap and the flash on my belt, very convenient.

                                  I have this on the side of my Adventure 74 backpack and have been very happy with it. I use it to hold my 580EX flash; it's much quicker to get the flash out of the MAS pocket, as opposed to setting the pack down and opening it up. It also leaves more room in the pack for other gear.

                                  My only complaint is that the battery pocket built into it is a little tight - with the flash inserted, it's hard to get anything in or out of the battery pocket.

                                    I have a Sigma flash.It came with a pouch without any belt loops it is totally useless. Bought this pouch and it is great.

                                    I use this to store and carry my Canon 530 flash. It gives a little extra protection, better than sticking it in my pocket as I used to when it drizzled outside!
                                    The battery pocket on the front would have been better if it also had a Velcro closure.

                                        I purchased this flash bag to carry with my Tamrac Pro Zoom Pack as an alternative to carrying a large bag; this is exactly what I was looking for. It attaches to the side, very securely, and exactly fits my SB800 flash. It has a good Velcro closure. Makes getting to the flash very accessible. Front pocket provides enough space for batteries.

                                            the ONLY complaint, and not really against it is that is not 100% compatible with the lowepro belt. the back part that sticks into the belt is way too wide. you can use it but you won't like how it gets squeezed. other than that, great. The velcro is a little too noisy for weddings.

                                                  I got this to hold a new Nikon SB900. It's big enough to hold the SB900 (which is saying a lot, given the immense size of this speedlight), but still considerably smaller than Nikon's case that came with the SB900
