The key to a good changing bag is pretty simple - it's got to be dark inside. This one is....

Good stuff: The double zipper and elastic armbands keep the light out! And the bag is roomy. When I'm inside changing film from camera to little developer basket (whatever it's called...) there's a lot of stuff when you figure in my 2 arms and a bunch of fingers. And yet it's small enough to stuff into a suitcase (won't fit into my fiddle case however - I guess there are limits).

Not so good stuff: Hmm.... I think it would be pretty in various colors other than black. Beyond that it's pretty much the cat's pjs....

I just had 50 sheets of 4x5 film destroyed thanks to this bag. It works ok if you use it in darkness, but if you try to change film in the shade or under a room light, expect to have your film fogged. Not recommended.

Fits the Bill

Comments about Kalt Large Changing Bag Double Zipper (27 x 30"):

Does what it aims to do - creates a portable darkroom around your arms. Plenty of room for film, canister opener, tank, and scissors. It can be tight when cutting the film leader - I get a little nervous that I might snip the bag, but haven't yet.

                    Comments about Kalt Large Changing Bag Double Zipper (27 x 30"):

                    The bag is poorly made. There are tiny, long and short, detached threads from the edge of the fabric. I've used the bag to load 10+ rolls of films. The threads have caught on the films multiple times when the films were loaded into developing spools. As a result, I have several rolls of films with damaged frames. The threads on the surface of the film blocked the development. Of course you can only know this after the films are developed.The bag does not breath. After 10 min. in the bag the bag interior becomes steaming hell. Very uncomfortable.

                    Does the job. I had to mend with thread and needle the bag's inside by its "armpits" for both sides. Kind of annoying that the construction in that specific area is so faulty.

                        Light tight and roomy and it does what it is supposed to do. Elastic is a bit tight on my arms, but not a big deal. I wish the zippers were a bit more beefy, they get caught up in the material flap which could be a bit thicker. Overall an excellent item.

                          Very well manufactured. With two zippers. It works perfect.

                          Only can say that if you delay so much the operation it turns a little hot into the cloth because there is no transpiration.

                            When I developed film 20 years ago, I had a darkroom. After getting back into medium format, I scan my negs and have no darkroom. Enter this bag. Everything fits nicely into it. I've got big arms, so the bands hold me tight and I am confident of its lightproof nature. Plus if you think about dust and critter hair (sweat drops? sneezes?) this thing is totally worth it. You'll never drop something and have it roll away in the dark again.

                              These are great for loading film onto reels and into the tank for processing. I'm using a Paterson two-reel tank (for 35mm) and had more than enough room for the tank, two reels, scissors, tank cover, and film. Could have held even more comfortably.

                              It did the trick in keeping light out which is, of course, the most important factor!

                                  I've been using this to change 4x5 film holders in the field. The bag seems like fair enough quality for the price, but the wrist bands are too large for my (admittedly very small) wrists - I've been putting on a bulky jacket and pulling the wrist bands up past my elbows to make sure it's a tight seal. I've also been careful to only use it in situations that are pretty dark anyway, so I can't speak to how light-tight the bag is in broad daylight. However. It seems great for the price, and is large enough to change a whole bunch of film holders at a time.

                                    Cheap, durable, easy to fold up and stow, double zippers and tight wrist cuffs make it completely light tight, haven't fogged a film with it yet. Thumbs up!

                                      What I like the most, is that the inner bag fabric is not as sticky as the old one I used to have.

                                            Perfect size for large camera film changing.The quality is waaaaay better than the [*] "house brand" garbage.If I ever need another, it'll be this one.
