      I inspect construction sites. This hard case protects my Nikon perfectly. It has a heavy stitched belt loop that I assure you will not tear loose. My favorite feature is a built in pocket to keep the camera from sliding out sideways, even if I leave the case unzipped. Also has a small loop stitched into the top where I can attach a retractable to my camera. Tuff case, well designed. Buy one!

      This case is well made and very durable. The outside is firm enough to keep it's shape even when put under significant pressure. I wanted to use it as a holder for my camera, ID, and credit cards while traveling. Sadly, it was too large for my camera (Sony RX100) and my pocket. It was uncomfortable and bulky. Eventually I ditched the case in favor of a wallet and camera wrapped in a cloth sunglasses case. I would buy from this manufacturer again, however, I would not buy this case as it was too large for my needs.

      Handy, protective camera case

      By ESL teacher

      from Greenville, SC

      Comments about Ruggard HFV-230 Protective Camera Case:

      The case is stiff enough to provide protection from blows, and the double zipper gives easy access. The neck strap is easily removable when I want to wear the case on my belt instead. I'm very happy with my purchase.

          Comments about Ruggard HFV-230 Protective Camera Case:

          I purchased this case for a three month trip to southern Mexico and Guatemala to protect a point-and-shoot camera. I never had a single problem with the camera as the case provided excellent protection. The case was light enough to comfortably rest in my pocket but sturdy enough to protect the often-fragile lens of the point-and-shoot. It soldiered through all sorts of weather and climatic difficulties as well as the rigors of travel. Certainly no cons that I could find in 3 months of daily travails.

              I am not impressed with this case. It was sold with the Sony RX100 by B&H even though the case is much too tight to safely accommodate the camera.

              Fits my Sony RX100M2 very well, though a little tight. However, what's with the zipper closures? The two zippers seem out of sync so end up just using one to run all the way around instead of being able to zip one down each side.

                  I received this product for free from B&H with the purchase of my camera, a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II Digital Camera. The case fits the camera, but just barely. I do like that there is a little pocket to store an extra memory card, but I wish it was big enough to hold the extra battery I have as well.

                            Works reasonably well. Semi rigid case offers decent protection for the camera inside. There isn't really any padding inside though. After a few months of use the belt loop looks to have a stitch popped.
                            It does seem to protect the camera though. I have smacked the case into doorknobs a few times while wearing it on my belt. My camera is undamaged.

                                    Fits the Sony RX100 II just about perfect.

                                    One negative for me is the little compartment inside which probably intended for a spare battery or memory card is not that secure. When I unzip the case to get the camera out, there's been a few times that the battery and spare SD card have slipped out and dropped on the ground. Luckily I noticed it but can imagine I could easily lose stuff. For this reason, I'd probably not recommend this case.

                                        The case seems it will do a good job protecting my camera, but the first time the loop for connecting the lanyard saw any stress it failed. The lanyard can still be tied to the belt loop which appears stronger. I can't complain much because B&H threw it in for free with my camera purchase.

                                          B&H helpfully bundled this case with my Sony DSC-RX100 II camera. That saved me figuring out which cases fit the camera. In fact it can hold the camera with Sony's grip accessory attached, which together won't fit into Sony's own case. This case is sturdy, protective, and makes me feel like a casual traveler rather than a target with my DSLR bag. It has a belt loop and a neck strap. What more could you want?

                                            Small, yet Strong case that came with my Sony RX100, however it's too small to carry the camera with battery and cords (to charge and download pictures). If it was bigger, I'd give it 5 stars!

                                              i keep my Canon S100 at my side all the time. Unlike the form-fitting case this one replaces, the zipper is robust, and there is room in the case for both the camera's wrist loop and an extra battery. The case comes with a neck strap, which I would describe as sturdy and a good length, if I used neck straps. The belt loop is also sturdy.

                                                  This case is simply perfect for my RX100M2. It fits the camera perfectly without any effort. You can add 2 extra memory cards and a X battery (without the casing) and the case will close.Very sturdy and well build case that will protect your camera from falls and hits.100% recommended to all RX100M2 owners.

                                                  I received the Ruggard HFV-230 as part of the bundle when I purchased my Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II. I like its ruggedness and I think it will protect the camera well. However, there is no room inside for a spare battery. And, if you read the reviews of the DSC-RX100 (original or Model II) you know that one battery is not enough for a days shoot. It would be better if the case had room for a spare NP-BX1 battery.
                                                  I like the double zipper.
