I had been looking at the Zing pouches for a long time and I finally decided to purchase this one for my Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens. My 85mm and 100mm lenses fit in it also, so now I have to buy two more. It is well-constructed, has plenty of padding, and the drawstring is not some cheap thread. For the price this is an excellent product. If you don't have a lot of room in your camera bag, this may not be the pouch for you. There are thinner pouches out there, but if you travel a lot like I do, you want something to protect your lenses.

Much more padding than Manufacturers bags

By Nolajoe

Comments about SPB1 Small Drawstring Pouch (Black/Purple):

The lens bags that come with lenses have almost no padding. This padded bag gives a lot more protection and has a lock on the drawstrings. Also, the different colors available for the top of the bag help to tell lenses apart.

Comments about SPB1 Small Drawstring Pouch (Black/Blue):

This is my second Zing pouch. I use these in a non-photo waist pack to carry my prime lenses. Product is made from a fairly heavy material that offers good protection.

        Comments about SPB1 Small Drawstring Pouch (Black/Purple):

        These bags are perfect for tossing a lens into the back of a small backpack. They come in several sizes. This one, the smallest, is still a little big for a couple of the lenses I use them with (Sony NEX-7 pancake lens, for example), but does a great job protecting whatever goes into it.
        The little clip on the side can be fastened to your belt, or to an external pack strap. Very useful.

          Comments about SPB1 Small Drawstring Pouch (Black/Blue):

          It can fit Canon 85mm 1.8/f without problem. It is easily accessible and good for quick change of lens.
          The plastic lock may look a bit shaky but it is tough enough to hold the weight of a small lens.
          The pouch material feels good enough to protect from minor impact.
          So in summary it is a good, light, handy pouch for small lens.

                Love these little lens cases for easy, on-the-go photography. I usually put my lens in these cases and then into a bag with extra support. These are definitely more cushion than a simple lens cloth that you might fold around a lens and have a good string and fixed attachment to close tight. Highly recommended!

                      This makes storing my Pocket Wizards or any small cables easy. The materials is thick enough to protect small items when this little pouch is packed in a camera bag.

                        I had been looking at the Zing pouches for a long time and I finally decided to purchase this one for my Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens. My 85mm and 100mm lenses fit in it also, so now I have to buy two more. It is well-constructed, has plenty of padding, and the drawstring is not some cheap thread.

                        This is a nice pouch to protect equipment when on the go. As a professional in the field I use a number of them. They do a good job for the cost however I would rather pay a dollar or two more and get a quality clip on it. I cut the plastic hard to use clip off and go to [...] and color matching D-Clips to replace them. [...]

                          This pouch is just the right size for my micro lens and my wide angle lens. The fabric is stretchy and feels slightly padded to provided protection. I also like the way the drawstring is constructed - it stays put in position, and has a hook for carrying separately outside of your camera bag. The color coding helps you grab the right lens.

                              Just as advertised: a soft pouch for lenses or accessories. Obviously it's not as protective as something with a hard case; but to keep lenses from getting scratched, etc. it works very well. Now, I've only had it for a few days so I can't say how sturdy it is or how well it'll hold up over time. But it feels solid enough.
