I use this product to hold three 77mm Filters.

I like the idea of this unit and will find a better one. It is really compact when stowed away, and it does function. This thing can barely accommodate 77mm filters. It just barely closes with its velcro as is, couldn't imagine any larger filters in it. I knew it was a cheap unit when I purchased it. I purchased it on a whim. The three filters in this case cost me nearly $$$, it would have been wiser to buy a better pouch. I use the foam inserts that came with the filters to pad the filters better than the pouch provides. The filters can also get scratched in here, which you can easily see by looking at the photo and thinking about its intended use for a second.

I can't complain too much because I didn't scrutinize it prior to purchase, it does hold filters, and it cost very little money. I recommend putting the few dollars spent on this pouch towards a higher quality pouch that protects the filters better. I"m sure it exists.

      This filter case holds my filters nicely and compactly. I have a mixture of 77 mm and 82 mm filters.

              Just started using a lens that needed a larger filter. This fits the bill to protect the new filter and fit in the bag without making such a huge bump. Price was right too.

                  The hard plastic cases filter come in tend to rattle even inside a pocket or camera bag. This is much quieter and gives plenty of protection.

                      I got tired of keeping filters in the plastic cases they ship in. Never really thought about it until I nearly lose on on location. Fits all my 77mm filters even with wrapping them in a one-fold of lens cloth for extra protection.

                      The only thing I wish it has was a hook or belt loop for quick access. Having to retrieve from my bag is a minor inconvenience when on the run. Though, the material is tough enough that I may just sew one on myself. Good buy!

                        This product is smaller that the product description suggests. Not for use with filters over 77mm. Too easy to scratch adjoining filters in the package.

                        I haven't really used it yet. I have a had time taking my ND filters out of the hard plastic cases they came in and putting them in a pouch...Maybe one day I'll use it. Seems pretty solid.

                          The product description is deceptive, if you think it will fit 2 x 82mm, and 2 x 77mm filter at the same time then you will be disappointed. It does fit 4x 77mm filters, if you close it properly. However, the mesh pockets are not super protective, so I wouldn't risk my expensive ND filters in this pouch. I am keeping the item as it's fine for organising my step-up rings, and Xume quick release adapters that I purchased for my 77mm lenses.

                          If you have a few filters, you need this, it's a no brainer. It makes it much easier switching out filters.

                              Purchased online and assumed that since it fits up to 82mm fiIters, that fitting my 77mm filters would be pretty easy. Found that once my filters were in, closing the case proved difficult. The velcro closure wouldn't meet. Had my husband try as well. Took it back to the store and they exchanged it for me with no issue. Bought a different brand which fits my filters just fine.

                                Just as described, this filter 'wallet' does a nice job of keeping your most commonly used filters safe & all together in an easily accessed space. I've found its best to store this against my computer as it provides as strong, supportive surface for the length of the case.

                                    Perfect for 82mm filters. It seems durable and the price is very good.
