    Arco AP-FZH5B reviews

    Portable Pouch for Zoom H5 Handy Recorder is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good if you get in a deal I bought this as part of a BH deal pack for $9. For $9 it does the job of protecting the H5 from the elements and allows access to the controls. Its construction is pretty basic and does what it says on the box. As others have pointed out it needs something to hold back the lid when in use .. but easily fixed with some adhesive velcro (even though you shouldn't have to). It wouldn't offer any protection if you dropped your H5, its purely a dust and rain cover. Good for $9 but I wouldn't have wanted to pay any more.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from useful I work alone capturing video with two cameras (one fixed and one mobile) and I need to monitor the audio. And when there are a lot of starts and stops on the rec button, it's easy to lose something. This accessory allows the H5 to always be with me without needing me to be with the camera. The only negative thing is that it does not fit perfectly to the material / construction type, but it works well overall.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the purchase This pouch is great and holds up well while doing any kind of field recording. The ability to change it from a belt clip to a neck strap gives this high usability. There are also four clip loops on the backside, so if there is a specific way you would like to hold it, you can more than likely do it. Lifting the plastic cover (if the attachment is not on) gives easy access to the recording buttons and knobs. Cost is well worth it and it is easily repairable, if the green bungee snaps for some reason. The only complaints that I have for it are that: 1 - The straps that are behind the clear plastic cover partially block the cover from attaching properly (not much of an issue for me), but can be worked around. 2 - The bungee cord on the sides that hold it together do partially block the power switch, volume control, menu, and menu navigator. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this for the ZOOM H5.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Hands-free Recording I used this with my Zoom H5, hanging upside from my neck so I could easily see and use the controls while booming. It was also used with a Tascam DR-100 which is about the same size and fit snugly, so that was a nice bonus.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks nice, but the fitting could be allot better Looks nice, but the fitting could be allot better, also the top folding part that has no place to stow it away during use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Exceptionally Well; I Can't Complain. The pouch's sturdy fabric is still easy to slide a zoom into. Its clips and straps all come off and on with ease while being incredibly reliable. The green bungie-cord-type weaving makes for really, really good access to the switches and inputs. They don't get in the way for headphones coming in on the side or XLR's from the bottom. I've spent hours with this on set already, and it really does feel natural within minutes. I went ahead and took off my X/Y mic (no need to risk having more money on my waist) and covered its port with electrical tape out of paranoia (plastic cover wouldn't stop debris coming from the sides), but can imagine leaving it on without a fuss. Everything fits as you'd expect a pouch specifically designed for this recorder would. Changing batteries hardly takes more time than it should. Cords come out, velcro gets loosened, Zoom slides out, battery change, and zoom goes back in along with cords again. It almost takes more time for the Zoom to access the SD card while booting. Keeping an eye on your levels isn't hard to do should you have a free hand. The pouch is more than able to be tilted in any which-way and the Zoom's interface is clear enough to read upside-down. Knobs, as with everything, are easy to reach without looking. Pouch does not rattle nor shake (at least in such a way that creates artifacts). Really would recommend for anyone boom opping and mixing with the Zoom H5.
