Shimoda Designs Top Loader Overview

This black Shimoda Designs Top Loader is a versatile, multiuse holster case that can accommodate a medium-sized DSLR or mirrorless camera with an attached 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. Alternatively, the Top Loader can expand to accommodate a medium-sized DSLR or mirrorless camera with an attached 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, and a removable divider allows this holster case to be configured for a small drone kit.

The Top Loader includes a variety of built-in carrying options, including a top handle, a shoulder strap, and a belt loop. Using two pairs of separately available Shimoda Designs Accessory Webbing Straps, the Top Loader features the ability to be mounted onto the backpack straps of a separately available Shimoda Designs Action X30, X50, or X70 backpack for use as a chest harness. The Top Loader can also be looped onto the detachable waist belt of an Action X30, X50, or X70 backpack. When used only with the detachable waist belt, the Top Loader functions as a lightweight day bag.

A zippered side-access panel enables the Top Loader to serve as a fully compatible core unit inside an Action X30 or X50 backpack. As a core unit, the Top Loader enhances the ability to organize a compatible backpack's contents. When inside an Action X30 or X50 backpack and aligned with the backpack's own zippered side opening, seamless accessibility to the equipment inside the Top Loader is provided when the backpack is rotated from one's back to front with the backpack's right side facing upward.

Featuring a durable, nylon construction, the Top Loader is built to be weather resistant.

Very functional and versatile storage. I'm using it for my Sony, second camera with 70-200 lens . Love it. Everything from Shimoda is well thought. And quality is top notch.

This solves a lot of my needs. I wanted a small bag that could fit my Sony full frame with small lenses and also a 100-400. This tiny bag does it all for me! :)

Great bag with a fatal flaw

The bag is nice and works well. The zippers aren't water sealed though. For the price and the outdoor marketing I expected water proof zippers. It also doesn't include a rain cover so I wouldn't trust it to get wet. Otherwise works great and is the perfect size to slip into another bag.

just Amazing!!!!

This top loader is amazing!!! It can fit my camera with short or long lenses. It also can fit in the belt of my Shimoda backpack perfectly but I'm sure it would fit any belt!!! Its a great extra for use with a bag or if you only want to carry one lens! Its tough and it protects the camera as in should!

Great quality

It works great. I put it on my kid backpack to hold my camera while hiking and it works great. Get some extra straps!

What I needed for a single lens shoot. Room for longer lens. Expandable pocket means you can fit some odds and ends inside also, like some lens cleaning items or your phone. Lovely design and aesthetics.
