The Paterson Changing Bag is an essential piece of equipment that any photographer should keep in a darkroom. It is one of the most simple items to use and can potentially save you from losing a roll of jammed film stuck inside a camera.

Paterson PTP125 Reviews
could be a little larger, but very useable
I load my 120 film into the jobo tanks with too much problems, could be a little bit bigger, but it gets the job done when you figure out where to put things into it before using.
When you need to change film...
It's nice and roomy, could put a bunch of holders and film in the bag at the same time. Not as nice as changing in a darkroom but if you have to, this is certainly a reliable way to go. I saw some grumbling about how tight the sleeves are, they are quite snug but not overly so (I'm average build), but am glad they are snug to to prevent light leaks.
Bag is dense and well made. Very secure. Arm holes are right at first and it definitely makes me feel confident that no light is getting through.
Worth the extra money. Better fit, thicker fabric, higher quality than the cheaper ones.
Good size and easy to use
There's plenty of space inside to load a roll of 120 on a Paterson tank, and it's still possible to use it on a regular desk. Build quality seems very good, though I can't comment on the durability. The elastic is very snug, which is reassuring; I only pull it up to the forearms. It seems to be perfectly light tight, as you'd expect, but I still use it in subdued light.
As some others reported, the elastic is quite snug, but I didn't try to push it up past my wrists and it worked fine. I'd rather have it tight and I expect it may loosen a bit over time. The bag is quite large, really much larger than I expected and certainly plenty of room for the tank and everything else to get spread out.
Does everything it should.
Quality fabrication and very fonctionnal. I would recommend to anyone who doesn't have a dark room.
Paterson = quality
Well made and a nice size for loading the developing tank, the bulk film loader and the 4x5 film holders.
