    Thank you, I just order one. Always is good to have a backup street bag for your gear.

    That's a stylish-looking little bag at a great price. I'm not finding a lot of info about it online, but there are a couple of positive reviews (both mention using it for mirrorless cameras) at B&H. It appears that perhaps the manufacturer has discontinued their camera bag line.

    I've already got too many bags sitting around, but even so I'm finding it hard to ignore this apparent bargain. Hopefully it sells out before I give in to the temptation.

    The strap looks really oddly placed and very uncomfortable and that flap looks like it would make it difficult to quickly swap lenses, etc. I know it is cheap, but for a few bucks more you can get bags with more functional designs.

    Hmm... I guess I must have looked when they were changing the price....

    Not sold out, but the price is $19.95 now

    It arrived yesterday. I don't think I would have been happy with it at $60 but I think it'll have its uses. Agree about the strap, but it's about the size of a shaving kit and I think it'll be good for my camera+zoom+20mm.

    Yup. Got mine too and I agree. It will have its uses. For others' reference, a G7 with a 100-300 will fit easily but doesn't leave much room for anything else.

    The factory divider is a fixed size. The first thing I did was to turn the bag inside out and carefully cut out the divider and its flaps completely. The interior of the bag is fuzzy enough to take standard Velcro camera bag dividers, so more flexibility.

    Wait a second, OR, how'd you get your hands on a G7 already?

    I'm under the impression, from the product demo video, that the divider is a "flex fold" system where you can slide the divider to suit your needs.

    I haven't figured how to slide it but it does fold out and fold into itself to adjust the size of the compartments. Overall it is a good quality bag with a weird strap and can hold my EM-10 with 25mm f1.4 attached along with a few other mid sized lenses and the battery charger.

    Well, it is either open/fixed size or collapsed and held against the end of the bag. When collapsed, it eats over an inch (measured) of bag space. Not a good idea IMO in a bag this small. But it's easy to cut out and I have ton of conventional dividers with Velcro tabs that provide more flexibility at a lower cost in bag space.
