Lowepro Quick Case 100 & 120 Bags Handling

Both bags are just about identical, the main differences being size, with the larger 120 model having a microfibre cloth stored in an internal pocket. The Quick Case 100 fits most ultra-zoom, compact interchangeable lens, micro four-thirds or mirrorless cameras. The Quick Case 120 fits DSLR's with an 18-55mm lens.

The bags are very easy to open with two magnets keeping the camera firmly closed while allowing extremely quick access to your camera. The leash can be attached to either your camera or your belt loop. The zippered pockets are a little fiddly if you have large fingers with the meshed area ideally placed to keep your lens cap safe and secure.

Lowepro Quick Case 100 & 120 Bags Performance

When the camera is in the bag it feels safe and secure. It is best used with your camera strap around your neck and tethered via the leash. This way you can open the bag without worrying about the either the camera or the bag falling to the floor. The bags are great if you don't want to carry more than one lens and spare cards and/or batteries.

Value for money

The Quick Case 100 is available for £24.95 and the 120 will set you back £29.95. This is fairly reasonable for a camera bag of this quality. Have a look at our complete guide to camera bags for more ideas of what's available.

Lowepro Quick Case 100 & 120 Bags Verdict

The bags do exactly what they are designed to do - offer quick access to your camera. The main issue with the bags are that you are limited to a particular lens, anything bigger than the recommended lens isn't going to fit, anything smaller will rattle around the bag. But if you are happy with simply carrying your camera with its kit lens and a few small accessories it is ideal.
