I used this case for my Panasonic V100K camcorder on hiking trips. I didn't use the cross-body strap or the belt loop. I simply used a caribiner to clip it to my backpack. The camcorder fit snugly in the case even using the extended life battery. It was easy to access the camcorder quickly when necessary. The internal pocket doesn't close securely with a zipper or velcro so I couldn't use it for memory cards, etc. because they would fall out if I opened the bag in anything but an upright position. Also the belt loop is stitched at both ends which makes it less convenient to get it on and off your belt. I would prefer velcro at one end. But for the price, I'm satisfied and would recommend the bag. The camcorder would have taken a beating without it!
