The Lens Cases’ new features are:

  • One-hand drawstring closure with the auto-locking mechanism: only one hand is needed to securely close the pouch.
  • Zippered bottom pocket includes seam-sealed rain cover.
  • Top handle allows for easy gathering of multiple pouches.

The Gear Pouches include the same new features as the Lens Cases, as well as:
