Mountainsmith products are well made with top quality materials. This case has rigid form on the outside and it back is firm plastic. It is not "bomb proof", but provides enough protection I can feel secure when taking lenses on vacation. Small prime lenses will need added packing to avoid rattling around, though I was able to get both the Nikon 35 1.8 & Nikon 50 1.8 into it (snuggly). . I have been able to get the following lenses in it: Tokina 12-24, Tokina 100, Nikon 18-55, Nikon 18-70, Nikon 18-200 and hood (reversed). My Nikon 70-300 VR was too big, but the 70-300 nonVR fit (also snuggly).

This case seems to be well made. It is semi rigid with stiff padding on the inside which makes he lens is easy to get in and out of the case. The outside is well made with a robust attachment point for adding it to another camera bag or on a belt.

Protects lens and does the job well. The inside was a little roomier than I expected, so I needed to add extra padding inside to keep my lenses from rattling around. I use a Pentax K-30 with various consumer/prosumer grade lenses (no DA* lenses), so most of my lenses tend to be smaller than other manufacturers. I use it to store 2 prime lenses (DA35 ltd and DA15 ltd coupled on an OpTech dual cap holder for example) and it works fine -- slightly overkill, as the case is bigger than the length and diameter of the lenses), but does what I need. Offers good protection. If you're using it to hold lenses inside another bag, it may be too much though, and a smaller option may be the way to go.
