Advantages: Sturdy, Lightweight, Comfortable
Disadvantages: A Little Cramped
The Lowepro Rezo TLZ 20 is a great little camera bag which comes in a standard black colour with grey inner trim and a wide black shoulder strap for carrying. I chose this brand when purchasing my camera as I was aware how reputable Lowepro products were in the photography industry. It is particularly useful should you only need to carry a single digital SLR camera with a standard size lens and mine has been useful for carrying my Nikon D3000 around with me, however it has to be said that it is a tight fit. A key benefit of this bag is using it as hand luggage for your camera when travelling or catching a flight as it offers protection whilst taking up minimal space in hand luggage.
Price and Comfort
This camera bag is reasonably priced, and I got mine as part of a package with the camera for £17. In addition it is very comfortable to wear. Being that it is small in size the bag is relatively light even when housed and the wide strap means that it does not cut into your shoulders as other bags do, a feature which I find really handy when wearing strappy tops on hot holidays abroad.
Practicality and Protection
The bag is great for housing a single camera however the space inside limits this to just that. However there is a zipped up storage pocket at the front of the bag which is very useful for taking a spare memory card or a lens filter with you. The bag offers the camera a good deal of protection. The fabric is water resistant and therefore you are rest assured when the weather changes. Inside the bag has soft padding which means that the camera is kept free from scratch or other damage. In addition the inside of the bag contains a Velcro strap which means that the camera can be 'strapped in' at all times, particularly useful when moving around or travelling.
The fabric of the bag is of a high quality with a hardy finish that prevents damage when bumping around. However the flap of the bag is fastened by a plastic buckle. Whilst this buckle is useful for securing the flap it is not the best quality and I have found it difficult at times to fasten, especially when in a hurry.
To surmise, although this is a great bag for housing a singular camera and lens it is just that and is therefore not useful should you require a longer lens on shoot.

Summary: A good quality small camera case
