    Sturdy & roomy, don't like the zipper

    I bought this online after read overall very positive reviews, I needed it for a small Nikon camera to be brought on a 10-day bike trip in Netherlands. Have to say a little disappointed after picked it up at the store, it's slightly too big for a small point and shoot camera, also how the case is hooked onto the shoulder strap is strange, as a result the zipper end is constantly bouncing when walking, making unneeded noise. I also founf it difficult to open and close the case with just one hand while on the bike, always had to dismount the bike to shoot photos, to be fair this might have something to do with the sturdy build of the case. My husband really liked the case though, it easily accommodates a couple of small items such as credit cards, bills and coins, making it simple when go out for dinner.

    Hard Side Case Protects Electronics

    This case is very versatile and be used to protect pocket cameras, iPod Nanos, and other small electronic items. It has a hard cover on both sides and a layer of egg-crate foam inside one of the sides. This, combined with the small inner pocket, makes it possible to stow an iPod Nano or similar small item in its own small compartment and carry a charging adapter and USB-Lightning or USB-micro USB cable in the main compartment. Alternatively, a compact camera can be carried in the main compartment and an SD card can be stowed in the side pocket. A belt loop and a thin neck cord provide options for carrying outside a pack or pocket. A versatile, hard sided case for small items.

    I bought it for my Canon point-and-shoot digital camera and this fits the bill nicely. My priority was to have a case that was strong enough that my camera could ride around in a backpack without my having to worry about it getting damaged and I'm confident this will do that. This one is a bit more rigid than others at or near the same price point, which was what drew me to it in the expectation it will protect my camera a little better. Price seems reasonable for something I can run in to the store and grab immediately.

    The Santiago came with a semi hard shell case and good foam protectors inside. The pockets were good to hold extra memory cards. The case itself is compact enough to fit in your pants pocket. This compact size comes with a price though. The only reason I took away one star (should be half) was because the fit runs on the side of tight for my canon Powershot G7X. I would still highly recommend this case just make sure you are okay with the fit.

    After using a Nikon Coolpix case for a couple of years I finally took the time to shop around for a more versatile case that would provide belt loop or shoulder strap convenience as well as better protection for the camera. I just returned from a month long trip and this LowePro case proved to be exactly what I needed. Good value.

    TIGHT FIT BUT WELL MADE WITH GOOD PROTECTION

    Nice case but tight fit for my Canon PowerShot G7X Mark II. Camera fits but nothing else, zips closed fine without squeezing the camera in, no struggle involved. Therefore, this is a nice case that offers good protection for at least my camera only. Wish it was just a bit larger in order to accommodate an extra battery, etc.

    Bought as part of a larger purchase for my dad for his trip to Italy, this was a must-have to protect the camera I got him. It's very sturdy with the hard shell but it's somewhat smaller than expected; didn't know until we got home and put everything inside it. It would be nicer if slightly larger to include the spare battery we bought so everything is in one place for ease.

    NOT FOR CANON G7XII. I was advised in Best Buy that this case would hold my new Canon G7XII, but it absolutely did not, it was too small. The G7XII is too thick and the bag won't zip closed. It's a nice enough case, however, as long as you know your camera of choice will fit inside correctly.

    All of my cameras seem to only last a year so this time i made sure to search for the perfect case. This one is hard and extra protective on the outside and my fujifilm tough camera just fits. I do wish it was just a tiny bit bigger to fit my charger too but not a big deal its such a good price ill just get a second one for the charger ;)

    Super compact without compromising protection. Has a little interior pocket too that fits an extra battery as well as a credit card or ID that you could just throw in there if heading out. Love for use at Theme parks especially with the cross body strap so you don't have to worry about losing it. Excellent camera case for someone on the go.

    I picked this case up for a Sony camera (point and shoot) and it seems a little snug. No fault of the case, but I wish they would have had a size slightly larger. It seems as if it would survive a drop or a fair impact. I wouldn't expect that it would survive being run over by a car or anything. Good value.

    Great camera case but too thin front to back

    This is a great camera case. It is wider than most camera cases but is very thin in the front to back direction. I'll find a way to use it though because I have the Santiago 20 and I love that. They are both hard shell cases as opposed to pillow soft cases. They're great for my bicycle rides, which are tough duty for cameras anmd camera cases.

    My son talked me into getting this case for a few dollars more than the one he has for protection on my clumsiness. It seemed bulky at the store, but once I had it and took it on a trip I had to agree with my son. It stood the tests of falling a "few" times. :) I would buy this again.

    Recently bought a Cannon G9X and wanted to find a Cannon case to protect it when not in use. Couldn't find one from Cannon, so I bought the Lowellpro Santiago instead. Very well made and the semi rigid shell seems like it will offer good protection. Plus, the tan stitching matches the leather on my camera. Sweet!

    Did the job and stored all my stuff! Designed to accommodate most ultracompact point-and-shoot cameras, this Lowepro Santiago 20 II LP36856 case features FormShell technology, which provides a sturdy design with minimal bulk. The belt loop and shoulder strap offer flexible carrying options.

    I bought this case to hold my Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II...while the case is a little tight when full given the size of the camera, I can also fit in one extra battery and one extra memory card. I like the size of the case because it is small and enables me bring my camera along when I am on the go.

    The Canon Powershot fits perfectly in this case. Just needed it to protect the camera on the trails as we shot great pics at Grand Canyon, Turkey Run, Rocky Mountain National Park as well as others. It has been dropped and gotten wet several times, and it has done its job of protecting the camera.

    this case is exactly as you might expect. seems to offer good protection with reasonable bulk. nice and light weight. would like to see a little better water resistance. tbd on how it will hold up, doesn't exude confidence of lasting, but for the price very reasonable build.

    It is built pretty sturdy, the stitching are thick and he zippers are strong. It has an extra little net pocket on the inside (maybe for an extra SD card of a small battery) and nice soft and squishy padding to keep your device safe. The padding does take up a bit of space but its nice to have.

    I have used the case to hold my scosche rhythm plus arm heart rate monitor in my backpack because I needed a case that prevent my rhythm from turning on whenever I pull my backpack from tight locker. Which does what I needed to do. I like no more the rhythm automatically turn on.
