I recently picked up a Sony QX10 lens camera. The price had dropped $50 and, now that I am using a Sony Xperia Z2 I figured it made sense. I also went in search of a good way to protect the camera. The Op/Tech USA Fold-Over Pouch 301 seemed like a good option. Let’s take a look.At just $11 picking up one of the fold-over pouches was a no-brainer.

To use the fold-over pouch you simply place the camera inside and fit the second, slightly larger piece, over it. Once that is done the cover stays put and your camera remains protected. There are no hard edges that might scratch your camera and no zippers or snaps you might accidentally leave open. It simply works and… it works simply.

The case is a simple, affordable and convenient way to protect the Sony QX10. It isn’t all that refined but it doesn’t have to be. It gets the job done and, as an added bonus, it is made in the USA.
