Lowepro Cirrus TLZ 25 camera bag review

The Lowepro Cirrus TLZ 25 is well-padded and the interior of the bag features a soft brushed tricot lining to protect your camera's LCD screen and lens from abrasion. The top lid has a small Velcro-sealed pouch, this pocket is mainly designed for memory cards.

Inside the bag are Velcro support braces, which can aid to support your dSLR camera.

I tested the bag with my Canon EOS 450D with the standard EF-S 18-55mm IS and EF-S 55-250mm lenses from Canon attached. The Cirrus TLZ 25 provides a great fit and easy access to the camera.

While the bag is only designed for a digital SLR camera with a short zoom lens attached, I found out it was possible to take both lenses with me. When the EF-S 18-55mm IS lens is attached to the camera, there's just enough room above the camera for the 55-250mm IS lens.

Whether the Lowepro Cirrus TLZ 25 is the right camera bag for you depends on what your plans are. If you want a compact bag for your dSLR camera, an extra battery, some memory cards and small accessories the Cirrus TLZ 25 will perfectly suit your needs. The Cirrus TLZ 25 offers a snug fit and good padding & protection for a consumer dSLR with a short/medium-sized zoom lens attached but there isn't a lot of room for anything else.

So if you want to carry several lenses with you along with accessories like a battery pack and/or a hotshoe flash it would be a wise idea to shop for a bigger camera bag. The pricing of this bag is pretty attractive, I picked it up a couple of months ago for 19.95EUR, in the US the price seems to be around $30.

The Good Stuff
  • Snug fit
  • Offers good protection for your dSLR
  • Attractive price
  • Good looking design
  • Light-weight

    The Bad Stuff
  • Shoulder strap has no padding

    I award the Lowepro Cirrus TLZ 25 with a 9/10 and our Seal of Approval.
