We have taken a look at quite a few Lowepro bags, but they have been mostly larger camera / notebook bags. Today we are going to be taking a look at a smaller bag, it's more of a pouch really. Even though it is a pouch-type bag it can stall carry your D-SLR camera and a few accessories. Lowepro makes some of the best camera bags out there so the Cirrus TLZ 25 shouldn't be any different. Read on to see how we liked it...
Designed for today's pro-compact and compact digital cameras, the Cirrus Series easily protects both camera and lens from the outside elements. The interior features a memory card pocket for quick changes and brushed tricot lining protect LCD screen and lens from abrasion. The exterior of the bags are built with a tough water and abrasion resistant fabric and can be attached through either a belt-loop or with an included shoulder-strap. This lightweight and compact top-loading bag provides digital camera users with solid protection and fast access to capture those spontaneous moments.

The Cirrus TLZ 25 is the largest out of the Cirrus TLZ series. There is a Cirrus TLZ 15 and a TLZ 5. The TLZ 5 is a smaller bag made for point and shoot cameras and the TLZ 15 is just a little bit smaller than the TLZ 25, which will fit a D-SLR camera with a small lens. The Cirrus TLZ series comes in 2 different colors Black / Grey and Aquamarine Blue, we received the Black / Grey version.
The Cirrus TLZ 25 is a top-loading bag so it is larger at the top and smaller towards the bottom. As I said it is designed for a D-SLR camera with a small lens so it is placed down into the bag. The exterior of the bag is built with the tough water and abrasion resistant fabric. There really is not much to the bag, on the front there is a small Lowepro logo and on the back there is a belt loop that will allow you to easily attach the Cirrus TLZ 25 to your belt.
Besides the belt loop there are 2 other ways that you can carry the Cirrus TLZ 25. You have a handle on the top of the bag and there is an included shoulder strap. The bag opens by way of a zipper at the top. The inside is just 1 big pouch. The interior is made of a of brushed tricot lining to protect you lens and LCD screen from abrasion. On the lid of the bag there is a small compartment where you can put a lens cap or memory card.
