Crush Drybag S and Nikon D200 w/35-70 zoom

The Crush Drybag size S just fits my Nikon D200 with a 35-70 2.8 zoom lens, including the lens hood. This particular combo is bulky enough that the velcro won't close completely on the foam pouch, but it still works. The outer sack (the waterproof part) will still go a full 3 rolls before clipping closed.

Remember: this is not a submersible bag. Roll-top closures are great in the rain and for protecting gear in wet environments, but they are not designed to be submerged. They are, however, great in the canoe or kayak for those items that need to be kept out of the splash or in a backpack on a rainy hike. The foam inner lining provides just enough shock resistance to protect phone, camera, video camera and the like when bouncing around with other gear.
