handlebar bags for DSLR's?

(1/2) > >>

denver_whitest185:
i was wondering if anyone had any opinions on a good handlebar bag that's just big enough to carry a DSLR camera with a normal sized lens on it (Pentax K100D w/ PENTAX-DA 18-55mm lens)? the only camera bag I've found is the Sunlite camera sport bag, and i can't find a photo of the inner compartment anywhere on the internet.

Im wanting one kinda quickly so i can use it on a ride in two weeks...

Ortlieb bags have optional camera inserts. Call Wayne at The Touring Store and discuss your needs. He'll fix you up quickly.

I emailed him, and funny thing is that his place is only a few miles from where i live in fort collins, CO. That's perfect cause then i can go try it out and see how it fits on my bike. Thanks for the recommendation.

Hi Ted,

I can give a hearty second to both Wayne and Ortlieb handlebar bags. I bought Ortlieb panniers and all three sizes of their handlebar bags. Wayne was great to work with.

I also got the camera pad insert which fits both the medium and large Ultimate 5 which carry a Nikon D70 in it with room to spare. I use the compact size for short trips around town. They all use the same mount so switching them is easy. Having all three bags works out well because my wife and I both use them and when we ride together, we normally want different sized bags.
