SX-64 – Original

For lugging the SX-64 around, this might be the best choice as a carry bag, the ORTLIEB’s robust classic Messenger Bag. According to Ortlieb’s specification the SX-64 (37cm X 37cm X 13cm) fits perfectly in to the bag (50cm X 39cm X 15.5 cm), even leaving some room for padding. ;-)
