Hello all, I’m back with another quick review for you of a camera case made for compact cameras like the Fuji Finepix Z900EXR I recently reviewed. The Z900EXR is a great camera but that 3.5” touch screen needs some protection I think and Love Cases has sent me over one that I think does a great job at it. The case I have for review today is the Crumpler CC 55 Digital Compact Camera Case with Strap in a red and nickel color scheme. The case features padding for protection, a small inside pocket for accessories like batteries or memory cards and overall it’s well made.

Specifications:

Crumpler CC 55 Digital Compact Camera Case with Strap – Red / Nickel

This is the perfect case for your digital camera camera, it features a strong zip with special protection for super strong closing. The case its self is made from super soft, super stretchy, super strong, super shiny neoprene. There is a internal mesh pocket for storing memory cards or other small accessories. You can either use the provided color matched lanyard, the loop attachment or simply carry it in your pocket.

As with all Crumpler products this case comes with a 30 year guarantee direct from Crumpler. All bags are handmade and are subject to rigorous tests throughout the whole production process meaning Crumpler bags are as good quality as they are good looking.

So let’s get started, the case doesn’t come in a box, just a thick cardboard hang style backing with specs and features listed on it.

On the front of the case is the Crumpler logo and as I mentioned in the intro it’s red and what they’re calling a nickel color which looks like gray to me, but whatever, I think it looks good.

The back is just plain red, and as you can see there is a strap that comes attached to it. The specs say the case is made from neoprene, but it’s not like any neoprene I’ve seen. I think the specs are wrong actually as I did some research and the case is made from Crumplers own Chicken Tex Supreme fabric, which is a heavy duty weaved fabric that’s both tough and durable.

The case also features a heavy duty zipper with extra large pull for easy access.

The strap is thick as well, and it’s nice and long at about 18 inches in length. You can take it off if you want but it’s not exactly easy.

Inside you’ll find a gray colored lining that’s padded to protect your camera.

On the top is  a small padded pocket that’s big enough for a couple batteries and memory cards or a combination of both.

Here’s my camera with the CC55 bag:

My camera fits just perfect inside of the case, like it was made specifically for it really.

The Finepix uses small batteries so I can fit two of them in the pocket and still have room for a memory card or two or another battery.

Closing the case, the zipper doesn’t touch the camera thanks to the extra material inside of the case.

Conclusion:
The Crumpler CC 55 is one of the nicer camera cases I’ve had the chance to review. I’ve reviewed a few Crumpler brand cases and they are some of the best I’ve owned, I like them very much, they offer a lot of protection and they are very quality made.

The case is small but it does have a pocket to take extra batteries and memory cards with you so you can take it for the weekend or on a day trip and have enough power and storage for all that time.
