Warning: Lowepro plastic carabiners may destroy your camera
Jun 9, 2012

This is just a warning for anybody considering to buy a Lowepro holster bag with plastic carabiners. I just had one of these misconstructs come apart suddenly and without warning. The bag slipped from my shoulder and fell to the ground. Although I had extra padding in the bag, the UV filter on my lens broke and got stuck . The carabiner is by he way undamaged- it just came apart at the hinge. To be honest I already supected a decrease in durability when I saw Lowepro replacing their metal carabiners with plasic ones. I would not have thought though, that those carabiners are so poorly constructed that they just come apart without any abuse. So if you own one of these bags I advise you to replace the carabiners with metal ones or buy proper quality bags which come with decent buckles and carabiners
