They have a few quite unique products. Living in SoCal, I don't like my back being wet. So, for many years I use Lowepro Inverse Beltpacks. My 500mm does not fit any bag anyway, so these waist bags how I call them are very convinient, holding easily extra DSLR and a couple medium sized lenses.
I also have MountainSmith larger modular beltpack unfortunately with less padding. So, my LowerPro 200 is almost always with me.

Greyser: What lens mount it is going to use? Original Zenit used to be compatible with Pentax 39mm first then 42x1K-mount.
I still have my 45 years old Zenit-M and Helios 44/2

It was not even K- mount bayonet, just M42x1mm screw mount first introduced by East German Zeiss and then adopted by Pentax and others.
I don't think Zenit has done any digital things, at least not in civilian applications.
And my camera what I mentioned above is not M, but Zenit-E (totally forgot in years)

On photo Red Tailed Hawk in the Best Wildlife Photo of the Week VI challenge (4 comments in total)

I have quite a few very good shots of ospreys in action. Once I even won a 1st place here with one of them. However, I never have had a chance to get hawks and owls hunting, unfortunately; just some images of them already eating.

On photo Just Fishing in the Pentax K Series challenge (9 comments in total)

For the last three years once in a year I was able to shoot and osprey catching a fish. However, I have witnessed many unsuccessful dives, false attempts, etc. The location is almost in a center of very populated urban area of Los Angeles. If someone from LA is interested I'll be happy to share it.
Thank you All for the comments

Philip Lanoue: Is this a wild or captive bird?

Sorry for getting back to you so late. Yes it was a captive bird (how else a wild bird would be photographed that close at 250mm otherwise?). However, I travelled to Denali, Alaska to get this shot.
There is an old thread about it: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/41979305
Thank you for the comment,

The Mick: What kind of flower is that? Nice title, BTW.

You are absolutely right. It is Flame Lily. I shot it about a month ago in Penang Botanical Garden. Malaysia. Thank you for your interest.

It is Lady Baltimore. The captivity bird from the Mt. Roberts shelter in Juneau, AK. Am I right? She was shot in a beak and an eye. I have a nice close ups of her too.

Brilliant! It lacks composition and technical quality due to P&S camera, but still brilliant :-)
