MYOG – padded camera bag

I normally carry my camera (Panasonic Lumix TZ5) in the Exped XXS dry bag. I usually trap a bit of extra air so there’s some cushioning. However, here’s a really simple way of converting the dry bag into a padded dry bag and giving a camera a bit of added protection.

Cut an oblong from a piece of spare foam. I used an old sleeping mat.


Fold it into a “U” shape and insert into the dry bag.


Insert camera and seal.


Hey presto! A padded and waterproof camera bag.

  1. Very nice idea! I’ll try that, but I’ll go with one of the Sea and Summit bags as I’ve found them more reliable than the Expeds.
