The Vivitar 300mm f/5.6 lens that acquired didn’t have a lens case or pouch and it is slightly too long to comfortably fit in my camera bag. To protect the lens better and to avoid simply wrapping it in a shirt and throwing it in a backpack I made a custom pouch for the lens.
I went to my local crafts supply store and purchased some fleece fabric, a yard of draw string and a draw string clamp. Some cutting and sewing later and I have a double thickness fleece lens pouch. The pouch should provide some much needed protection against bumps and scratching.
I will likely make custom lens pouches for most of my lenses over time, especially for ones that don’t come with a lens case and/or won’t fit in my camera bag easily.
