True-blue reviews on the latest items we've taken out on trail.
Lowepro Tasca 20 This neoprene camera case stands out from the competition because of its wide mouth and magnetic closure; the combination lets you slip your compact digicam in and out easily and quickly, so you won't miss a shot fumbling with buckles or Velcro. It's also less bulky and lighter than many other cases, but still plenty protective. "I like its low profile," said one tester. "It fits inside a pants pocket, or I could clip the mini-carabiner to my belt loop without feeling like I was wearing a big holster." $17; 1 oz.; interior dimensions: 3.1 by 0.5 by 4.9 inches. (707) 827-4000; lowepro.com.
