    I am looking into buying lens pouches I can attach to my belt. I would like to use them to store my wide zoom and 24-70mm lens in them while shooting weddings.

    I would like to have the ones which are easy to access and open to change lens during wedding ceremonies, etc. when time is short.

    I know think tank sells some of them but I am wondering whether there are any under $20... I don't need fancy pouches.

    Can you recommend any?

    I use pouches and love them. I think mine are LowePro and Tamrac.

    Lowepro Street & Field cases are excellent. Their FS 10 case is perfect for a Seconic L-398 meter, or a Rollei 35 also

    Think Tank pouches and belt are outstanding.

    "Which is best for under $20", none of them, if you want the best you have to be prepared to pay for it, but I would think the best would be either Think Tank or Lowe pro.

    Depends on the size of your lenses. I have a couple little Op/Tech USA camera cases that fit Zuikos fine. Have also made some cases from water bottle carries. But after a number of years I've learned there are only a couple of lenses that ever get used.
