Any recommendations/suggestions for a filter wallet, for Cokin P type. I have a cheap one from 7dayshop but the label on the filter is migrating to the plastic pocket. The filters are a tight fit so don't think I could get a lining paper inside the pocket as well as the filter. Thanks in advance

I disposed of my "cheap one" last year and replaced it with a Cokin P306 - it's quite expensive for what it is, but my Hitech 85's fit nicely and are well protected. It is a little on the bulky side, but you can just chuck it into a camera bag accessory pocket (if it's a fair sized bag) or can attach it to a bag strap or belt!

I think WEX is one of the cheaper places at the moment, or alternatively Ebay has some cheap copies

I've got the Cokin P306, with the Cokin logo, but an eBay search for "Cokin P filter wallet" brings up a bunch of cheaper ones that look identical, apart from the absence of a Cokin logo. Mine has a shoulder strap, unlike the £28 "genuine" Cokin one you'll find under this search. A couple of the unbranded ones, at under £8, have a strap. The quality of materials may be different but, from the photo, they could all have come out of the same factory. They can be a little tight if you put in the filter holder (but where else would you keep it?)

A camera fair will yield lots of options from the days when Cokin was the thing to buy, maybe from 50p upwards.
Best regards, John

Will check the ads for fairs in the magazines etc. Don't recall hearing of such an event in this part of the world. The way the weather is not too many car boot sales either

I bought the Cokin p306 about £20, and complete with waterproof cover, fits onto a belt or comes with a shoulder strap.
I also looked at the Lowepro filter holder, cant remember the stock no but just google Lowepro filter holder and you will find it, found this to be larger than i required.

Just read in an old thread (ephotozine 2005)someone uses a CD wallet. I'm sure I have an old one lying about will dig it out and see what it looks like

I use this, quite bulky, Lowepro one link but I think they also do one that might hold the Cokin holder too
