We ordered two, one for me and one for Sue. At £3.99 each including first class postage it's hard to see where we can go wrong.

It's also a Pentax/Ricoh branded item, not just a bag with Pentax written on it.

Do we need another bag? Probably not, but I like these odd manufacturer's bag offerings. I'm still on the lookout for a Speedbag M and a Speedbag (Std, not M) plus the large leather outfit case from the 1970s/1980s.

A Google search of the Speedbag shows you've been searching for it for 13 years

Only 13 years? My, how time flies!
Best regards, John

Thanks, I've made an offer on that. It sounds like it will want a good deal of renovation inside, but the exterior looks acceptable.
Best regards, John

They also have the original K1 (and KPs) in stock at £999. I too don't need another bag - I've got three of the classic (similar looking) Pentax shoulder bags and a whopper Jessops one - but at this price? I've ordered one.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Completely off-topic, but I seem to have ended-up with a small selection of Pentax bags including a meal briefcase-style bag (popular in the 1980s but pretty impractical apart from being secure, and a SFX-labelled shoulder bag. Funny how the peripheral stuff is so much harder to find.

Even for £3.99 I think this bag's too ugly.

Hence they've a load that won't shift, so they're banging 'em out cheap.

(I agree BTW...)

Beauty is in the eye of the bag-holder...
