The Tamrac Velocity 8z Pro Photo Sling Pack (Black/Gray) is designed for a prosumer DSLR (such as the Canon 7D or Nikon D700) with a zoom lens up to 8.0" attached, 2 additional lenses, a flash and accessories. Inside, a foam-padded compartment provides storage and protection for an iPad. The padded sling strap allows the pack to be swung around to the front for camera access without having to remove the pack. The bag's secure zippered Quick Flip Top opens away from the body for fast and convenient access to camera gear. The front section has organizer pockets to keep a phone and photo accessories within easy reach while the lid can be used to store filters and lens caps. It also features Tamrac's Memory & Battery Management System and is part of Tamrac's Modular Accessory System so optional accessories can be easily added.

I shoot a lot outdoors where I'm in the field for hours and I have to carry my equipment some distance. When I need to transport almost everything, I have an Expedition 6x but it is quite heavy when fully loaded and the backpack design doesn't allow for easy access to the equipment. I was looking for a bag that could carry my D7000 along with 2-3 lenses, filters, batteries and a few other odds and ends. I looked at sling design bags that would carry my most frequently used equipment and still allow easy access. This bag does just that although I could probably have chosen the smaller Velocity 7z and been just as happy. It can carry a lot, be used like a backpack while trekking to the shoot, then be pulled around front for easy access when I'm ready to shoot. The best of both worlds. I usually put everything in the bigger Expedition 6x to drive to the location and then transfer just what I need into the Velocity 8z when I set off on foot.
