Tamrac's new Evolution Series backpacks provide an unprecedented level of versatility. With their unique harness system, the Evolution Series backpacks can be carried three ways - as a backpack, as a sling pack over the right shoulder, or as a sling pack over the left shoulder.
There are also three ways to access equipment using Tamrac's Triple Access System. When carried as backpacks, the two foam-padded shoulder straps, waist belt and chest strap distribute the weight. For quick access to equipment, slip off one shoulder strap and swing the pack around to the front. Once in front, a side door can be opened to access a DSLR with a lens attached and other photo gear. To get to additional equipment, swing the pack around to the opposite shoulder and open the side door on the other side of the pack.
To carry the Evolution Series backpacks as sling packs, cross-connect a single shoulder strap, red to red for carrying on the right shoulder, or blue to blue for carrying on the left shoulder. The other shoulder strap is easily tucked away. When the packs are removed, all gear can be accessed through the door to the main compartment. The internal dividers are foam padded and adjustable. A Windowpane-Mesh accessory pocket inside the front door is ideal for keeping small accessories visible and organized.

I originally purchased the Tamrac, then found out Kata came out with their 3N1 sling backpack two years ahead of Tamrac. The Kata has much easier access to equipment, a nice bright yellow interior (you can actually see your gear!). The Kata is also more comfortable and they make a version that holds my iPad! I returned the Tamrac and purchased the Kata 3N1-22.
