About Tamrac

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.

Perfect for my needs.


from Peoria, IL  -  Casual Photographer

This is the first camera bag I have owned and I am very happy with it. I just recently purchased a T3i and have been looking for some sort of bag to carry it in. I wanted something that would be comfortable to carry around, large enough to hold all of my camera accessories plus a little more, small enough I wouldn't mind taking it along with me, and I didn't want it to scream "CAMERA BAG" so it would be less noticeable I was carrying a DSLR. This bag meets all of those requirements. My biggest annoyance is when the straps are adjusted to fit me comfortably (I am a small guy), there is a lot of extra strap hanging. I wish there was some convenient way to tuck them away so I don't have to either cut them or come up with some creative way to hide all the extra strap. The construction feels solid, zippers are strudy, velcro is strong.


Just what I wanted!


from Gainesville, FL  -  Photo Enthusiast

The best feature is that nearly every piece of photography equipment stores in the bag--no more forgetting that one critical thing you have to have on a trip. Very easy to access all your gear, and knowing the rain cover is there makes you feel better about going out in iffy weather.

Love this bag


from Culver City, CA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Bought this so I can bring my gear to the bahamas for a cruise. I got a 7D, a 28-135mm, 17-55mm and a 50mm and LED120 light and light meter on the bottom part and A kodak playsport, my wallet, sunglasses, batteries, CF cards on the top part and I even brought my Steadicam Merlin and Benro tripod placed on the outside of the bag. Very versatile! I just used is as a backpack though. Not as a sling bag.


Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

arthur k  I have a Benro A2690TBH1 tripod Will this work with this backpack? Where will this be attached to the pack? on the side or in the middle Art K.
DENNIS D  I believe you can still attach it in the middle. My Benro tripod is smaller than the A2690TBH1. You should try it and see how it sits in the center of the bag.
Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
KEN H  I choose this bag because it carries all my equipment, and doubles as desk, tri-pod and the ease in which you use it. I love it.
Shopper  I'm looking for a ****** for ******. Do you think this would work well for that? Other recommendations?
KEN H  I purchased this bag for a trip I took to Europe in September 2010. This bag worked so well. I loved it. Now I use it in my business. I am a property manager in Hawaii and take all my own shots for adverstising on my web site. KensAvenue.com - I can grab my bag and off to the property. i can walk the property with bag on and shot away. Easy to handle, easy to pull around and use as tri-pod, or grab a different len, flash, battery. I carry everything in it, so I am always ready to hit the road. Buying this bag to me was a great investment in myself and my business. I use it all the time both in business and play. My bag works for me. Thanks for letting me share. Aloha from Hawaii Ken
