Tamrac Features

  • Convert to a Sling Pack: To convert to a sling pack, simply 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 in Tamrac's Tuck-A-Way harness system
  • Foam-padded Computer Pocket: In back, a completely foam-padded laptop pocket holds most 15.6" screen laptops and others up to 15" x 10.25 x 1.5" in size
  • Foam-Padded Top Compartment: A foam-padded top compartment provides storage for a light jacket, lunch, or other photo accessories. A mesh pocket in the back keeps small accessories separate and secure, while a Windowpane-Mesh pocket on the inside door panel holds additional small items
  • QuickClip Tripod Attachment System: A tripod is cradled (centered and balanced) securely with Tamrac's QuickClip tripod attachment system while the lower Tripod Foot Pocket holds two tripod legs secure
  • Side Pockets and Rain Cover: Each side has a zipper-closing pocket for accessories like a phone or iPod. The right pocket contains a removable rain cover, which can be slipped over the pack during extreme weather

This is a great concept! I love the idea of laptop and equipment in one. However, my 21" PC laptop would not fit and I realized once everything was loaded, it was incredibly heavy, and I'm a strong, fit person. I love the Tamrac Evolution design, just downgraded to an 8 and continue to use a messenger bag for my laptop. I'm very happy with the quality and construction of the Tamacs.

Just Right!


from Lima, Ohio  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Have been looking for a "dual purpose" bag to carry everything I need for a photo shoot. Bought other bags and they were either too big or not big enough. This Bag carrys my D80 w/battery extension and lense attatched and three other lenses including my 300mm. Also allows me to carry flash, meter, ext tubes, compartments for all the cords and chargers (for trips), and a tripod. Love the quick and easy access to the camera from the side pocket without having to take off the back pack. Most importantly it allows me to carry my macbook pro and it protects it nicely. I've bought three other bags before buying this one. I should have waited!

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
MICHAEL M  ...I needed a new backpack that could protect a huge amount of gear, 2 dslr bodies w/ battery grips, 4-5 lenses from 17-55 f/2.8 to 70-300, w/ a 70-200L included for good measure, 2 speedlites, extenders, filters, tripod, laptop, light modifiers, usb drives and so on; both in the field, through airport security and on the plane as well. Even better, it offers sling accessibility from 3 angles. Great bag I'd purchase again...
