About Tamrac #697

Big Wheels Rolling Photo Backpacks
The Big Wheels Rolling Photo Backpacks, Models 697 and 698, combine the advantages of a wheeled camera bag and a photographer's backpack in a unique, highly protective camera case. Designed for photographers who must carry a lot of equipment in diverse situations, the Big Wheels Rolling Photo Backpacks have oversized, ball-bearing wheels and telescoping handles for easy travel, but when a flight of stairs is encountered, they quickly convert to a backpack via the hidden Tuck- A-Way backpack harness. The front pocket of each is foam padded to hold a notebook computer, accessories or files. Our QuickClip tripod attachment system holds professional-sized tripods balanced and centered when not in use.

Model 697 is large enough for most photo situations and will hold a digital SLR with large telephoto lens attached and a very broad selection of equipment.

Real good bag


from South Jordan, Utah  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Very good bag, and made in USA.

It works


from Rio de Janeiro  -  Pro Photographer

Well... it worths. It is flexible - we may configure as you want and need. It fits two bodies, one mounted with a heavy and long lenses. As I have a smaller backpack as well, with 3 fantastic external pockets, same brand, I feel missing a spot for cleaning stuff, puff, windex, etc. It does also lacks on pockets for cell phones. I got an external accessory - which does the work, but it is not the same.


A good product, but . . .


from Metairie, LA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use the bag to move equipment from one central location to another. I then take out and use particular gear for a particular outing. As matters turn out, I think I should have purchased the larger model--the 698. The 697, however, is just as represented--except that I might have hoped for larger wheels.

Easy photo trailer for bad backs


from Birmingham, AL  -  Photo Enthusiast

I have a bad back and the 697 affords versatility when needed. I primarily pull my equipment but when needed you can carry your equipment. The long handle makes pulling the 697 very easy especially for us tall folks.
