Excerpt: I have used the 515 Tel-Zoom for a several years. It is my everyday bag. Depening on what I am doing I just add a modular accessory to the bag and go. The construction is great. I just bought the 18-300 Nikor lens and needed a bigger bag so I bought the 517.
Excerpt: I've only had it ~2 weeks and haven't had a chance to use it in the field yet, but I have checked out my gear to see how it fits. It should work well. I find the holster design convenient and allows me keep the camera in a ready position to take pictures. I place the holster shoulder stap and the camera shoulder strap over my head and right shoulder and have it rest on my left shoulder. I leave more slack in the camera strap so the camera is cradeled in the holster.
Pros: Comfortable Strap, Good Protection, Lightweight
Excerpt: I bought this as a replacement for another Tamrac bag that was much too big for the small amount of digital gear that I currently own. The MAS and SAS attachment points are ideal for easy expansion as my gear grows, and for now, the bag is very portable and easy to deal with.

Pros: Compact, Customizable, Durable, Good Protection, Lightweight
Excerpt: I use the 517 tele-zoom pak holster bag for my Nikon D-7000 with a 18-200 zoom lens attached. I wanted something to protect my camera when I take it to the golf course or when I shoot landscape scenes. This bag is very convenient for protecting the camera from bumps and nicks. Especially when taking pictures on the move and need to put the camera down, such as in a golf cart.
Pros: Comfortable Strap, Compact, Durable, Good Protection, Lightweight, Lightweight and durable, Perfect fit for my camera
Excerpt: I ordered this up for my 7d and 28-135 lens and it is a bit big for this set up. I want a compact bag for hiking and skiing. I might use this for my 5Dm11 with a bigger lens instead and order up the smaller version for my 7d.
Pros: Comfortable Strap, Durable, Good Protection, Lightweight
Excerpt: This is a classic holster with some simple and well thought out details. Ergonomically perfect and easy to carry either by the lid handle or with the strap. Smart details include the extra d-rings at the sides. I clip this bag to the front of my backpack straps with four mini-carabiners which makes it ideal for balance, stability, and accessibility while hiking. More interior room than you might imagine.
Pros: Accessibility, Durable, Good Protection, Lightweight
