Perfect for travel

Chris in Kentucky, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I bought this bag for travel with a laptop and photo gear. The rear compartment holds my 15" laptop snug, but it fits without much effort. I have also been able to pack the main compartment with a camera body attached to the 100-400 lens, and fit a second lens and flash unit. The three ways to access this compartment are very handy. Only thing missing would be removable dividers for the top compartment, to secure a second camera body. All in all, very happy with the bag.

Evolve to this Sling Backpack!

  • Excerpt: Expanding my photography business entails upgrading to more functional/rugged equipment for daily and travel use. The 5788 Evolution has not disappointed. It is very comfortable to wear - I'm a woman in my 50s and didn't want a heavy pack. Hiking with it fully loaded is not a problem. It's big enough for my Nikon, 5+ lenses, assorted accessories, a tripod, and a 15" laptop w/charger.

  • Excerpt: Shopped around to replace my sling bag. Although they all say they will fit a camera with battery grip, they don't! Tamrac does! Well constructed and designed. Especially like the side access for my camera!

Great Bag

  • Excerpt: Well-made, rugged, strong. Can pack a full frame camera, three lenses, and miscellaneous items. Great for longer trips when you need additional equipment. Only complaint, which isn't much of one, is that the straps are too long for a smaller person like myself.

tough as nails!

  • Excerpt: This bag is well built and nicely padded, holds 15" laptop, 2 DSLR's and one Mirrorless all with lenses attached, plus 4 extra lenses and many accessories, has a strap for your tripod and various ways you can setup the back straps. My bag was left on my jeep tire on an expedition and was ran over, all that was damaged severely was the strap and my laptop, but my cameras and all other equipment was left undamaged!

pretty close to perfect

  • Excerpt: I recently purchased this after purchasing the Evo 9 and deciding it was too large. To be fair, the Evo 9 may be perfect if you're on assignment for National Geographic and have to carry a full complement of fast lenses, but I found it a bit overwhelming. Additionally, the Evo 8 fits comfortably in an overhead bin, I doubt a fully loaded Evo 9 would.

"Top Notch"

17 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this backpack for a trip to Africa. The size was the most important point due to restrictions by the airline. This bag fits that to a tee. Lots of room and really easy to reach all the pockets and zippers. The construction of this bag is top of the line.

Great Travel / Day pack

Jaybyrd, B&H Photo
21 June 2014
  • Excerpt: Just returned from 12 days in Alaska. Independent touring and a cruise. Purchased the Evol 8 for the trip. It performed exceptionally well and is very well constructed. The camera compartment held the D7000, an 18-140, 70-300, binoculars, a charger, sunglasses and cell charger. With room to spare. The top section was good for passports, camera "raincoat", meds, a book, lunches, and a stainless steel coffee mug.
  • Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Fits Under Airline Seats, Roomy, Strong Construction, Very Versatile
  • Cons: Chest Strap Too High, Heavy
