Lots of options!

  • Excerpt: This bag holds a wide variety of gear with lots of different configurations and access points. The zippers are pretty stiff to start, but I guess it's better than their being loose and getting sloppy. My only real complaint is that this bag really isn't built for a tall guy like me. (I'm 6'5".
  • Pros: Easily Accessible Equipment, Roomy, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Chest Strap Placement

Very Well Thoughtout

  • Excerpt: This is one of the better working bags around for hikes as well as location work. Very easy to access everything, has plenty of room for a fairly large kit. Works to hold several lenses and a couple pro bodies...it is not too bulky and offers very good protection as Tamrac is known for.

Just what I was looking for

20 February 2014
  • Excerpt: I was looking for a backpack that I could take on a couple of extended trips. I needed a backpack that I could carry a 5D MkII, a couple of lenses, flash, & accessories. I also needed one that would work as a carry-on because I certainly don't want to surrender my equipment to airline personnel.

  • Excerpt: Good solid, stable backpack. Only thing I would add to future backpacks is to have more padding on front part of backpack and different tripod support pocket. Good for traveling

An excellent bag that serves me well.

6 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I carry a Rebel 3Ti camera kit with an additional 75-300mm lens, a second Panasonic camera and a Sony camcorder. Everything is well protected and the dividers are adjustable. I just wish the inside would be of a light color. I appreciate the multiple pouches to hold filters, memory cards, etc..
  • Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Roomy
  • Cons: High Chest Strap

Great camera bag, with storage

RC from Westchester, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This bag has room for a DSLR with several lenses, flash, etc., plus has ample storage for chargers and other non-photographic stuff. Most importantly, it is small enough to be a personal bag for airline travel, if you are bringing a carryon, too. Room for a MacBook Pro 15.
