  • Excerpt: Bag will NOT fit on airplane if you store a computer (I tried Super 80, 737, 757). The back padding interferes, no way around it. Also, the pull out handle has no intermediate stops.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Lots Of Features, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Expensive, Will Not Fit On Airplane

It works

Adorama
31 October 2010
  • Excerpt: 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.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Roomy, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy, Lack of pockets

  • Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Easy access, Long handle for tall folk, Lots of room for gear, Strong Construction, Versatile pull or carry
  • Cons: Maybe different wheels

A good product, but . . .

20 February 2009
  • Excerpt: 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.
  • Pros: Opens easily
  • Cons: Wheels should be larger

  • Excerpt: I use it everyday to go on location shootings, and it carries everything I need. great wheels for poor New York sidewalks, that absorbs most of the shocks! I decided to remove all the backpack straps I did not need, which gave me an additional pocket to store my laptop cables.

TAMRAC 697 WELL MADE BUT LOSS OF ROOM

BONEDADDY, B&H Photo
27 April 2008
  • Excerpt: This backpack is used by me for outdoor shoots. Its typical of all tamrac bags, well made, durable, and comfortable to carry if you are strong enough to carry such a large pack. I also have a tamrac 677 which I like better than this bag. Both are approx.
  • Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Not enough loops

Nice pack

28 December 2007
  • Excerpt: Nicely made convertible roller/backpack. Very solid. My 17 Mac book Pro fits perfectly in the laptop pouch. That was a surprised since the spec only says it will hold only a 15 laptop. I think it's because the 17 Mac book Pro is only 1 thick.
