  • Excerpt: I have always liked Tamarc products and thought that I would take a chance that it would work with Mirrorless equipment. It works fantastic and I am looking forward to adding a 100-300mm lens to the bag. I have taken a hike with the bag and it gets the weight off my shoulders, which was one of my requirements. Well-built and at the top of the price range I was looking in but well worth it. Four stars cause nothing is perfect.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Lightweight, Strong Construction, Well Padded
  • Cons: No Outside Pocket Padding

  • Excerpt: I'd got one purchased some 20 years ago. After so many years, I needed a new one to replace it. And couldn't be else than a new one 706!I noted this was built in the States, meanwhile my previous one was from Canada.Let's hope the quality will be the same, since I note a little difference in the cordura finishing.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Nice, Well Padded

Handy bag but tight fit

Grandpa Dan, B&H Photo
7 June 2012
  • Excerpt: I have hundreds of dollars of photo bags in my closet as a results of trying to get the right fit for my photo equipment. I was attracted to the Tamrac 706 because it holds the camera the way I like, horizontally, and not vertically the way most bags do. I don't know why I like it this way; I just do and so few bags are made this way. I also need a hip belt as my shoulders can't take much weight anymore.

Iwould buy this product again

  • Excerpt: I don,t like carrying a camera(gadget)bag on my shoulder, when I have the camera strap around my neck. I strap this bag around my waist, over my rear. When I need an accessory(lens,filter,etc.) I slide the bag around to my front, and take what I need. I also shoot with the bag on the front. For me this is much more comfortable than a pack.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Lightweight, Made in USA, Strong Construction, Well Padded

Best all-tme

  • Excerpt: I bought this bag in 1984. Since that time I've owned a large variety or equipmet: compact DSLRs, Pro bodies, large zooms, fast primes, you name it. I'm also a bag nut. Over the years I've bought and sold dozens of bags made by many companies. This little Tamrac convertible one of the most comfortable and useful bags I've ever owned. It's a great hiking bag. It has protected my equipment during downpours and blizzards and appears to be completely indestructable.

Very adaptive, strap extremely comfy

  • Excerpt: Have had this version for close to 2 decades. Two end pockets weak in both protection(add dense foam) and closure. I use hip harness pocket for camera rain cover storage. Still looks great, no zipper failures, always protected lenses and cameras. Mono pod mounts perfectly on lower straps. Also has 4 loops towards the upper corners, that can be used as small bungee cord catches. Good, rugged design last.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Lightweight, Strong Construction, Very adaptable, Well Padded
  • Cons: End pockets

It's Small

  • Excerpt: Nice bag, but it is small. Not practical if you have a pro body or grip. Forget it if you have fast/ large lens. Construction looks good. Sending it back. Will try a larger model.

15 years and still going

  • Excerpt: I've owned this bag for over 15 years and it held two X-700 bodies, flash, 70-210 Vivitar, 28mm wide, two 50mm primes, assorted filters, extra batteries...you name it. the straps under neath worked great for strapping on the tripod or a rolled up jacket. Front pouch zipper blew out last year but got it fixed. I now have to configure it for my new K-7. Don't carry glass filters in the outside pockets without extra protection. They aren't padded. All in all, great value.

  • Excerpt: I live in Chicago and do a lot of street photography and having my gear right in front of me at all times is a great convenience. Lots of room for what I need and appears to be made very well. I look forward to putting it to good use this summer.
