  • Awesome Camera Bag

  • July 12, 2012
  • By: Mike

Well I have been on the hunt for a strong and sturdy camera bag for awhile now. I have been researching different brands on look, style, feel, etc... The TAMRAC EVOLUTION 8 BLACK BACKPACK 5788 was the one that fit all what I was looking for. I loved the functionality of the bag, as if I wanted to have it as a backpack, or right/left sling bag, as well as a just a carry bag with the handle. It was large enough to fit my needs with my camera and several lenses. (D300 with 50mm and 24-70mm) The compartments were nice and tight so as I know as a consumer that my investments will be able to handle the swinging of the bag etc... The ablility to get to my camera is one of the great features of this bag. It doesn't matter what side the bag is on me, I am able to swing it around and get to my gear when I need too. It has a large enough front pouch to hold my BlackRapid Strap, filters, cables and even light snacks and bottles of water. My only complaint with this bag, and other bags that I have tried is the holder for the tripod. I personally do not have the smaller tripods it does recommend but more so the larger and bit heavier ones. The ones that I have tried on it does pull on the bag, so I does become somewhat of a hindrance. It is not bad if its for a short hike, but on a longer hike you will notice the strain. Overall I still give it a 5/5. It performs and does what it needs too. It is comfortable, ease of use and that it is an AW Bag it suits my needs fully. I recommend this bag to all my friends and they too have switched and picked up this model. Great work Tamrac. You now have a loyal customer.
