    I use a canon 5D mark II "Gripped" meaning my camera has an attachment that holds two batteries which makes the whole camera larger. I am an outdoor hobby Photographer. My Canon 5D Mark II Griped fits perfectly in the sling bag along with my two external flashes Canon 580 and 430 and there is more storage areas for memory cards , cables, I like that my camera and flash wall chargers fold up and fit perfectly in the extra storage area compartment.. ...This sling bag is great because I don't have to remove it to access all my gear, I just loosen the strap using the thumb slip and slid it around in front of me. I am glad I purchased this GEM. It is obvious after using this camera bag, The company put a lot of research into designing this bag. NOTE: this bag fits my needs well but with so many camera MFG out there I can't say yours will work as well as mine in this bag. I am Pleased with the bag.

    I wanted a bag that would hold most of my gear for a trip to Cambodia. I liked the idea of not having to put it down to get to my gear. It's a rather large sling bag, almost backpack like in size. I fit an A700 with Grip, 70-200 f2.8lens, and two smaller lens, and a flash quite easily, even had extra space for a small camcorder as well. But with all that equipment comes the weight also. So I put it on and strap it up and the one sling just isn't comfortable with all that stuff in there. The weight pulls on your shoulder and it takes a little longer to sling it to the front. If you're looking for a bag to hold all your stuff, a traditional backpack might be a better choice because there's two straps to support the weight evenly. This is a good bag if you don't intend to fill it up with all the gear it can accomodate. The smaller velocities are alot nicer, and easy on the shoulders as they fit a more confortable weight in camera gear.

    This bag is large enough for my use. I'm carrying 3 lenses, external flash, DSLR camera with battery grip. Only problem I have is that the sling strap does not fit comfortably on my shoulder.

      Comments about 5769 Velocity 9x Sling Pack (Black):

      The Tamrac Velocity 9x provides easy access for my Canon 7D with attached Canon 70-200mm zoom and quick change out to my Canon 24-70mm lens. Plus being able to carry a large flash unit and two smaller lenses makes it a great hiking pack for my camera gear. The shoulder strap allows quick and easy adjustment from back to front.
      Would like to see three future improvements for the pack (1) straps for a small tripod/momopod (2)a flat base with a hard plastic bottom to allow the pack to be a vertically stand-alone unit when not being worn (3)rain cover.

          Comments about 5769 Velocity 9x Sling Pack (Black):

          The illustration suggested to me the product opened from the front. Opening only from the top was a supprise. It makes the bag a bit more difficult to use. But the quality is excellent. The bag fits my Canon Mark II body, Canon 80-200 lens, Canon Wide angle lens and Cannon 50mm lens. I have not yet figured out how to lash it to my backpack but it looks like it will work great. It will function beautifully by itself as a way to transport my gear on day hikes, keeping the equipment protected & handy to access quickly.

          Typical Tamrac rugged construction. Having the weight of the full or even empty bag across one shoulder becomes very uncomfortable- not good for long shoots. I was constantly re-positioning it to get the weight off my shoulder. Went with another Tamrac bag that fastened around the waist. Much better.

            The tote is the perfect size to carry both my D3 and F100, plus three lenses. I like to shoot in both mediums and this bag allows me to carry all this gear in a fairly compact easy to carry shoulder pack. Access to my gear is quick and I can go from camera to camera without setting down the tote.

                This bag has all the potential, seems great for the lenses and camera, BUT and it's a HUGE BUT.. it is made for men, and short men at that. The sling strap is most uncomfortable for women, not none of the photos of it in use show a woman wearing it across the front. It absolutely cuts your breast off, and even on my husband the padded strap is badly designed and doesnt even reach to his shoulder. Not a good buy!

                          Great bag but needs a lower side or front access to put in other lenses instead of going through the top of the bag where the camera sits.

                          I needed a relatively compact quick access bag for my D3/D700 and 70-200 lens. The camera can be removed and placed back w/o taking the bag off my shoulders. I also carry W/A lens, blower, cable release, and home made ground level camera support pod. I removed most of the internal pad dividers, this opens the inside up considerably. The gear fits well and is protected. When I read some reviews they complained about not being able to get enough inside, or too dificult to get the items out. Well, don't overload it. The Tamrac load claims I think are a bit excessive if you want quick easy access. However, I really like the bag as I'm using it and, like most Tamrac products, is well constructed. The reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is the shoulder padding needs to be thicker and come down a little lower on the strap.

                          Use this everyday to carry my photo everywhere I go.
                          Very convenient.
                          Wish I could fit my 15in laptop in it :)

                            This is a very nice camera bag. Holds your DSLR
                            camera, one extra lense and smaller stuff can be put into the front pouch. Has a place where extra memory can be stored. Lots of padding and very well constructed.

                            I store my Nikon D7000 and accessories.
                            I have the smaller version of this sling now and love it. Great protection. Easy access.
                            This bag is a little hard to store when traveling.

                            The bag is well made and sturdy, but a little large for my taste. I had to increase from the 7" (which was perfect for carrying, but too small for both my lenses. Not sure I wouldn't have been just as well off with a square bag.
