      Pro's:

      Unique Design - tried many slings but this one stands out because the top opens away from your body and the wide-mouth gives you full access to all your gear while protecting it from spilling out or being stolen.

      Fits Comfortably - Can be slung across one shoulder to carry it, or carried as intended across your back. Handle on top is very useful.

      Large Compartments - Holds my "kit" consisting of Nikon D3, 70-200mm lens, 14-24mm lens, 24-70mm lens, and SB900 Speedlight. Any of the lenses can remain attached to the camera body. Front pocket accommodates remote control, blower, lens cloth, keys, wallet, etc.

      Cons:

      Small zipper - The zipper on the main compartment should be beefier. Although it open smoothly, it isn't as "high-quality" as the rest of the bag.

      Carry Handle is Nylon - Should have a beefy rubber carrying handle.

      Construction is Value not Premium - Clearly this case is a value for the price but my individual preference would be to beef-up construction by adding more padding (I've inserted other pads at bottom of bag), thickening the denier of the nylon, and addressing the 2 points above.

      Bottom-line:

      Despite my criticisms, I really really like this bag and would buy it again. I believe it is a great value for the price. I would however, be willing to pay more if the above suggested improvements were made. This may not be Tamrac's marketing approach as they seem to appeal to the mass market in the value-stream.

      As a photojournalist, I need a bag that allows me to carry multiple bodies and lenses while still providing quick access. This bag fails on both counts.
      The Tamrac diagrams that show how two bodies can fit inside with several lenses are completely deceptive. The bag looks big, but it's deceptively small on the inside. Inside, the bags dividers are flimsy and don't support the weight of the camera body. The bottom of the bag is curved, causing the contents to slide to the center. I had to remove one of the center dividers to fit my lenses. All I wanted to carry was a body with lens attached, two lenses, a flash, and either a netbook or another body. They're not even close to fitting as shown in the advertising.

      The video that shows a photographer in action with his sling bag is deceptive as well. To get the bag to swing around to your hip requires you to wear the bag uncomfortably lower on your back than is shown in the video. Coupled with the poor design of the strap, this will lead to back problems.

      The bag itself is sturdy and well-made, but it better be for this price. I'm also surprised there aren't more auxiliary compartments as with other bags. This essentially has a main storage area, an area for filters and lens caps in the flap, and one outside storage area big enough for media and slim objects, but not for something bigger like a battery charger.

      As far as access, the zipper for the top is hard to get hold of in a hurry.

      All in all, this is not much storage for a lot of money. I like my other Tamrac bag, but this is a huge disappointment.

        Comments about Tamrac 5770 Velocity10x Pro Sling Bag:

        I initially purchased Velocity 5768 but it was too small to fit my Canon 7D with a battery grip along with 3 lenses (16-35, 28- 70, & 70 - 200mm) and my 580 flash.

        I exchanged it wiht 5770 and I was able to fit all my equipment and still had room to put more!

            It's big, but if you have to carry an FX camera, 2 f/2.8 zoom lenses, and a flash, you need something this big, and it does the job. And the sling/backpack feature distributes the weight while keeping your hands free.

              I had the 8x, but I bought a larger camera with battery grip and found that not everything fit anymore. I tried a different bag but sent it back. It did not compare to the Velocity sling bag. The 10x sling bag is large enough for my D800 DSLR with battery grip and 70-200mm/2.8 lens attached and a smaller lens and flash in the bag as well. The front pocket holds 3 card cases, a light meter, and a white balance disk plus more.

                I HAVE THE VELOCITY 9X PRO AND RECENTLY ACQUIRED ANOTHER LENS SO TO FIT ALL MY CARRY EQUIPMENT I PURCHASED THE 10X. THIS BAG FITS EVERYTHING SAFELY AND SECURELY; CANON 1D MK4, 85mm 1.2L, 24-70mm 2.8L, 70-200mm 2.8L IS, 580EXll. ALOT OF HEAVY GLASS ALL WITH SUN SHADE ATTACHED AND THE SHADE ON THE 70-200 MOUNTED ON BACKWARDS. I ATTACH THE 24-70 OR 70-200 ON THE BODY AND BOTH SET UP STORES WITHOUT HAVING TO CHANGE BACK TO THE OTHER LENS. I WOULD HAVE NEVER GUESSED THAT ALL THIS STUFF FITS AND THIS STYLE BAG KEEPS THE WEIGHT CLOSE TO YOUR BODY.

                Comments about Tamrac 5770 Velocity10x Pro Sling Bag:

                GREAT BAG!! I bought the 10x and the 8x. I use the 10x almost exclusively to carry two cameras, a medium tele, wide angle, and converter. I shoot sports and nature and this bag fits the bill for both. The sling design allows you to strap UP for the hike to the field and then DOWN to the hip to easily access the gear. I shoot a tele on a monopod with the 2nd camera and wide angle ready to go in the bag for when the sports action comes close.
                For how I use this bag, it's perfect. My only warning to others is the one strap design can be painful when it's heavily loaded and on longer hikes. The waist strap helps a great deal to distribute the weight for longer hikes, but is sort of a pain to put away once on site. I get compliments on this bag all the time on it's design.
                I also bought the 8x for those times when I simply want a single camera/lens with some accessories. The 8x also works great to store EXTRA equipment when also using the 10x.
                In certain situations I've actually had both the 10x and 8x on each a hip when shooting with 3 camera/lens combinations.

                  Comments about Tamrac 5770 Velocity10x Pro Sling Bag:

                  Although I only have one SLR body camera, two standard lens, a 2x converter and a 100-400 canon telezoom, I chose the bigger bag in this model in order to have additional room for personal accesories like a sunblock, a t-shirt , a cap, granola bars, etc. for one-day trip photography. I am extremely satisfied with this purchase. I can walk one full without major fatigue. The strong and comfortable waist-belt helps a lot in order to reduce the pressure on your shoulders, no matter if you have a big belly. For lack of time, usually I do not use to write all reviews for my online purchases, but I always spent lot of time reading what other costumers write before a final decision. You can use this bag for non-photo related travels. One more thing, this bag is very discret photo-accesory in order to avoid be seen carryng photo equipment specially in areas/countries with high criminality. It seems that the quality is high. Let's see what happen after one year of use. I got it only 2 weeks ago.

                    I put 2 of my DSLR's in the bag with lenses on (a wide angle and a 70-300 zoom) along with extra lenses for both, filters, cleaner, release forms, etc.....everything I could possibly need on an assignment. I don't have to think about the extras; I just grab the bag and go! It's a little heavy but that's not the bag's fault!! It's strong, well built and convenient for my work. Thanks Tamrac!! Thanks B&H!

                    I am a pro nature/outdoor photographer. This bag allows me the freedom to move along with the comfort to carry the gear that I need. My only nit is that it would seem beneficial to have a more padded strap. The one supplied tends to get painful after wearing it for awhile.

                      bought this as a surprise gift for my husband from our brand new baby. my husband is an amateur phhotographer but he loves photographing and has complained that his old bag was not large enough for all his equipment. He says the new bag is Very spacious providing ample room for a variety of equipment. He also loves the convenience of the sling. Since he is 6'4, the large bag fits his body perfectly although I can see it may be big for a smaller frame.

                        I carry one linhof 617sIII with 180mm lens, five 72mm filters, one trip cable, one changing bag (large), one light meter (spot), film (120). Ripped out all the compartment dividers, and used other stuff to protect the camera. Easy access to inside compartment, and also easy access to zippered front pocket. Sling the whole thing over your shoulder and you go AND, when it sets down on the ground, its top is up. Ding! No, I don't wear it around my neck like the model does in the picture, but then, he's a model and I'm the real deal. I would like the whole bag in black, including the name brand patch.

                        When this equipment is not in this bag, it all goes into a big Pelican watertightcrushproofheavywithwheels case. No fooling around.

                            Size matters, I have a smaller Tamrac Sling pack which I use for a single body and three lenses and a flash. But when working I need the rest of my gear and often have to hump it out in the boonies.

                              I shoot with a 5D MarkII, I have several lenses plus flash, everything I need fits in this bag. The inside pocket holds all of my filters in their cases, the front pocket holds all my CF Cards and battery charger plus extra batteries. The look is sleek and not bulky like some backpacks. The only con that I have is when I am loaded down with my camera and L lenses it can get pretty heavy on just one shoulder, but all in all this is the bag that I have been looking for for a long time....

                              I do a lot of on the run photography in my travels and find the Velocity10x Sling Bag a great way to protect and have easy access to my Nikon D300S with the Nikkor 70-200 f/2.8 lens. I had been using the Velocity 8x for a long time with the Nikon d40dx and 300mm lens and found it to be a very functional combination. Upgrading to the D300S and a much more robust lens made the 8x bag too cramped. The Velocity 10x Sling Bag is a great product and much more functional than the old back pack bag I use to carry.

                                I tried several sling type bags before deciding on this one. I would have preferred one a little smaller but the smaller ones didn't accommodate my 70-200mm 2.8 lens. This bag will make it easier to change lens, etc while touring sights in Europe. It allows you to have both hands free and there is room for additional cameras or camcorders. I also like that you can carry it as a shoulder bag if needed.

                                I found the Kata bags shape awkward to carry.

                                  I am very happy with this bag. I wanted something that allowed easy access to my gear while shooting outdoors. I shoot wedddings and conservation photos and easy access for both is a must! I'm happy to be able to fit two pro bodies in the bag and my beast of a 70-200 2.8 lens on the camera. I haven't completely loaded it up yet, so I'm wondering what the weight will be like with more of a load and the sling strap. I love the pockets - the front pouch is big enough to hold my water bottle and a sandwich!

                                    As a photojournalist, I need a bag that allows me to carry multiple bodies and lenses while still providing quick access. This bag fails on both counts.
                                    The Tamrac diagrams that show how two bodies can fit inside with several lenses are completely deceptive. The bag looks big, but it's deceptively small on the inside. Inside, the bags dividers are flimsy and don't support the weight of the camera body. The bottom of the bag is curved, causing the contents to slide to the center. I had to remove one of the center dividers to fit my lenses. All I wanted to carry was a body with lens attached, two lenses, a flash, and either a netbook or another body. They're not even close to fitting as shown in the advertising.

                                    The video that shows a photographer in action with his sling bag is deceptive as well. To get the bag to swing around to your hip requires you to wear the bag uncomfortably lower on your back than is shown in the video. Coupled with the poor design of the strap, this will lead to back problems.

                                    The bag itself is sturdy and well-made, but it better be for this price. I'm also surprised there aren't more auxiliary compartments as with other bags. This essentially has a main storage area, an area for filters and lens caps in the flap, and one outside storage area big enough for media and slim objects, but not for something bigger like a battery charger.

                                    As far as access, the zipper for the top is hard to get hold of in a hurry.

                                    All in all, this is not much storage for a lot of money. I like my other Tamrac bag, but this is a huge disappointment.
