    As frequent flier, I badly needed a bag that provided quick and easy access to a well protected pro DSLR camera with lens attached(24-70 2.8), laptop, various other lenses and gadgets. I spent WAY too much time researching bags and even ordered one and sent it back. Finally I came across this bag, the only bag to meet all my criteria.

    Most importantly, this bag is perfect for the frequent-flyer. You can access the camera with the lens on it w/o having to set the bag down. You can easily slide the bag under the seat in front of you or put it in overhead compartment. I have got a d300 with grip, a 10.5mm 2.8, a 18-200mm 3.5-5.6, a 85mm 1.4, a nodal ninja 5 in its case, 14" laptop, chargers, cables, remotes, etc.. all in this pack easily.

    The side (quick access) to the camera is what sold me on this product. The side access is works great if you don't have a full size or a DSLR with a battery grip. Although it technically does fit my Canon 50D w/ battery grip, there is no use for side access due to the opening being too small. You have to be really careful taking it out from the side because the camera's hot shoe can rip the backpack's interior because of the tight opening. Aside from that, the backpack has good and strong construction. Although the overall backpack seams too big for me, it does fit really comfortable on the back and the shoulder. I'll be returning this within the next few days. I'll still give it a 2 star because of the excellent quality, but Tamrac shouldn't advertised the side access to work with full size DSLR or DSLR with battery grip (per Tamrac's website).

      Comments about Tamrac 3385 Aero Speed Pack 85 Dual Access Photo Backpack (Rust):

      Comfortable on your back.
      Fast access to equipment. Love the side camera pocket.
      Doesn't look like a photo equipment backpack, good disguise.
      Your laptop travels safely and cushioned.
      Good construction materials.

      Except for the zippers, the ones from the laptop compartment where the first ones to fall apart, and now the ones from the front camera compartment.
      I Had to replace them, but when they broke it was a big issue with expensive equipment on the run allmost falling from the bag.

      They should fix this cause the rest is optimum.

      I was going to buy a Lowepro, but the boy from the bags sector recommended me this one. I took the advice and was happy in the beginning.

      I still use it after I paid for the zippers change, but the moment I was traveling with the bag broke opened without noticing could have been a big problem. Someone pointed me this out thankfully.

              Comments about Tamrac 3385 Aero Speed Pack 85 Dual Access Photo Backpack (Rust):

              I have used the backpack on several plane trips. It fits in overhead compartments even on small planes. The lower compartment of the pack is designed for camera and accessories. While lenses fit snugly, the camera (D7000) doesn't, so I stuff some clothes around it, not only to keep it from moving around but also to protect the camera's back from other passengers' luggage which often gets jammed in the overhead compartment.The upper compartment is designed primarily for personal items. It has a flat bottom and a rounded top, so I find it helpful to use a 7x10 mesh bag to hold smaller items.The bag is well constructed. Stands up when placed on the ground. Separate laptop compartment is nice for easy access.

                      Fits my 7D with a 70-200L lens perfectly, however there is no place to put the lens hood that doesn't risk breaking it. The top pouch for "personal" items like a "lunch" has no reinforcement, so an impact there would break the plastic hood. Inside the main gear compartment there just isn't room for the lens hood, even if you leave out a spare lens or flash.

                      I do find it fits my 7D with a mounted 70-200L with tripod ring mount attached, two additional lenses, two flashes, and various cards and filters. The side-pocket for accessing the camera gives perfect access for a DSLR this size, but like others have noted a bigger body or battery grip might present a problem.

                      The main gear compartment is stiff and padded with velcro sided pockets and movable dividers, so if you're like me and have velcro dots on the sides of your flashes, you can stick two in there without fear of them rattling against each other.

                      I'm not much of a backpacker, so I don't have a history with how one should fit but for me it seems very comfortable.

                      I look forward to taking this thing with me everywhere. Still using my Pelican case for storage or any situation where my gear might take a beating in transport.

                      The bag was exactly as advertised.
                      I enjoy taking action shots, of my sons travel soccer team, and always had to carry my gear around in multiple, smaller bags, that can be difficult to get things into and out of. The backpack offers easier access to my items, especially the camera body. It also offers the compartment, for my laptop, so I can edit and post my photos, from the hotel each evening.

                      My only "complaint" is that there is not really room to stow my second camera body, with a lens attached.

                        Yes this is a big packpack, but that was what I was looking for. I was looking for a backpack that would allow me to carry my Canon Rebel with my Canon 400mm 5.6 with lens attached and easy access. Its a little tight, but works great none the less. The day after I got it, I took it out on a four hour backpack trip into the badlands. Carried the long lens attached plus 70-300, and 17-50 along with extra windbreaker, gloves, snacks, etc. All fit well. I would have given this product a five star, if it would have had a sternum strap. I wound up making my own for it with no problem. This pack carried well in rough terrain. It was great to be able to take all the equipment I needed along.

                          I use this when i travel for my 17" MacbookPro and a Nikon D200. it works great, is very protective of the gear and is comfortable to wear. This pack gets HEAVY when fully loaded, but it does cary everything all in one place. My only complaint is that while the pack is big enough to hold my Nikor 70-200 it will only do so with the lens attached to the camera. This means that every time i put the camera back in the bag i must attach it to the large lens, and put the smaller lenses in their respective holders. This becomes very inconvenient whn i'm using a smaller lens and just want to put my camera away temporarily without switching the lens.

                          Overall this is an excellent pack for travelling with your photo gear. I'm an amateur and only have 2 lens' for my Nikon 3100 but this pack was great for recent international travel. It fit under the airplane seats, holds extra's in the top compartment and fit my laptop well. I only have 2 small issues with the pack, there is no waist clip to ease the weight off the shoulder and the pack is on the slightly heavy side and needs some dryfit material on the inside so it is does not get so hot carrying the pack for excessive amount of time. I'm very pleased with the purchase!

                            This bag works great but I feel like it is a little bulky for how little it holds. I wish the top compartment was a little larger. Other than that I really like it and love the side compartment for easy camera use.

                              If I do not carry my gear correctly, I get a pain in the neck so distributing the weight correctly is essential.
                              The zipper is a bit difficult at the corners.

                                Use this pack to store my entire kit. Take it on long hikes.

                                My gear seems cushioned and protected. Laptop compartment is well sealed and spacious. Top storage compartment is very large as well. Quick access panel is just good enough to work, not as convenient as my former sling style bag, but probably as good as could be expected. It fits my 5D plus RRS L bracket attached, probably would be too tight of a fit for a battery grip attached.

                                Only a few let downs. The straps are average. Well constructed, but slightly thin considering what this bag is built to hold.

                                Also, no loops on the outside for attaching a tripod or other gear. I bought some velcro straps and tethered my tripod to the handle grip on the top of the bag. Works well enough.

                                Bag feels stiff and boxy, but actually looks natural and not like a camera bag at first glance. I definitely am happy I bought it, and I would buy it again.

                                I had been looking at this product since the first time my friend showed me her 3380. While the 3385 is a bit pricey, it has a lot of great features. I really wish it had more compartments though (I love storage areas, you simply can't have enough), also some compartments need better security; the pouches on the quick access camera flap for example. These are only secured by a tiny piece of Velcro. I was going to put extra SD memory in them, but figured they would fall out the first time I opened the flap. Also, when it's set up for comfort on anything other than a short trek, it's not as easy to access your camera from the quick access flap as they advertise. All complaining aside, I do like the Tamrac 3385 and I'm sure I will use the heck out of it.
