The brown/tan Velocity 6x Compact Sling Bag opens up a world of shooting possibilities for you. It's rated to hold your small DSLR with a 5" lens attached, extra lens or flash plus various accessories. The camera is held facing down in shooting position supported by padded, movable internal dividers. The pack is ostensibly worn on your back but can easily be swung to the front for rapid access as a sling pack. The comfortable strap is padded and distributes the weight evenly making this pack a joy to tote around. There's also a top carry handle for quick grab situations. The pack is made from rugged 600D PolyTek.

The pack is characterized by a front Quick Flip Top that open away from your body providing both rapid access to the camera as well as helping with security since no one around you will be able to see inside the pack. The top lid features an inside accessory pocket for anything small like a lens cap or memory card. In the front, there's a larger zippered accessory pocket that contains multiple slots for everything from your smart phone to memory cards. And speaking of memory cards, the Velocity 6x employs Tamrac's exclusive Memory & Battery Management System that is comprised of little red flags that can indicate which are fresh cards or batteries and which are expired or used up.

In addition, the pack makes use of Tamrac's very versatile Modular Accessory System that will permit you to add on additional pouches to hold anything from another lens to a water bottle. Weighing in at a mere 1 lb, the Velocity 6x combines the advantages of both a backpack and sling pack and can make your shooting more expeditious and fun.

        Also should work well for any other compact camera with interchangeable lenses (e.g. m4/3).

        -1* for not having quick-release harness clasp. And too prominent logo.

          This small bag offers an excellent protection to the camera and is quite small compared to usual big protection bags. Ideal to travel or vacation activities.

              Comments about Tamrac Velocity 6x Compact Sling Bag (Brown/Tan):

              I'm using this with a DSLR and a lens and it's perfect. I was looking for something that was small and would sling over my shoulder and be easy and comfortable to carry. Also wanted something well made. This thing's perfect. Carries the camera with small zoom (18-200) attached and a second zoom, beside it. Could also carry a mid-sized flash. Has a zipped pocket inside, and a large pocket on the outside to carry cards and batteries with the red flap to show which are used/spent. Also has the standard padded and velcroed dividers and a nice gripped handle. One of those bags you could own for 20 years and not need another. Only minor con is the small zipper to the main compartment is tough to get at and on the body-side of the bag - not the outside. So un-zipping the bag to get the camera in a hurry is tougher than it shoudl be. But this is a minor nit to pick.

                Comments about Tamrac Velocity 6x Compact Sling Bag (Brown/Tan):

                This bag is very well constructed, holds a little less than it says it will, but it does hold everything tightly. I am using it to carry my Pentax K-x with the 18-55 lens and it is just deep enough to leave the lens hood on without a problem. I also have a second lens, and a few small accessories in the bag. The sling system makes it very comfortable to carry , and it even stays if place fairly well when I ride my mtn bike with it. I do wish I had gone up a size to the 7x for a little more space and a waist strap.

                The "just right" sling bag

                I have about eight camera bags, including two Lowepro sling bags but all of them are too big for the m4/3 camera gear I have.
                The Velocity 6x is just the right size for my EP-2 and a few lenses without being very heavy or bulky.
