    Comments about 5765 Velocity 5x Photo Hip Pack Convertible Bag (Black):

    Using if for a Canon 5D is a bit of a problem as it is a larger body. The "face" size is fine but it lacks a couple of inches of depth for looser fit of gear. It will be difficult to include another lens in the case with the D5. The body and 17-40mm lens fit snugly but OK, but am doubting another small to medium lens will go in there off to one side. Well made case otherwise.

      Comments about 5765 Velocity 5x Photo Hip Pack Convertible Bag (Black):

      I purchased Tamrac's 8x backpack but also needed an in between bag for a recent trip to Alaska. Some of the bus/train trips we took simply would not accomodate large bags. The 5765 Velocity 5x Photo Hip Pack Convertible Bag filled that void.
      Roomy enough to carry the essentials. Comfortable with easy access

        Comments about 5765 Velocity 5x Photo Hip Pack Convertible Bag (Brown with Tan):

        I use this for hiking/biking with my Pentax K-r or *istDL. The padded middle socket of the main section holds either quite well w/ 18-55 kit lens attached, and there's enough room on either side for additional longer zoom lenses.

        The best part of this pack is the construction. It's very solid. The fastex buckles are all very stout....the stitching is very strong. Thick cordura like fabric with some nicely colored stitched in tamrac and Velocity 5 accents on the main flap. There is also a circle of reflective piping on the face of the pack, but it seems to be wearing off to some extent. The zippers are small, but seem to slide easily. The top flap has a dual pull zipper that opens a trap door to access camera without unhooking the large fastex buckle. Very nifty!

        I would disagree with Mike somewhat about rapid deploy....at least for packs of this kind. It slides around quite nicely and one can pull out camera quickly for a shot. The way I use it is with both the waist belt and the shoulder harness....either way it's still easy to spin around.

        If I had to make a comment remotely negative it would be the extra pockets. They're okay....mine didn't have the red tag system mentioned. The larger pocket of the three is fairly substantial and has room for a couple of sets of batteries or filters in separate sleeves. Attached to the main extra pocket is a half sleeve of flexible mesh that can hold something that doesn't slide around, but I wouldn't put anything critical in there. Tucked into the underside of the top flap is a long, but narrow zippered pocket for memory cards (will hold sd, but probably not the older compact flash if in their case). It is mesh with a clear plastic coating for water resistance. These pockets are definitely not a deal breaker, but considering the rest of the pack's strengths, they could have been a bit more substantial.

        All in all, this is by far the best pack I have ever used to carry my DSLR. It's compact but has plenty of room....esp. for entry level models.

            Great pack for the purpose. Have a Nikon D7000 and this pack holds the camera with a 70-300, 18-70 and a wide angle along with cell phone and 4 filters. Plenty of room and well padded.

              I originally ordered the Kata HC-14 bag and returned it because it was too stiff. This Tamrac bag is exactly what I was looking for. It's just the right size to carry my camera w/4" lense attached and to carry a flash and extra lense. It also has 2 pockets, 1 LARGE one if the front of the bag and 1 smaller one in the top part of the bag. Perfect bag for a day shoot!

                  This bag is not for the rapid deploy, speed demon. it's a casual, compact, low profile, camera bag.

                  It has enough room for my K7 with DA SMC 17-70mm stowed in the center bay, flash to the left 18-55mm on the right with a 2oomm M mount (not zoom old pentax telephoto lens) on top of that. a few cleaning supplies up front and spare SD cards. The strap that is on the bag has metal length adjusters that seem kinda cheap does not go with the bag so to speak, shoulder pad has padding sufficient enough for the weight in the bag. have not tried the waist belt. Color is a nice deep brown,with light brown insets, very subdued. It looks like a camera bag to me so, I suppose that's what it looks like to everyone else including the theives.
                  easy to carry.

Holds a camera with lens (Nikon 300 with 18-200 lens), additional lens (70-300 lens) and a flash. Also can carry exrta filters memorary cards, and a few other small items. Bag is designed for fast and easy access. Feels comfortable while biking or hiking. I would buy this item again.

                            This has been a fine bag, adequate to carry a full frame DSLR (Canon 5D), along with a medium size zoom lens, and hot shoe flash.

                            What I like best about the bag is that I can quickly access the camera while still mounted on my bicycle. This enables me to ride ahead of the group, then turn around and capture the other riders and the scene, then proceed.

                            The hip mounted mode is best for bicycle riding, as this allows the bag to be rotated around the body so that the camera is on front when in use, but stowed behind while moving. The outward folding flap is a good design.

                            As one other reviewer mentioned, it is a little bit hard to find the zipper and pull it. For this reason, I replaced the short zipper pulls with much longer red ribbons that work much quicker. The originals have about half an inch of ribbon, mine have three.

                            Comfort, padding and weight are all fine.

                            Excellent design and protection. A little smaller than what I expected.

                                I use this bag for shooting on location, mostly weddings. While I find that my gear is too heavy to carry just around my waist, I have taken to wearing the arm strap AND the waist strap at the same time. This keeps the bag secure on my body when I'm moving but distributes the weight between my shoulders and my waist. I am also able to quickly unlatch the waist, swing the bag to my front for easy access and put it back with very little difficulty.

                                I can fit a great deal inside. The movable padding allows you to use your imagination for packing.

                                I wish it came with a few more fabric loops for adding hooks, but Tamrac offers a lot of attachments. The water bottle attachment especially is a lifesaver. This is definitely a well made and useful bag for on the go, but not big enough to keep all your equipment all of the time.

                                This Tamrac Velocity 5x camera bag is just so perfect for my recently purchased Nikon D90. I've thoroughly checked Lowepro counterparts and even other Tamrac Velocity models, and this one just makes a perfect DSLR case - one that is versatile and well-fitting to a precious gadget like mine (D90 is a supreme!). I also would like to make mention of the style that accommodates the need for space of additional accessories that you need (lenses, flash, and other minute pieces. Indeed, this Tamrac Rocks!

                                  My 70-300mm zoom just fits along with two other lenses (one attached). A good all around size that travels well.

                                        The bag is very compact, yet holds all of my equipment and is very easy to use. The handy flip top flips away from you so you have quick easy access to the camera. The lenses are stored under the camera with plenty of padding and security. I would highly recommend this product for anyone looking to carry the camera and a few lenses in a compact case.
