The gray/burgundy Velocity 8x Pro Sling Pack from Tamrac opens up a world of shooting possibilities for you. It's rated to hold your Pro DSLR with a grip and 8" lens attached, two extra lenses, flash and 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. There's also a unique Tuck-A-Way Waist Belt that can be rapidly deployed when you go hiking or ride your bike. The belt adds significant stability to the pack by preventing it from shifting around while you're active. 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 8x 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 2 lb, the Velocity 8x combines the advantages of both a backpack and sling pack and can make your shooting more expeditious and fun.

        Comments about Tamrac Velocity 8x Pro Sling Pack (Gray/Burgundy):

        I originally bought Velocity 8x but it was bit small to carry my Canon 7D with a battery grip along with (3) lenses (16-35mm, 24-70mm, and 70- 200 mm) and a flash (580 EX2). I ended up purchasing Velocity 10x . If you don't have the battery pack and multiple lenses it is a good sturdy carry pack. On 10x I still have a plenty of room after putting aforementioned gear. So, if you are looking to expand your current equipment, you might as well spent a little extra to get 10x.

                I bought this bag for my husband who has a Cannon SLR and to large lens. Everything fits great and there is room for a flash when he gets one. My step daughter had the smaller version and it is held up well to hiking, site seeing, etc. Tamrac makes well built products.

                Comments about Tamrac Velocity 8x Pro Sling Pack (Gray/Burgundy):

                Being smaller, this bag holds lenses and camera body snugly, which I like. The adjustable velcro tabs inside allow for long and short lenses to be stored according to their needs. The outside pocket is perfect for accessory equipment that I don't want rattling around inside the bag with camera and lenses. Nicely padded in all of the right places. I just wish I could switch the single across the body strap to go over my RIGHT shoulder, not just the LEFT!
