Nice Pack, not as easily accessible as I had hoped

Comments about Velocity 7z Pro Photo Sling Pack (Black/Gray):

I use the pack for my camera equipment. It is a streamlined pack and nicely slings over the shoulder or converts to a 'backpack'. The bag opens only from the top and although there are dividers to store lenses/accessories on top of one another, you can only access from the top and thus must hold/unpack those accessories on top to get to those stored on the bottom. I thought the pack had a front /larger opening to access lower stored items.

      Comments about Velocity 7z Pro Photo Sling Pack (Gray/Burgundy):

      The Tamrac Velocity 7z Pro is the perfect size to carry a mid-sized dSLR and 2 or 3 lenses plus extra batteries. The front zippered pouch accommodates other accessories and smaller items. Inside there is a padded sleeve for an iPad Air 2 sized tablet. The Velocity 7z is comfortable to carry over the shoulder or as a sling. This is my third Tamrac camera pack and each size is of top notch quality and build.

        I bought this bag to carry my Canon EOS 70D. It's perfect. The zippers are top notch -- glide easily, no sticking. Very comfortable to wear. Looking forward to using it in the field.

          Best sling bag I have ever used. I've looked at many others, Tamrac slings are the only ones that open on top and have two accressory loops for extra cases. Love the I-Pad space too.

            Comments about Velocity 7z Pro Photo Sling Pack (Black/Gray):

            I wanted the capacity of the traditional standard-issue camera bag but versatility (and disguise) of a backpack. This bag allows me to carry a point and shoot, a small HD video camera, my SLR, at least two lenses--plus it has a convenient slot for an iPad. The side pocket has more than enough room for 6 batteries, SD cards--you name it. Once it's thrown around the shoulder and strapped to the waist you really feel secure knowing your gear is that close to your person. The flip top has a zippered pocket that is handy for cleaning cloths, or SD cards as well, and easily opens away from the body allowing you to pull out your camera and shoot. You don't have to reach far for much as it's obvious a professional designed this roomy bag for the photographer on the run.

                  Use for general photography. Like the waist strap that keeps the bag from swinging around when walking. Very comfortable.

                  Comments about Velocity 7z Pro Photo Sling Pack (Black/Gray):

                  I do bird and nature photography and I wanted a bag that would carry my Canon 100-400 zoom, my EOS Rebel T3i and the 18-135 kit lens. This bag will carry the camera with either lens attached and the other lens as well with lens hoods on. There is still room for a small flash or small prime lens in the main compartment.
                  I like to carry the bag over one shoulder on my back but have the ability to quickly swing the bag to the front to access the other lens or small components such as cable release, lens cleaner, polarizing filter etc.
                  I would like this bag more if it had a lighter colored interior but this is a minor issue.
                  I also like the ability to attach lens cases or other pouches to the bag.
                  Before buying this bag, I spoke with a rep at Tamrac, she was very helpful in choosing a bag for my specific needs.
