Tamrac G32 overview

  • 1Description

While storing, protecting and transporting your gear you can look as upscale as your photography with the dark olive G-Elite 32 Backpack from Tamrac. This backpack features attractive styling, fabrics that bespeak luxury and craftsmanship in league with fine luggage. However, unlike high-end luggage, your G-Elite 32 Backpack is designed with the photographer in mind and will hold a gripped DSLR with an up to 18" long lens attached, multiple additional lenses, flash unit, and related accessories. In addition, the pack has a dedicated compartment for an up to 15" laptop or tablet. Organizing gear is easy with the touch-fastening, padded dividers, interior and exterior mesh pockets, M.O.L.L.E attachment points with quick-hook side straps and exterior tripod/monopod carrying configurations. Although this pack is fairly stealthy; photographers will be happy the main compartment is lockable.

Well-made, your G-Elite 32 Backpack has riveted handles, YKK RC-FUSE zippers with WR coating, large color-coded zipper pulls, touch-fastening strap keepers and fail-safe shoulder strap buckles. Knowing photographers on the go frequently have to travel by plane, the pack fits most commercial airplane overhead compartments. Of course, it's always prudent to check with your carrier for specific requirements that may fluctuate. The pack is easily carried with the stowaway harness, removable waist belt, and handles. And while on location, you can stay hydrated by storing your water bottle in the convenient water bottle pocket. A versatile pack, there's also an expandable exterior mesh pocket, custom-fit dust bag for storage, and a rain cover that doubles as a ground cloth. Made of 420D and 100D diamond nylon w/2x PU backing and other tough materials, your G-Elite 32 Backpack is both strong and durable.

    Tamrac G32 reviews

    G-Elite 32 Backpack (Dark Olive) is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product with some problems I have recently purchased this backpack from here and would like to just write a few words about it as I have not yet found a singe review of it anywhere on the web. I purchased the G32 after I had purchased the Ultimate Photographers Bag MK-III from Inside Line Equipment. My requirements were that my Backpack can carry my photo gear as well as my personal belongings on a daily basis and while traveling and these are the only two bags I found that would actually do it and fit all of my gear. I will get to what I have with me later on, so just bear with me for a bit here. Of course, they had to be carry on compatible and this bag just barely is. The reason I returned the other backpack to ILE was, that for the price tag it had, it was not made well enough. The problems were that the bag had velcro on every and any port besides the one zippered laptop compartment in the back. This means that it is terribly loud to open anything up which can be a problem and of course that if you open and close things often, the velcro will break down relatively quickly. Also there was no way to store small items because it was just the compartment for the photo gear and one large compartment for personal items. Done! Those two problems along with several more, which I won't get into now because this review should be about the G32, is why I came to buy the G32. The materials of this backpack are great and it looks and feels as you would expect from a product in this price category. It is a pretty large bag, but not overly so, considering what you can fit inside! I like all of the small compartments that are on every flap inside of the backpack. They make it very easy to keep everything organised. One of the reasons I got this bag was the butterfly opening system so that I could get my personal belonging on one side and not expose all of my photo gear when I just want to access that and vice versa. The problem is that the laptop compartment is in the front compartment of the backpack! This means that once the laptop is in the bag, the butterfly trick will no longer work! It also means that the laptop (or in my case just an iPad pro) is relatively far away from your back. Also owning a 15 MacBook Pro, I know the weight of that thing and the leverage that will create so far out on the bag is not nice... Considering the weight of all my gear, which is substantial even though I have compact stuff, the second point is in a way not so bad because the bag is heavy anyways. Of course it sucks to make something already heavy feel even heavier, but alright. But what really gets me is that they actually ruined the butterfly opening with the placement of the laptop compartment! Who designs this stuff? The 10 year old son of the owner?! That was a bit harsh as the rest of the design is really great, but you get the point. Another small problem with the bag is the zippers and that clip at the top in the middle. This clip is supposed to help keep the main compartment from opening completely when you are using that butterfly mechanism. The problem here is that you have 2 zippers (with holes for a lock) and now you have to decide what to do: Place both zippers on one side of that clip so they close all the way, but every time you want to open the other side of the bag you must first open the clip to allow the zipper to pass. Or you can place a zipper to either side of that clip and just live with them not fully closing, which also means that you can't lock your bag if you wanted to do that. The gear I have in the Bag: Sony A7ii, Sony SEL90M28G, SEL55F18Z, SEL35F28Z, SEL28F20, SEL075UWC, SEL057FEC, 2 Yongnuo YL560 III, 1 YN 560-TX flash controller, batteries for the flashes and camera, battery charger for the camera, filters and filter holder for all of my landscape filters and a cleaning kit for my sensor and lenses. I have also purchased a MeFoto GlobeTrotter tripod which I will bring along on the outside of my backpack. The only other major things I carry with me are my iPad pro and a 64 OZ insulated clean canteen water bottle. All of that with some other small stuff fit very easily into the backpack and I still have some room left for a small jacket or whatever else. All in all I am pretty happy with this backpack and will keep it as it looks (there is no alternative anyways!). But Tamrac definitely needs to do some wore work to make this product perfect (which is what I expect when I pay the kind of money this thing costs!). I hope this helped some people to make the right decision!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is close to the perfect bag for me. I shoot mostly wildlife, equine and landscape. Occasionally I will do an event. This bag allows me to carry all the various items needed as I encounter the unexpected. I am a little unsure how well it will work for flying as I have been on some planes that I know the overhead will not accommodate this size nor will under the seat. Larger planes will be fine but when transferring to a smaller, commuter plane I may have a problem. However, I am very pleased with the construction, style, formatting capability of the interior and mostly it's ability to accommodate what I need.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Step forward, step backward I have a Bataflae 32L and think it is a great bag. So great, when the new G32 came along I jumped at the chance to get an improved bag. Improved - well sort of, but also a step back. The full butterfly opening for the main compartment and the outer pocket is an improvement. Perhaps so is the fabric. Gura Gear, now Tamrac, claims it is water resistant and the zipper are better. Time will tell .. The harness system is the same except that the clip to hold the strap on the waist band to the main compartment is plastic hook that goes through a web loop. ON my first bag the loops were too small. ON the second bag they are not much better, but they are better. The clips on the Bataflae were much better. Also the inserts are too long. As they arrived they were S shaped. Straight would have nice so that they don't take up too much extra space.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Holds everything I use three cameras on most outings and prefer to have my lens attached before going into the field. This bag safely holds all of the equipment I use: such as a mirrorless camera with a 24-240 mm lens attached, another mirrorless camera with a 16-35 mm lens attached, and a DSLR camera with a 70-300 mm lens attached. I have 1/4 of the bag remaining for other gear, plus the front and side pouches. I could attach a 150-600 mm lens to the DSLR camera instead and still have room for equipment. The weight is well distributed and feels so much lighter than my previous pack. I am a standard weight and height woman with arthritis. I have no difficulty swinging the pack in place unassisted. I don't do any back country trips but I will hike several miles off road for photography. The appearance of the backpack does not convey I am carrying photo gear. I love being able to conceal the straps of the backpack into their pocket when I travel especially when I fly. I have not flown yet but the dimensions are the same as a suitcase I have been placing under a seat on past flights. I have used the rain cover and it worked as expected and with ease. I did not give it a 5th star because a tripod is just strapped on and there are only two side pouches. I like extra small pockets for small items to keep close at hand without the inconvenience of opening the pack. I would give it 4.5 stars if that were a choice.
