The brown/tan Rally 58 Hip Pack from Tamrac is a comfortable and efficient way to leave yourself hands-free while pursuing your photography. This pack offers you a way to carry minimal gear in a safe and secure manner while also leaving your hands free to hike, drink or make a phone call.
Rated to hold a DSLR with a 5.5" (14.0cm) lens attached in shooting position, it will also accommodate an extra lens such as most 75-300mm lenses and a flash. That's enough gear for a simple day trip with your family. The bag is designed to open away from your body which will give you rapid access to your camera as well as keeping roving eyes from seeing what's inside the bag. The internal divider is movable so you can create a perfect sized pocket for whatever gear you are carrying that day.
The sides contain two mesh pockets that are large enough to hold water bottles or your MP3 player, iPhone or similar sized electronics. Tripod straps will support a small tripod so you'll be able to shoot macro or evening shots. Inside, Tamrac has incorporated their exclusive Memory & Battery Management System that permits you to "code" your batteries or memory card with red flags so you can differentiate between new and used units.
The bag is carried by its waist belt that connects by a quick-release buckle or top carry handle. Side cinch straps offer additional help for stabilization. All in all, this water-resistant bag, with its strong zippered entry, front zippered pocket and overall slim profile is hard to beat when you need a waist pack. It's backed by Tamrac's five-year warranty.
