Holds Camera Gear and Laptop

The Evolution 8 is perfect for a DSLR with up to an 8″ lens attached, several additional lenses, and a flash.  A foam-padded pocket in the back holds most 15.6″ screen laptops (up to 15″ x 10¼” x 1½” in size).  

Three Ways to Access Gear View

Photo gear can be accessed three different ways – through either side door when the pack is still worn over one shoulder or through the front door panel when the pack is removed.

Three Ways to Carry View

With their unique harness system, the Evolution backpacks can be carried three different ways – as a backpack or as a sling pack using a single strap worn over the right or left shoulder.

Convert From Backpack to a Sling Pack

To convert to a sling pack, simply cross-connect a single shoulder strap (red to red for carrying on the right shoulder or blue to blue for carrying on the left shoulder).  The other shoulder strap is easily tucked away in Tamrac’s Tuck-A-Way™ harness system.

Foam-Padded Top Compartment View

A foam-padded top compartment provides storage for a light jacket, lunch, or other photo accessories.  A mesh pocket in the back keeps small accessories separate and secure, while a Windowpane-Mesh™ pocket on the inside door panel holds additional small items.

QuickClip™ Tripod Attachment System View

A tripod is cradled (centered and balanced) securely with Tamrac’s QuickClip™ tripod attachment system while the lower Tripod Foot Pocket holds two tripod legs secure.

Side Pockets and Rain Cover View

Each side has a zipper-closing pocket for accessories like a phone or iPod. The right pocket contains a removable rain cover, which can be slipped over the pack during extreme weather.

  • Hands are busy? Smile By Barb Batten  

    I need my hands for taking pictures or keying data on the computer so I want a bag that will carry everything and leave my hands free. I seem to be a bit absent minded as well so if I can leave my equipment in the pocket of the nap sack that is one less lost lens to worry about! Smile

  • Amazing bag for near any shooting trip! By Nick Devost  

    It’s hard to find a genuinely sturdy backpack for anything now a days let alone a nice and strong bag for your camera and gear! This bag is fantastic for just that. Take it anywhere you need to take your camera and you’re set for a great day of shooting.

  • Love This Bag By Rick  

    I tripped once, landed on my side and this bag protected my gear. It’s well padded. The convenient side pockets made changing lenses easy while hanging from my shoulder. It holds a lot and I can walk around for hours with it on my back because it is that well balanced. I rarely notice the straps on my shoulders because of the nice padding. Not a single regret.

    My tripod is too long for the tripod holder which was made for the smaller ones. Borrowed my dad’s tripod for a weekend and tripod holder worked well enough. It did the job.

  • Pack it all in comfort By Jon  

    Tons of room and flexible storage. This bag is a great option for the traveler who wants to leave little behind without breaking their back. This is a landscape/wildlife photographers must have!

  • Lots of room By Kyle  

    This bag has a lot of room for everything that you need to take with you while on an adventure. It is also easier on your back as it has two straps that go across your chest and stomach. Fits truly everything but the kitchen sink.
