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.

  • astonishing camera backpack By omar  

    The evolution 8 is an amazing backpack, its not heavy and so easy to handle since it has the triple access systems. It’s easy to reach anything you want from your equipment in every section of the bag, plus that it can hold a 15.6” laptop. It is quite cool for photographers who love traveling and outdoor photography.

  • Greatest bag in the world! By Adam Dorn  

    I do landscape and wildlife photography. This bag is perfect for carrying everything I need and staying light! Carries my 4 lb tripod very well, along with 3 lenses and a camera. It fits all my filters, and camera accessories. Everything is so quick access that even as I am hiking I can get access to either my lenses or my tripod to quickly set up for a shot. I hiked with this around some tough terrain. This bag is built to last, and the rain fly that comes with it keeps me shooting rain or shine. If you have thought about buying one do it, you wont regret it!

  • laptop+camera+easy access from the side By Han C Wang  

    This bag is great for someone who carries a laptop and camera at the same time. Especially for those who wants fast access from the side of backpack to pull your camera out to shoot. Multiple pockets and rain cover are also thoughtful design.

  • Great bag! By Tim Kelly  

    I’m a big fan of the backpack style camera bag as I’m constantly moving around with my gear. This pack is very versatile and accessible with more than enough room for all my gear! I even get to edit and review on my laptop as there is a slot for it! Thanks tamrac!
