The Finest Fabrics

We pride ourselves in constructing our bags out of the finest materials available that are guaranteed to wear exceptionally well for years to come. Two examples of such fabric are PowerGrid™ Cordura® from Dupont Corporation and PowerGrid nylon with Spectra® from Allied Signal Corporation. This PowerGrid weave creates a material with extraordinary tear strength. Cordura nylon has set the standard in high performance fabrics in outdoor, industrial and military applications. PowerGrid Cordura is created for us with a three-ply woven grid of Cordura fiber woven into Cordura fabric. This PowerGrid weave adds significant strength to this already super-strong material. A double waterproof internal coating assures weather proofing.

PowerGrid™ Nylon Lining

The inside linings of nearly all our camera bags are of a smooth, weatherproof, lightweight nylon that does not collect dust or lint. We use linings that are light in color to make it easier to find equipment in low light.

Ballistic Nylon

Ballistic Nylon was named “Ballistic” because it is used in conjunction with Kevlar® to make bullet proof vests. Although it is extremely tough, it has a remarkably smooth texture so it is not abrasive and does not collect dirt or lint. We use ballistic nylon in our industrial cases like our Rolling StrongBoxes™ and also in our Digital Series products.

PolyTek™ is smooth, very tightly woven, extremely strong and double coated to provide superior weatherproofing. It is used in most of our 5000 Series Products.

Thick, Closed-Cell and Open-Cell Foam Protection

Our camera bags and packs are lined with thick, closed-cell foam for the very best shock protection and open-cell foam for vibration dampening.

ABS Plastic Platforms & Construction

Our larger bags, cases and backpacks receive extra protection from a bottom platform of tough ABS plastic, the same plastic used in football helmets. Our rolling strongboxes and studios are fully protected with custom fitted ABS top, bottom and side construction.

Windowpane-Mesh™

A Tamrac innovation developed in the early eighties, Windowpane-Mesh™ combines clear vinyl and nylon mesh for film and accessory pockets. This securely holds small gear and accessories while allowing you to know what’s in each pocket at a glance.

ToughTek™ Mesh

The mesh accessory pockets of our backpacks are constructed with ToughTek™ mesh, a coated mesh that holds accessories in view yet is strong enough to take abuse on the roughest expeditions.

We use high quality, self-healing nylon coil zippers in all of our products (except vests). When zippers are used in extreme situations, the importance of self-healing coil cannot be over emphasized. In major openings and pockets we use ZipClip™ zipper pulls for quick access.

d snap copy copy MaterialsHardware

Tamrac products are engineered with the finest hardware application for each task. We were the first company to use side release buckles on camera bags (almost 20 years ago) and our Easy Squeeze™ buckles have received world-wide acclaim. We are the only camera bag company to use welded, heavy duty Double Bar D Rings that never turn sideways and ultra-strong metal snap-hooks for security.

Workmanship

For over thirty-five years we have built our reputation on legendary quality. Our workmanship and quality are the combination of excellent sewing and product engineering that is reinforced with the finest materials, threads, findings. We know how to make it right the first time.
