Innovative Camera Carrying Systems Since 1977

Tamrac was founded in southern California by outdoor enthusiasts who loved nature photography. The name Tamrac was created to reflect the rugged outdoors. A pine tree found in the American wilderness inspired the name and we carry that heritage proudly today.

Tamrac has been built through innovation like our Dual- and Triple-Access Systems™, wing accessory pockets, sling packs, Memory and Battery Storage System™, Dual Foam Technology™, Piggy Back Pocket™, windowpane mesh™, Lens-Bridge® and Lens-Gate® divider systems, and Tuck-A-Way™ hip belts. We introduced the first tele-zoom pack in the late 1970's and every holster style camera bag on the market is based on this original Tamrac design. 

Although we have a solid heritage to build upon, we are never done improving.
