I am a photojournalist who works internationally. I finally dumped my 17-year-old Tamrac bag and replaced it with this new one. The old bag was the same dimensions but the new bag has many smart and improved features inc.a back panel that allows one to slip your carry-on handle through the Tamrac bag so you don't have to sling it over your shoulder when hoffing through the airport.
Outstanding shoulder bag. Great size and plenty of room. This bag works better than a backpack.
Great bag. Nice size. A shoulder bag is better than a backpack for me. Well done.
I just want to share this story with you guys.
Back in 1972 when I was 20. I bought a Tamrac Bag after much discernment if i could really justify the cost. My girlfriend at the time who is now my wife said to me look at what you are putting into it.I bought the bag. I was a working Photographer most of my life of which i used the bag non stop since the day I bought it. i just replaced it with a new bag due to the zipper failing. I'm now 65 years old my wife bought me a new bag for my birthday. I read the heritage info that came with the bag and on it it says Tamrac's Heritage Founded in 1977 making carrying solutions for forty years. Well it's now 45 years. The bags are the best that's why I replaced it with the same kind that lasted 45 years, sorry but is will be the last one I will need .
Thanks for the Heritage product.
In the 1990's my Olympus IS-1 was kept securely in a Tamrac bag. Just last year, I discovered that bag and the IS-1, and both had seen better days. Fast forward to my new Olympus OM-D EM-1 Mk III and I had the obligation to renew the Tamrac love affair. The Stratus 15 is a serious advancement from my old Tamrac. My lenses are professional level, and the protected compartmentation of the Stratus gives me a high degree of reassurance. The shoulder bag is well conceived with durable water-resistant CORDURA material that, based on Internet research, is proven to protect. The additional pouches are welcomed accessories and there are numerous ways to organize the Stratus. The "Professional" label that adorns the top of the Stratus spells it out best. The Stratus is a serious version of Tamrac quality the likes I have never seen.
