Tamrac 3380 Aero 80 Expert Reviews
ShutterBug reviews the Tamrac 3380 Aero 80 and writes;
“One very pleasing aspect of the bag is its weight. Some backpacks can add unnecessary poundage to your load. Not the Aero 80. At a bit over 2.5 lbs it can be lifted with one finger. And the external dimensions—9×12.5×18.5”—are well within carryon limits for the U.S.A. (45” total) and even match the limit of the most stringent airline we found, Aer Lingus at 9x14x18”. OK, it’s over a 1/2”, but I’d be surprised if that 1/2” is going to cause you problems.”

An excellent camera backpack
“I bought this backpack for a recent photographic assignment to India where I had to carry my laptop with me at all times. Overall, I am very impressed with it – and several people I was traveling with were also impressed enough that they were planning to buy the same backpack when they got back to the States.” – By Daniel J. Keeler
“I received this back pack a couple of weeks ago and took it with me on a trip to Vegas. I was very pleased with the construction, quality, and craftsmanship of the pack. The overall design works very well, and should provide plenty of equipment space for the average family photographer. My 17 inch laptop fit in there quite comfortably and the upper portion of the pack provided plenty of room for the power cord and few extras that I normally take along with me. I travel quite often and can safely say this bag will be my primary carry on from here on out. I highly recommend it. “ – By R. Gholson
good for small loads
“I like this overall. I’m a pro photographer and needed something that fits easily in overhead bins in planes. there’s enough room for 2 bodies, laptop, 2 hyperdrives, 5 lenses (med size), all my chargers, lots of batteries, a flash head, and some misc stuff. you have to get creative but you can get quite a bit in there. it’s probably not meant for what I use it for (primary bag) but it works well “ – By Dick Cheney
Good Price. A Tad small
“The bag is good looking. It is sturdy as ever, and I manage to fit two flash guns, three lenses (albeit the 70-200 does not go in the camera section with the rest of the kit and gets bunged in the main bag with the flash guns) Two camera bodies (30D and 20D), a Macbook 13″ laptop, charger, mouse, headphones, cables, and granola bars and the shoulder straps, and top handle don’t ever feel like they are going to give way under the weight.” – By Nigel R. Wallace
great bag good price
“If your looking for a great bag that you can carry your laptop, slr with -2-3 lenses, and some additional accesories look no further. I especially like that the bag when placed on the floor can stay upright and not fall over like most other bags. Laptop and SLR sections have their own compartments each well paded.” – By luk2004
“Great backpack & camera bag! I just used this while hiking and sightseeing in Hawaii and had no problem carrying a Cannon 40D. I used the top area for personal items (jacket, sunscreen snacks), the elastic side mesh area for water bottles and the other compartment for my 15 inch laptop and Kindle. The weight in the bag was distributed comfortably and it never felt heavy.” – By T Moe
Lots of Room
“This is the first camera backpack that I have bought, and it is everything I hoped it would be! I can fit my 7D with a 28-135, 50mm 1.4, and 75-300, an audio connection box, and a flash. All of that is just in the camera compartment, but then I can also easily fit my 15″ macbook pro and cables for that. Then still have room in the main compartment for a jacket, or really anything else you want…” – By Anthony A.
Tamrac 3380 Aero 80 Features & Specifications
The Aero 80 is a sleek and lightweight backpack designed for the SLR photographer with a digital SLR (such as Canon’s EOS 1D Series or Nikon’s D Series) with a grip and a 4″ lens attached, a couple additional lenses, a flash, accessories and a 17″ screen laptop. The completely foam-padded lower compartment protects photo equipment, while the large top compartment holds a light jacket, lunch or other necessary personal items. Inside the top, three mesh pockets keep AC adaptors and laptop cords organized.
A separate, completely foam-padded compartment with a water-resistant zipper provides quick access to most 17″ screen laptops (such as Apple’s 17″ MacBook Pro) without disturbing photo gear. Double zipper pulls allow quick access to photo gear while a weather flap provides weather protection. Inside the main compartment, foam pillars support the camera with lens attached, ready for action, while adjustable, foam-padded dividers protect other equipment. Two zippered pockets inside the main compartment organize filters, memory cards, and other accessories. A front mesh pocket and two mesh side pockets provide quick access to accessories and water bottles.
The comfortable, foam-padded backpack harness is contoured to distribute the weight of the camera gear across the shoulders. The harness also features Tamrac’s Strap Accessory System™ attachment points for customizing this pack with optional Tamrac S.A.S.™ products. Two lash tabs on the bottom allow a tripod to be carried (requires accessory straps, Model S-113, sold separately).
