Tamrac 3385 Aero Speed Pack 85 User Reviews
A very useful and practical bag
“I really like this camera bag. It is very practical. I ordered a 3375, without the computer compartment, and then exchanged it with a 3385, with the computer compartment. I don’t really carry my computers that much in this bag. However, the computer compartment can carry tour books etc. Additionally, this bag can take a bigger lens than the 3375. You can read other reviews for more detailed info. The side pocket zipper has not been a problem for me. So, I like this bag very much so far.” – By Breezy Bring
Excellent Hiking Camera Backpack
“I ordered this camera pack as I do a lot of hiking and needed something to carry all my camera gear safely. For hiking, the back is very comfortable with padded straps and the area of the pack that rests against your back is also padded due to the laptop compartment. The interior is also well padded to protect your equipment which is essential for hiking. The bottom of the pack is hard plastic with padding inside and stands upright when you set it down. There is plenty of storage for equipment. I have a Nikon D5000 with a regular lens and also a 300mm lens, filters for both lenses, extra battery, and all the cables.” – By Nut Ball
“The kata did not look to have enough sectioned space, the computrekker was very heavy 7lbs and odd looking. the compurover looked better. I decided against the adventure 9 because the camera space was too small and people complained about the bottle holder on the side. So it was primarily between the compurover and the aero 85. The deciding factor was the easy access side entry vs having to open the whole front face of the bag. The feature is actually really nice and does work…” – By A. Chen
Good pack for hiking with a lot of gear
“Thats when I settled on the Tamrac 3385. It has a huge amount of space (without being overly cumbersome), looks like an average backpack, and allows quick access to either my ready-to-go camera, or my lens. I do have to set it down on the ground or another surface to access the spare lens, but so far no one has come up with a better solution. The shoulder straps are comfortable and the two zipper design is sufficient. “ – By Bob
Perfect camera bag for day trips
“Overall, it’s a great bag for day trips and can easily fit all your essential equipment. The side access is perfect for when you don’t want to carry the camera around your neck/shoulder all the time. The zippers were fine as well – it’s not super smooth and has a bit of tension but it’s not as bad as some reviews make it out to be. If you like the specs and looks of the bag and are still deciding, I would highly recommend giving this bag a try.” – By T. Tozawa
Great backpack to hold EVERYTHING
“I really do like the backpack. It held my Canon T1i, 4 lenses, charger and etc just fine in the main compartment. The easy side access was great because I didn’t have to put the backpack down to take a picture. The laptop case is roomy, although my laptop is tiny. I kept a laptop and 4 magazines in the laptop pocket. The top compartment for misc other items held my snacks, knife, keys and etc… My water bottle (or GatorAid) traveled in the side mesh pocket, and that worked well.” – By BigWave
A perfect DAY PACK style backpack for DSLR owners
“This bag is perfect for the use I had envisioned. It’s comfortable enough for regular day use. I would reconsider this bag if you were going to be wearing it on long hikes totally packed down or something, as the straps are a bit narrow and there is not a full harness. Walking to buses or cars and so forth is fine, though. Even short hikes are fine.” – By Z. JENSEN
Good Camera Pack at a Good Price
“The build quality on this bag is the same as my older one … excellent. Construction is heavy canvas with double stitching at stress points. Overall construction/appearance is high quality, well built and rugged. There is plenty of room for my Sony A350 with Super WA Zoom as well as three additional lenses. I also am able to fit my Sony HDTV video cam in the main compartment, along with my Sony flash. It’s important to note that none of this stuff is crammed together … it is a comfortable, snug fit so that the items can be easily removed but don’t get bounced around.” – By The Big Guy
Fits my need perfectly
“The laptop pouch easily handles my bulky 15″ laptop. The side pocket is absolutely amazing and is my favorite feature. I love the ability to sling the bag and grab my camera within a few seconds. The mesh pocket on the other side was great for a water bottle. I never had a problem with the bottle falling out as someone else mentioned. The top storage pocket isn’t that big. I’d say it could barely fit a cantaloupe-sized object. Maybe a poncho, snack, and a book/map.” – By CelticBrewer
