Tamrac 5248 Adventure 8 User Reviews
“I just received this bag as a gift. It’s perfect. I own a Canon AE1, a standard 50mm, a 25-80mm, and a 75-300mm (lenses). This bag fits it all EASILY, including rolls of film, cleaning materials, my wallet, cellphone, keys, and other such items. Also, I feel like it definitely keeps my equipment safe from the elements and packed neatly in a padded enclosure. Plus, it’s very convenient to have a backpack (I used an over-the-shoulder strap bag before, which always got in the way) The backpack stays out of my way so I can concentrate on the picture I’m taking. This is a great deal too.” – By A. Wood
“Without a doubt this backpack made the trip a joy. I was able to carry a Nikon CP990, an SLR with an extra lens, a Lomo LC-A, all my filters, film, maps, a bottle of water, keys, passports, etc. It all fit it. And while the backpack may have felt heavy to lift, on my back it didn’t cause any difficulty wearing it for extended periods of time. I love it, it feels great on my back and can carry more things than I need to. I now use it at home to carry all my stuff around. The rebuildable compartments are perfect. The greatest thing is that it just looks like a regular backpack.” – By M. Warren
This backpack is great for certain types of use
“I have owned this camera backpack for over a year, and used it on trips and a few day hikes. (Mine is green, which I prefer over the black.) I like it when used certain ways, but am thinking I need a more complete backpack or go back to my briefcase-style carrier for those trips where I want to be more fully equipped and be changing lenses and filters frequently. Features I like are: its pockets and mesh compartments are handy and hold a lot (many are accessible from the outside for quick access), it has enough straps (chest, sternum, and nicely padded shoulder) to ride very comfortably, it has plenty of padded section pieces inside, it includes straps to fasten a small tripod underneath..” – By A Customer
Great Bag For the Price
“For limited photoshoots; vacations or a casual backpack bag to carry a limited load of camera equipment the Adventure 8 is a GREAT purchase. It’s convenient as a carrier bag for modest amounts of equipment. Perfect size allows me NOT to tempt fate by carrying backbreaking loads. Paired up with my roller laptop computer bag and backpack – I’m only looking like a minor uber-geek road warrior when on vacation. “ – By Michael Horn
A well-crafted bag that suits many needs
“Tamrac’s Adventure 8 backpack is well suited for all sorts of day trips. The bag has a padded compartment for camera equipment, a main compartment suitable for holding a variety of goodies, and an assortment of smaller nooks and compartments for holding the rest of your gear. The Tamrac website boasts that the padded compartment has the capability to hold a camera body, 3 lenses of varying size, and a flash. While this is essentially true (assuming one of your lenses is attached to your camera body), squeezing that much gear would be a tight fit. I generally carry a camera body, a table-top tripod, and either 2 extra lenses or a lens and the flash.” – By D. Bjorgen
