Just the right bag for
“getting around town. Bought this messenger style bag to compliment a huge backpack style camera bag. The Tamrac Adventure is large enough to fit my Sony Alpha A100, a 70-300mm telephoto lens, the 18-70mm kit lens attached and a 50mm prime. I also throw in a flash. There is plenty enough room for media cards, cellphones or a PDA. With all this, the bag does not weigh too much and everything fits snug, but not too tight. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for an around the town style bag.” – By Royston

Easy to carry and not too cramped
“Looked at a few different Tamrac bags and settled on this one. It has plenty of room for my Nikon D80, 50mm, 18-200, Speedlight SB-600, and all the extra cards and batteries. Even with all this in there it is not cramped and has a little room to spare. Though don’t let this lead you to think the bag is huge. It’s not a bag you’d buy for a compact camera, but it’s size makes it easy to sling over your shoulder and feel like it doesn’t get in your way or is too heavy.” – By J. P. Marth

Tamrac Messenger Camera Bag
“Well designed bag. Looked at the Crumplers but decided that the Tamrac bag was more economical. The Tamrac had all the features I needed and was the right size. We have a Nikon D80 with two lenses ( 18-135 and 70-300), an SB800 flash and camera accessories. There is still room for a few more items, like a small digital camera and/or a small video camera. The padded dividers that come with the camera bag allow you to create about 5 or 6 chambers, plus you have exterior and side pockets.” – By T. S. Martinez

fantastic bag
“I absolutely love this bag. I had a conspicuous camera bag before and I was looking for something more subtle but still functional. This bag very roomy and the reconfigurable compartment pads are convenient for customizing it. There are lots of little pockets for storage of misc stuff. I was concerned that as a single strap sling-type bag it would be awkward to carry while riding a bike, but it’s perfectly fine. Bottom line is that the bag looks good, works great, is inconspicuous as a camera bag, and is on the cheaper side of the spectrum. It’s a great buy and I would definitely get it again.” – By Joseph M. Grogan

Great Bag
“This is a great bag! It has held and protected all my camera gear so far. It fits my D40, 18-55 kit lensm 50mm f/1.8, and my SB-28 (old but an upgrade is coming soon!). I recently ordered a Sigma 70-200 f/2.8,so I have now accumulated enough stuff that I will be in need of a larger backpack when I want to take all my gear with me. This bag will still be used when I need a more casual/professional looking bag, when a backpack should not really be used.” – By Matthew R. Dale

Waterproof saved my day
“If you have this bag and turn on your bathroom shower and walk in with it, then you’ll have an idea of what I put it through. When I finally got to my car I unlatched it and opened it up to find my camera and lenses all perfectly dry. YAY! Inside the front zipper pouch… my battery charger and usb adapters… dry! YAY! Unzipped the front (top) flap pouch… my micro fiber clothes and remote… SOAKED!!! Apparently that section is not waterproof. The back section also has a small zipper pouch but I never put anything in there.” – By Ari

Great bag. Not so comfy
“I really like this bag. I use it to shoot for a college paper, and have adjusted the inside to fit a 20D with 28-105 attached, a 50/1.8, and two of the following: 20-35mm, 70-200 2.8IS, flash, and small film body. Plus there’s lots of room for accessories. I’ve noticed little things as well that make this back great, like how the little space for pens, the pocket that perfectly holds a small notebook, and a cell phone pocket always right by my left hand (a photojournalists dream!)” – By G.

Good looking bag at great price
“I was looking for a lighter weight bag for days I don’t want to carry my entire backpack. I first purchased the Lowepro Nova 170AW, and while the features and size were great, I couldn’t help but feel like I had an insulated lunch cooler around my shoulder. The Tamrac looks inconspicous and is a great size for comfortably carrying my big Canon 50D with lens on, a couple of additional lenses, flash, filters, etc.” – By Scott J. Solberg

Fantastic, Unnoticeable DSLR Case
“I bought this because I wanted a case that didn’t look like a camera case, and I got just that. I could walk down the street and no one would think differently that I had a camera, or just papers inside of it. It is smaller than your typical messenger bag, but for someone like me who doesn’t like to carry a lot of stuff around: it works great…” – By J. Uden

Happy with new camera bag
“I a new Nikon D5000 and needed a camera bag for it. After a lot of looking and research, I settled on the Tamrac Adventure Messenger 4 DSLR Camera Bag (Red/Black). It is a BIG bag, so if you are looking for something little this is not it :D. I really like all the little Velcro movable walls to customize the compartments. I can fit my camera with a small lens on it, and extra telephoto lens, a charger, a lens cleaning kit, and still have room for more all in the main body of the bag. The outside pockets have tons of little compartments nad pockets that can hold all kinds of batteries, memory cards, pens, cell phone, and tons more.” – By Mom to 4 farm girls
