Great Bag To Carry Complete Kit
“Finally, a shoulder bag that can hold my 70-200mm lens! This bag is built high rather than wide, so it only holds one row of equipment, but it still holds plenty. I keep my 70-200 lens, a 50mm lens, my camera with 24-70mm lens attached, and two flashes in the main compartment and all my assorted accessories in the front pockets. The bag is extremely sturdy, and well built. Be forewarned, though, this is not a light bag once you put all your gear in it. The thickly padded shoulder strap helps a lot, but it can only do so much to relieve your shoulder of the weight.” – By Haksaeng
Slim but plenty big enough, mate
“this bag has been further than I have.But back to the bag, it is superb. After taking the time to set the moveable petitions I have everything packed in safe and sound. That is Canon 7D, 24-70mm 2.8, 70-200mm 2.8, 11-16mm 2.8 and 100mm 2.8 macro. Sliding down one side is my 580 EX and filters, card reader and so on. Basically everything I own can fit in. But wait there’s more my 16″ laptop also has a padded compartment at the back of the bag, which is not shown on the images associated with the bag. But it does fit and all that gear adds up to a lot of weight. But it is nice weight. The strap is comfortable and as good as you can get with this style of bag.” – By Steve the Aussie

Tamrac 5617 Ultra Pro 17 Features & Specifications
The Ultra Pro 17 is ideal for the professional photographer carrying two DSLRs with lenses up to 9″ long attached, 3-4 additional lenses, flashes, accessories and a 15.4″ laptop.
This briefcase-style bag holds camera gear in a vertical orientation for a slim profile. The Ultra Pro 17 holds two pro bodies with lenses attached, flashes, as well as the three most popular zoom lens sizes – a wide angle, a standard zoom, and a telephoto zoom (such as most 70-200mm f/2.8 zoom lenses). The foam-padded main compartment protects camera gear, while a rigid plastic platform in the bottom provides shock protection. A separate, completely foam-padded rear pocket with a plastic reinforced bottom protects up to a 15.4″ screen laptop. The Total Coverage Top combines the security of a zipper with the convenience of quick-release buckles and fast-access hook and loop closures.
The top also features a Speed Pocket™ for fast access to accessories and personal items. Two ZipDrop™ front pockets feature Windowpane-Mesh™ and paraphernalia pockets to visibly organize accessories. The front pockets also feature Tamrac’s U.S. patented Memory & Battery Management System™ that uses red flags to identify available memory cards and batteries from ones that are used up. A smooth nylon pocket inside the top keeps other accessories secure. The Piggy-Back Pocket™ zips open to allow the bag to be slipped over the handle of rolling luggage. An EasyGrip™ carrying handle with a torsion bar stabilizer strut in the top helps distribute the weight of your equipment.
The bag can also be carried with the heavily padded BioCurve™ shoulder strap that features attachment slots for our Strap Accessory System™ (S.A.S.™) products to customize this large pro bag to perfectly fit your needs. A removable M.A.S.™ Rain Cover is included to protect camera gear in extreme weather. When not needed, the Rain Cover can be removed and replaced with another M.A.S.™ accessory, like a water bottle or a lens case. Straps on the front of the bag allow a tripod to be attached and carried.
