Great Form Factor
“I’ve had this bag for about a year. I love the messenger bag form factor and the wide strap. It’s really inconspicuous when walking around Manhattan. There’s plenty of room. Enough room that I have packed up to three bodies (D70, FM3A, and a canonet rangefinder), 3 lenses (one attached to one of the bodies), a large speedlight (nikon sb-24), and I still have room to carry a book or two as well as several rolls of film. Of course I never carry that much on a normal day out, but I can fit it all if necessary. “ – By K. Bae
“I have a Nikon D70, an extra lens, a Nikon 650 Flash unit and a few cords, manuals, batteries, tripod attachments, etc. The Tamrac Velocity 3 Messenger bag is a perfect fit for my equipment. I love the placement of the camera in the bag which allows for quick and easy access as well as a fast and safe return back to the bag. While the bag is much bigger than what I had before, I now only have one bag instead of three and all of my equipment is with me at all times. Two thumbs up!” – By Thomas L. KUNZ
Perfect Camera bag
“This is the perfect camera bag. I have been searching for quite awhile for a bag that would fit my needs. Whether I’m traveling or just taking my camera for some quick pictures, I like to have my camera, an extra lens, and my personal belongings I would normally carry in my purse, all in one bag… This bag gives me plenty of room for all of my equiptment plus personal belongings without making me feel like I am lugging around an entire suitcase. The different sizes it comes in makes it perfect for everyone!” – By Darcey L. Chambers
