Tamrac 5765 Velocity 5x User Reviews
Just the right size
“I’m planning on traveling with my new Nikon D300 and want to take along my Nikon 18-70mm lens, 70-300mm VR lens, and 50mm lens. I’m happy to report that all three lens and the camera fit snugly into the main body of this great bag. I’ll probably keep the 18-70 on the camera although it does work with the 70-300 on camera — just a little tighter fit when I zip the lid closed. The front pocket can be used for personal items and can even fit my SB600 flash. The top opens away from my body – a feature that I find makes it much easier to remove the camera. “ – By S. Maughan
Draws no attention
“I use it with my Canon 5D, 15 fisheye, 50 1.4 and 70-300DO and 430ex flash. It all fits! I’ve used it at zoo’s, sporting events and family gatherings with no attention gathered b/c of it’s small size. I use the waist straps for street photos and shoulder strap around my chest in airports. “ – By Gray 4 Wisdom
Great for a Nikon D200 + 18-200 VR + SB 600
“Just returned from a trip to Cancun. High quality product. Enough space for my Nikon D200 with Nikon 18-200 VR, and accesories: Nikon SB600 (OmniBouncer attached) + Spare camera battery + Battery Charger + Flash extra batteries (4 AA) + 2 CF + Lens cleaner. Almost everything I needed. Gave 4 stars because not completely comfortable using it with the attached belt, it slip down a little (some rubber dots will help to prevent that) so you have to put it TIGHT !! Will recommend it to a friend. “ – By Carlos Manuel Sanchez Mack

Tamrac 5765 Velocity 5x Features & Specifications
The high performance and versatile Velocity 5x – Photo Hip Pack Convertible doesn’t look like a camera bag, but it holds and protects a digital SLR with zoom lens attached up to 5″ long, additional lenses and a flash. Inside the main compartment, the camera with lens attached is suspended on two vertical, foam-padded dividers. It converts from a shoulder bag to a hip pack with the Tuck-A-Way™ hip belt (adjusts to 53″). Cinch straps on the hip belt help stabilize the pack.
For fast and convenient access to camera gear, the Quick Flip Top™ opens away from the body. The front pocket has organizer pockets inside to keep a mobile phone, PDA or photo accessories within easy reach. It also features Tamrac’s patented Memory & Battery Management System™ that uses red flags to identify available memory cards and batteries from ones that are used up. A pocket inside the lid stores filters and lens caps.
Add Tamrac’s optional accessories using the attachment slots for our Strap Accessory System™ (S.A.S.™) and Modular Accessory System™ (M.A.S.™) products to customize this high performance hip pack to perfectly fit your needs.
