Tamrac 5769 Velocity 9x User Reviews
Velocity 9x Pro Sling Bag
“It is very well made and I like the fact that the waist belt tucks away when not in use. It holds a bunch of stuff and will hold a pro body with a 70-200/2.8 mounted. It is nice to port around by the excellent Tamrac top handle and unlike the the Lowe Pro can be slung over just one shoulder. I like it’s compact dimensions. Wish it had a rain cover but a garbage bag works in a pinch. Overall the bag does as claimed…wear it low and loose and you can be ready to shoot in seconds…It’s a keeper!” – By Bart Star
Tamrac Creative Pack
“The Tamrac Velocity Sling Pack is extremely useful for photographers. I bought the largest capacity one, called 9x, and went to Italy with it, with my big digital camera. It sits very comfortably on your back, or on your side, and then all I need to do is slide it to the front to immediately access my camera. I never had to take it off, to access anything inside. It has a second compartment where my phone, my organizer, my Garmin navigator, wallet, etc…were. The whole thing is padded, and I can reorganize the velcro pads to my will. I use it all the time, even if I don’t carry the camera. Overall, a very good purchase.” – By Guy Tower
Tamrac Velocity 9 carry all bag
“I underestimated the Tamrac Velocity 9 bag when I got it. The bag felt awkward compared to the other Tamrac bags that I was use to. I normally use the Digital Pro 9 which is a top down bag that i strapped accessory bags to on both sides and pretty much could only handle a camera with a lens, an alternative lens, and a flash. When I first got the bag I placed it back to back with my other one and with the accessory bags connected they were roughly the same size. Although after I placed the camera and lenses in it I realized that it was big enough for me to carry a Nikon D200 with vertical grip, Nikon 70-200 vr, Nikon 18-200 vr, Sb800 flash, Nikon 50 1.8, Sigma 28-70 2.8 and two 20 ounce Mountain Dews. “ – By Donald Lhamon
Great Camara Bag
“Great value for the money. roomy two bodies (one with battery grip), four lens (one 70-200mm 2.8 one 24-70mm 2.8) room for two flashes, meter and extra goodies, need practice to balance the bag in the right shoulder but no problem, good size Great Price from Cameta Camera” – By R. Lorenzana
Great camera bag with lots of room
“I needed a bag that would allow me to carry my Canon XTi with battery grip, 70-300mm lens with hood, 28-135mm with hood (attached to the body), 50mm, 580EX flash, extra batteries for the camera and flash, memory cards, and various other small items. I also wanted a bag that would allow me to access the bag’s contents without putting the bag down. This bag has fulfilled all of my needs!!! My previous bag was a backpack style bag (which I love) where I could actually fit more in it but I could not access the bag’s content’s without putting the bag down. With the Tamrac Velocity 9x Sling Pack, I can VERY easily and quickly transition the bag from my back to my side and access the contents.” – By Kevin
Great bag for those large lenses
“The bag does what it’s supposed to do, hold everything you could need for your pro sized lenses. I also bought the attachment that goes on the side to fit a flash. A good addition as it allows you to put two more lenses in the bag. The sling is ok, a lot more comfortable then my over the shoulder bag. I wouldn’t say its 3 seconds (especially if you have the clips on), but I would say that it’s quick; mostly because the lens is attached. I would use this back for shorter outings or day outings. Things like weddings, parks, and street photography.” – By Keven Alvarado
Great bag for the price
“This bag is surprisingly big. I can put my Nikon D700 with MB-D10, 70-200 VR, 300 f4, plus a flash or smaller lens inside. The way the bag opens at the very top and toward the body make it so easy to access. The bag is also very comfortable to carry. I actually like to use it like a shoulder bag. I wear it on the right should, left should, cross shoulder from the left, cross shoulder from the right. All work fine for me.” – By Eric
Great Bag for Hiking and Shooting
“I already had the Velocity 6x and felt very comfortable with it. However I needed much more room when I moved up to a DSLR and three additional lenses. I also needed room for the ever present extra “stuff”. I like to carry a Canon IS 3 as a backup camera. This bag has the same lay out as the smaller sizes, the same excellent quality and accommodates my DSLR, my back up camera, all the lenses, extra batteries for both cameras, and the usual “stuff” like a cell phone etc…” – By Patrick J.

Tamrac 5769 Velocity 9x Features & Specifications
The Velocity 9x – Pro Sling Pack is the largest version of our popular sling packs. It holds a pro digital SLR with a grip (such as Canon’s EOS 1D Series or Nikon’s D Series) and a 70-200mm zoom lens attached.

The Velocity 9x can be carried comfortably like a backpack, but when swung around to the front, the secure zippered Quick Flip Top opens away from the body for fast and convenient access to camera gear. A well-padded sling strap comfortably distributes the weight, but need not be removed to quickly access photo equipment. A Tuck-A-Way™ waist belt allows the Velocity 9x to be used comfortably during vigorous activities such as hiking or biking.
The front pocket has organizer pockets inside to keep a mobile phone, PDA or photo accessories within easy reach. It also features Tamrac’s US-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. Customize this sling pack with Tamrac’s Modular Accessory System™ components.
