Tamrac 5786 Evolution 6 User Reviews
The best of the slings
“After researching reviews for weeks I thought the KATA 123 G0-20 was the bag to get.I was looking at the Tenba sling as well. Upon going to a camera store and being able to see first hand how the bag was made, I quickly realized the Tamrac 5786 was A: better made; B: better padded;C:better designed. I’m 6-2 and not exactly a lightweight. The bag accommodates my size, can be carried any way you choose and holds a lot of gear. I can, if I choose, lug around the following: An E1 with grip, two digital lenses with hoods, 4 OMZ lenses, extra betteries, and the usual small extras.” – By John M. Lent
Fantastic and Functional Camera Backpack
“The straps are fully padded. Can be used as a backpack or as a sling bag. The straps can be stored and hidden in the back area which is part of the nicely padded back section. There are little cutout areas to slip the straps in when not in use. There is a padded handle at the top of the backpack. Comes in handy to grab the bag off the floor or simply carry around. I really like the access to the main camera compartment area. There are 3 zippered sections in this main compartment (lower half of the bag). One to access the camera from the side of the bag, one to access the accessories from another side, and one in the front of the bag to get a view of what’s in the bag…” – By S. Gable
“I like this sling back pack very much, good quality and easy to carry. The only negative comment I have is regarding the size of the bag and the top curve cut into [[ASIN:B003D5MZRK Tamrac 5786 Evolution 6 Photo Sling Backpack Bag (Black)) the front opening. The size of the pouches are small regardless of the configuration I make. I do have a problem putting in all the equipment I feel I need when going on a photo shoot. What it is forcing me to do is be more discriminating. I guess I should have bought the one size larger, however I did not want the size or the weight.” – By E. Flematti
