Tamrac 709 Pro Convertible User Reviews
Great Case, will last for years
“Padding is 1/4 in beneath the ballistic nylon. Hard bottom so case retains shape. Tripod straps on bottom front, never used them after trying, was uncomfortable. Top closes via a zipper and then an outer layer you can clip closed for added protection. Worth the money because even though I have gone through 4 camera systems (Canon EOS 1n – EOS Mark II) the case still is in great condition. Would recommend you buy a separate hip sling for ENG shoots.” – By Mark
Long lasting is understatement
“I have used it with two 35 mm outfits traveling, Also had a Pentax 6×7 system and a spare Leica R system packed inside along with medium sized binoculars. Tripod straps on the bottom do work great. Paired with the main strap and fanny strap, you can hike up steep terrain and scree rock just great. Plenty of room for accessories, two padded quick access side car pouches can be over stuffed. Front pocket has sections that are still appropriate for todays smart phones or other electronic devices. Main compartment is more like a 14 x 8 than a 12×6 inch size. Good secure flap cover keeps this from being invaded by unwanted hands, but it also makes for somewhat slower deployment of a camera or a lens change when you want. So plan it out…” – By Green
You really never can have too much room
“It is nearly infinitely adjustable, and we are very glad of that with each new, added lens. We were pointed to this bag by our camera store, and have been very happy with it. It is heavy duty, and the advertising leaves some question about the waist strap – it’s there, and it’s well made and durable. The waist and the shoulder straps are made of seat belt material and we embroidered our identification on them with no loss of strength…” – By Ann Warner
