Tamrac 5770 Velocity 10x Backpacks
The Velocity 10x - Pro Sling Pack is the largest version of our popular sling packs. It holds one or two pro-sized DSLRs with lenses attached, additional lenses and a flash. Inside the main compartment, the cameras with lenses attached are suspended on two vertical, foam-padded dividers that are internally reinforced with rigid plastic. The Velocity 10x 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 10x 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.

Strengths: The bag itself is well constructed.
Weaknesses: Overpriced and not as roomy as advertised.
I'm really disappointed in the room available. It doesn't really fit my one body and three lenses and a flash. If I carried to bodies, I wouldn't have room. This is the biggest Velocity they make, and the diagrams that show how all the equipment fits in the bag are plain inaccurate and misleading.
I also can't stand that the bottom of the bag is not flat, so things roll around from the compartment I put them in to the middle of the bag.
