5.0 out of 5 stars BEST PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT CARRIER I HAVE EVER OWNED!, January 9, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Tamrac 5788 Evolution 8 Photo/Laptop Sling Backpack (Brown/Tan) (Camera)
I wish I could give it 15 stars.

Pros:
1 )Converts from sling to backpack VERY easily
2) Comfortable in either configuration
3) Protects equipment well
4) On the trail, it did not throw my center of balance off
5) Well made
6) lots of little pockets
7) Held all my camera gear (2 bodies, 4 lenses, film, memory cards, batteries) plus water, some snacks and a few other accessories.
8) Includes a rain cover
9) In sling mode, I can actually rest my elbows on it and use it as a somewhat stable shooting platform
10) Can carry laptop, but I see no reason why I couldn't also fit a hydration bladder into that slot if I wanted.

Cons:
1) It is a little heavy on its own. The generous padding and quality materials are kind of a double edged sword in that manner.
2) I wish it had a little more room for extra gear. Not so much photo gear, but general supplies. It's comfortable to hike with, but it can't hold ALL my photo gear AND other hiking supplies (first aid stuff, etc) at the same time. For airplane/car/train type traveling, the bag is perfect.

Very highly recommended.
