Tamrac Black Evolution Speed Roller Backpack

The versatile Tamrac Black Evolution Speed Roller Backpack ($379.95) is a unique combination of wheels and a backpack harness. It’s perfect for getting around town or traveling around the world. Whenever possible, you can roll your heavy photo gear on smooth ball-bearing wheels.

The telescoping handle opens and closes with the push of a button. The bottom compartment holds a DSLR with a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens attached (up to 8 inches), several extra lenses and a flash.  A Windowpane-Mesh pocket inside the front panel keeps accessories like memory cards and batteries organized and visible.

The top compartment is completely foam padded with adjustable, removable foam-padded dividers that hold a second camera with a 6” lens attached and two small lenses.  With the dividers removed, the top compartment provides storage for personal items.  A Windowpane-Mesh accessory pocket inside the top lid keeps small accessories within easy reach.  In the back of the top compartment, a foam-padded pocket holds up to a 15.6” screen laptop.

On the front, Tamrac’s Quick-Clip Tripod Attachment System carries a tripod securely. Two mesh side pockets hold a water bottle, maps or other necessities.  Each side also features a zipper-closing accessory pocket to keep small items organized and secure.

The Tuck-A-Way harness system keeps the backpack harness straps tucked away inside the padded back when used as a rolling bag. When the road turns rugged, the padded harness with expandable sternum strap can be removed and worn, providing comfort and stability.  A removable rain cover is included for extreme weather.

So, if you or your photo buddie are traveling a lot this is a good backpack to keep in mind. ❚ Flattr this
