(From company literature) Tamrac 5748 Velocity 8 Pro Sling Pack. The Velocity 8 Pro Sling Pack is slightly smaller than the Velocity 9, but still accommodates a pro digital or film SLR with a grip (such as Canon's EOS 1D series or Nikon's D2 series) and a 70-200mm zoom lens attached. It can be carried comfortably like a backpack, but can be swung around to the front to provide quick access to camera gear. A well-padded sling strap comfortably distributes the weight, but need not be removed to quickly access photo equipment. Outside, a large mesh pocket is ideal for carrying an energy bar or water bottle. The front pocket features Tamrac's patented Memory & Battery Management System™ that uses red flags to identify available memory cards and batteries from ones that are used up. Organizer pockets inside keep a mobile phone, PDA or photo accessories within reach. A pocket inside the lid stores filters. Customize this sling pack with Tamrac's Modular Accessory System™ components.
