(From company literature) Tamrac 5743 Velocity 3 Compact Messenger. The Velocity 3 is a slim-profile, messenger bag that is great for carrying a digital or film SLR with a zoom lens attached, several additional lenses and a flash. The vertical design keeps you highly mobile while carrying a camera with zoom lens attached ready for action. The Speed Flap™ Top with Easy Squeeze™ buckle provides quick access while Security Gates keep the weather out and your equipment secure. For shock protection, the main compartment is padded with closed-cell foam and has adjustable, foam-padded dividers to provide a custom fit for equipment. In front, Tamrac’s unique GearCatcher™ pocket system combines an open pocket with a secure zippered pocket for organizing accessories and personal items. A full-length zippered Speed Pocket™ on the front flap gives quick access to tickets, filters, and documents. In back a zippered pocket provides access to maps or instruction manuals, while a side pocket keeps your mobile phone within reach. A Piggy-Back Pocket™ allows the bag to be slipped over the handle of rolling luggage. Add Tamrac accessories to the shoulder strap using the attachment slots for our Strap Accessory System™ (S.A.S.™) products to customize this messenger camera bag.

Tamrac 5743 Velocity 3 Compact Messenger review by ivegotacamera
Review Date: 1/8/2007 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: $60.00| Rating: 8 

Pros: nice and portable, holds the most important stuff
Cons: could use a second support strap

This is a great little bag. I've been hiking, scaling some rocks and lots of stuff with this bag. It's not huge, but it's always held the essentials camera, extra lenses/flash and filters memory cards, etc. If you want a small light bag this one is great.
