I currently own the Tamrac Adventure 7 but it's in need of replacement, whilst I'm pretty happy with it (has dual storage - camera gear and personal gear) I'm wondering if anyone knows of a decent alternative before I buy the same one again.

The Lowepro Versapack 200AW has been suggested although it doesn't appear quite so well made as the Tamrac, would welcome any other suggestions?

thanks

HIya,

I have the older version of the M-Rock 'Olympic' for my GX10 - I particularly like being able to swing it around in front of me and open a little side hatch to pull the camera out quick without removing or opening the backpack. Quality is similar to my Lowepro bag.

Its near the bottom of this page (their discounted clearance section):

The newer versions are here (under backpacks and slings):

Thanks for the other suggestions..I did try a lowepro slingshot type bag & didn't really like it, I felt the camera boby wasn't supported well enough - the Adventure 7 on the other hand fits like a glove, it is obviously more difficult to access equipment quickly though, I'm beginning to think the Tamrac probably suits my needs as well as anything

The Tamrac Aero and Aero speed might be worth a look.

Thanks Hyram - I did try a Kata backpack too, it didn't seem as well protected as the Tamrac so I returned it...just had a look at the Tamrac Aerospeed pack 75 and it looks pretty good, looks to have the best bits of the Adventure 7 with better access - might give it a go

I've ordered the Tamrac Aeropack 75 via SRS on Ebay (cheaper than the online store for some reason?). I'll report back when I've had chance to try it out
