Tamrac are well known for some very impressive gadget bags. I still have the largest bag I ever bought, which housed medium format equipment that went with me at home and abroad during the 90’s. A little the worse for wear now,I was very pleased with the way it performed day in day out.

Here are the details of the ‘new Tamrac Apache’ Photo Messenger range from the importers:

Apache Photo Messenger Bags combine the rugged look of the old west with modern styling, materials and features.

Apache 6 open

Tamrac’s new Apache Series are discreet, comfortable, lightweight photo messenger bags that offer superior organisation and equipment protection. The outer material is tough, durable sailcloth that is lightweight, waterproof and has a soft, supple feel. The designs are comfortable to carry and provide fast access to camera gear and accessories. Tough Hypatex bases provide maximum resistance to abrasion and moisture. The roomy zippered front pockets feature numerous internal organizer pockets to hold hard drives, cables, memory cards, batteries and other personal items.

The series consists of 3 models:
