Tamrac's Adventure 9 backpack is available in two coloured versions - grey and black or red and black. The dual compartment design is equally split and unzipping the lower compartment reveals a spacious and deep interior.
Capable of holding a semi-pro DSLR (with grip) and standard zoom attached there's ample room for additional lenses including a 70-200mm f/2.8 and a smaller prime. On the inside flap of the front compartment there are four useful CompactFlash card pockets and an additional larger pocket that's handy for storing filters.
As we discovered though, the flap that's designed to prevent rain from creeping past the zipper can get caught up when the compartment is being opened and closed. This becomes extremely irritating when you just want to get to your kit without fuss.
Due to its curved profile, the top compartment isn't as spacious as you may expect but it's still a good place to store waterproofs, lunch or batteries in the small pouch that's included. The two spacious side pockets are a great place to store a water bottle and a slot to carry a 17in laptop is also provided. In use the bag sat comfortably on our back and on the move it was extremely secure thanks to the waist and chest straps.
