Thread: Tamrac Adventure 9 or National Geographic's 5162 (medium)

  1. #1

    Question Tamrac Adventure 9 or National Geographic's 5162 (medium)

    HI:

    Has anyone used both of the aforementioned bags? or compared them ? Wanna look for a bag that i can take with me for short trips that can put stuff other than camera equipment...

    Important factors are space clothings,stuff/map, barang-barang & laptop... whether it's weatherproof...etc

    camera space i'm fine as i don't have alot .....(yet)....

    Saw in another thread that the Lowepro's CompuRover AW is over-hyped, so looking for oppinions on the above 2... anyone knows which one has more non-camera stuff space?

    thanks in advance!

    I did consider that at first... but then... better get one that looks like a proper camera bag.

    tamrac has wrist support so u can rest ur weight on it. So it should be able to sustain long hours of trekking etc.


    If you're talking about distance walking, do consider a wrist support backpack. VEry Very important factor.

    thanks.. but back to my question... comparatively which one provided more space? i'd seen the NG5162 in CP ... but the top portion is somewhat "let down" from the pics i'd seen on the web... there's isn't much "room"... granted, the NG5162 has lots more of external pockets... and the side pouches for waterbottle and tripod...

    Haven't seen the tamrac yet... anyone can advise on that? from the tamrac website it doesn't show too much external pockets and doesn't have strap holders to strap on a tripod rite?

    If not mistaken from other posts... the tamrac is >$200 but still not much comparable to the 5162 ($190)... would appreciate anyone who can give hands-on experience ... thanks alot !
