I have a Tamrac Evolution 8 right now and thinking of replacing it with the ThinkTank Harddrive.

I would need a camera backpack that also takes a 15.6 laptop... the Tamrac Evolution 8 does that right now, but I'm thinking that if I accumulate more gear (lens) in the future, it might not fit... the thinktank I think is more "future proof"...

What do you guys think?

Thank you.

I have the TT Streetwalker HD and it's great. It is little to big for bringing around everywhere but perfect for travel or long walks. For the quick in and out of the city i prefer my Vangaurd Uprise 38.

Both are great bags....

TT was $180 and the Uprise 38 was $150....

TT SW HD is a great bag. Very well designed and comfortable to wear. I love mine. If you want something a little smaller, look at the Streetwalker Pro.

you guys convinced me.... I'm selling my tamrac evolution 8 and will be getting the TT SW HD... I also saw the SW Pro, but I needed something to hold my laptop... so you guys are right... the TT SW HD is the perfect bag (and sort of like future proof for me).

thanks so much...

So did you get your SW HD as of yet?

Interested on your opinion?

Considering picking one up myself to replace my Computrekker AW.

The TT hardrive are taller, thinner and deeper compared to the Lowepro Computrekker AW.

I personally prefer the shape of the TT Hardrive, it's as thought out as the rest of their lineup. I really like the tripod pocket, much prefer it to Lowepros/Kata's solutions.

Thanks for the input. I may stop by Henry's tonight and have a look!

Another thing i noticed is that the TT hardrive (and this goes for most of the TT bags) is that it's very flexible yet sturdy. This allows you to pack the bag really full without you having to worry about zippers or seams failing.

My first Kata 222-UL was returned after the first assignment i used it(top compartment where i fit the Quadra battery pack had two lose seams), sure it was probably a dud. (i didn't force the quadra in, but it was a snug fit)

I just went and bought one and already switched over my gear, with space to space to spare.

So far so good and love the size of the bag, seems so much smaller than my CompuTrekker yet it fits more!

The Tamrac Evolution 8 and Think Tank Streetwalker HD are two different style bags.
The Tamrac allows you to access while walking. The TT HardDrive is a traditional backpack that must be removed to access your gear.
The TT does hold more gear.
Both are different tools in the box.
If you like the Tamrac's convenience, you may want to "add" the ThinkTank for your different needs.
I have yet to find just one "perfect" bag.

I 100% agree, after getting the TT SW HD, I found myself looking for another "walk around" backpack.... my main use for the TT SW HD would be for travel w/ my laptop... although I have my kata access 18pl, i think i'm now leaning towards a small backpack for my walkaround everyday needs... but it's so tough to find a small backpack that would fit a gripped 7D.....

I was looking at a flipside 200, but i'm not sure if it would fit a gripped 7D, the flipside 300 would be a bit big for my taste as an everyday bag...

the TT streetwalker is just too expensive....

any thoughts/suggestions?

thanks
