    This review is from: Tamrac 3447 Rally 7 Camera/Laptop Bag (Brown/Tan) (Camera)

    I purchased both the Tamrac 3445 Rally 5 Camera/Netbook/iPad Bag (Brown/Tan) and Tamrac 3447 Rally 7 Camera/Laptop Bag (Brown/Tan) bags as I was looking for a daily use camera bag. I had a few key criteria for what the bag had to hold:

    1. Be able to hold my camera ( Canon EOS 50D )
    2. 1 flash ( Canon Speedlite 580EX or Canon Speedlite 430EX II )
    3. 1 lens on Camera and at least 1 additional lens
    4. Apple iPad in this case: Twelve South BookBook for iPad in Classic Black Style
    5. Assorted: memory cards, ipad camera kit, charger (iPad and camera), spare battery, etc.
    6. Place to keep a water bottle or 2

    The Rally 7 bag has 4 vertical compartments, whereas the Rally 5 has 3 vertical compartments. Both bags have a compartment for keeping a laptop, netbook or tablet. In addition there are 2 mesh pockets on either side, a zippered compartment at the front of the bag (under the flap) and a document pocket in the back of the bag.

    The Rally 7 held everything great, I could hold All of the above comfortably. I could fit my Canon EF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6L lens and 2-3 other lenses, depending on which ones I used. The problem was exactly what I could fit in the bag. Since this is going to be my walking around bag (and what I carry to work every day) I needed to keep myself from over filling the bag. The space for the iPad was plenty large and could easily hold a laptop instead (up to 15″). The pockets on the sides of the bag are pretty nice for keeping small items or water bottles and the front pocket under the flap holds all the assorted accessories I need.

    The Rally 5 on the other hand basically has one less slot so I can hold everything that I listed above, but the 100-400L lens. The iPad slot fits my iPad in case just barely or could fit a netbook instead (up to maybe a 11″ or 12″ screen, my 13″ MacBook does not fit). The bag is a little shorter and not quite as wide as the Rally 7, but the depth of the bags is just about the same as can be seen in the photos i have added to the bag pages or in the specs provided by Tamrac. The best part is that the bag now goes with me wherever I go, so I take more photos. I have to plan things more carefully than I did with my backpack, but at the same time this makes the bag lighter.

    I ended up returning the Rally 7 and kept the Rally 5. I’m not sure either of these bags could hold a Pro body or a body with a grip, but since that isn’t what I have it wasn’t a concern. Here are a few things that I would like done differently on the bag:

    1. Add the quiet opening velcro flaps like on the Crumpler bags (that I also looked at, but were too heavy).
    2. Allow the strap to be changed, although the strap is reasonably comfortable, I can see wanting a different strap or one with more padding.
    3. I’m not sure I like the clip in the front for closing the flap, it doesn’t have the guides on the side which means I don’t quite get it lined up all the time.

    Other than those 3 items I really like my new bag! I’ve been using it for almost 6 weeks now and have found it to be exactly what I needed and when my camera isn’t it, I can even use it to hold the 100-400 lens to shoot with at an event so I can get at it and swap lenses. I like the brown color as well (though I did like the black bag with red stripe that was available for other versions of this bag, that didn’t have the laptop/iPad slot).

    Note: I’ve posted this review on both the Rally 5 and Rally 7 pages as I hope this helps anyone trying to decide between these bags.
