Tamrac 3537 Express 7 Bag Black
Posted By: ChrisPlatt, 08-17-2014, 05:47 PM

For sale on eBay at a fraction of what most others are going for, I took a chance on one of these:

Perfect timing. My 20+ year old Tamrac bag is filthy and the metal clip on one side broke. Will use this to replace it! Thanks much for the listing.

If you are ever looking for a nice sling bag that is compact with room for 2-4 primes (one mounted) and can attach a tripod to I highly recommend this one from Case Logic:

Amazon.com : Case Logic SLRC-205 SLR Camera Sling (Black) : Camera Bag : Camera & Photo

I had my original lost/stolen back in December (the 24th) and just bought a replacement in case these Tamrac's did not arrive or were not quite the right bag for this weekend. Biggest issue I see with sling bags are for women, I don't think I need to go into more detail there. There were about $35 when I ordered the other day I went ahead and popped for the $3.99 for overnight shipping thanks to Amazon Prime....I paid around $60 for my first one.


I already own that one, as well! It's my basic everyday bag for the moment and holds all the essentials nicely. I can slip it down under my arm, grab the camera or change a lens and swing it around to my back again fairly easily. $35 is a great deal for one, too!


As far as the Tamrac bag in this thread, it turns out to be a bit small for what I'm after, but I figure I can use one for travel and give the other one to a family friend who is just getting into photography.


Thanks again for posting the deal!

Tamrac Express 7 Camera Bags

I had purchased 3 at the original price of $8.00, with $7.00 combined shipping. They arrived yesterday, and while I think they are a bit small for my purposes, they seem very well made . I will probably give a couple away as gifts to nephews, and keep one for light use. They are still a great deal at that price, and have a lot of nice detailing and seem to be well constructed.

I'm glad those who have received bag are pleased.
I was pretty confident it was legit or I wouldn't have posted.
Seller just didn't know what he had. Sometimes you get lucky.

38 of 100 bags have sold so far, but only 4 since seller raised price.
Anyone interested who didn't get in on the original low price might
want to keep an eye on the item for a possible future price reduction.

I'd wager the seller bought them at the bankruptcy auction, and probably has made their money back. Still, its a really good deal. Thank you for posting it! Its a great small camera bag. I'm using it for when I take one lens + camera, and the grip even fits while attached to the camera.

It's a real deal....

Bought one. Arrived Today, Real Tamrac Express7 in black. UPC codes and sku tags are real Tamrac. I looked at one of these a year ago and it IS the same bag. Probably a bankruptcy sell off. Great for a K3, 60-250, 16-50, flash/100mm macro and goodies.... I'm smiling, looks like a messenger bag......

GlassJunkie, do your K3, 60-250, 16-50, and flash all fit simultaneously?
Thanks,
John

That looks to be identical to the sling bag I have made by Dolica.

Thanks! I was looking for a bag that can fit my k30 with sigma 18-50 mounted, and hold a flash and another lens - sounds like this will do it nicely!
Thanks Chris for linking to the deal! (Even at the "increased" price, it's still pretty cheap...)

No this Tamrac is more of a messenger bag, not a sling backpack.

Doubt it, 22 dollars is still an amazing price for this bag. I'll be picking it up once my refund I issued goes through with another seller.
