About Tamrac


Tamrac – The idea Is born!

Tamrac is the leading manufacturer and distributor of
a diverse line of camera bags, camera cases, photo daypacks, convertible camera bags, photo backpacks, photo hip packs, rolling cases and the Modular Accessory System.

The concept behind Tamrac’s camera carrying systems was conceived in 1977. Tamrac’s founders were outdoor enthusiasts who loved nature photography. They, like many amateur and professional photographers, had a strong need for camera bags that were tough enough to offer excellent protection, yet were easy to carry and allowed fast access to camera equipment to capture spontaneous wildlife pictures.

Without a satisfactory product in the marketplace, the founders of Tamrac, in true California entrepreneurial spirit, began manufacturing their own camera bags. They designed these bags specifically for wilderness photography. California’s diverse geography provided an unparalleled backdrop for the first adventures of Tamrac into the wild. From the desolate landscapes of Death Valley to the towering granite peaks of Yosemite, the products pioneered at Tamrac met the challenges California had to offer.

What’s in a Name?
The name Tamrac was created to reflect the rugged outdoors. A pine found in the American wilderness was used as inspiration for the name. From the beginning, the Tamrac logo has included a likeness of a pine.

Quality, Function, Style, and Innovation:
For twenty years, Tamrac has built its reputation on legendary quality. The workmanship and quality are the combination of excellent sewing and product engineering that is reinforced with the finest materials, threads, and hardware.

The purpose of a Tamrac camera bag is not only to carry and protect your equipment, but to hold them for convenient, quick access. Tamrac offers a diverse product line to meet all of your specific travel requirements and photographic objectives.

Functional designs that people can understand and a strong sense of style make Tamrac’s products easy to use and a pleasure to own. Tamrac is committed to design innovations. Several of Tamrac’s inventions are patented within the United States.
