Tamrac Introduces Anvil Professional Series Camera Backpacks

Tamrac has announced Anvil, a new professional series of camera backpacks with enhanced foam protection and weight reduced by 35 percent.

Tamrac said the new professional series backpacks are designed for professional videographers and photographers looking for rugged and innovative carrying solutions for their camera gear. The Anvil series brings a new level of performance and lightweight protection to the camera backpack market.

The Anvil backpacks combine the favorite features of Tamrac’s best selling Expedition series with modern materials, designs and quality craftsmanship. Built with durable and protective lightweight materials, Anvil backpacks tip the scales at just over four pounds.

A quick release tripod carrying system holds any size tripod stable on the back of the pack and quickly removes for a fuss free exterior when not in use. In addition, the Anvil features a comfortable airflow harness system. Accessories are accessed in the front butterfly pockets, and an interior protective laptop compartment carries laptops up to 15-inches in size.

Available in a range of six sizes, the Anvil backpacks carry a variety of gear. The Anvil 17, 23, and 27 are designed for professional-sized DSLRs with battery grips plus lenses and accessories. The Anvil Slim 11 and Slim 15 are shallower in depth and are purpose built to carry compact DSLRs and mirrorless camera systems plus extra lenses and accessories. The Anvil Super 25 is specifically designed to carry a pro-sized DSLR attached to a telephoto lens up to 600 mm.

The Anvil is PVC-free and features durable weather-resistant fabrics. Easy to use hardware is by Duraflex. Zippers are by YKK. Additional innovations include a removable M.O.L.L.E compatible hip belt that can be used independently with Tamrac and other M.O.L.L.E. compatible accessories.

Internal dividers are constructed of customizable protective foam optimized for weight and protection. All of the bags are airline compliant and water resistant, as well as having an included rain cover with sealed seams for more protection against extreme weather.

“Our design concept for the Anvil was simple — use modern, high quality materials to modernize a Tamrac brand favorite. That mandate allowed us to choose the best fabrics, the strongest buckles and the most durable zippers to build the Anvil,” said Sarah Hamilton, Tamrac’s vp of operations.

Prices range from $229.95 to $329.95.
