evac™ series

tactical optics sling pack

Being jammed in confined spaces for hours is an unfortunate part of the business for many professionals we serve. Whether it’s a military unit in an a.p.c., a pilot in a cockpit, drivers in a HumVee, or a journalist in the back of a goat truck, they all have to bring their gear. And they all may need to ‘relocate’ in a hurry. This is the environment for which our Evac™ line of sling packs has been geared. They are slim shaped to be easily manoeuvred in crowds, or stored in vehicles/lockers, and are quick to take on or off. They are also ambidextrous, and unlike others in this class, are actually comfortable on the shoulder; The bottom strap clips from either the right or left lower corner and the padded section realigns itself ergonomically in the correct body-hugging direction. The bag can be rotated to the chest for on-the-go access, and all pockets are designed to face the user in this mode on either the right or left side. One-strap-carry also makes shouldering a long-gun comfortable - unlike a backpack.

Best purchase I have ever madeReview by Brian ADams
As a professional photographer, finding a bag that suites my need was honestly becoming a pain in my but. Then a Professional Photographer friend of mine, told me to check out Hazard4. So I check them out and liked what I saw, unfortunately I bought mine through eBay. However the Photo-Recon bag has been my new best friend ever since. And I am even looking at purchasing some other bags and accessories very soon. Their products are worth the price, they handle almost anything you through at them and then some.

No less than I'd expect from Hazard 4Review by Eric
I've had the Plan-B for a number of years and have beaten the crap out of it, it's held up to everything I've done to it like a champ. So, when I needed a photo bag it was a no brainer. The flexibility of configuration of this bag is off the charts and I am continually shocked at just how much I can cram in here and still have my components be safe. I'll run a nikon w/ lense mounted, 3 lenses, flash, tripod, batteries and filters and still have a bag that wears comfortably and allows quick access to whatever I need. Recently I've also discovered I can ditch the other lenses and fit my Mavic Pro drone in the lower zipped pocket so I can carry it and my camera into the country. Great product. (Posted on 7/13/2017)
Best Field Bag I've UsedReview by arvivaz
Fits two DSLRs with vertical battery grips, one with a 24-70 and another with a 70-200. On the side is an armored iPad Mini. Extra battery packs and a 580 flash tucked in there too. Strapped to the side is a 60" tripod. Compact, protective and easy to access. About the only thing that I thought would improve this is a better interface between the top end of the shoulder strap and the body of the bag. It's wide and tends to get in the way. A limited swivel joint might do the trick, or a very narrow flat buckle that allows a looped belt to play around a bit. But that's just nitpicking. OVerall, since acquiring it, it's the only bag I use. Nothing else comes close. Great job guys.

Absolutely the best camera bag I've ever used.Review by Daniel Templeton
I have used a variety of bags over the last 30 years as a professional photographer. My last project was the western half of the United States in 30 days. Working continually in confined spaces with no great carry options is what make me purchase this pack. I am still field testing, but it is a low profile, high capacity unit that is comfortable to carry, does well in confined area as well as crowds, and most importantly has plenty of molle webbing to allow me to kit out for each individual assignment. So far, this is absolutely the best camera bag I've ever used. (Posted on 7/20/2016)
Great camera pack & moreReview by Anton E

It's really good for a photo needs: dslr, 2-3 lenses, 1-2 speedlight & a tripod attached to the side. But what makes it really cool is variety of adjustments- both inside and outside. At first it may seem uncomfortable, but when you take some time and set all to suit your body- well, it really feels comfortable. And one more thing) Design is awesome. Square from top, and straps- they kind of underline your waist. Looks really great! (Posted on 7/24/2013)
AmazingReview by Mike

Very well made, love the one sling and padded structure. Very durable and well worth the price. I bought 2 more! (Posted on 5/10/2013)
StudentReview by Jake

This bag is phenomenal. I absolutely love the bag, looks great, feels great, works great. I've carried it through a snow storm and it didn't seep through at all, I often carry it up to 6 hours at a time without a problem. My only suggestion would be to include smaller dividers to help make little squares for the lenses (if that makes any sense) Absolutely the best camera bag I have ever used. (Posted on 4/11/2013)
A Real Go-Bag for a Camera Built to protectReview by Vinnie C

Many uses/users for the bag Combat Camera/covert camera/Storm/Fire-police news chasers. plenty of room for Pro-DSLR-lenses-batteries-police radio. I ordered spare dividers and used 2 at 90degree angle to block the top section and help keep the bag square. I only have 2 suggestions 1) a side carry handle or mod the strap someway to make it a handle and 2) make a divider with velcro on all four sides and just a little thicker to use it as a stop for the dslr section and the stiffen the bag.

SoldierReview by adam s
Outstanding bag for combat camera. Flexibility and versatility of carry and internal configuration. Ive used Kata brand bags for years. This bag is constructed of the same highest quality materials BUT has more carry options and internal storage while remaining tactical. (Posted on 9/29/2012)
Bag-tastic with a few flawsReview by Micah S
The bag is great for someone like me who doesn't have a ton of lenses. I have 1 body and two lenses and the bag has plenty of room to spare. The only problems i have with the bag are the pocket placement and zipper access. When you sling the bag around to your front the main pocket is facing down? how am i supposed to grab another lens with the pocket facing down? The accessory pocket on the front also opens down. Aside from these odd choices i really like the bag. (Posted on 6/26/2011)
Absolutely Superb camera pack!Review by Raymond B
This is by far the best camera pack I have ever had. I have a room full of camera bags that just don't cut it. This bag is so configurable. I am able to hold more in this bag than I imagined. The weight is perfect and there are only a few minor things I would have done differently. This bag is superior to the major brands out there and the price for what you get is awesome. I would have rated this 10 stars, or 100 of 100. Great bag. Forward Observer is next! (Posted on 1/29/2011)

Does the Photo Recon accept a hydration bladder? Thank you.
Unfortunately since the Photo-Recon is designed more as a camera bag, it doesn't include a dedicated back compartment for a hydration bladder like many of our other bags.
Customer Support answered on May 19, 2016
Would there be any trouble fitting a 120-300 f/2.8 lens in this?
Your lens will fit fine.
The PhotoRecon comes with multiple dividers that you can re-configure to accommodate various lens sizes.
Customer Support answered on July 14, 2017
Is there a compartment for an iPad or Tablet?
The description on the website says "no laptop compartment" and the dimensions of the main compartment are ~18.1" L x 6.3" W x 4.7" D (46 x 16 x 12 cm) while the dimensions for an iPad off the Apple website are 9.4" L x 6.6" W x 0.24" D (24 x 16.95 x 0.75 cm).

So the bag might be too narrow for an iPad. However, we have had customers report that they've successfully fit an iPad mini 8" L x 5.3" W x 0.24" D (20.32 x 13.48 x 0.61 cm).

We apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you for inquiry.

Yes, you can phone in to place an order.

Will it fit a 33" long tripod?
You can strap the tripod to the sides of Photo Recon®.
Customer Support answered on July 11, 2018
does it fit a nikon d4s probosy with a 70-200 lens attached
The dimensions of the camera with that lens attached seem to be 11.7" x 6.2" x 6.3". The listed dimensions of the Photo-Recon are 18.1" x 6.3" x 4.7", so the camera as described most likely would not fit as the bag is not tall enough. We apologize for any inconvenience.
