The Turbo CyberPro is a slim, briefcase-style carrying system for your laptop and photo gear.

Tamrac's patented TurboTop opens with a quick pull of the parallel double zippers to provide instant access to camera equipment. Inside, foam-padded dividers organize and protect camera equipment in a vertical orientation for a slim profile that hangs close to the body. A separate, foam-padded pocket in back protects laptops like Apple's 17-inch PowerBook G4 and others up to 11 x 2 x 15 1/2-inches. Elastic pockets inside the back pocket organize unwieldy cables and cords. The front pocket has paraphernalia pockets to organize CDs, a mobile phone, a PDA, and business cards.

Behind the front pocket is Tamrac's exclusive Slide Pocket with the Memory & Battery Management System (patent pending) which uses red flags to identify available memory cards and batteries from ones that are used up. Other features include: interior mesh pocket, smooth nylon pocket inside the TurboTop,

Modular Accessory and Strap Accessory System attachment slots, and Piggy-Back Pocket to slip the bag over the handle of rolling baggage.

Comments about Tamrac Tamrac Turbo CyberPro Photo/Computer Briefcase 5618:

I have been looking for a messenger-style bag to carry my Canon 1Ds MkII and 3 lenses (85mm 1.2L, 24-70mm 2.8L, 70-200mm 2.8L), and most messenger bags were too narrow to fit the camera body. I decided to give this bag a try, and I am glad that I did!

I can fit two lenses (85mm and 24-70mm) in separate pockets, plus body and the 70-200mm lens mounted in the 3rd pocket (vertically, hoods reversed). I then have a small 4th pocket to keep my 580ex II flash and Sekonic light meter inside.

I was somewhat surprised how comfortable the shoulder strap was, even with the all the gears in the bag. I guess the wide width of the bag spreads the load on the strap. However my shoulder does hurt somewhat after walking around with the bag for hours - I suppose that's because of all the weight on one shoulder. The weight of all that gear can't be avoided I suppose, regardless of which bag used to carry them.

Only annoyance I have with this bag, is the speed at which I can open the bag. The top loading isn't as great, because you have to unzip the entire width of the bag, using two zippers. I think one zipper design could make that process quicker. Also, the front loading would've been lot easier, if the buckle location wasn't so down near the bottom. i.e. when I'm wearing the bag, I should be able to open the front of the bag easily - but this isn't that easy as it's below my arm's length.

Overall a good bag for someone wants to carry variety of lenses.
