The Zuma range was launched by Tamrac in August 2011, aimed at holding your digital camera, accessories, a netbook with a 10 inch screen or iPad. The Zuma 7, on test here, is the most expensive in the range, as it is designed to hold a DSLR, lenses, flash and the Tamrac ZipShot Mini Tripod. The Zuma 7 is available now with an RRP of £164.99.
To access your equipment the bag boasts Tamrac's Triple Access System. To access your camera, you slip the bag onto one shoulder and open the pocket on the side, there is one on both sides of the bag, a superb feature if you tend to go shooting in areas with muddy ground as the bag never needs to hit the floor. When it is convenient to place the bag on the floor, the contents of the bag can be accessed through the front panel. A removable rain cover is also provided and the bag is guaranteed for five years.

On the inside of the front cover there is a pouch where you can keep you iPad or netbook, but this is just one of two places you can keep it. If you open up the front pocket you will find another similarly sized pouch and this is the more obvious place to keep you netbook/iPad. One of these two pockets will also hold Apple's wireless keyboard. In this section you will also find the three smaller Windowpane-Mesh pockets for your smaller accessories and the larger one which has a zip and is ideal for keeping maps or larger accessories. Making the bag comfortable to wear, the back of the bag is well padded as are the straps.
