Tamrac, Inc. is an American-based manufacturer of photographic equipment bags and backpacks. Established in 1977 by a group of amateur photographers who enjoyed nature photography, Tamrac is based in Chatsworth, California and has 200 employees.
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.
Tamrac declared Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2014. The company's assets and brand name were purchased for $5.6 million by photographic accessory maker Gura Gear in June 2014. The combined company operates under the Tamrac name.
