Brand: Tamrac
Located in: Backpacks
Tamrac has completely redesigned its popular Expedition Series backpacks to set a new standard of quality, function and comfort for photographic backpacks. Besides their striking design, some unique highlights of the new backpacks include:
  • Dual wing pockets with water-resistant zippers organize and provide quick access to important accessories without disturbing your other gear.
  • Tamrac''s patented Memory & Battery - Management System that uses red flags to identify available memory cards and batteries.
  • Dual-Density Comfort Pads provide maximum carrying comfort.
  • Air Flow Channels that help keep you cool and dry.
  • QuickClip tripod attachment system - securely holds a tripod centered and balanced between the "wing" accessory pockets while the lower plastic-reinforced Tripod Foot Pocket holds two tripod legs secure.
The Expedition 5 is a medium size pack that offers foam-padded protection and quick access to multiple SLRs, lenses, flash and accessories. The main compartment is completely foam padded with numerous adjustable, foam-padded dividers to protect digital or film SLRs, 5-7 lenses, and a flash. The camera with a long zoom lens attached is suspended on two vertical, foam-padded dividers that are internally reinforced with rigid plastic. A restraint strap holds the lens firmly in place. Two Windowpane-Mesh pockets inside the front flap visibly organize filters, film and other accessories. A plastic, foam-padded platform in the bottom provides shock protection while a LockDown rain flap protects the zipper from the elements. A large front pocket with a water-resistant zipper holds a light jacket or extra gear.

Great pack, especially for the price! Comfortable, and lightweight. Have had Lowepro packs that have worn out much faster than this one. Had this one a long time and still looks and feels brand new!

Comments about Tamrac Expedition 5 Digital Camera/Video Backpack 5575, Black:

This backpack looks big but by being rounded on one end makes it smaller. I have 2 bodies 1 long lens and 2 short lens as well as a flash and quantum battery. It does fit but you can't leave the lens hoods on the lens. Also the pockets are not deep at all on the outside not to much for storage there. IF you think this one will do get a bigger one. It is very easy to carry though. Well made. must be laid down to open up or everything will fall out. if you plan on changing lens alot a regular bag would be better. Great for transporting.

Comments about Tamrac Expedition 5 Digital Camera/Video Backpack 5575, Black:

My wife is the photographer. I am the roadie. As such I have much experience lugging aroung camera bags and tripods which must be put down for access and can be easily misplaced or stolen. With the Expedition 5 (we already had the old 3 series for our N70 and accessories) I can now carry our new D80 with 18-135 lens and N70 with 28-80 and 70-240 lens; and all other accesories. My hands are always free. There is no fear of theft. All I have to do is turn around and let her rummage to her heart's content. The Expedition 5 is extremely rugged, well padded, waterproof, and comfortable to carry even with the addition of water bottles.
