Holds Camera Gear

The main compartment is completely foam padded with numerous adjustable, foam-padded dividers to protect digital SLRs, 4-5 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.

New foam-padded front pocket with water-resistant zipper protects laptops with up to 12″ screens and provides easy access without disturbing photo gear.

Dual Hinge Divider System View

The Dual Hinge Divider System adjusts to allow two DSLRs to be carried with lenses attached.

Dual "Wing" Accessory Pockets View

Dual “wing” pockets with water-resistant zippers organize and provide quick access to important accessories without disturbing your other gear. These “wing” pockets also feature Tamrac’s patented Memory & Battery Management System™ that uses red flags to identify available memory cards and batteries from ones that are used up.

QuickClip™ Tripod Attachment System View

A tripod is cradled (centered and balanced) securely between these pockets with Tamrac’s QuickClip™ tripod attachment system while the lower plastic-reinforced Tripod Foot Pocket holds two tripod legs secure.

State-of-the-art Harness System View

The state-of-the-art harness system with Dual-Density Comfort Pads provides maximum carrying comfort while Air Flow Channels help keep you cool and dry during extended use. The pack is also equipped with an adjustable waist belt and an expandable sternum strap for finer adjustments.  The harness features “D” rings that accept Tamrac’s optional backpack camera strap (Model N-11).

    I got this bag 10years ago, love it a lot, gonna buy another
    Bigger size when I add more gear.

  • Solid pack for those who move around a lot when they do photography. By Adam Bruce  

    The Expedition 5x is a very solid mid-size backpack for the photo enthusiast. The interior is set up in a very efficient way that allows for maximum storage without making the backpack huge and awkward to carry around. Multiple spots for accessories as well as multiple spots for camera bodies, lenses, and flash. The tripod holder is also one of the better one’s on the market and makes a lot of sense to have adjustable buckles. The padding on the backpack is sure to make your laptop and your camera equipment safe. Overall a solid backpack for those looking to carry around just the right amount of gear.
