Tamrac 5273 Expedition 3 User Reviews

Well made little backpack
“Like all the Tamrac products I’ve bought, this pack is very well constructed and durable. It looks quite small, but the main compartment holds my D70 with 70-300mm VR Lens attached and there’s room also for the 18-70mm kit lens, 50mm f1.8 lens, SB400 flash & the Nikon charger. It’s quite snug with everything in the backpack, but no real problem for everyday use. Only snag is if I want to leave the camera in the bag with the kit lens fitted. There isn’t much room then for the telephoto. My original 70-300mm G lens was smaller & was no problem.” – By David J. Aldridge

I LOVE IT
“This back pack is big enough to hold my camera and accessories. The zippers are heavy duty and there is padding so I feel safe setting the bag down. The pockets are lined with a soft plastic that is transparent so you can see what you are grabbing. I love how it fits on my back and the straps are thick so it doesn’t cut into my shoulders. It is perfect for hiking to locations too.” – By Yvette Payan

Secure Backpack for your DSLR
“This is a secure and hard backpack for your DSLR!!! You won’t have to be worried about the health of your camera if you have it inside this one… And the cool part, is that you have a lot of compartiments to put all your stuff: lenses, memory, etc… I use it for my Nikon D40″ – By Eric

Just what I needed
“I have used this bag with my Nikon D50 and later with the D80. It fits the body with the 18-55mm lens attached. Also I carry a 50mm, 55-200mm and a 120mm lens. The flash unit goes in its own bag but it hangs from outside of the Tamrac. I also carry some filters, memory cards, a pen, ID, and other flat items that can go in the front pocket. I have take this bag to several trips as a carry-on item and it has a perfect size for carry-on! The most surprising experience with this bag is when I left it unattended in a boat and it rained dogs and cats! All my equipment was 100% dry!!” – By N. Spiller

Awesome Travel Backpack
“Tamrac is a quality built company with quality built products. The backpack may seem small at first but can really pack a lot of punch. My DSLR and all my lens fit snug. Trust me you want that. Everything is secure and safe when traveling. It’s waterproof and highly durable. Lots of accessories available as well. The only fall back is that you want to travel with a light weight tripod or monopod. I have a heavy/sturdy tripod that I carry by hand and won’t rest well with the Tamrac backpack. Other than that, a great buy!” – By “Randy”

Good quality, good value
“This is perfect, I put my Nikon D80 with the 18-200 lens mounted, nicely padded. Then 1 macro lens, some filters. Still have room for small maps, pencil, small notebook. The zipper is sturdy, well protected from the rain. Walking in the woods, it’s very comfortable on my back. Even when I am at home that is where my camera stays, safe.” – By QLook

Small – Day Pack Size
“Tamrac 5273 Expedition 3 SLR Photo Backpack (Black)This is a great little backpack. It works well for what I need for some trips. Yes, it is SMALL. Although the picture of the backback may be a bit deceiving, the product description described it perfectly. The dimensions were 9.5x8x14.5. The size of the backpack allows me to place the backpack under the seat in front of me when I fly and still have room for my feet.” – By Jo. Nelson

Great bag for the amateur photographer
“Tamrac is a brand I trust from past experience so I bought this Expedition 3 backpack style bag for my new Canon T2i. The interior of the bag can be customized for use with several different cameras and accessories and is the perfect size to accomodate the camera with standard lens, a 55-250mm zoom lens, and a 60mm macro lens, plus all the cables, cords, extra battery, battery charger, extra memory cards, and the camera instruction book… I am really impressed with the overall contruction quality, zippers, and weight of the materials used to make this bag. I am confident it will protect my camera and gear from any weather or rough handling that happen to come along. Now I’m ready to just sling my gear over my shoulder and take it any where I want to go.” – By Terry
