Tamrac 5562 Explorer 200 User Reviews
“I routinely carry a Canon 50D, 24-105L and EF-S 17-55 in this case along with the usual lens wipes, spare battery and memory cards. If I leave one lens out I can also carry a full size flash like the 430 or 580EX. A 500ml aluminum water bottle will also fit inside in place of one lens/flash. It is just small enough to stuff into my carry-on backpack which can slide under the seat in front of you when flying. The mesh side pocket is too small for a standard round water bottle but it perfectly fits a large plastic flask for carrying some water. The top cover completely covers the gear inside and it’s edges cover the zipper so it provides good rain protection even without the waterproof cover in place. I can’t say the bag is inconspicuous. It looks like a small, black camera bag.” – By Dane
Tamrac makes a superb quality Explorer 200
“I bought the Tamrac Explorer 200 for an excursion with my Panasonic Lumix G2, 14-42mm kit zoom, and the Panasonic Lumix 20mm f/1.7 pancake. This bag held the above kit with room to spare, and was the perfect size for travel. I could probably fit at least one more lens such as the Panasonic/Leica 45mm macro and/or the Lumix 7-14mm Ultra-Wide zoom. I also like the many pockets for accessories, as well as the included rain hood. One gets the secure feeling that one’s gear is well-protected from both the elements and any rough handling. It is a Quality item inside and out! I’ve used Tamrac products for years, and highly recommend them, at least their line of shoulder bags.” – By S. A. Solomon
“I like the bag very much. It’s small, but I carry my D90 with 1 lens attached (18-55), plus another lens (55-200). Besides some small miscellaneous items, like IR remote, flash drive, battery charger, etc., there isn’t much space left over. Maybe I could fit an external flash and small lens, but that would be about it. It has a zipper enclosure around the top of the bag under the top cover and a quick-release clip.” – By Jim
