Tamrac 5587 Expedition 7x User Reviews
This is a MONSTER but a good one
“I actually didn’t expect this bag/backpack to be so big. However, it makes sense and it holds allot of equipment and the Sony 15.4″ laptop all in one bag with good solid construction and padding along with some light rain guard on the outer areas. It fits well, is very adjustable, comfy but heavy especially when filled.” – By Stuart Floyd
Wonderful, convenient photo bag
“This is absolutely the perfect photo bag for me. It’s comfortable, rides well, carries everything I could need in the field, including a tripod. I think the design is by far the best so far.” – By E. S. Short
“I was able to include a Nikon D300 camera with a Nikkor 80-400mm lens, a Nikon D200 camera with a Nikkor 18-200mm lens, a Nikkor 70-200 f/2.8 lens, two Nikon SB800 flash units, a Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8 lens, a Gitzo GM3551 monopod (strapped to the outside), an assortment of batteries, filters, lens caps, cleaning supplies, 12 Compact Flash memory cards, an Apple MacBook Pro 15″, and the power cables and connections for the computer. All of this gear fit comfortably in the backpack. Once loaded it was by no means lightweight but I at least felt like the gear was protected and I could carry everything I needed in 1 bag. “ – By J. Summers
It fits all
“Due to my photo equipment growth, I jumpped from Tamrac Adventure 9 to Expedition 7x. I am happy because the room increasing. And it fits my laptop, too. Heavy, voluminous and protectant. That is the charactheristics’ combination of a well done backpack.” – By Roberto Abdala Selmen
A solid bag – well built for travel
“I would describe myself as an enthusiastic amateur photographer/videographer who frequently travels with a lot of equipment. This series of backpacks has been given high ratings by a number of users which prompted my initial interest. I live in a small town and was unable to get a “hands on” look at this backpack, although my local vendor did carry the Aero series of packs. Prior to purchase I was looking for: Protection for my 2008 15in MacBook Pro (LED series), Protection for my Canon EOS 40D with multiple lenses, The ability to bring my Sony HDV Handycam, Plenty of room for accessories and additional small items, A sturdy external construction that would survive travel and hiking, A bag would serve as a carry-on for flights..” – By Joe
Exceptional Quality & Usability
“I really don’t have anything to complain about for this camera backpack. The support structure is phenominal and the ability to “build” your compartments as you see fit, makes it very user friendly. Ive been using it for about 2 motnhs now and very happy with it. Doesn’t feel as heavy as as much gear as I carry in it. This size fits in the as the carry-on size for airliness too…nice to know my camera gear won’t be getting damamged.” – By Adam L Bennett

Three 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.
