Great Bag

  • Summary: This bag replaces my Canon 200EG. I liked the Canon bag but it was a little too small for where my interests have taken me. It also had a zipper problem. The Tamrac Expedition 5 meets all of my needs. It holds one 20D/70-200 with BG-E2, one 24-70L Lens, one EF1.4 and EF2.0, TC-80N3, two extra 511A batteries plus charger, 580EX, CP-E3, OS-E2, CF cards, a couple of filters, extra batteries, lens cleaning kit, small tool bag and gray card. Extra room left.
  • Pros: Attractive Black Color, Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Strong Construction
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: After upgrading to a 40D from my Rebel Xt I needed something more to hold everything. Then I bought a 80-200 2.8L and that didnt fit in anything I owned. So I bought this bag, I have my 40D with battery grip, EOS film camera, 80-200 2.8, 17-85 IS, 50mm, 28-90mm, and 430Ex with room to spare a few things. On top of that I have multiple rolls of film, memory cards and filters. It's a great bag, do not hesitate to buy it!

  • Summary: This bag holds everything I need. 1 camera body with a long lens, mid range lens, wide angle, 2x extender, filters, photo cards.... Plus I carry a storm jacket for my camera in the outter bag. There is still room for airline tickets and your passport. I really like being able to strap on my tripod to the back and carry it securely. I carried this loaded pack all around Greece and Africa with me with absolutely no problems at all.

Great Bag

  • Summary: I bought this to hold a camera with a Nikon 70-200VR mounted. The Expedition 5 works great. There are lots of places to keep extras. The only complaint I have is that the zippers all have a string tie on each end. These ties can sometimes get in the way when using other zippers. However, I presume these ties do help keep the zippers from clanging against each other when walking. The construction is superb!

  • Summary: I must say that this is one of the best purchases that I've made in a while. The zippers are smooth. It is very comfortable. Plenty of space for several lenses and a couple bodies. Multiple pockets for extra memory cards, batteries, your cell phone and just about any other thing that you'd need to take along. It is also surprisingly light which is wonderful after you start loading it up with equipment.

Tamrac 5575 Expedition 5 review by chrcapi

4 December 2006
  • Summary: This is a good backpack, compact, solid, relatively light, fast and easy to organize. It provides a great shock protection and decent waterproof protection. It is really comfortable to carry, especially when worn without a tripod. Air Flow Channels aren't able to keep you dry, especially during long, summer trips, but this is an issue common to all backpacks.
  • Pros: great protection, very good carrying comfort, quite light, well-sized, easy to organize
  • Cons: bothering central restraint strap, only lower tripod are safely supported

Tamrac 5575 Expedition 5 review by Neogene

Neogene, slrgear.com
30 November 2006
  • Summary: I changed my bag "style" from a nikon shoulder bag to this model because i couldn't put on it all the stuff i needed. I was aware that every time i need to take something i need to open it and put again on my shoulders, but when is winter i put one or two lenses on my jacket and i have no need to open except for some changes. It's really solid, and when taken it looks like a stone, but when on the shoulder it looses all its weight and after some mins i forget to have it.
  • Pros: Solid, ergonomic, light when weared.
  • Cons: Not fully water resistant. Zippers on the front are difficult to handle.
