The main compartment is completely foam padded with numerous adjustable, foam-padded dividers to protect multiple pro-size digital or film SLRs with lenses attached, a full range of lenses and flashes. The camera with a long zoom attached is suspended on two vertical, foam-padded dividers that are internally reinforced with rigid plastic.
Restraint straps hold the lens firmly in place. 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.

Tamrac 558701 Expedition 7x Backpack is the best way to organize and secure a large gear kit for a serious photo-expedition. The Backpack keeps your equipment, dry, moisture-free yey very accesible. Thank you Tamarac, for your fine beautiful Tamrac 558701 Expedition 7x Backpack.
This bag is BIG. It is VERY WELL MADE. I easily fit D750, three zooms and two high speed lenses, flash, recharger, batteries, etc. The bag is comfortable, with a lot of of the weight carried by my hips, Access is good, but you have to take bag off to get at stuff, which is okay with me. Lots of extra pockets, used only a few. so far. I fly a lot and this bag is great for travel. After putting in all the camera gear, I can still put in my 15" laptop, and 3 days of clothes (w/o jeans). It's a really really big bag. Downside-- the 7x is very deep and just barely fits in the luggage rack on a 727. Tight squeeze. And, most irritating, there are like 20 straps hanging out all over the place-- they are meant to strap things on the outside, but there is no way to get them out of the way or take them off if you are not using them. Also, the waist strap is not always needed--it's big and there should be a way to tuck it away or keep it from dangling. All in all I'm happy, but not in love with the 7x
It's big so get used to turning about carefully in crowds and shops. Excellent padding/protection. No hassels with airline security. Considered personal baggage / carry on. Fits in aircraft overhead baggage compartments (just, when loaded). It holds everything! dual cammeras, batteries, flash, tele lens, wide lens, batteries, chargers, laptop (but not the tripods). Had hard cases but they are not as roomy and security always seemed to pick them apart esp in eastern europe. Love it. I never worry about my gear with it. Did I say it was big?
Holds all my camera gears. Great construction and easy to carry. Little larger than I expected but OK.
Great product! It's roomy and very well-built. I've worn the backpack while walking and biking for several miles, and it's proven to be very comfortable. It isn't cheap, but it is worth the money!
Used for the first time on a hike and it was great. The weight was evenly distributed. I carried a D700 with a 24-85 lens, a 35mm film camera with a 24-90 and a Mamiya M645 with a 55 lens on it. I still had lots of room. I will be using to carry all my gear to and from weddings and portraits.
Great backpack to carry anything you may need on long or short Hikes, and keeps equipment protected. Is very comfortable, easy to access equipment. More space available with M.A.S compatibles to customize to your taste. This is a big Bag holds two bodies with lenses easily.
Rest on my hips not my back. Space between bag and back helps to cool me off, less sweating. Great wieght distribution.
This is a great backpack if you know what you need you can leave some lenses behind if its going on a long hike.can be a little heavy.
I have had mine for several years and really appreciate it, so I bought another for my son who is becoming an avid photographer as well. It is great for storing your equipment as well as hiking. The weight is on your hips instead of your shoulders and it is very comfortable.
