About this item

The Expedition 8x is Tamrac's largest backpack for carrying the most extensive collection of photo equipment. The main compartment is completely foam padded with numerous adjustable, foam-padded dividers to protect multiple pro-size digital or film SLRs, a full range of lenses and flashes.

A camera with a long zoom lens 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 and other accessories. A plastic, foam-padded platform in bottom provides shock protection while a LockDown rain flap protects the zipper from the elements.
