It has a Dual Action Top that provides full coverage to the foam-padded main compartment which supports the camera on foam pillars. For shock protection, the bottom has a thick, foam-padded plastic platform. The bag has a Front Pocket that uses a Memory & Battery Management System that uses red flags to identify which memory cards and batteries are available and which ones are used up.

Inside the top, a Windowpane-Mesh pocket stores filters, film or cleaning materials. There are two side pockets for accessories. There is a ZipDrop front pocket that has paraphernalia pockets and a mesh pocket to organize small accessories and personal items. In back, a zippered pocket holds maps, tickets and instruction manuals while a Piggy-Back Pocket allows the bag to be slipped over the handle of rolling luggage.

The 5608 has an adjustable, BioCurve shoulder strap and an EasyGrip carrying handle. The bag uses optional Tamrac accessories with the attachment slots for the S.A.S. (Strap Accessory System) products, which customize this compact, professional bag.

    I bought this bag for my growing camera outfit (Olympus E-510, Zuiko 14-54mm, Sigma 55-200mm, Metz flash). I am just an amateur shooter trying to get better and needed a slightly bigger bag than what I was using. I contemplated between a shoulder bag or a backpack style as I do some hiking and want to take my camera with me (the backpack bags were either just too small to hold my outfit or as big as a full-size day pack). Ultimately, through, I went with the Tamrac 5606 because of it's medium size and all of the features and pockets it has. I fit my whole outfit in the bag along with cords, charger, lens bulb, manuals, etc., with room to spare. The construction is top notch - padding, zippers and buckles are all quality pieces. This bag also features a tripod strap along the bottom. Only two things keep me from giving this bag a five-star rating: I wish the interior was yellow like some of the other bags out there to make the interior brighter, and I also wish the shoulder strap was detachable as I sometimes prefer to carry the bag by the handle and don't want the shoulder strap dangling down. My wife says that getting into the bag is like breaking into Fort Knox (three buckles, a zipper, and Velcro). Minor issues at best - this bag has great storage and is a bargain. My father took a look at this and asked me to order one for him as well. You can't go wrong with this one.

    My military unit bought several of these bag to use to carry our camera kits. The bags have a great design but are poorly put together. After a month or two of normal use, the metal D-rings that connected the strap to the bag started breaking when we would pick the bag up. We had to use heavy duty zip ties to fix them. Also the zipper stiching on the front pouch of two of the bag started to unravel and leave holes. I would not recomand this bag as its poor quality has resulted in the damage of expensive photo equipment.

        All my equipment went perfectly in and the access is good. I use it for personal pictures. What i would change with it, is the little flaps, inside, it would be better use if they had velcro on the end, so it would be stable inside instead of always moving around. Bur that all. Thanks.

          This is the second 5606 System 6 Camera Bag I have owned. I gave the first to my daughter and recently bought a second bag. I have travelled overseas and domestically with this bag and have found it to do everything I need. Not only does it hold all of my camera gear but it is easy to carry on my shoulder. It even has extra pockets for things like my cell phone, car and hotel keys, gum, hand sanitizer, etc.......It easily fits under airline seats.

            This is the second Tamrac camera bag I have owned. The first dates from 1980 and carried 2 cameras, motor drive, three lenses, flash, filters and accessories plus 20 rolls of film in the top flap. It served me well for 33 years and I see the same quality and design excellence in the Tamrac 5606. This model easily carries (with room to spare) a digital camera, 3 lenses, my 910 flash, filters, chargers, accessories, flash cards plus my Coolpix as a backup camera. This is a great bag for both amature and professional.

              Nice to be able to lay camera down flat with different length lenses. However the problem is the middle section where the lens crosses. There is no way to put a lens there, you can put a flash upright and a small lens underneath like a 35 or 50mm fixed lens. The drawing the show is a little misleading

                      I bought this for my wife. She runs second camera when we do weddings. This bag is perfect for a DSLR camera with a lens attached, a second lens,a strobe,extra batteries and memory chips. She has plenty of room to store the important items from her purse as well. So she only needs to carry this one bag for our photo shoots. It's light weight and very well made. She loves it!

                        I have owned the System 3 bag for a long time but it isn't quite large enough for my A 850 full frame camera. This System 6 bag is perfect.
                        I can carry this A 850 camera, flash, three lenses and a lot of cables, batteries & CF cards with out crowding.
                        This is a real winner.

                          I travel a lot since I am the owner of a magazine and Editor. I need ton of stuff but it can't be too heavy and too big of a bag. From my cell phone, credit cards, swag, lens camera and more it is perfectly compact and can hold everything I need. Plus the padding was not over done but enough to protect my gear. It was also sealed very well with the clips and zippers. No dust and water in my bag this weekend.

                          One thing I noticed is I carried it for a 3 day festival my back and shoulder did not hurt though if I crossed it over my chest it bugged me. Personally I like it on one shoulder and not crossing over.

                          B&H has the best price for this bag!

                              will fit in there comfortably. Unloading is going
                              to cause something to fall out.

                              The design of the bag is good but it does not accommodate lenses well that are attached to the camera body that are large in diameter. My 28-70 f/2.8 attached to my D800 barely fits and restricts access to other compartments. The D800 with a battery grip attached is not really an option with this bag. I bought it for a trip to travel light. The bag is carrying my D800 with 28-70 attached plus a 70-300 and SB910 flash. I can also squeeze in a 50 and 24 but they are not easily accessed.

                                Love the camera bag. It has so many pockets to put things in. It's lightweight and easy to carry to places.

                                  This was a replacement for a Tamrac Sling Bag I returned. I like it much better. However for a Nikon D600 with a 28-300mm VR Nikon Lens and 2 other lenses that zoom, it is a bit small. For a full frame camera I would suggest going up to Tamrac Pro 8 bag. That one has room for everything. This bag would be good for a D90 and below or APC size camera. Other than that it's great.

                                      I purchased this bag in order to have a second and smaller station for my camera whenever i need to take less equipment. It serves very well for the mission.

                                        It's big enough to hold 3 lens, flash, body, and all the little extra's with great organization. It's big but not oversized and bulky which I hate. Seems to be good quality. Really like it.

                                        I gave up my Canon F1 and got a Canon 60D with 18-200mm, 70-200mm and a 17-55mm lenses. They all fit in this bag with other gear. My old camera gives you an idea of my age and I can handle the weight of my new stuff with this bag.

                                        It is a big bag compaired to what I needed before, but is the smallest to hold what I have now.

                                          I am learning that motorcycle covers and camera bags have one thing in common; you should always get a size up from what ever you think you need. This bag as room for Nikon D800, and 28-300mm lens attached, and 50mm lens and a flash. Thats it! Don't think that you are going to have room for lens attached to the camera and 3 more lens! That is just crazy. I almost wish I had bought the bag one size up that can hold two bodies even though I only have one camera body
