The Tamrac 5588 Expedition 8x Backpack (Black) is a medium size pack that offers foam-padded protection and quick access to multiple SLR cameras, lenses, flash, accessories and a 17" laptop computer. It is made from double coated, weatherproof 900 denier PolyTek fabric.

Two 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.

The 5588 QuickClip tripod attachment system is centered between the wing pockets, while the lower, plastic-reinforced Tripod Foot Pocket holds two of the tripod legs secure. It is carried by a carry handle or harness. Dual-Density Comfort Pads on the harness provide maximum carrying comfort while Air Flow Channels help keep the harness cool and dry during extended use. There is also an adjustable waist belt, expandable sternum strap for finer adjustments and "D" rings that accept an N-11 optional backpack camera strap. The backpack has M.A.S. (Modular Accessory System) attachment slots that allow you to add optional accessories and S.A.S. (Strap Accessory System) optional accessories that allow you to customize the bag.

    Mother of all camera packs

    I've only had my Expedition 8 for six months. I had previously used an Expedition 5 for two years, but outgrew it. I still keep and use the Exp-5 for light trips.

    I am a backpack abuser. I overstuff bags until they are ready to burst just sitting on the ground. I have probably gone through more bags than lens tissue.

    I love this bag (Exp-8). I carry 3x digital bodies (1D MkIIn/5D/20D), 4x strobes, 5x lenses, 4x chargers, 3x spare camera batteries and 2x battery packs, cards, accessories, tools, cables and cleaning supplies... with room to spare for a fourth body and a point-and-shoot.

    Even with all this gear, I have never heard a seam pop, or a thread stretch. This bag is built like a tank. Even the top handle is plenty strong, and wide for comfort.

    The front pocket is large enough to hold my enormous 17" wide-screen laptop loosely; however, I don’t use this pocket for my computer.

    Flat storage inside the main flap is more than adequate for most any accessories. The dual front wing pockets accommodate small items that are not so flat.

    The tripod foot pocket and accompanying straps are odd. This system can only accommodate a very small tripod, or a monopod. A large professional tripod placed in this pocket would extend a full foot and a half above the wearer’s head. I prefer to carry my pods in a separate slung bag, which just frees up this pocket for more storage, i.e. cleaning supplies.

    The zippers have never fouled on either pack, and they are sealed for weatherproofing. There is also a drawstring rain flap for the main compartment zipper. The zipper straps are always getting caught in the other zippers; however, they aren’t really needed, so I should just cut them off… but I haven’t.

    The big advantage of the Exp-8 and 7 over the 4, 5 and 6 is the true padded waist belt with lumbar pad. This belt takes the weight off your shoulders in true “frame-pack” fashion, plus it has multiple adjustment points per strap. The 4, 5 and 6 simply have a flat-webbing belt. My Exp-5 with two bodies and lenses in it would destroy my back and shoulders within the hour; however, I can go eight hours plus with my new Exp-8 fully loaded per above.

    I chose the Exp-8 over the 7 for comfort. I am a slender 6’2”, 205 Lbs., and the Exp-7 just felt short on me. After filling up the Exp-8, I was definitely happy that I ordered the bigger of the two.

    I still use hard cases for airlines and shooting from a boat; but in all other situations, this is the bag to have if you have the gear to fill it.

    PROs:
    -can simultaneously fit (vertically) a 70-200L IS II lens attached to body, and a 50L lens attached to body
    -nicely protects laptop
    -overall solid construction

    CONs:
    -I'm 5'5" and the length of the 8x was just too big for me (e.g. the lumbar support would not align with my back regardless of how I adjusted the straps)
    -definitely over the carry-on allowance for regional flights

    I'm a big fan of Tamrac backpacks, but I ultimately had to return this one (and instead go for a Think Tank Airport International).

    Amazing photo backpack.

    By Brian

    from Indianapolis

    Comments about Tamrac 5588 Expedition 8x Backpack (Black):

    If you need a large bag for traveling, hiking, or just a bag to hold lots of stuff, look no further. There is a size range for the expedition series that fits every size need, but the 8x is awesome. I have so much equipment and the 8x was able to hold everything. It is a very large bag, but the extremely high quality and heavily padded straps make it a very comfortable pack to wear. This bag will last for years, and has so many pockets for all the little things a photographer would have in addition to bodies and lenses. Well worth the price.

    This is a great bag. Great construction. Looks like it will last for years. However this bag is big so carrying this bag all day may be a problem. Also bigger than Airlines will allow for carryon. No problem with my D7100 with 1500 - 500mm attached, D90 body, 70 - 200mm and several more lens, flash and 2 battery charges, filters and extra batteries. Great for storing or transporting your kit. Not easy to access you equipment in the field unless you take it off your back and set it down.

    Comments about Tamrac 5588 Expedition 8x Backpack (Black):

    The majority of my photography is in the great outdoors and requires a lot of travel on foot to reach my destinations. This bag has become my top choice. It has the capacity to hold all the gear I need plus the gear I would need if I were to leave it behind.

    This bag was made with a purpose in mind. It was made for the able-bodied pack mule of a man or woman capable of carrying heavy loads of gear on their back. With that said, if you don't fit into that category, you may want to consider a smaller bag or working out before loading this bag down with pro gear and heading out on a hike. If you do fit into that category or don't use pro gear (which can get pretty heavy) then this bag is a great choice.

    This one big case. Don't think I would want to carry this all day. You can store and carry a lot of lens (even a large telephoto or two), two bodies and all the extras you need. Will use when I travel on vacation, etc. Still need a small day case. Looks like great construction and should last for a long time. But remember this will be heavy to carry in the field. To big for carry on if you fly.

    Love this bag. Used to have the 5x, which unfortunately got stolen. One thing I like about this one over the 5x is the waist harness and the padding. Sometime when I had a lens in the center bottom spot in my 5x, it would dig into my back. The padding and overall customization of this 8x is awesome.
    Tamrac makes some of the best bags out there.

        Comments about Tamrac 5588 Expedition 8x Backpack (Black):

        There is nothing "medium sized" about this thing. Definitely the biggest SLR backpack I have ever seen. That being said, it is also a perfect fit for my needs. I shoot DSLR video using a Canon 6D and a Canon 1DC. I currently have 3 lenses as well as a stock of batteries, cards, filters, etc. Everything fits perfectly in here with room to grow. The backpack fits very comfortably on my back and has plenty of padding. The straps are easy to adjust and allow you to get the backpack into the perfect spot on your back. I love the quick access pouches on the outside for batteries/cards, as well as the tripod mount.

        My only complaint is the zippers around the battery/card quick access compartment. They are lined in this plastic/rubber stuff (I guess to make it more waterproof?), but that sometimes makes those zippers difficult to operate. May seem like a little thing, but those are the 2 zippers I use the most on the backpack.

          Plenty of space for 2 cameras and several lenses, a little heavy when fully loaded but you can carry everything you need. The adjustable straps are great. I have been using two shoulder bags to carry my gear, and when walking on the trails you can become unbalanced, but with this backpack I remain stable. Wish I had had bought it sooner.

            When I first got this 5588 Expedition 8x Backpack I was worried it was too big for me. After adjust the inside pockets to fit my equipment (2 camera bodies, 4 lenses, plus more) Everything fit perfect and still room to grow. It is a little heavy as I am 5'2" but for the equipment that I carry that is to be expected. But once you have it on your back it adjust great and fits comfortable. I love it and love the fact you dont need an extra rain jacket for this product because of the pocket design. I love the extra cushioning on the straps and lumbard. Great all around backpack! I am very happy with my purchase and the B&H representative that helped me place my order was super helpful!

              This backpack is huge, but it still fits in a typical overhead compartment on an airplane. It's tough, comfortable and versatile. Couldn't be more satisfied. This backpack is also comfortable enough to be used on longer trips and hikes.

              Only con for some might be the net weight of the bag itself.

                    All this fits in the backpack and leaves room for a flash and some more equipment. The second pocket can room my smaller laptops (up to 15.4") but not my 18.4". The two smaller front pockets are really great for storing the smaller things like memorycards, camera batteries ect.
                    The tripod is easily attached to the straps with two legs fitted into the lower front pocket.
                    Overall a very high quality product that is comfortable to wear for longer hikes. The gear is well protected and easily accessed. It's also small enough to bring as hand-luggage on a plane.

                    Pros:
                    -Fits plenty of gear
                    -Small enough to bring as hand-luggage
                    -Comortable
                    -All the zippers are high quality YKK

                    Cons:
                    -The click straps are hopeless to open when wearing gloves

                        I am doing day hikes from various campsites up to eight miles a day. I am quite familiar with backpack gear though this is my first large camera pack. This pack works great. It is designed very well with plenty of ability to adjust areas to various size lenses and cameras etc. The pack has many adjustments to meet my size 5'3" or my husband 5'11". The pack is extremely well made. My camera and lenses are very protected.

                            PROs:
                            -can simultaneously fit (vertically) a 70-200L IS II lens attached to body, and a 50L lens attached to body
                            -nicely protects laptop
                            -overall solid construction

                            CONs:
                            -I'm 5'5" and the length of the 8x was just too big for me (e.g. the lumbar support would not align with my back regardless of how I adjusted the straps)
                            -definitely over the carry-on allowance for regional flights

                            I'm a big fan of Tamrac backpacks, but I ultimately had to return this one (and instead go for a Think Tank Airport International).
