The black 5589 Expedition 9x Backpack from Tamrac is designed to carry a pro DSLR with a long telephoto lens attached, additional lenses, camera bodies, flashes and accessories. The pack is made from weatherproof 900 denier PolyTek with a thick, closed-cell foam lining. It has a top section that supports the camera and cinches tightly to the narrow portion of the lens where it attaches to the camera and a bottom section that includes 2 foam-padded, plastic-reinforced vertical dividers and one horizontal divider that can be adjusted vertically to fit varying length lenses and lens shade diameters.

There is a Carry-on Compression System that allows the pack to be made carry-on compatible for U.S. domestic flights. This requires the removal of the camera body from the long telephoto lens.

The Expedition 9x has dual "wing" pockets with water-resistant zippers that organize and provide quick access to important accessories without disturbing the other gear, a Memory & Battery Management System that uses red flags to identify available memory cards and batteries from ones that have been used up and interior mesh pockets for small accessories. There is a QuickClip tripod attachment system that is centered between the wing pockets, while the lower, plastic-reinforced Tripod Foot Pocket holds two of the tripod legs securely. The pack uses M.A.S. (Modular Accessory System) attachment slots allows adding of optional accessories and the S.A.S. (Strap Accessory System) that has optional accessories. There are 4 SpiderTabs that provide additional attachment points for expedition equipment or extra clothing. It is carried by a top handle or a backpack harness with Dual-Density Comfort Pads that provides maximum carrying comfort while the Air Flow Channels help keep the harness cool and dry during extended use. The harness also has an adjustable waist belt, cinch straps on the shoulder harness, an expandable sternum strap for finer adjustments and "D" rings that accept the N-11 optional backpack camera strap.
