    Tamrac 5546 Reviews

    5546 Adventure 6 Backpack (Red/Black) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 45.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just right This is the perfect pack for hikes, city walks or days on the beach. I love the split bag with the lower compartment that provides super fast-and-easy access to my camera when slung over one shoulder. Very few bags on the market like this. Holds essential gear including my Canon DSLR with 70-200 zoom attached (when lower compartment dividers are removed). I agree with other comments suggesting that some straps for a small tripod would be good... but not essential for me. Would love to see the bag in brown/tan to make it less conspicious as a photo bag. Have had my bag for 7 years of active use. Looking to buy another as a backup.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great backpack! I bought the Tamrac 5546 Adventure 6 Backpack because I wanted a light weight camera bag with enough room for the equipment I need with me. It has proven to be perfect for my needs. I have plenty of room for a camera with a lens attached, several extra lenses, a flash and I was able to include a second camera body too. There is enough room in the pockets to hold a variety of filters, cable release and extra batteries and memory cards. The product is light and easy to carry and comfortable. This is an exceptional value and I will highly recommend it o anyone looking for an inexpensive and at the same time a sturdy well built product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small Backpack Makes Traveling Easy This is a great backpack to carry on the plane or train. It's small enough to fit under the seat or above your head, and with the upper compartment and the side nets for water bottles, it makes a compact carry-on. The lower compartment fits my D60 w/ lens, my zoom, and flash with little room to spare. There is room for an extra battery and spare memory cards. Be careful to support the bottom when you unzip the camera bag or it can flip open on you quickly. The straps are well padded and comfortable and easy to adjust. It was well worth the price for this well constructed little backpack.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smaller then expected 5 Stars for being a great bag w/ good craftmanship. I ordered this bag because I was told the Canon 60d w/ 18'135mm lense would fit and still have room for more.... wrong. I wanted a bag I can drop the 60d in w/ lense mounted comfortably. Lense facing down would make the body stick up and putting it sideways leaves barely any room. I can see this back working w/ smaller DSLR and lenses. I really liked the bag and I have no gripes w/ it but it just wanted for me. Best to shop around for a bag having your camera handy to gaurantee fit. I can see this great for something like a T3i w/ 18-55mm.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compare - Tamrac 3385 Hello Everyone, I am going to start with the weakness of the bag and then go over my uses and pluses. That way you will know the weakness right away before getting bored with my information: Weakness, the bottom bag when loaded and top portion when loaded with camera can be awkward to close/open due to the weight on both ends. The access to the bottom is to unsnap the connector and then open the zipper. I have purchased the Tamrac 3385 since then and you will find my comparisons in this review and you can find my review of the Tamrac 3385 on the B&H appropriate page (black version). I bought the 5546 several years ago and I have taken it everywhere (eg Chicago, Disneyland, Texas, backwoods, etc). It has served me well. I have utilized it by loading it up with two cameras and my sunglasses and flight information, etc. You can find me using it with my Nikon D80 (Digital), Nikon N80 (Film), Mamiya 6 (with two lenses), Baldax (Folder camera), Rolleiflex, Fuji 645, Mamiya 645 with several lenses, several folders, etc. This is a very good bag and it is great that it has a pouch in front for such things such as lens cleaners, film, scotch tape (I use it to tape the end of the medium format film), pens, lens filters, etc. The Tamrac 3385 pouch is inside the flap and not as usefull. The Tamrac 3385 was designed with the digital camera in mind. I have had to pack the lens filters in the areas where I could have packed lenses instead (for the Tamrac 3385). I have found the ability to use the space efficiently and it is a small enough bag to take everywhere. The 3385 is a bit bigger and I have not taken it on an airplane yet (but I plan to in July to Colorado Springs) and then on a trip to Vegas in July as well. I like having water bottles on the sides for drinks and I have been able to take most of my shots (the bag has slowed down only a few shots and I missed a coyote going to attack some wild turkeys due to the need to access the camera in the lower bag. I may have been able to get that shot with the 3385 due to the design have side zipper to get to one camera by design (I can get to two cameras by the way I have loaded and the type of cameras I have put on the side zipper). I believe that most people do not think I have cameras in the bag (because it looks like a normal backpack) and therefore they have not tried to steal it. But, I am extra vigilant with the bag and would not let it out of my body's tcuch. The bottom pouch is very difficult to get to for a thief and therefore they would have to steal the bag before getting to anything valuable from there. They will not be able to open a zipper and get to something valuable down below. They could open the top portion without you knowing (experts) and steal something, but that is very unlikely due to the way I hold it (with one strap versus two) and its movements would be hard for them to get at it. I am keeping the 5546 and the Tamrac 3385. I have found them both usefull as I have found medium, 35mm, digital cameras and camcorders usefull. Everything has its own positives and negatives.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not large, but exactly what I needed I will be traveling with a group to China and Tibet and needed a day pack for my camera, extra lens, tripod and personal items. The Adventure 6 Backpack fit the bill. I was able to put my Pentax K3 with 18-135 mm zoom lens, my Pentax 10-17 mm fisheye zoom, filters, spare camera battery and other accessories in the bottom section of the pack. There was room in the top section for a down jacket, snacks and other personal items. I will be strapping a Sirui T-025x tripod to the bottom of the pack. The water bottle goes in one side pocket while the umbrella goes into the other. My raincoat / windbreaker fits under the strap that connects the top and bottom compartments. I was a bit cncerned that the camera equipment and other items might not fit, but this lightweight, compact backpack accommodates all that I want to take on day trips. Construction is excellent. It is comfortable, water resistant and affordable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great idea, just not quite big enough I bought this bag after seeing it in person, and fitting mycamera stuff into it. It is small, but about perfect for thebeginning DSLR user. Without the optional grip on my CanonRebel XTi, it fits very nicely. I actually like the size,but my camera is getting bigger and bigger, with anotherlens, and battery grip. It's a very tight fit now. I'mplanning on replacing this bag with another that has similarfeatures. I don't know how big the Adventure 7 is, but I maygive it a shot. The top compartment is only big enough for,as Tamrac puts it, A light Jacket. That's the truth. Iwanted to be able to carry some more stuff, but with aMag-Lite, and my camera books and stuff that wouldn't fit inthe bottom compartment, it's just not big enough anymore. Itserved its purpose well, though. Problems Encountered: The bag isn't really too small, Tamrac designed it for smallDSLRs and small lenses and accessories, my stuff is growingall the time. it's time for an upgrade. Get it only if youhave a Nikon D40 or D50, a Canon Rebel XTi or Xt, and if youaren't planning on adding much to your camera (battery grip,large lens, or really anything else that is going to stay onyour camera most of the time) I even have to take off mystrap to put my camera in the bag, now. Previous Equivalent Items Owned: None. Items I Recommend: Well, I guess the accessory lash straps for a tripod.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Adequate for camera but small as backpack I wanted an easy way to carry my Sony NEX-6 and lenses, along with a tripod and extra clothing or gear for day hikes. This bag was on sale and, though small, mostly fits my needs. I would definitely recommend it as an alternative to a standard camera bag, and for short day hikes. I especially like the front section, where I can store memory cards and spare batteries. There are tie-ons for strapping a tripod underneath the pack, but this does not make tripod use very easy.
