Tamrac Expedition Backpack 8x, Black

The Expedition 8x is Tamrac's largest pack for carrying the most extensive collection of photo equipment and most 17" screen laptops. The main compartment is completely foam padded with numerous adjustable, foam-padded dividers to protect multiple pro-size digital or film SLRs with lenses attached, 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 holds the lens firmly in place. Three 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.AA new foam-padded front pocket with water-resistant zipper protects laptops with up to 17" screens and provides easy access without disturbing photo gear. Tamrac's Dual Hinge Divider System adjusts to allow two digital or film SLRs to be carried with lenses attached. Dual "wing" pockets with water-resistant zippers organize and provide quick access to important accessories without disturbing your other gear. These "wing" pockets also feature Tamrac's U.S.- patented Memory & Battery Management System that uses red flags to identify available memory cards and batteries from ones that have been used up. The QuickClip Tripod Attachment System cradles a tripod (centered and balanced) securely between these pockets while the lower, plastic-reinforced Tripod Foot Pocket holds two of the tripod legs secure.Tamrac's state-of-the-art harness system with Dual-Density Comfort Pads provides maximum carrying comfort while Air Flow Channels help keep you cool and dry during extended use. This pack is also equipped with a BioCurve dual pivoting waist belt to provide a wide range of adjustment.

The harness also features "D" rings that accept Tamrac's optional backpack camera strap (Model N-11).
