The Expedition 8X backpack (model 5588 ) is one of the largest made by Tamrac. I tend to prefer smaller packs like the Tamrac Pro Digital Zoom 10 for my frequent, short forays from the vehicle (refer to my January 8, 2012 blog post for a review). However, I still need a large camera backpack for longer hikes and to carry my equipment on location.
The Tamrac Aero Speed Pack 85 Dual Access Photo / Laptop Backpack was designed for carrying photography equipment along with a laptop. The innovative Dual Access System™ allows fast access through the side door when the pack is worn over one shoulder. Like a traditional photo backpack, equipment can also be accessed through the front panel when the pack is removed.
