Lowepro products have a lifetime warranty.

I know most companies don't including Tamrac.

I just recieved my Tamrac Expedition 7. More of a hiking backpack for long hauls. As a camera salesmen I prefer the Tamrac over the Lowepro. Lowepro is just as durable so both are good choices

Do you have a picture of how you carray all that equipment in such a small bag? I'm looking for a bag to carry my D50, Sigma 70-300mm, 18-70mm, and 50mm 1.8 in, and you seem to have fit similar sized stuff into that bag.

Oh nevermind. I thought the Mini Trekker was a really tiny bag. I was thinking of a toploader.

I was going to post this EXACT same question. I'm really torn between the Tamrac Expedition 5 and the Lowepro Mini Trekker AW. I've read nothing but RAVE reviews on the Lowepro, but I really like the new look of the Tamrac. However, I have only seen pics of the bags on the web, I haven't seen (touched orexamined)either one up close. And now, unfortunately,I dont have any equipment to try it out with...I planned to orderthe packwith my Canon 20Dpackage,but I canceled my order due to items that were supposedly "in stock" suddenly on back-order (more about that, and avoiding Adorama Camera on a different thread).

I did find this during my inquiry on the Lowepro Mini Trekker...

http://www.cambags.com/canon/300d_10...ekker_desc.htm

Here's one of the pics from that webpage...



There are 11 diferent examples of (Canon) equipment packed into the Lowepro...but the website has examples withNikon camerasas well.

Now I need to findain-depth reviewon the Tamrac EXP-5!!

Tamrac's website seems to have quite good pics.

But here's something from Tamrac's Expedition 5 and other models.

Well, made my decission...



The KATA R-102 RUCKSACK





The two things I like about it is a very subdued appearance and QUICK ACCESS to the camera!!



A full review with additional pics can be seen here...

I got it for $139.00 at www.desktopdarkroom.com

I am going to recommand the Lowepro Minitrekker too, I just got one recently and its just an amazing bag. I can put Minolta 5D + 300 f4, a 28mm, a 50mm, a 28-135mm Minolta(those who has this knows how big this is), a 70-210 f4 "beercan", AND a Maxxum 7 film body+grip, in the bag itself, and I can put films, accessory flash, spare battery+chargerin the front compartment.....

Amazing bag, you won't regret getting one of these...
