Just ordered the 'Tamrac Expedition 6' bag. Should be here by the end of the week...

Anyone here using Tamrac? And what do you think of it?

I have had the 5x for a while now and am very happy with it. The zips can get a bit sticky so I would advise rubbing a candle over them to give a bit of lubrication.
The interior design is very flexible with regard to moving dividers around and it comfortably holds 2 DSLRs and about 4/5 lenses. Yours is a bit larger so you should have more than enough space for everything you want to carry with you.
The only real gripe I have with it is the tripod facility is not big enough unless you have a tripod that folds down to about 18"-24". I guess I will have to get a smaller, lighter tripod for occasional travel use.

I have also just ordered the Tamrac Expedition 6 backpack. The reviews of this indicate that it is good.

Damn, my bag never showed up, just got an email - 2 weeks later - that the bag is out of stock... Gotta find another shop and try again.

I have the Tamrac Expedition 8 backpack but haven't used it yet.

There is plenty of room inside for all your lenses.

I am currently using a Lowepro Flipside 400 AW

A pro photographer friend of mine has had the Tamrac Expedition 7 for some time now and she loves it. She's a wildlife photographer and having been with her on several outings I can say she puts her gear through quite a bit of abuse.
