From the Manufacturer
First instituted in our professional lens cases many years ago, Dual-Foam Technology is used in many of our bags today. It combines closed-cell foam to provide maximum shock protection with open-cell foam for vibration dampening and a custom fit.
Memory and Battery Management System
Many of our camera bags feature the patented Memory and Battery Management System, which provides quick access to memory cards, batteries and accessories. This unique system uses red flags to identify available memory cards and batteries from ones that are used up.
Total Coverage Tops
Many Tamrac bags offer triple protection against rain, dust and sand. Our Total Coverage Tops offer triple protection against the elements by providing three levels of security: hook and loop closures for quick access, EasySqueeze quick-release buckles for security, and a zipper closure for the ultimate weather protection.
Strap Accessory System (S.A.S.)
Tamrac's Strap Accessory System has components that attach to the shoulder straps of most of our camera bags and backpacks to allow photographers to personalize and customize their carrying systems.
Modular Accessory System (M.A.S.)
This system allows photographers to customize and personalize their backpacks, shoulder bags, and cases by using accessories that quickly attach to the many Tamrac products that feature the M.A.S. attachment slots. These accessories will also attach to any belt or to Tamrac's Modular Accessory Belt.

Top Customer Reviews
The bag is sturdy and well-padded with a top handle and an adjustable shoulder strap. The top is held closed with quick-release nylon buckle for fast extraction of your camera but can also be zippered closed for added protection from the elements. Great bag for short trips!
I did an Internet search for Tamrac products when I got home and found that they have a huge and varied product line of camera and video bags, many more than I saw in the store. Since I now knew of their quality, I simply picked a Tamrac bag by the advertised features, size and price.
The Tamrac Explorer 2 is fairly small, but ideally sized to carry my Nikon D80 DSLR with a 18-135 Nikkor zoom attached. There is also enough additional room for a good sized flash and an extra lens. And, there's plenty of space for small things like extra memory cards, batteries, cables, etc.
My camera's body with the lens attached measures a total of 6.25 inches long (back of camera body to end of attached lens), 4 inches tall (camera body base to hot shoe) and 5 inches wide. This bag will accept a camera body that is even wider than that, but the 6.25 inch total length is close to the max that this bag will comfortably handle. If your camera/lens combination is longer than that, you will want to look at a larger bag, if you intend to carry your camera with the lens attached.
Finally, this is a bag that should last you many years with only minimal care. It is solidly built from quality materials. Just keep in mind that the size of this bag is suitable for just one camera body, a couple of lenses (one attached to the camera body), a flash attachment and the assorted small items that support a DSLR system. If you want to carry more than this, get a larger bag.
Strap could be a bit longer IMO, I like to put the strap over my head and carry it on the other shoulder so it will not slip off.. just not long enough to keep top of bag as low as I like, but still works just fine.
I'm 6 foot and wear a size 42 long jacket as reference if that helps at all.
I would suggest that you go by the actual inside measurements rather than Tamrac saying WHAT it will hold. Not sure just what lenses and flash units they are testing with, but seem to be of smaller size than what I have in use.
Normally, I carry a backpack type camera bag to hold all my gear, but now and then find I don't need everything with me and would still like to protect my gear and keep it ready for quick use.
I stepped up from the Explorer "1" to this size just as I was about to order, because I wanted plenty of room and it's not quite what I thought in that area based on how many items they state it will hold.
This does hold a Cannon 20D or 40D with battery grip plus shorter lens like the 17-85. (Don't pull the velcro divider straps all the way flat)
a full size flash and flash grip, along with extra batteries, memory cards etc.
They do make various, smaller, add-on cases that can mount on the strap and that works well also if you need to carry more items.
One feature I messed up on.... I started looking at smaller Tamrac bags and they featured a way to strap to your belt along with a shoulder strap and I like that in my other bags.Read more ›
After some research I found this bag, Fits my Nikon D90 + MB80 and the 18-105mm /70-210mm lens attached.It can snugly fit my 50mm on the side. I already have the explorer 1 bag which is also good, but does not fit the camera with battery grip.
You can buy extra cases that can attach to the sides of this bag as well.
