The black Pro Backpack 20 from Manfrotto holds a DSLR with an attached 70-200 f/2.8 lens, three additional lenses, a flash, and an extra DSLR body between padded dividers in the main compartment. It also accommodates a 13" laptop inside a dedicated laptop pocket at the back, and a tablet inside a padded zippered pocket on the inside of the front flap. For quick access to your gear, the front flap opens all the way down to reveal the main compartment. For further convenience, the Pro Backpack features numerous exterior and interior pockets.

Made from water-repellent Cordura nylon, this Pro bag features a multi-layered construction and a front shield that, along with four shock-absorbing feet, better diverts impact away from the middle of the bag. For further impact protection, the Pro bag features red rigid padded interior dividers that are built to withstand impact within the middle of the bag and maintain the interior shape.

For convenience when traveling, there is a nylon-webbed trolley strap at the back. For carrying the bag, there is a detachable adjustable shoulder harness with an included waist belt and sternum strap, and a grab handle at the top. Additionally, a removable rain cover is included for inclement weather.

      I was looking for a good bag for my 6D, 24-105, 17-40, 24mm, and 50mm, along with lens hoods, flash, tripod and iPad. This fits them all and is nicely laid out. I tried it on a 2 mile hike and it worked ok. I think the straps could use a little more padding, but overall, it did the job. I have 2 other bags; a Kata 3N1-10 and a Lowepro Flipside Sport 10L. Surprisingly, the Kata fits all the camera items (except the iPad) and is a smaller form factor. The Kata can be used as a sling bag also, which is nice, but because it isn't laid out as straightforward as the Manfrotto, it's a bit more cumbersome to get to everything. The Lowpro is a little smaller than either of the others, and would be good for a day hike with 2-3 lenses and a tripod. Both the Kata and Lowpro seem to have better padding on the shoulder straps. I think the Manfrotto would be better suited to carrying all your gear through and airport or for packing it for a road trip, but I think the Kata or Lowpro would be better for a hike. Build quality is good (Manfrotto and Kata are both part of the Vitec group). Like some others here, I'm struggling to find the perfect bag, but I'm finding that it all depends on what you're going to shoot that day; do you want to bring everything or just a couple of lenses. If I'm heading into NYC for the day, I might just want a sling bag and a lens or two. If heading out for a longer excursion, the Manfrotto would easily hold everything.

      I thought I would have plenty of room for my gear, but that is not the case. I have a tough time getting my DSLR, 70 - 200, 10 - 22, 24 - 70 lenses and a flash to fit. I wish I would have purchased the larger backpack for more space.

      Something to think about, to maximize the use of the bag, the 70 - 200 mm lens needs to be on the body, and I use the 24 - 70 mm lens the most. So I frequently have to change the lens, just to get started.

            This is a premature review as I haven't yet fully used the Manfrotto 20 at full capacity. I do love how it does fit my 15" Macbook pro. I was worried the 20 would not. But it does with space to spare! It also fits my Edelkrone slider!

              Its nice and tidy and strong. Good protection where its needed. Love the fact that you can carry it and when need be, if you set it down, it stands upright. Awesome protection inside the bag and plenty of room for my Nikon DSLR and lens, MBP and iPad as well as all chargers too. Great design and comfortable when carrying too.

                I've been looking for a bag to carry my photo equipment on extended trips (2-3 weeks). This bag carries my Nikon DSLR with zoom lens two additional lenses, a 15 inch laptop, a tablet, batteries and chargers. It also has ways of carrying a tripod strapped on the outside of the backpack. The built quality is excellent, great materials and extremely flexible arrangement(s). It also has a luggage sleeve and comes with a rain cover. I am looking forward to my next trip

                      For years I have travelled with Billingham canvas shoulder bags, but find this backpack is excellent for long haul air travel and sightseeing on foot. Small enough to call hand luggage, roomy enough to stow everything I need. Some forethought, however, is necessary at the packing stage, as items stowed at the bottom are less easily accessible.

                      I like the layout of the bag and the various straps and compartments too. My only complaint is that it gets rather heavy very quickly once you add in all your gear. I think it will hold up well.
