The white Stile Collection: Unica VII Messenger Bag from Manfrotto is the kind of quality bag you'll want with you whether on a day trip to the country or international airline journey. On the surface, this bag may appear to be just a garden variety shoulder tote but once examined, you find that it has many features that make it a stand-out among such bags. Let's take a closer look at what the Unica VII offers.

The main compartment is 15.7" (39.9cm) tall and holds a DSLR with a mounted lens in shooting position. In addition, you can also bring along an extra lens, flash, various accessories plus a 17" (43.2cm) Macbook or a 15.4" (39.1cm) laptop - all this in a bag that weighs a mere 2.2 lb (1.0kg). The organizer pocket stores your iPhone, MP3 player, map, pens, computer support cables, batteries, memory cards and sunglasses. That's quite a bundle of gear for a bag. And it's all organized by a system of padded, movable dividers that can be arranged to suit your needs. But it doesn't stop there. Sooner or later, every photographer uses a tripod and this bag will allow to you to store a Manfrotto pocket tripod inside its own space. Now you can get those night or long exposure shots.

There are times when you need instant access to your equipment. You can reach the contents by two methods. First, the main compartment has a rear zipper that is used to quickly get your laptop out for airport security checkpoints. Or, if you prefer, use the quick-release compression clasp to open and close the protective flap that guards the interior of the bag. Made from a water-repellent nylon, the bag is carried by a comfortable, adjustable shoulder strap that has a padded cushion.

The Unica VII Messenger Bag offers you a host of features at a reasonable price that should make it an appealing choice when you're in the market for a lightweight, functional and stylish shoulder bag that is manufactured by Manfrotto, a company with a solid track record of producing high-quality photo gear.

            First day I use this thing and the lining has started to split at the seam. I have requested an RMA. Not good Manfrotto.

            Comments about Stile Collection: Unica VII Messenger Bag (Bungee Cord):

            So I had a problem; got a bunch of toys and not enough hands to hold them when I go out to play. Finding a bag for my 5D2 wasn't so much the issue as finding a bag to fit my gigantic Asus G51 laptop along side it. It may be only a 15.6" laptop but it's so thick and bulky, normal bags could not do the job.

            The Unica VII manages to consume it snugly, but doesn't quite fit the camera as well as I'd hope. I pretty much max the camera compartments with a 5D2 (grip removed) a 70-200 f2.8L IS and Carl Zeiss 50 1,4. In this case both lenses are detached, but the big zoom is still in its sizable pouch.

            I can fit a flash in the little compartment on the bottom along side a portable hard drive and my laptop's ac adapter though, but that pretty much expends all of my storage locations. The bag is JUST big enough for a good walk around kit for a short trip.

            As bad as that sounds, that's perfectly sized for me though. I was initially gonna grab a TT Urban Disgusie 60, but was worried that itd be so gigantic it'd seem like I was carrying my entire house with me under all circumstances. That and its significantly larger price than the Unica made me check my options.

            The (bungee cord) color is probably the worst name for a color ever. I admit that for a moment I worried that I was just buying a strap or something. the color itself is... less than appealing. It looks kind of like a darker shade of the color canon uses for its pouches, like a mixture of green and brown or when you feed your kid too many peas.

            The strap is long and easy enough to adjust, but it's one of those things you gotta play with as you can't really do it on the fly when you decide you don't like the positioning of the unmoving shoulder pad.

            Overall, I really like this bag. If I'm going to a shoot where I need a lot of stuff, then maybe I could use something bigger, but if I'm just casually going to a small gig and just need a couple lenses and my laptop, this is max cozy.

            This is a nice bag, accessing gear is very easy with the top zipper and it is well padded.
            It does however still look like a camera bag and the large buckle on the front is a bit noisy. There is only one small section with 2 dividers for camera gear. The rest of the compartment is nylon lined, so there is very limited flexibility without purchasing an insert if you need additional dividers.

            Giant bag, big enough to fit my Sony Alpha 300 with grip, my 50mm, 18-55mm, and 75-300 lenses. Plenty of padding to protect your gear.

            Only complaint is not enough pockets/space for small stuff like filters, remote releases, and cleaning gear.

            Best bag styling I've seen, doesn't scream, "Expensive camera gear inside!" And it's the best bag I've used. Great bag, must buy!
