          Comments about Manfrotto Advanced Tri Backpack S (Small):

          I have finally found a small day backpack that can also carry a full sized tripod. I have gone through many bags in the past but I have really enjoyed this one. Perfect bag for a mirroless set up or a smaller DSLR. Minimal gear with plenty of room for other things up top. You can also collapse the top compartment and remove the dividers, making it a regular backpack for daily use. Overall, great quality bag that gets the job done.

          I have just got into the world of M4/3 prior to that I had a Nikon D7000 which I absolutely miss but don't miss the bulkiness.Bought myself a little Panny GX7 and just cannot put this little gem down. My gear consists of 12-35 f2.8, 45-200 f4-5.6, FL360 Flash, batteries and various filters.I was looking for a small backpack that would fit all this gear plus a compact tripod, all the ones I was looking at from Lowepro etc were just a little too big or was not my style. Whats the point of having a CSC when you have a massive bag? And just a month or so ago came along this Manfrotto new release bag and boy am I a happy camper! I couldn't wait to get my hands on this so I ordered it here and was delivered within a week to Sydney. It was better than I thought, build quality and features of this bag are hard to beat especially for the price. Zippers have a nice feel as they are curved & branding is all over the bag. It fits my gear just right and has room for another lens that I will getting soon (25mm f1.4) Padding is more than adequate and is fully modular. Can also be converted into a sling and you can be left or right 'shouldered', just tuck away the strap you don't need! Unlike most slings they are usually one sided which I hate. For rainy days it comes with a nice cover and for your compact tripod it has extra straps. Manfrotto truly thought about this one and definitely appeals to M4/3 users (IMO) as I cannot see much DSLR gear fitting into this even though they say it will. I have included a few snaps so you can see my setup and packing into it.Good luck in your quest cheers!

          Comments about Manfrotto Advanced Tri Backpack S (Small):

          This is my new hiking bag, as I don't like to carry a lot of gear on long/technical ridges. The ability to change the strap configuration is really helpful for when I'm doing different difficulties of hikes/climbs and the pockets make it very easy to access filters, batteries and other quick-change items. The side openings allow you to configure for either left or right-hand opening and does make for easy access to the camera if not the extra lenses. I had a little trouble setting up the internal foam dividers for right-handed usage because of where the hook velcro tabs were, but have managed a workable compromise that I like.
          The only down side is that I nearly had to return the bag and go one size larger. I use a 6D with a 24-105 lens that had UV and polarizing filters on it - that was too long to fit across the bag and I had to drop off one of the filters to make it fit. I don't particularly care for changing filters on hikes, but to me it is worth it to have this sturdy bag. The upper compartment doesn't hold a large water bottle, but it will accept your wallet, phone, SD cards and car keys easily. Basically, if you don't want to carry a computer/tablet, don' t need a lot of gear and don't have a very large lens, this is a great compact bag that is well made for outdoor activities. If you need more space, I'm sure the medium and large sizes are just as well-built!
