Manfrotto MB OR-BP-30BU overview

  • 1Description

Before hitting the trail on your next adventure, consider the 30L, blue Off road Hiker Backpack from Manfrotto for holding, protecting and organizing your photography gear and travel items. A fully-featured backpack, this one offers an insert, multiple compartments, tripod pocket, shoulder straps, waistband and more.

For starters, the backpack includes a padded, zippered insert with movable touch-fastening dividers for storing a Pro HDSLR with attached 70-200mm zoom lens, an additional lens, and accessories. The fabric-hinged lid closes with a zipper and has a carry handle on top. This insert stows at the base of the backpack inside a designated, side compartment with a zippered-flap. Keeping heavier items on the bottom helps lower your center-of-gravity when carrying the bag, thereby improving your balance and reducing fatigue.

Clothing, food, flashlights, and related personal items store in the main upper compartment above the insert. For weather protection, this compartment seals with a drawstring, and is covered by a large top flap that cinches tight with adjustable, quick-release straps. In the event of precipitation, simply deploy the included waterproof, nylon rain cover which is in matching blue and form-fitted for the backpack. For toting camera supports the backpack offers a side-pocket for larger tripods and elastic cords at the rear for smaller ones. And to greet the great outdoors in style, Manfrotto manufactures tripods and walking sticking in matching, color-coordinated blue.

For stability, structural integrity, and comfort, the Off road Hiker Backpack features two adjustable shoulder straps of 3-D molded foam, as well as a padded adjustable waist band with a smartphone pocket. To reduce unwanted backpack movement, shoulder straps have two adjustable chest straps with quick-connects. In warmer weather, hikers will appreciate the transpiring back system with padded nylon mesh to help wick-away moisture from their backs. When not on your back, the backpack may be carried by its top handle strap.

    Manfrotto MB OR-BP-30BU reviews

    Off road Hiker Backpack (30L, Blue) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 43.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect hiking backpack for gears I wasn't sure about this hiking backpack at first. I purchase this backpack mainly for the hiking trip to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. After 15 days of extended hikes, this hiking backpack proves to be a perfect fit for my needs. I had different configuration of lenses and body in the backpack and it has worked out great every single time. I stored a Nikon 200-500mm lens (without the body) at the bottom and a 24-70mm on the 2nd slot. Brought along a windbreaker and water bag. Had the Nikon D4s strapped on with a 105mm lens on BlackRapid Sport. It is indeed a great hiking backpack!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a photo backpack for real hiking. For years I have hiked with a photo backpack that could carry all of my photo gear. Great for keeping all my gear together but heavy. The Off Road Hiker is well designed for real hiking. I live in central Colorado. With hikes of several miles it is essential to carry cold weather gear, rain gear, food, water, etc. My old backpack had little space for these items. Now I carry my 5D MIII, 1 extra lens, and a few accessories. The camera space is limited but adequate for a day of shooting. The waist strap is wide and comfortable. I could have used more shoulder padding. The tripod strap works well. The chest camera restraint is very handy and the zippered compartments integrated into the waist are helpful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Roomy, comfy and less sweating while wearing The backpack is well made, has a lot of storage capabilities and the best is that with the detached back panel, the back does not heat up (as in some other backpacks I have) and does therefore not suck up the sweat (and does not smell) after some usages. As such for hiking you can easily fit some food, bottles for drinking, a sweater (and other essentials) into the backpack, add the tripod at the back and get the most important outdoor lenses with you. The only annoying downside I have found was that the color of the rain cover: Instead of red it was pink.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bag but... This is a fantastic bag. Fit everything I needed for a day long hike. Carried my tripod well. It was comfortable for a full 15 mile hike. I only have *one* complaint. The outer zipper to the camera compartment broke...like a few miles into its very first hike. Sadly I was traveling throughout the month after I purchased it...so it's now outside the 30 day return policy. I'll see if I can fix the zipper...it's a bummer. The bag still works fine as the inner compartment closes. If worse comes to worse and I need to seal it I can use the rain cover and such. It just really bummed me out that the zipper broke so quickly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for hiking in all types of weather I purchased the backpack and tripod for a trip to Germany. I carried both everyday while hiking through the black forest and up trails to photograph the many castles throughout the Rhine and Mosel Valley. The pack was lighter than i imagined especially when loaded with camera, sense, gear as well as the tripod. It carried, water, snacks and sunglasses as well as light jacket. We got rained on while on a mountain side trail and i had the chance to use the rain cover. It kept everything dry inside. It is much larger than i thought it would be and could easily take along more photography and winter gear. The only recommendation for change would be to have the belt removable to make it easy to use for city use. It gets kind of large when navigating tighter store space in Europe.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bag, could be improved. Excellent backpack. Weight is managed very well. The mesh backing keeps your back off the bag and allows air to easily passthrough (this is a big deal for hiking). The camera storage is great. You'll be hard pressed to find hiking backpacks that have a side camera access like this. Two complaints: 1. Manfroto used two stretchable cords on either side of the bag to secure a tripod... this is a terrible design for any dslr tripod. Most tripods are going to be 2+ lbs plus the ball head. These cords would never last even if they are abel to hold a very light tripod. You can use the two adjustable straps on the side to carry your tripod but these were not designed for this and I don't know how long they'll last. 2. While wearing this bag last weekend hiking (and sweating) the bag left a pink stain on my shirt around the hip belt area and over the shoulders.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Manfrotto Off Road 30L VS Lowepro Photo Sport Pro 30L AW I have used both Manfrotto Off Road 30L and Lowepro Photo Sport Pro 30L AW. While they are somewhat similar in design, their implementation is quite different and a comparison might be useful for people deciding which one to get. 1. Overall construct and build quality. Manfrotto is definitely sturdier in general. In particular, Manfrotto's fabric and stitching are of better quality. Straps and belt on Off Road also feel stronger than the somewhat flimsy Photo Sport Pro. 2. Comfort and feels-like weight. Although Manfrotto's 4.19 lbs is definitely heavier than Lowepro's 3.74 lbs on paper, it feels like a bit lighter either by holding by one hand or loading on both shoulders. I think it's due to its good distribution of weight of load (both bags loaded with two 5D3 with 30-700/4-5.6L and 24-70/2.8L II). Furthermore, Lowepro's waist strap is so flimsy that it's next to useless in terms of load offsetting to hip. Manfrotto's waist strap is closest to what you can expect from a camping backpack. Also there is a waist padding that makes it very comfortable. 3. Photography gear capacity. Lowepro's camera compartment is bigger in dimension. When playing around with the provided dividers, both can be loaded with two 5D3 with 30-700/4-5.6L and 24-70/2.8L II. One good bonus on Manfrotto is that there is a zipped divider between the camera compartment and the upper storage compartment. It's useful when you need to stuff some small things on the top and they will eventually get to the bottom of the Lowepro. 4. General stuff capacity (upper compartment and other pockets). The upper compartments are similar in size for both. There are one side pocket (zipped) and one side bottle net on the Manfrotto's one while there is only one side bottle pocket on the Lowepro's. There is an internal camel pack pocket against the back of the Lowepro's pack where you can fit in a 13 MBP. But for either pack, I think it's better to fit your MBP into a polythene case prior to putting in the pack. 5. Overall design and appearance. I like the Manfrotto better personally. The blue one really stands out. Manfrotto's velcro clip for rolling the extra length of strap is really smart and neat. Lowepro uses wide elastic bands whose appearance match the straps to secure the extra length. It's ok but not fancy. Anyway, they are both great pack for 2 lenses (standard zoom / smaller telephoto zoom) and 1-2 non-gripped DSLR bodies.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Packed to go! Haven't done the big hike yet but after sizing and planning and pre-packing this is the pack that's going with me. Lots of room for other stuff and plenty of options to lash more equipment, this lightweight pack can carry bunches. I gave it four stars only because the camera section is a bit tight. It holds what I need to bring 70-200 2.8, body, 16-35 and a 60 macro but it is a bit of a squeeze trying to take camera and lenses out and put them back in. My flash and filters and other accessories have to go elsewhere in the pack. Also, I would like a few more smaller pockets or some sort of organizer for cards and batteries and such. Overall the pack is well thought out, it fits well and can carry a bunch of stuff.
