    Manfrotto MB MA-TRV-BW reviews

    Advanced Travel Backpack (Brown) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 47.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Who knew I'd like a backpack? Bought as a secondary bag for smaller nature-type shots. I usually pack A LOT and use a rolling bag for most shoots, but needed a quick shoot bag. Like the side access - just sling it back over to your left, and you can get to what you need pretty quick. Stability straps, two ways to hold tripods (larger can be attached to rear, smaller can go in side pocket). Convenient size, I'm a medium woman, so it was good to find one that didn't dwarf me. Former backpacks I'd experienced (and why I'm biased) would become unzipped as you walked, or were far too floppy or not protective enough. This bag solved those issues.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great, lightweight backpack The Manfrotto Advanced Travel Backpack is perfect for 3-4 lenses, accessories, a small travel tripod and even a light jacket. It is far roomier than it looks and is well balanced on my shoulders. I debated between this backpack and another more expensive Manfrotto backpack that could hold more gear, but I feel this smaller backpack is perfect for me. I saw a few videos that showed this bag fitting a 70-200 f/2.8 and few other FF lenses with room to spare that was when I decided to purchase it. Also, it held my 15 MacBook Pro with no problem although the specs claim only a 13 computer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cant beat it...for now. I use this bag for everyday needs traveling from place to place, always have my camera with me to capture whatever my heart desires. There is enough room to fit 2x DSLR's and or 1x DSLR & Mirrorless + plus MacBook Air, Surface or std. 15 laptop and other little accessories. The tripod compartment is great and you can also strap it on the back for easy access. Overall great product, just be careful not to over do it with the side pockets, the zipper can not handle the bulk and if you force it might break or unlatch, but not a deal breaker. I had this bag for over 2x weeks and so far so good.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect I was in love with this backpack when I first purchased it, so comfortable and very versatile with two separate compartments and a large expandable side pocket for fitting a tripod. The top inner compartment can be used to pack stuff like some extra t-shirt and such while travelling or you can fit another divider element like I did (see the pics). The bottom compartment can also be configured for your needs, or you can even join these two compartments to make it one large empty bag. BUT here is the major downside, after several months of heavy usage (I travel a lot with my equipment and this bag was killing it) almost all of the zippers went dead, one by one!! falling apart along the seams (see the pics) Very poor manufacturing I'm afraid.. I wouldn't give two stars if this wasn't a real big flaw but zippers are life and death imho.. This bag has one job, it should securely hold our expensive gear, and I don't think you should trust this one if you're a heavy user.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A versatile camera backpack I've used this backpack a few times for photo shoots. It appears to be exactly what I was looking for. Ir can be used as a regular backpack if you remove the dividers. This bag can be used to carry camera equipment and some personal items. I have found it convenient and comfortable to use. Usually I just carry 2 lenses and a camera plus the usual other possibly needed items: reflectors, filters etc. I'm also planning to use it when I travel to carry more equipment. So far the only thing I don't like is that the belt is not sturdy and I'm a little concerned about how it will work when I carry more stuff.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT BACKPACK Long ago I bought this backpack and so far I feel very happy with it is very comfortable and has very well made finishes. At the moment I take my camera, the objectives and the additional accessories to it also my laptop and with all this weight the backpack is still intact without damages by the use. I totally recommend it. -------- Hace tiempo a tras compre esta mochila y hasta ahora me siento muy contento con ella es muy cmoda y tiene acabados muy bien hechos. Actualmente llevo mi cmara, los objetivos y los accesorios adicional a ello tambin mi laptop y con todo este peso la mochila sigue intacta sin daos por el uso. La recomiendo totalmente.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent. I use this to haul around two Fujifilm X-T2s and six lenses and a flash or two. It is superb. The only issue is that you need to remember to zip everything up and snap the side straps before you carry it. Not that anything has happened, but it is something to be concerned about. Others have worried about the longevity of the zippers and I wish they were better sown in. But mine travelled on my back on Moscow's and Washington's metros and busses every day for the last five months and has weathered everything. The bottom line is that it is the best large camera bag I have used in 50 years of photography. And the most comfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Near Perfect Travel Bag Like many others, what started as a casual hobby resulted in an ever-growing collection of equipment (lenses, tripods, remote triggers, speedlights...).I had just picked up my first Canon L lens (EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM) and finally admitted that I had outgrown my LowePro Slingshot 102AW. The bag struggled to close with the new glass, and I was stuffing primes where they shouldn't be stuffed. All the equipment was too heavy for one shoulder, and hanging a tripod externally just made everything sit off balance. Worst of all, whenever I flew, I had to carry a backpack in addition to the SlingShot in order to bring my non-camera stuff.Enter the Advanced Travel Backpack. Here we have an incredibly thoughtful, practical design with durable construction and (relatively) good looks. I wore it all day to an F1 race without any fatigue, and even had room for some bottles of water, my tablet, and a container of earplugs. My favorite features:- Side zipper access to all your goodies without having to take the backpack off- Laptop slot that fits a 15 laptop, tablet, or folio- Lots of storage (I pack my 70D with 4 lenses, a speedlight, cables, extra batteries, chargers, with a lot of room for more)- Fits under seat on flights- Perfectly fits the Manfrotto BeFree Compact Travel Tripod- Exterior tripod mount for larger tripods/better balance- Durable construction- Comfortable straps and load distributionAfter 3 months of use, I only have a few minor complaints:- The included rain cover is separate from the bag; I liked the sewn-in rain cover on the SlingShots that you could just pull from the bottom and have it on in less than 5 seconds- No dedicated SD or CF pockets inside; all your cards will be floating around in one of the zippered pockets. Not a huge issue, but I miss the organization offered by the SlingShot.- Lots of straps that seem to hang off, though not unlike most backpacks these days.I purchased this bag as part of the rebate with the BeFree tripod and both were really designed with the traveling enthusiast in mind. I'm so glad that I can finally carry all my equipment plus the extra items I need on the plane or in the field!
