Photo gear may also be accessed from a convenient, zippered compartment on the top of the pack. This compartment is easily configured for storing items requiring quick access. Stay hydrated with the elastic water bottle pocket on the side of the pack, or store the base of a tripod inside the zippered pocket on the opposite side. An adjustable strap above this pocket secures the upper part of the tripod. Or, if you prefer, store your tripod on one of the waist belt hip pad straps.

Carry your Pro Light Bumblebee-130 Camera Backpack by the top and side strap handles, or wear with the padded shoulder straps, chest connector, and waist belt. Daisy chain, gear attachment straps are located on each shoulder strap and the top of the pack as well. A padded back panel helps reduce discomfort from shock and improves cooling airflow. A rain cover is included with the pack. Water-resistant nylon construction ensures strength and durability.

Manfrotto Bumblebee-130 Reviews

Not comfortable

I bought this a couple months ago. Although the design is what I was theoretically looking for, backpack is super heavy if you use on a daily basis. I bought to resolve back pain, but it made it worse

A great, 'hold it all' solution.

Bought it for a trip to the Rocky Mountains. All-in, (full size dslr, plus 4 lenses and support items) a fairly heavy solution as the bag itself has substance of its own. Excellent build quality. While the zip-up pocket on the front offers but minimal space, the wrap-around one at the top proves very convenient. The side pocket is also a bit narrow, but is also deep; good for stashing filters and other low-profile items. One reason for selecting this was the laptop pocket. I've an Asus 15, and it just barely fits. (good for storing until you get to the hotel, but, couldn't imagine carrying it around all day on a shoot) Very confident in the bag's ability to protect my gear. The waist strap is re-enforced at the hips for stabilization; a very nice touch. Interior adjustment options abound, so, easy to configure to your particular set-up. I would certainly recommend this as a solution.

A little disappointed

Nice bag but not really made for short people. I'm 5' tall, so the waist can't be adjusted like it should. The description says it has the pouch on one waistband like the 230, but it doesn't. I was really hoping it did. Manfrotto needs to add it to the 130 and add some more adjustments for us short people.

Ultimate Backpack!

Great recommendation from B&H. Plenty of compartments, great zipper system and comfortable to wear.

I decided I needed a backpack that held more gear than my Tamrac Velocity day pack could hold. I'm very impressed by the Manfrotto Pro Light Bumblebee 130 camera backpack. It hold several lenses and my Nikon d7100, plus my laptop and other gear. The shoulder straps work well for me, even when it's fully loaded with gear. I'd certainly buy it again.

Nice fashionista bag.

This is a very nice looking bag, great for city/suburban use where it wont get set down in the mud or sand, as the black, textured outer fabric wont shed major grime easily. Said fabric is also on the thin side (you can see a single layer of it by opening the side tripod pouch), so be careful not to snag it on a branch or cactus spines (my neck of the woods. Zippers are fairly light duty, but probably adequate. Interior side of front flap is featureless; some clear or mesh pockets for little stuff would have been nice. Comfort level on is not up to Think Tank or Lowe Pro standards, but not bad. So much for the iffy stuff. I chose this bag because its size and interior layout came closest to what I was looking for for my Nikon F4S outfit (6 prime lenses). The bag profile narrows toward the top, so getting a full-size pro SLR/DSLR nestled comfortably in the top-access area can be problematic, but my F4S with 50mm f/1.4 fits with the lens oriented toward the top of the bag. The movable divider arrangement is pretty standard and flexible. The rain cover comes rolled up in a mesh bag and takes up a lens slot. I took the cover out of the bag, partially unrolled/flattened it and stuffed it in the otherwise mostly useless, shallow, exterior front storage area. The zippered interior-access choices are genuinely clever and useful. Those with big SLR/DSLRs should note that many bag makers are illustrating their seemingly voluminous interiors filled with the more compact mirrorless systems. The 130 fits my gear nicely (by double-stacking short lenses, filters in stack-caps, etc.), but with zero real estate left over. The extra capacity of the 230 was tempting, but Im glad I resisted the urge; more toys is nice in theory, but you also have to be able to lift and walk with it. Leave the kitchen sink at home and lug nothing you wont really need for the particular photo shoot at hand.   While Ill still be looking for my dream bag (a little beige canvas, no-coddling-necessary number), the 130 is a nice, semi-formal bag for those occasional shave-and-lose-the-jeans shoots. I definitely recommend it!

Good but not great

Waist padding could be much better, side pads have a very hard material beneath the padding. Front straps should be heavier material, especially the bottom one. Odd arrangement for carrying a tripod. On the plus side, lots of room in the main pack with lots of adjustibility. I can get my D850 with a long lens in plus an number of other lenses and flash. Looks to be well constructed, hopefully it will stay that way.

I never tough to switch from Lowel to Manfrotto, but I did

I have used Lowepro bags for ages, I went to BH store in NYC last month and I saw all the bags, I went one by one, trying to find the ultimate bag and I believe is this one, is not as big as others but is perfect to travel with equipment, I don't travel with a lot of lenses, but I travel with a DSLR, one or two lenses depends on the job I am shoting I choose wisely the lenses I will take with me, a Drone and a controller, a 360 camera with lots of batteries from all the equipment, and in this bag all fit perfectly, and is comfortable in the back, seems like Manfrotto really put time in the designing table on it, it is really designed well, in the past what I did not like of Lowepro was the padding on those bags I broke at least two lenses, thsi bag seems well cushioned and the padding looks thick, exactly what I was missing, I know is tight for a lot of photographers, but if you guys are like me, very oorginized with your jobs and like to travel in small sizes, see this option you will love it as I did.

The description says that one of the waist straps has a pouch. The pictures do not show this on the 130. The 230 does show this. Does the 130 actually have this pouch on the waist strap?
Asked by: Stephanie
Yes there is a pouch on the waist belt for the 130. We just do to have a photo showing the pouch which is on the right side.

Will this fit a D500 or D850 w/ grip?
Asked by: Dale
I don't know how many lenses you have. My camera is Sony a7s II, now there are four lenses, there is still a lot of space. The package is still well designed and has a very good backpack.
