Manfrotto Multiloader Reviews

Awesome pack design, best I've seen in this crowded market.

By Korhan

Bought this pack after trying the Manfrotto Advanced Befree III 15L. That was too small for my growing Sigma fp system. This Multiloader 17L is a little bigger than I had hoped, but the space is ample and allows me to pack my gear without having to squeeze anything into too tight a space. The design is smart, with functionality to accommodate all my needs - camera, lenses, a 15-inch laptop, tripod, documents, accessories. It's a winner.

FITS A LOT!!!! EVEN A NIKON 200-500 ZOOM

I did have second thoughts about fitting the Nikon 200-500 zoom but it fit snugly on the bottom.The D500 with the Tamron 70-200 fit right above it along with the Nikon 17-55. On top of that that are several pockets throughout for your smaller items such as cards, batteries, etc. And don't forget, there are 3 ways to carry this versatile pack.
