First Look: New Line of Weather-Tough Bags from Manfrotto






Manfrotto has released a new collection of Pro and Advanced water-repellent bags for carrying the gear that professionals and advanced hobbyists need by their side. The bags include the Pro line of backpacks, holsters, roller bags, and shoulder bags and the Advanced line of holsters, shoulder and sling bags and Gear, Active, and Tri backpacks.

Pro bags feature an Exo-Tough design for diverting impacts away from the middle of the bag by using multi-layered construction around the bag. This construction includes a tough exterior fabric over an internal multi-layered shock-absorbing foam, covered with a brushed fabric. Additionally, the Pro Collection features a Camera Protection System that uses both a front shield and red, rigid interior dividers to assist in withstanding impacts while maintaining the bag's interior shape. The front shield is triple-stacked with a structural reinforcement board, 3D shock-absorbing foam, and brushed, cushioned fabric. Additionally, the Pro rollers, backpacks, and shoulder bags use sturdy TPU feet that also serve as shock absorbers while supporting the bag.

The Advanced bags also feature the internal protection advantage of sturdy interior dividers. They are designed for photo enthusiasts, and offer a streamlined, modern style that still employs tough Manfrotto construction. Each Manfrotto bag is available in a variety of sizes.

Pro Backpacks 20, 30, and 50

The Pro Backpack line is as versatile as it is sturdy. You can carry your photo gear when you're hiking and traveling with the Pro Backpack, which is available in 20, 30, and 50 models.

Pro Backpack 20Pro Backpack 30Pro Backpack 50

The Pro Backpack 20 accommodates a 13-inch laptop and a tablet in separate dedicated compartments, while also making room (via padded interior dividers) for a DSLR with an attached 70-200 f/2.8 lens, three additional lenses, a flash, and extra DSLR body. The Pro Backpack 30 accommodates the same equipment, but also provides room to attach a battery grip to your DSLR with the 70-200 f/2.8 lens coupled. The Pro Backpack 50 holds a 15-inch laptop and a tablet inside dedicated compartments, a DSLR with a battery grip, an attached 70-200 f/2.8 lens, five additional lenses, a flash, and an extra DSLR body inside the main compartment. Additionally, each size of the Pro Backpack provides a tripod attachment at both its front and side.

The Pro Backpack also features an innovative zippered front flap, held together by two quick-release buckles. When the buckles are closed, you can quickly access your DSLR from the top, and when the buckles are opened, you can unzip the front flap all the way down to reveal the entire main compartment. The front flap features the Pro Collection's signature hard-shell exterior, protecting your gear from impacts. For storing easily accessible memory cards or filters there is a zippered side pocket and a zippered side pouch on the outside of the backpack. The side pocket doubles as a tripod cup and features a removable quick-release belt at the top for securing tripod legs. The zippered pouch, located on the opposite side, features a zippered pocket at the front for holding your smartphone or keys.

There is also a second tripod attachment at the front. A hidden tripod cup lies at the base, and four loops at the front allow you to use included quick-release belts to secure tripod legs. The included rain cover fits conveniently over an entire tripod secured on the backpack—even in the front.

Four feet on the bottom of the backpack allow you to set it upright. The feet provide structure and balance so you can open the front flap completely and lay it down for use as a field mat. This creates complete access to the main compartment and to the pockets located inside the flap. The pockets on the flap's interior include two mesh zippered pockets and a soft zippered pouch for storing your tablet.

Inside the main compartment are rigid red dividers with adjustable flaps that lie parallel along the length of the bag. Five additional small dividers allow for further organization. All of the dividers feature touch-fastener panels for customizing your backpack.

Customizing options include shoulder straps with adjustable quick-release belts at the top, a row of attachment loops on the front of each shoulder strap for attaching optional lens pouches or small accessories, and two D-rings that allow you to attach an optional carabiner or a small pouch.

For comfort, there are thickly padded, adjustable shoulder straps and padded, breathable mesh that conforms to your back. Additionally, a sternum strap and nylon waist belt are provided for extra support on the Pro Backpack 20 and 30. A webbed nylon rear trolley sleeve and a top grip handle provide alternate methods for transporting each backpack.

Pro Holster Plus

With the hard-shell exterior guarding against impacts and abrasions, and the surprising spaciousness of the bag, the Holster Plus is a great way to keep your gear protected while traveling or shooting on the street. The Holster Plus 20 holds a DSLR with an attached 24-70 f/2.8 lens and a flash, and the Holster Plus 30 accommodates the same gear, but also features room for a battery grip. The Holster Plus 40 holds a DSLR with an attached 70-200 f/2.8 lens along with an extra lens, and the Holster Plus 50 holds a DSLR with a battery grip, an attached 70-200 f/2.8 lens, and two extra lenses.

Holster Plus 20Holster Plus 30Holster Plus 40Holster Plus 50

For easy access while wearing the bag, there is a dual-zippered front flap that opens away from you, at the top. This allows you to access the interior of your case while blocking onlookers from peering inside. For storing accessories like filters and memory cards, there are two spacious exterior zippered pockets; one at each side.

Featuring ergonomically designed zipper pulls and an exterior built from water-repellent materials, this Holster also includes a removable rain cover for extra protection from inclement weather. The gray rain cover includes two access ports for sliding in the detachable shoulder strap—this way, you can wear the holster in the rain—without worrying about how to carry it. For further comfort when carrying the bag, the shoulder strap has a large detachable comfort pad, breathable mesh materials and rigid, padded construction. You can also carry the bag using the padded grip handle that's built into the top.

Pro Roller Bags

The water-repellent Pro Roller Bag includes many of the features of the Pro collection—an intelligent impact-protection system made up of multi-layered construction, a front shield, and four shock-absorbing feet—to better divert impact away from the center of the bag. For further impact protection, the bag features red, rigid padded interior dividers that are built to withstand impact inside the bag and maintain its interior shape. Externally, the bag looks like luggage, but its interior provides a padded, gear-friendly environment with numerous pockets and equipment-storage compartments.

One side of the Roller features a zippered pouch with a vertical zippered pocket on top. These pockets hold small, easily accessible items like filters, headphones, and your smartphone. Underneath the front flap, there are two zippered mesh pockets for holding chargers and cables, as well as the laptop divider and tablet pocket.

If you travel with a tripod, the Pro Roller bag is a worthy choice. Not only does it feature a front exterior tripod attachment, but it includes a rain cover that fits over the tripod. Attaching your tripod is easy with the two included quick-release belts. They strap around the hidden tripod attachment loops at the front, and secure your tripod into the hidden tripod cup at the base of the Roller.

Pro Roller 50Pro Roller 70

For traveling or transporting a significant amount of gear, the Pro Roller Bag is available in two sizes, the Pro Roller 50 and the Pro Roller 70. The Pro Roller 50 accommodates a 15-inch laptop and an iPad or a similar sized tablet, two DSLRS with attached zoom lenses, three additional lenses, and two flashes. Though the Roller 70 is only slightly bigger in size, it holds a significantly larger amount of gear: a 17-inch laptop, an iPad or a similar sized tablet, three DSLRs with attached zoom lenses, five additional lenses, and two flashes. To comfortably transport your Pro Roller, you can use the retractable trolley handle at the top, or utilize one of the three padded grip handles featured on the top, side, and base of the bag.

Pro Shoulder Bags

Manfrotto's collection of black Pro Shoulder Bags can hold a surprising amount of equipment, and still be carried comfortably on your shoulder. These shoulder bags are convenient for traveling in airports, with their airline-friendly features such as a rear trolley strap, a quick-access top zipper, and multiple exterior pockets.

Pro Shoulder 10
Pro Shoulder 20Pro Shoulder Bag 30Pro Shoulder Bag 40Pro Shoulder Bag 50

There are five varieties of this bag. The smallest bag, the Pro Shoulder 10, holds a DSLR and up to three lenses between rigid interior dividers and a tablet behind a dedicated padded divider in the main compartment. The Pro Shoulder 20 will accommodate a DSLR with an attached 70-200 f/2.8 lens, three extra lenses, and a flash. The Pro Shoulder Bag 30 holds an 11-inch laptop inside the main compartment, along with a DSLR with a grip, an attached 70-200 f/2.8, three lenses, and a flash; it also accommodates a tablet behind a dedicated divider in the front pouch. The larger Pro Shoulder Bag 40 holds a 13-inch laptop, a DSLR with a grip, an attached 70-200 f/2.8 lens, four additional lenses, and a flash inside its main compartment; it also holds a tablet in the front pouch. The largest bag, the Pro Shoulder Bag 50, holds a 15-inch laptop, two DSLRS with two battery grips, an attached 70-200 f/2.8 lens, eight additional lenses, a flash, and a tablet in dedicated compartments.

Innovative, quick-access features make this bag stand out as an accommodating travel bag. For starters, a padded expandable zippered pouch on one side of the bag fits a DSLR body or a larger accessory. This allows every Pro Shoulder bag to hold an extra DSLR body in addition to the equipment that fits inside the main compartment. A hidden touch-fastened flap comes out to secure the pocket if the zipper is compromised by excess equipment. A top zipper creates access right to the main compartment, which lets you retrieve your gear easily without forcing you to remove the whole bag from an overhead bin or other storage area. A wide double-zipper opens a top flap away from you so you can access your shoulder bag while you are still wearing it, without showing anyone else what you have inside.

In addition to the padded tablet pockets in the larger models of the Pro Shoulder Bags, all these bags feature an organization panel in the front pouch. This panel is made up of three pen slots and two slip pockets that will hold your smartphone or MP3 player. There is also a simple zippered pocket on the other side that is great for storing accessible items like memory cards or filters. Additionally, there is a large zippered pocket at the back of the bag, suitable for caryying books or magazines.

To wear the shoulder bag, Manfrotto has provided two removable straps—one is a wide shoulder strap that features a detachable, touch-fastened, cushioned comfort pad, and the other a convenient top carry handle that is large enough to be worn over one shoulder. The rear trolley strap also allows for easily transporting your shoulder bag perched on rolling luggage.

Designed for comfortable and efficient travel, the Pro Shoulder Bags are constructed in accordance with the Pro Collection by featuring water-repellent materials, impact-absorbing TPU feet, rigid shock-absorbing dividers, front hard-shell construction, and a detachable, gray fitted rain cover.

Advanced Tri Backpacks

Manfrotto's Tri Backpack can be transported three different ways. You can wear it as a right- or left-handed sling, a regular shoulder harness, or an inverted X-harness backpack. Each of the three ways allows you to slide the backpack around so it's in front of you, for immediate access to your gear. These carrying options are achieved by way of the quick-release buckles attached to each shoulder strap; opening the quick-release buckles allows you to rearrange the straps into your preferred configuration. For using it as a sling, there is a hidden pocket behind the padded mesh at the back that allows you to hide the unused shoulder strap.

Tri Backpack STri Backpack MTri Backpack L

The Tri Backpack S holds a DSLR with an attached lens, two additional lenses, and a flash. The Tri Backpack M holds an 11-inch laptop and a DSLR with a grip and attached lens, four additional lenses, and a flash. The Tri Backpack L holds a 15-inch laptop, a DSLR with a grip, an attached zoom lens, six additional lenses, and a flash.

The backpack's main camera compartment, located at its base, features a reversible quick-access panel. While you are still wearing the backpack, you can slide it forward to access your DSLR from the left or the right side, depending on where you choose to keep the zipper. Inside this camera area are rigid interior dividers, which provide the structure to hold up the bag, in addition to providing organizational compartments. As an added feature, one of the dividers has a small slip pocket with a red organization tab, which can be used for storing a memory card. The red tab can be tucked in, to signify an empty or filled-to-capacity memory card.

For more storage, there is a spacious top compartment and a variety of interior and exterior pockets. The top compartment has an zippered interior mesh pocket for holding small accessories like filters or cables. The base of the top compartment can be unzipped to create more interior room in the backpack.

A small zippered pocket on each exterior side of the backpack allows for storing small items, and a nylon-webbed loop on each shoulder strap holds an optional carabiner with keys or a small pouch. To secure a tripod, there are two quick-release belts included with the backpack. One belt hooks through the two loops at the base and secures the tripod legs, and the other secures the top of the tripod to the loop at the front of the backpack.

The reversible shoulder straps feature breathable mesh lining and are padded for comfort. Additionally, a padded grip handle at the top, and a rear trolley strap at the back provide alternative methods for carrying the backpack. For extra protection in rainy weather, a detachable rain cover is included with the backpack.

Advanced Active Backpack

Part of Manfrotto's Advanced Collection, the water-repellent Active Backpack I and Active Backpack II feature storage for both your photo gear and your traveling essentials. A retractable camera compartment with a removable camera insert holds a DSLR, three lenses, and a flash inside either backpack.

Besides a removable insert, the backpack features multiple accessory pockets, a modular convertible interior, and a side tripod attachment.

The numerous storage options include a pouch at the front that opens to reveal a large mesh zippered pocket for storing accessories like chargers or cables. A small zippered pocket is conveniently situated on top of the front pouch for quick access to small filters or headphones. A large zippered top compartment features a padded interior divider with a touch-fastened tab that holds a 15-inch laptop in each backpack. Additionally, two slip pockets with red organization tabs are built-into the divider to hold memory cards or an MP3 player. For extra room, the floor of the top compartment unzips to create one spacious compartment inside the backpack.

On the outside of the backpack are two side slip pockets. To hold a tripod, one of the pockets acts as a tripod cup and features a top loop for attaching an included quick-release belt. The belt serves to secure the top of your tripod firmly against the pack. At the back, a breathable mesh padded panel provides comfort for carrying the backpack.

For additional transport options, there is a padded mesh shoulder harness with a sternum strap, a top padded grip handle, and a rear trolley strap. For aqueous weather during your expeditions, a protective rain cover is available with these Active Backpacks.

For exploring a safari or zoo, you can leave the quick-release buckle and the dual-zippered handle unfastened. This way, the panel safely secures with the touch-fastened flap, but can be quickly accessed should the decisive moment arise.

The Active Sling I accommodates a DSLR with an attached lens, two additional lenses, and a flash, between rigid interior dividers. In addition to organizing your gear, these rigid dividers provide interior structure for holding up the middle of the sling during impact. For additional storage, there is a front zippered pocket, convenient for holding chargers or cables, a small zippered pocket on the strap for holding a smartphone, and a small pocket on an interior divider that holds a filter or a memory card. The small interior pocket has a touch-fastened tab for security.

The sling features comfort options like a padded, breathable mesh underside, a wide, cushioned shoulder strap, and a nylon-webbed waist strap to help distribute weight evenly. Additionally, the sling can be carried using a padded grip handle on the side. A removable rain cover is included for extra protection from unpredictable weather.

Either way, Manfrotto has your gear covered.
