Manfrotto has launched its new Noreg camera bag series with the Backpack-30 and Messenger-30 models. Both bags are designed for premium mirrorless camera systems, each featuring internal camera units that can be removed and used independently of the larger bags. Additionally, both the backpack and messenger have connectors for carrying travel size tripods.
The Noreg series bags feature the same aesthetic and many mutual features, including enough room to accommodate up to a 15″ laptop and 9.7″ tablet, rain covers, interchangeable internal dividers, Flexi dividers, strap connectors for attaching the bags to luggage handles, and sizes that enable them to be used as carry-on bags with many airlines.
Both the messenger bag and backpack have a detachable rear compartment that can be used as a standalone laptop sleeve. The removable internal camera unit, meanwhile, doubles as a standalone shoulder bag with enough space for a premium mirrorless camera with an attached standard zoom lens and up to two extra lenses. The bag can also hold a DJI Mavic Pro combo kit, according to Manfrotto.
Likewise, both bags sport the Manfrotto Protection System for helping shield gear from shocks. The backpack also adds a quick access zippered opening on the top alongside a zippered top flap. Additional accessory items, such as keys and a wallet, can be stored in the backpack’s front multi-zippered pockets. The messenger bag features a bungee cord and pocket on the side for holding items, such as a monopod.
The Backpack-30 measures 29 x 18 x 47cm / 11.4 x 7 x 18.5in and the Messenger-30 measures 40 x 17 x 27cm / 15.7 x 6.7 x 10.6in.
Manfrotto is currently taking pre-orders for both the Noreg Backpack-30 and Messenger-30 bags on its website for $269.95 CAD / £159.95 and $229.95 CAD / £129.95, respectively. The Noreg bag series is not currently listed on Manfrotto’s US website.
