Photographers reaching for a lightweight pack for carrying a minimal amount of camera gear or personal items for a quick day trip will appreciate the black Essential DSLR Camera Backpack from Manfrotto. The Essential has a small, padded, removable, interior camera compartment with 2 touch-fastening dividers for storing a small DSLR with an attached standard lens, a second small lens and accessory or two. It can also be used to store additional gear or personal items. And with the camera compartment removed or re-purposed, the bag can be easily converted for other adventures. With a rear, padded, zippered compartment you can also bring along an up to 13" laptop, too.

A new travel companion

Durable, reliable and practical. This Essential Camera and Laptop Backpack for DSLRs and CSCs give you a lightweight, fuss-free way of transporting your most important items of kit. It has an external padded compartment for your laptop, so you can be sure all your expensive gear is safe and sound. Plus, this camera backpack is made from shock absorbent, high-performance materials. Not only can you fit your DSLR and lenses in this super-smart bag, but you can also carry your laptop and have everything you need for your own urban adventure in one place. It can also hold your DJI Mavic Pro. Special, water repellent, the ripstop fabric protects your gear even in bad weather conditions and is robust enough to stay in shape with heavy use. Even better, half the bag is dedicated to personal items, and the other half protects your photography equipment. Extra handy features include a side pocket with straps for a small tripod. This day-to-day camera backpack includes an easily removed camera case, so you can remove it and use it as a backpack if you prefer. Numerous internal pockets help you organise and store your loose objects like keys and cards, and because everything’s padded in the right places, you can feel sure your kit is secure.
