The black Lino Pro V Messenger Bag from Manfrotto is a slightly smaller version of Manfrotto's Pro VII Messenger Bag. With this "stow-and-go" bag, you can be up and out the door, ready for that international or cross country flight. With a more than respectable gear capacity of a DSLR with mounted 70-200 lens, plus four other lenses, laptop, standard and pocket tripods, flash and general accessories, this is a bag to be reckoned with for anyone who needs a multi-functional, weather-resistant bag. But why is it multi-functional? Not only is it a well-designed shoulder bag but it can also leave you hands-free when set up as an over-your-shoulder sling-type bag. The included buckle and strap that change the bag from one style to the other provide extra carrying support during longer durations.
The bag is made from rugged, weather-resistant, high-quality nylon along with a lovely touch of stylish Italian leather. No need to be worried about being caught in various weather conditions since a fold-out rain protector is included to protect you from unexpected rain, wind or snow. Water-resistant zippers are coated so that no moisture will seep in. The outside of the bag is affixed with tripod connectors that eliminate the need for a separate, standard tripod bag. And if you use a pocket tripod, the inside of the bag contains two integrated pockets that are perfect for fitting both sizes of Manfrotto pocket series tripods.
Let's look inside and see what the bag offers. Not only is it spacious enough for your DSLR with a mounted 70-200 plus 4 other medium-sized lenses, flash and numerous accessories, but no photographer these days travels without his laptop. The Lino Pro V Messenger Bag is rated to hold a 15.4" (39.1cm) laptop as well as most Apple 17" (43.2cm) laptops -stored in its own, separate padded compartment. Needless to say, the bag will also accommodate computer support accessories like cables, batteries, cards and more. The central gear compartment is equipped with Manfrotto's touch fastened Flexi-Dividers that permit you to sculpt the bag into whatever configuration you prefer. That 70-200 I mentioned earlier is held firmly in place by Manfrotto's "L" Camera Bracket that supports the camera and lens in a face-down, secure and ready-to-shoot position. For pens, maps, business cards, iPhone and similar small-sized items, there is a handy separate slip-in style storage pocket compartment.
This is also an excellent shooting bag. The "wow" feature is that you can open the bag from the top without having to unzip the entire system exposing it to surrounding, curious eyes. Merely unhinge the touch fastened top panels and you'll be able to withdraw your mounted 70-200, get the shot, slip the camera back inside, close the flaps and keep going.
For ease of carrying, the Lino Pro V Messenger Bag comes with a comfortable shoulder strap containing an over-sized, padded cushion. Dual hand carry straps are also provided for when you need to quickly grab the bag from your car trunk. Best of all, a special buckle and strap are included that change the Pro V into a sling-style bag. If you're using the bag in a shooting mode, this feature permits you to remains hands-free - so when you pull your camera out from the top of the bag, you won't have to be concerned about the bag getting in your way while working.
Water Repellent Exterior A special coating is applied to the high-quality nylon fabric and Italian leather that keep the bag moisture-resistant Double Pocket for Pocket Tripods Two unique integrated pockets are perfect for fitting both sizes of Manfrotto pocket series tripods External Tripod Connections The Pro V comes with connections for attaching your tripod to the front of the pack Flexi Dividers Both modular and easy to use, these touch fastened dividers allow you to configure the inside of your bag to create exact size compartments for your gear Laptop Compatible Protect your 17" (43.2cm) laptop during transport in its own separate, padded compartment L Camera Bracket This cradle cushions your main camera with lens attached and keeps it from shifting during transport Rain Protector The included fold out protector, when deployed, creates a moisture-proof barrier Water Protective Zippers Coated zippers protect water from seeping inside Lino Pro V Messenger Bag Tripod Compatibility
