Upper Saddle River, NJ—Manfrotto, a manufacturer of premium photo, video and lighting support products and accessories, launched three tripod bags: two versions that are 30 inches long, both padded and unpadded, and a smaller, 24-inch unpadded bag.
With the addition of these three models, Manfrotto’s tripod bag range matches several of its photo tripods, including the 190Go! and 290 collections.
The bags’ asymmetric tapered shape is designed to allow photographers to store a tripod with the head attached. Tripod legs fit in the narrower end with extra space for the larger volume of the head at the wider end. For easy access, the bags incorporate a zipper that extends down the full length of the bag, even where the head is stored. Each bag also includes a shoulder carry strap.
The 30-inch bag is available with a full-padded option. Padding on the entire length of the bag offers tripod protection, and thermoform padding on the top also protects the tripod with the head mounted.
The three new bags are made with ballistic nylon to prevent them from tearing and to eliminate abrasion. In addition, an external coating makes them water repellent.
Manfrotto’s new tripod bags are available for the following suggested retail prices: MB MBAG60N, $29.99; MB MBAG75N, $39.99; and MB MBAG75PN, $49.99.
