And, of course, the bags are built to protect your gear while on the move. Both Pro Light Cinematic backpacks feature Manfrotto’s signature shock-absorbing Camera Protection System divider for optimal protection of equipment. And as a fully loaded bag can be heavy, there are load lifters, sternum straps, shoulder straps and waist belts which are fully adjustable for a customised fit to keep the bag comfortable for a long time. The bags are built to take a lot of punishment and last for years as they are made of water-repellent ripstop nylon/polyester, hollowed ITWNexus buckles and Duraflex hardware. And frequent fliers will appreciate the easy-access laptop pocket for a device up to 17 inches, and external zip or stretch pockets for accessories or travel documents and a water bottle. Both Pro Light Cinematic backpacks have a dedicated monopod and tripod connection. They also come with a DuoFace sun/rain cover to protect from harsh weather and reflect sunlight to keep gear cool and dry.

There is direct access from the side of the bag, so it’s easy to get the Ronin out and start filming. The signature Manfrotto NeverLose strap secures your support of choice and an additional dedicated connection keeps your assembled Ronin Grip attached.

This makes the pack more compact and legal to carry on your flight.
