Manfrotto Noreg 30

Manfrotto’s Noreg not only exemplifies cool with its smart digital camo pattern, it’s also a brilliantly designed backpack aimed at CSC users. The Noreg takes a modular approach, allowing you to remove the internal compartment and use it as a carry case, or even use the bag as a traditional backpack. Then there’s the laptop sleeve at the rear, which fits a 15in laptop, and can be removed entirely to accommodate extra protection for your computer – hugely innovative.

The bag itself will fit a CSC with a medium lens attached, as well as a secondary lens, which isn’t quite as roomy as others in test, but keeps the weight down for those who like to pack light. You can also store a 10in tablet, alongside the laptop, which is ideal for anybody who likes to edit on the go. The front carries a mount for a tripod, and the top compartment is perfect for personal items. The exterior has been treated to make it water-repellent.
