The Black Stile Collection Unica VII Messenger Bag from Manfrotto is the kind of quality bag you'll want with you whether on a day trip to the country or international airline journey. On the surface, this bag may appear to be just a garden variety shoulder tote but once examined, you find that it has many features that make it a stand-out among such bags. Let's take a closer look at what the Unica VII offers.
The main compartment is 15.7" (39.9cm) tall and holds a DSLR with a mounted lens in shooting position. In addition, you can also bring along an extra lens, flash, various accessories plus a 17" (43.2cm) Macbook or a 15.4" (39.1cm) laptop - all this in a bag that weighs a mere 2.2 lb (1.0kg). The organizer pocket stores your iPhone, MP3 player, map, pens, computer support cables, batteries, memory cards and sunglasses. That's quite a bundle of gear for a bag. And it's all organized by a system of padded, movable dividers that can be arranged to suit your needs. But it doesn't stop there. Sooner or later, every photographer uses a tripod and this bag will allow to you to store a Manfrotto pocket tripod inside its own space. Now you can get those night or long exposure shots. As mentioned, you can take the Unica VII Messenger Bag on a plane as it meets current carry-on standards. What a relief - your gear never leaves your sight.
There are times when you need instant access to your equipment. You can reach the contents by two methods. First, the main compartment has a rear zipper that is used to quickly get your laptop out for airport security checkpoints. Or, if you prefer, use the quick-release compression clasp to open and close the protective flap that guards the interior of the bag. Made from a water-repellent nylon, the bag is carried by a comfortable, adjustable shoulder strap that has a padded cushion. The Unica VII Messenger Bag offers you a host of features at a reasonable price that should make it an appealing choice when you're in the market for a lightweight, functional and stylish shoulder bag that is manufactured by Manfrotto, a company with a solid track record of producing high-quality photo gear.
