Manfrotto Pro Light Bumblebee-220 PL
Now here’s a rare sight: a black and red (and rather stylish) bumblebee
Arriving just too late to make it into ths month’s Big Test, this heavyweight backpack has a has the same name as a similar Kata bag... in fact, Kata and Manfrotto merged this year.
Manfrotto has enhanced the central dividers with thicker foam. Either side of these is a removable pod. There’s enough space for your Nikon and lens, plus a second body and up to eight extra lenses. A 17-inch laptop will slot in too, while front and side pockets take care of accessories. The shoulder straps are supple but aren’t the most comfortable. However, the hip belt will take most of the weight – and the bag itself weighs nearly three kilograms.
