Van­guard’s new Alta Rise bags have a se­cret weapon – you can un­zip an ex­tra 6cm of depth for car­ry­ing larger loads, then zip it back up to make the bag smaller again for ev­ery­day use. We took a look at the Alta Rise 28 Mes­sen­ger bag, with enough space for a DX or Nikon 1 body with lens at­tached, two fur­ther lenses, flash, ac­ces­sories and a 10-inch tablet in a padded com­part­ment at the back. For a 13-inch lap­top and more kit you’ll need the Alta Rise 33, while the Alta Rise 38 is spa­cious enough for a 15-inch lap­top. The range also in­cludes an Alta Rise 43 Sling Bag, as well as two back­packs: the Alta Rise 45 and 48.

First im­pres­sions_ The ver­sa­tile ex­pand­able de­sign of these bags gives them an edge over much of the com­pe­ti­tion, and keen pric­ing will doubt­less add to their ap­peal.
