Manfrotto Speedy-30 Overview
The gray Manhattan Speedy-30 Messenger from Manfrotto is a compact messenger-style camera bag that designed to accommodate the needs of the on-the-go photographer. Inside the main compartment is a removable equipment insert with two padded, adjustable dividers that can hold a medium-sized DSLR or a mirrorless camera along with three lenses, including a 70-200mm f/4 lens. The dividers can be configured according to the specific equipment being carried within the insert, and the included flexible panels cradle curved surfaces such as the grip of a camera with an attached lens. During use, the flexible divider panels enhance protection between those curved surfaces and adjacent items while minimizing the area between them for more efficient use of space within the insert.
A wide-mouth zippered opening at the top of the Manhattan Speedy-30 Messenger makes it easy to store and remove items, including a 14" laptop and 9.7" tablet computer. The bag's dedicated laptop pocket is positioned to rest against the wearer while in use, while a compatible tablet can fit in between the laptop pocket and removable insert. Aside from being able to comfortably hold photo gear, plus a laptop or tablet, a zippered organizer pocket along the inside of the top opening provides storage for pens, business cards, keys, and small electronics. To accommodate a water bottle or other items that need to be accessed quickly and conveniently, outer side pockets are also included. A pocket with a zippered opening along the exterior panel which faces the wearer is a convenient space for books, notepads, documents or snacks, while an additional pocket along the bottom of the Manhattan Speedy-30 Messenger can be opened to reveal tuck-away straps and a cradle to hold a tripod or monopod against the front of the bag.
In addition to being worn across the body, the Manhattan Speedy-30 Messenger can be carried using its built-in top handle For an enhanced fit, an integrated waist belt is included. When used, the waist belt helps to prevent the bag from unintentionally shifting around the wearer such as when traveling on a bicycle. Featuring a durable, nylon and polyester construction, the Manhattan Speedy-30 Messenger is built to be weather resistant. It includes a waterproof cover for use under heavy rain which can also be deployed over an attached tripod or monopod.
