    Best photo backpacks: Manfrotto Veloce VII

    Best photo backpacks: Manfrotto Veloce VII

    Price: £70, $110
    Buy it:
    This is a full photo backpack with space for seven items. As you’d expect from a Manfrotto bag, tripods are particularly well catered for, with both an external attachment fastener and a full-length internal section for smaller tripods.

    We feel the latter is more useful for carrying oversized lenses.

    To help keep the carrying surface clean, the main opening into the bag is at the rear, so you lay the bag down on its front for access.

    There’s also a top opening so you can grab your camera and attached lens without opening the whole bag.

    The laptop section is particularly large but there’s no separate opening for this.

    Unusually, the backpack has no waist strap and there’s no slip-over rain cover either.

    Our Verdict
    Pros… Spacious throughout and accommodates a 17-inch laptop
    Cons… No rain cover. The lack of a waist strap reduces stability
    WE say… It’s well made but not fantastically good value

    Score: 4/5
