Advanced² Camera Messenger is the best designer camera bag
Editor's Choice Award

Congratulations to Manfrotto. Its Advanced² Camera Messenger carrier for DSLR and mirrorless cameras is our pick for the best designer camera bag on the market currently.

Announced last year, back in September Manfrotto revealed a new line of Advanced² camera bags, the Advanced² Camera Messenger being one of them. The bag itself is 14-inches and holds camera gear like the Canon 5D Mark IV. There’s also a small hidden tripod holder. The bag is also built to withstand rain. And you can get the bag for $110. Those just are some of the reasons it is our pick for the best designer camera bag.

Inside of the bag, there are interchangeable dividers, so you can make the bag a custom fit for your gear. It also has a strap connector that can connect to any standard trolley or luggage handle, making it easy to wheel the bag while transporting it.

Rain protection

The Advanced² Camera Messenger is built out of fabric that is treated to be water-resistant. The fabric is water repellent and there’s a rain cover that is also supplied. The rain cover can be used if the weather conditions get heavier.
