I was looking for a replacement for my old Lowepro messenger bag for quite a while, but couldn't find one I like.
Yesterday I was at Shriro, to loan their Profoto Bac Pack for the "Ganbatte Japan - Wishes For Japan" project (see here: http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/threa...from-Singapore for this coming Sunday 10 Apr). I chance upon this bag when they were unboxing their new products for their showroom (Shriro Singapore - has been appointed the authorized dealer for Manfrotto apperals and bags - new products by Manfrotto.
The bag in question is the Unica VII Messanger Bag - (the specs can be found here - http://www.manfrotto.com/product/861...enger_Bag_Cord ). I finally found what I wanted. As it was the only piece in Singapore for the moment, I had to persuade and threaten etc until they relented to sell me this bag. I became about $160 poorer.
The bag when fully loaded with stuff - notice the metal buckle? looks cool. And the subtle manfrotto logo lines on the top flap
small logo at the side and the zipper
The back with a zip compartment for notes.
