Vitec Imaging Solutions, world leader in the photography and videography, imaging equipment and accessories industry brings you Chicago, the new collection of premium photography backpacks: outstanding performance and premium design built to serve dynamic urban creatives as they live their best city life.


The Manfrotto Chicago collection consists of two photography backpacks and is the most desirable yet. The philosophy behind this assortment is to combine exclusive quality materials, ultra-stylish design, and exceptional technical features. Chicago is a multi-purpose, modular system devised to fulfil the needs of today’s most energetic promising city-based photographers.


If you’re an image-making mover and shaker or content creator and you love using the coolest, most powerful and versatile gear, including full frame mirrorless cameras, premium laptop, handheld gimbal or drone, the Chicago collection is for you: it’s a photography bag designed to stay with you throughout your day to day experiences of life in the city, on the most epic photo and video shoots, and on to exciting weekend getaways.

You’ll love the carefully selected materials and design details that make this pack built to last: Kevlar® yarn fabric on the bottom part of the bag for extreme protection and durability, coated fabric with matte finish, Duraflex® buckles and YKK zippers. Moreover, external fabric is treated to make it water repellent and a rain cover is also supplied in case of extreme weather conditions.


Both the Chicago camera backpack Medium and Small models feature a removable photo insert that enables a switch from 100% photography to 100% lifestyle in an instant. The internal camera unit slips out and works perfectly as a shoulder bag when only photography gear is needed. The packs feature symmetric dual-access organizer pockets, so you always know where to find your gear. And when you need a handy day pack that looks as cool as you are, simply remove the camera unit and convert to a city travel bag.

The Manfrotto Chicago camera backpack Medium and Small hold a full-frame mirrorless or DSLR camera with standard zoom lens attached. On top of this, the Medium holds 3-4 extra lenses, whereas the Small fits 2-3 additional lenses, depending on size.


Both models have a top compartment designed for personal gear. They also fit a DJI OSMO Mobile in a dedicated gimbal pocket on one of the double-sided flaps. Moreover, the Chicago Medium also features a media organizer pouch designed to keep your essentials media accessories to hand, including SD cards, cables and adapters.


A separate laptop compartment on the back of the packs’ main compartments store a 14’’ laptop in the Small, and 15’’ laptop in the Medium.

For your peace of mind, both models feature the Manfrotto Slim-Tech Protection System, which offers the benefit of more space for gear along with uncompromising protection from shock inside the bag, thanks to a slimmer, high-performance divider system. You can always have your trusty tripod with you thanks to the versatile tripod holder, designed to hold a tripod horizontally across the front or under the pack, or vertically on the front of the pack. Slip anything you need easy access to into the double-sided external stretch pockets on both sides.


The Manfrotto Chicago camera backpack small is available for £182.95,


The Manfrotto Chicago camera backpack medium is available for £213.45.
