From Manfrotto: IT’S IN THE BAG
. Italian photographic accessories designer Manfrotto launches LINO bags and apparel Evoking the name and spirit of the brand’s Italian founder Lino Manfrotto, Manfrotto is once more responding to the specialised needs of photographers with the introduction of a unique range of stylish apparel and accessories, designed with professionals in mind.
The LINO collection comprises a range of jackets and bags for men and women that combine the functional requirements of a professional photographer with a stylish, Italian design aesthetic. The result is garments and accessories that aren’t just fashionable but also practical. Lightweight, breathable fabrics, clean cut lines and a meticulous level of attention to detail means the collection delivers customised solutions to support any professional photographer both at work and at play.
The LINO Pro Field Jacket and Pro Photo Vest both feature stylish pockets with removable modular inserts to hold lenses, shoulder strap detail to balance the weight of the camera and an ergonomic weight distribution system connecting the pockets to the shoulders.
The LINO Pro Soft Shell Jacket and the LINO Pro Wind Jacket are both designed to provide protection from the elements whether it’s the great outdoors or the urban jungle. Wind proofing and sealed seams provide protection from the wind and rain while thumb slits and a compact fold away design adds warmth and versatility in the face of changing weather.
The LINO Bags are also designed with the pro photographer in mind. First class materials and super stylish design are the hallmarks of this range. Remaining true to the purpose of their founder, each bag features a dedicated solution for carrying a tripod, perfectly incorporated into the design. The bags also include dedicated compartments for extra camera gear, including a laptop and a range of lenses. Choose from a carry-on sized, rolling bag which is perfect for travel, the shoulder bag which [does what it does] or the backpack which is ideal for city based shoots. Additional lens and camera pouches protect equipment from damage and dirt.
“LINO came to life with a breakthrough concept, combining two product families - bags and apparel – into a comprehensive system that would offer photographers a brand new luxury photo accessory category and work in unison with key Manfrotto tripods and heads,” says designer Fabio Prada LINO bags and apparel are designed to be objects of desire that will work hard, day in, day out, supporting the photographer’s imagination, in keeping with the spirit of Lino Manfrotto the company’s founder and the inspiration behind the range.
