Vanguard has received three prestigious Red Dot Design Awards. The products that won the award include the Alta Pro 2+ 263CT carbon fibre tripod, the Alta Sky 51D backpack, and the VEO Discover 46 Sling/Backpack.
Vanguard firmly believe that the Alta Pro 2+ Tripods are the easiest and fastest range of tripods on the market to set up. The range features a redesigned Multi-Angle Central Column (MACC) which can be rotated in almost any direction and locked with ease. The range also includes revolutionary Rapid Action Locks (RAL) that combine the benefit of both twist and flip locks. Simply turn the Rapid Action Lock 35° until the movement stops to lock/unlock the tripod legs. The combination allows any photographer to move from macro photography to landscape photography in seconds. The Alta Pro 2+ 263CT includes these features in a stylish carbon fibre tripod which weighs just 1.6kg and can take a substantial 7kg load capacity. It will be available in June 2017.
The Alta Sky 51D is the most versatile camera backpack Vanguard has created to date. Designed with two sections this backpack offers a 70/30 split which allows a photographer to tailor the setup to their particular requirements. Whether it’s a PRO DSLR kit (including a full sized tripod), a drone or just weekend wear with a Compact System Camera kit, the Alta Sky 51D can be tailored to the individual. Large loads can be carried in comfort thanks to the advanced, ergonomic harness system. Available now from leading retailers.

The VEO Discover 46 is a lightweight backpack that easily converts to a sling bag. Not just that, but the VEO Discover 46 has side access for either and a choice of which sling to release which makes it is perfect for left or right handed photographers. It will be available from July 2017.
“After successfully launching the new Alta Pro 2+ range and Alta Sky range at The Photography Show 2017, winning these Red Dot awards is an amazing result and a great start of what will be a record year of innovation for Vanguard. Watch this space. We know there’s LOTS more great news to come.” said Ian Bywater, Managing Director at Vanguard UK.
