National Geographic and Manfrotto are pleased to announce the launch of the new Mediterranean  Collection at

The Mediterranean Collection is a sporty new line of photography backpacks, totes and holsters – all designed to meet the needs of today’s photographers and day travellers. The exciting collaboration between these two organisations is rooted in their common passion for photography. Through its award-winning photography of people, cultures, animals and the natural world, National Geographic inspires people to care about the planet.

The Manfrotto brand aims to accompany enthusiastic and accomplished photographers beyond the camera, to help them capture the full potential of the image they see, and to express and share their imagination more fully.

Inspired by the sea and travel, the Mediterranean Collection features a deep-blue canvas parallel to the colour of the Mediterranean Sea. Adding further to the nautical theme, the blue and white stripes and ochre leather trim add a touch of freshness and personality, enriching the style of each bag.

Characterised by three distinctive features, the quality of the collection is apparent in three areas:

Superior protection for the equipment

For the first time, the Mediterranean Collection features the Manfrotto Protection System technology. Each item in the collection is engineered with internal dividers that provide maximum protection for photographic equipment and other electronic devices. Lenses and accessories can be safely contained in unique protective zones that can be removed to accommodate larger equipment, or remain compact and handy for smaller camera bodies and technology.

High- quality materials Each bag in the collection has been developed with the toughest of materials. The exterior of each bag consists of soft-cotton canvas with genuine leather details to provide a natural and original feel.

Ergonomic design

Each bag is ergonomically designed for photographers to travel in comfort, while maintaining easy access to their gear so that they capture all the important moments of their experience.
