If you ve ever found yourself crammed into a packed tube carriage, right up against another rider s backpack, you ve probably realised just how easy it could be to sneak open a pocket and swipe something.

So to help protect expensive photography gear, Manfrotto s new backpack makes lenses and cameras only accessible while the pack is removed.

The zip-up panel that opens to give access to the Rear Access pack s padded camera section is located on the back, which means that while the backpack is being worn, the camera gear inside can t be removed.

It s a simple solution that doesn t require locks, keys, or combinations to remember, and it s not like you re reaching for expensive lenses without removing a traditional backpack first, so this design is no less convenient.

Other more easily accessible pockets are available for water bottles, phones and smaller items you don t want filling your pockets, laptops up to 13-inches in size, a tripod in its own weather-protected pouch on the side, and the pack has a built-in rain shield that keeps everything dry but you during a downpour.

And at £120, it s not hard to justify the Advanced camera and laptop backpack Rear Access as a form of insurance for your considerably more expensive photography gear.
