Vanguard’s Expandable ALTA RISE Bags Hold Everything including the Kitchen Sink

ALTA RISE
In the past 30 years, Vanguard has gone from a niche manufacturer to one of the world’s most recognized brands for high-quality photo and video accessories, including tripods, heads, and bags. Recently Vanguard announced their latest series of messengers, sling, and backpacks – the ALTA RISE series of bags.

ALTA RISE

The ALTA RISE +6 expansion system allows photographers to expand the depth of their bags by simply pulling a zipper when you need more space. The +6 system allows for an additional 6cm of space; Vanguard likens it to having two different sized bags in one. One of the core benefits is not only the ability to carry more but also make the bags’ overall footprint smaller when it’s time to store them away.

All ALTA RISE bags are designed to hold up to 4-5 lenses along with your camera body, as well as your laptop or tablet, keep your gear protected with all-around padding, and include a rain cover that covers the entire bag. The backpacks and sling are designed hold pro DSLR bodies along with 4-5 lenses (up to a 24-70mm f/2.8), a flash, and accessories – plenty of storage whether you pack light or need to bring the studio with you. Check out the full specs and product images from Vanguard below.
