Gitzo Launches the Century Camera Bag Collection

Gitzo is debuting its Century Camera Bag Collection in honor of the company’s 100th anniversary.

Gitzo, a Manfrotto company, said the new selection of photography bags are designed for the Gitzo Traveler line. They are for photographers and videographers who own premium cameras and require similar standards of premium quality and detail in their photography bags.

All the bags are made in Italy and combine Italian cow leather and wear-resistant nylon, guaranteeing high resistance to scratches and abrasions. The bags are water-repellent and were crafted to resemble the look of carbon fiber, reminiscent of the Gitzo Traveler tripod legs. The range includes the Gitzo Century Traveler Backpack, the Century Traveler Messenger and the Century Compact Messenger.

The Gitzo Century Traveler Backpack has an internal insert that accommodates a medium-size DSLR with 70-200mm f/2.8 lens attached plus two additional lenses, or it can hold a DJI Mavic Pro with its remote control and accessories.

The dual side access enables owners to reach for their equipment from the right or left side. The front opening is for carrying a 0 and 1 Series Gitzo Traveler or similar sized tripod.

The second model is the Century Traveler Messenger, which has a G-lock flap closing system powered by Fidlock. With this smart magnetic lock, the bag can be easily opened and closed.

For photographers who prefer a smaller bag, the Century Compact Messenger can hold a premium mirrorless camera with a standard zoom lens attached plus two additional lenses or a DJI Mavic Pro and its smaller accessories.

The bags are priced from $169.99 to $299.99.
