Manfrotto has expanded their Lino line of apparel, and are now making goods specifically for women customers.
Manfrotto has taken their popular Lino line of clothing, and redesigned a number of pieces for their women customers. Rather than doing what far too many companies do, and just color something pink and load it with flowers, Manfrotto have kept the designs simple in simple and practical black. Additionally, all the women's gear has mail-in-rebates available until the end of July, and are available in sizes XS to 3L
Above is the Pro Photo Best, which will retail for $229, but you can knock $80 off the price with that mail-in-rebate. Below is the Pro Field Jacket, $349 with a $100 mail-in-rebate available. Both have:
- Main pockets hold the removable modular pocket inserts, and the weight distribution system connects the pocket to the shoulders and transfers the weight ergonomically
- Designated epaulets secure the camera strap in place while the shoulder pad inserts cushion the load of the camera or bag Includes anti-tilt securing tabs for the camera strap
- Modular pocket inserts fit inside main pockets, which can accommodate two lenses (24-70)
But you'll also find an integrated microfiber cleaning cloth in the jacket's sleeve.
The Pro Soft Shell Jacket will set you back $169 (or $119 if you use the rebate), and has textured shoulders to stop your camera from slipping, side entry chest pockets, a compact camera pocket, and thumb holes in the sleeves to keep your hands warm.
Finally in the women-specific lineup comes the $159 ($109 with rebate) Pro Air Jacket — a wind and waterproof jacket that folds up on itself into a pouch. It is seam sealed to keep out water, has two pockets for your gear, and has a built-in hood and visor.
