The Vanguard Alta ACCESS 38X Messenger Bag is the definitive ‘get that scoop’ quick-action messenger bag, designed for on-the-go photojournalists and event photographers. With just one swift top-zip opening, you’ll be shooting in a split second — plus, no more fumbling for a lens to change, to reach the flash, or any other working function.
Well-padded internal compartments, dividers, and pouches offer easy, versatile setup. With this bag, you can effortlessly carry a large professional gear kit, such as a pro DSLR, an additional body, 5-6 lenses (up to 300mm f/4), a flash, and a multitude of accessories. Your other essentials are also protected in a 15” laptop pouch, dedicated accessory pockets, and internal and external pouches. For video professionals, our optimal tripod carrying system is integrated into the design, and this unique connector can also be used to attach personal items such as a jacket.
At Vanguard, we know that a great bag is one you want to carry even when you’re off the clock, so versatility is key. The detachable insert, dividers, and pouches can be removed and reloaded in one easy step, giving you a seamless transition from camera bag to an everyday messenger bag, and back.
All-encompassing protection features begin with our second-to-none quality, materials and bag construction. Protection is reinforced within by our padded dividers and pouches. Reinforced water-/scratch-resistant material on the bottom, along with our total-coverage rain cover, helps keep your items dry.
The ALTA ACCESS messenger-style carrying bag is enhanced by a well-padded anti-slip shoulder strap and an additional torso-stabilizing strap, providing optimal weight distribution when slung diagonally. When quick action is not required, you can enjoy other comfortable carrying configurations, such as the simple back-harness mode, or a connection to the handle of your wheel-along luggage.
