Each single detail of this bag has been extensive tested until the final ideal design has been achieved.

The large organizer at the front is absolutely unique and extremely convenient to store any sort of accessory and personal belongings. A padded inner pocket for tablet/12-inch laptop is also available. An other key point is that all pockets are sealed by anti-scratch spiral YKK zippers: this is extremely important for a camera bag. Thanks to the removable photo insert and plenty of extra room for everyday personal belongings, Luca is a luxury bag not only for photography, but also for everyday use, business and commuting. The perfect choice for both professional photographers and for professionals with the hobby of photography. At the rear a convenient trolley attachment makes it a perfect travelling bag.
