Lowepro has released additions to its professional-grade bags with new Pro Messenger AW shoulder bags and Pro Roller Lite soft transport cases.
The three sizes in the Pro Messenger AW range are ‘designed for style and discretion during urban and social assignments’.
Pro Messenger AWs are built to carry professional kits. They feature an innovative flap (‘FlexFlap’) that folds in half for easy access when working, and fully extends for maximum security when moving from one location to the next.
Inside, dividers are padded and adjustable to fit a variety of pro-sized kits and can be vertically or horizontally placed for greater customisation. A dual-purpose back-pocket stores large items and unzips to reveal a trolley sleeve. The soft but durable exterior looks like classic canvas, but it’s actually a modern performance fabric that offers far more protection from moisture and abrasion.
A built-in All Weather AW Cover protects gear from the elements and tucks into the bottom compartment when not in use.
RRPs range from $189 to $219 and the Pro Messenger AW bags are available now.
Wheeling in the gear
