Maxwell International has released two new Lowepro backpacks – the Flipside 500 AW, designed for sports, adventure and outdoor photographers and the Photo Traveler 150, a scaled-down compact ‘daypack’.
The Flipside 500 AW (RRP $249 – pictured right) can accommodate a professional DSLR camera with grip and 500mm f4 lens plus one or two additional bodies and up to four additional lenses. It also has space for a flash unit, compact tripod or monopod, three memory cards, plus accessories and personal items. This backpack features a low-profile shape that conforms to the user’s body plus a fast-access design that allows the bag to be rotated to the front for easy access to the equipment. An All Weather (AW) Cover provides easily accessible protection against rain, snow, dust and sand.
The Photo Traveler 150 (RRP $89 – pictured left) is Lowepro’s most compact backpack for enthusiast photographers and is designed to accommodate a small DLSR or compact system camera, plus accessories. The dedicated padded tablet compartment offers protective space for a tablet-sized computer in an easy-to-access and zippered pocket. Additional features include two SlipLock attachment loops, a quick grab handle, built-in memory card pockets and a front zippered accessory pocket.
