Lowepro has added to its Photo Sport range with two flexible shoulder bags and the Photo Sport Pro 30L AW, a pro standard large capacity backpack.
The Photo Sport Pro 30L AW is a large-capacity backpack designed for flexibility. It is constructed of lightweight and high-performing 210D triple-ripstop nylon with PU coating for improved durability. A trampoline-style, air-flow suspension system with breathable mesh offers the outdoor photographer comfort when carrying a heavy load.
A removable, Ultra-Cinch Camera Chamber, which is accessible from the side, can accommodate a Pro DSLR with grip and an attached telephoto zoom lens. The chamber may be tightened for a secure, bounce-free fit while wearing, and removed to transform the Photo Sport Pro 30L AW into a roomy and fully functional daypack. Multiple compartments make it easy to store and access lots of personal gear: a big stow pocket in the front; a zippered pocket on the top; two zippered stash pockets on the waist belt; and an upper, top-loading compartment with ample room for jackets, hats, lunch, snacks, maps and other essentials.
Lowepro’s patented, built-in All Weather AW Cover may be deployed to protect the pack and gear from wind, rain, snow and sand. A hydration-ready side pocket with a drinking tube port offers easy access to a 2-litre reservoir (not included). Attachment points secure trekking poles or an ice axe to the front of the pack. The Photo Sport Pro 30L AW is available in Slate Grey at an RRP of $259.
Lowepro Photo Sport Shoulder bags are built to accommodate a wide variety of camera and personal gear. The customisable and removable PhotoCell camera insert provides padded protection and a versatile divider system that adjusts to fit a DSLR camera or CSC kit, making it easy to change gear depending on the day’s shooting plans.
The PhotoCell is also adjustable within the shoulder bag: hook/loop attachments at the base allow you to position your camera gear at the front, middle or back of the bag. The PhotoCell may be securely cinched with a storm-flap closure, lifted out via grab handles, and put in a safe place while the shoulder bag is converted to a fully functional day bag that can be completely folded/compressed as the need arises.
Multiple storage options provide space for all types of items. The roomy interior fits lunch, a light jacket, a tablet with its protective cover, sunglasses and other essentials. Two exterior zippered pockets can hold a smartphone, lens cap, wallet, keys or lip balm. An interior zippered mesh pocket holds spare batteries, memory cards and cables. And a quick-grab outer pocket fits a water bottle. Additional features include: an adjustable, wide-webbing shoulder strap with cam lock buckle for a custom fit over shoulder or across body (high or low); and lightweight, weather-resistant fabrics to provide all-day wearing comfort and offer protection from light moisture, dust and sand.
Lowepro Photo Sport Shoulder bags are available in Purple/Grey, with the 12-litre bag selling for $89 and the 18-litre bag for $109.
