Lowepro, established over 40 years ago with the goal of developing the perfect camera carrying systems, have just released two new sports backpacks – the PhotoPro AW series. Designed for sports athletes who need to carry photography equipment the two backpacks are designed to be lightweight and comfortable while still carrying the hardware you require.
The Photo Sport Sling 100AW holds 9 litres and the larger Photo Sport 200 AW holds up to 13.9 litres and both feature an ultra-lightweight design together with ‘high-performance fabrics’ that give improved durability. Each backpack has a lower patent-pending Ultra-Cinch Camera Chamber™ to protect camera gear in a padded and secure compartment, while the top provides a small pocket for sunglasses etc. and access to the main storage area.
Tim Sadler, Category Manager for Lowepro, said:
Our new Photo Sport AW backpacks are ideal for people who like to mountain bike, trail run, snowboard and take photos while they enjoy the great outdoors. We think adventure-sports athletes will appreciate the light weight, innovative design details and freedom these backpacks offer.
The bags look extremely versatile and handy for photographers who like to travel light and fast when out for a shoot. The Photo Sport Backpacks will be available from Amazon and other online retailers.
