Water. One word that'll have your camera shaking on its shoulder strap, it has sounded the tolling bell for countless cameras over the years.
Lowepro proudly announce the worlds first fully waterproof photo-backpack, the DryZone 200. Designed using Dry-suit technology, incorporating a patented TIZIP watertight zipper, the DryZone 200 protects photographic and electronic gear from the very worst of the elements.
Three ingenious components are at the heart of the DryZone. The first is the waterproof case -it's a dry-suit for the backpack. Inside here is the second - a protective, padded compartment, that can be totally customized to suit your needs, whether it be a 35mm or compact medium format system, or even that delicate piece of life saving electronic gear.
Wrapping all this up is a backpack with a massive specification list, including details like two self-draining outer pockets for wet gear and a drain hole so water doesn't accumulate in the pack.
Lowepro's typical attention to detail has also ensured tripods can be carried and Sliplock accessories can be attached to the padded waistbelt. A new harness system also ensures this pack is every bit as comfortable to carry as other Lowepro backpacks. Available in high visibility yellow or a low-key grey the pack will appeal to nature and sports photographers alike.
Priced at 299, this will surely be the ultimate go-anywhere, do anything pack.Lowepro cases are stocked by most quality photo dealers. To find your nearest stockist, use the dealer locator at www.loweoro-uk.com/dealers.asp call Lowepro UK on 01902 864646 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
