New Lowepro Camera Bags - Lowepro has expanded their range of camera bags with a new Flipside bag, the Event Messenger Series and the Pro Roller Lite AW Series.
First seen at this year's Focus on Imaging show, the Lowepro Pro Roller Lite AW Series is a super-light duo of rolling bags, suitable to be used as carry on with most airlines.
Lowepro Event Messenger Series
Each roller measures less than 115cm, the standard size restriction required by most domestic and international carriers.* In spite of this lean profile, the main compartment is roomy, deep and specially constructed for pro-sized camera bodies, lenses and accessories.
Padded and adjustable dividers make it easy to configure equipment in a variety of set-ups and a dedicated laptop compartment, padded and with a secure hook/loop closure, is conveniently located to the left of the main compartment.
The bags feature rails that angle out of the back of the roller via a smooth, telescoping handle and when it's not in use, the handle is covered by a magnetic flap for secure, yet easy access.
The wheels are placed to the side of the roller to give the bag more stability and built-in All Weather AW Cover helps protect the roller and its contents from moisture and may be tucked into a convenient back pocket when not in use.
The Pro Roller Lite AW series also includes: an interior, zippered, see-through pocket for storing accessories or personal items; an exterior, zippered pocket for quick access to ID or travel documents; a deep front pocket with a padded center panel that offers roomy storage for folders or papers, and serves as a temporary holding place for a laptop; YKK locking zippers (lock not included); padded grab handle and webbing side handles for extra carrying options; and durable, water-resistant materials that provide protection from abrasion and moisture.
The series is available in black and in two sizes: Pro Roller Lite 250 AW and Pro Roller Lite 150 AW. The Pro Roller Lite 150 AW has an estimated 'street' price of £219.99 and the Pro Roller Lite 250 AW is priced at £259.99.
*Always check with the specific airline you are travelling with as guidelines may change or vary.
