Lowepro has launched two new bag ranges, seen for the first time at The Photography Show.
The Lowepro Passport series is a versatile range of soft-sided camera bags ideal for shooting in and around the city.
Each of the Passport Series features a removable camera compartment which is impact-resistant and can be customised to carry either a DSLR or a CSC. A CradleFit system pocket in each bag offers dedicated storage for a laptop or tablet. Constructed from floating foam, this clever pocket suspends items to protect them from impact.
The Passport range is available in three designs; backpack, messenger bag, and sling bag.
All the bags fit a CSC or compact DSLR and extra lens or flash, along with a 13 inch laptop or tablet, smartphone and personal items.
The Passport Backpack is available for £52, the Passport Messenger for £60 and the Passport Sling III for £52.
Also launched was the Lowepro Roller X AW Series, a large capacity travel storage solution for photographers. The new rolling case design follows in the footsteps of Lowepro’s previous award-winning roller bags and offers even more capacity and protection for photography gear.
The Pro Roller X Series AW features the patent-pending MaxFit System - a protective divider system for safe storage of cameras and related equipment which can be easily customised to suit the equipment you’re carrying and maximise internal storage space. This divider system sits in a Reserve Pack which can be carried alone as a backpack or zipped into the hardshell exterior for high impact protection when travelling.
A zip pocket in the inside flap of the suitcase provides ideal storage for smaller items such as straps, cloths and storage devices including memory cards. Once the case is zipped up, a front organiser pocket and a stretch laptop pocket are easily accessible.
The Roller X AW Series comes in three sizes, 300, 200 and 100, the largest of which will hold 1-2 Pro DSLRs with grip, 8-10 lenses and up to a 17 inch laptop, along with space for personal items.
The Pro Roller X 300 retails for £400, the Pro Roller X 200 for £367, and the Pro Roller X 100 for £316.
