Two Distinctive Designs Offer Nod to Lowepro Brand’s Outdoor Heritage
 
SALT LAKE CITY and PETALUMA, Calif., Aug. 5, 2015 - Lowepro, the leading maker of photography carrying solutions, today expanded its trusted offerings for outdoor photographers with the launch of Whistler, a four-season and alpine-inspired backpack series, and the next generation of its best-selling and active-adventure backpack, Photo Sport II.
 
“Both of these inventive, technical designs evoke memories of founder Greg Lowe and the origins of the company that he built,” said Tim Grimmer, vice president of brand and product at Lowepro. “From the adventurer who works in extremes, to the athlete who likes to go fast and light, we’ve created these bags to help outdoor photographers take and protect their gear to the ends of the earth.”
 
Born on the side of a mountain, the Whistler series was designed and tested by professional photographers, including Whistler shooter Paul Morrison, in the extreme conditions of the Coast Mountains of British Columbia, Canada.
 
“I’ve worked with Lowepro bags since I began shooting skiing over 35 years ago, and it was a Lowepro bag that helped my camera gear survive a large avalanche in 1997,” said Paul Morrison, professional photographer and Loweprofessional. “Cameras mean different things to different photographers, but I think most agree that there is an attachment to cameras that can run quite deep. Bags are the protective connections between our gear and us. That was the thinking that brought about Whistler.”
 
Whistler is a versatile, four-season technical backpack that comes in two sizes - 350 AW and 450 AW. Ideal for wilderness photographers and adventurers who carry an equal measure of camera, video and functional outdoor equipment, the bag’s hinged and zippered back panel offers partial or full access to photography gear, and its rigid internal structure can support attachment of skis, poles, tripods, ice axes and more. Featuring Lowepro’s ActivZone System harness and MaxFit divider system, the bag is comfortable to wear and flexible to pack. Whistler’s extra-protective build keeps gear safe from the elements, including a waterproof fabric and base, detachable All Weather AW Cover and removable camera gear insert.
 
Addressing the demands of two passions in one pack, the updated Photo Sport II series offers camera and personal gear portability when engaged in aerobic sports or activities. The Photo Sport BP 200 AW II and 300 AW II both include a new UltraCinch design, featuring side access and a custom pull-tab to tighten and stabilize the bag’s photo gear space in one swift action. Lightweight, weather-resistant materials and a built-in All Weather AW Cover keep photographers moving when the weather changes. An ActivZone harness system, padded waistbelt and adjustable shoulder straps offer padding in all the right spots, while the bag’s dedicated compartment for a 2-liter water reservoir (not included) helps photographers stay hydrated while running, hiking, biking, climbing, boarding or trekking.
 
The Whistler BP 350 AW ($349.95) and 450 AW ($389.95) and the Photo Sport BP 200 AW II ($169.95) and 300 AW II ($199.95) are now available for purchase at authorized retail locations.
 
B&H has the Whistler BP 350AW / 450AW and Photo Sport BP 200 AW II / 300 AW II available for preorder.

Sports, event and active photographers will benefit from the updated features, including four wearing options.

The multiple wearing options allow for tremendous freedom of movement. The bag includes 2 utility straps to configure as an over-the-shoulder strap, 3-point holster, or 4-point chest harness.

“Trekker is our largest capacity backpack line, so our number one goal in refreshing the design was to improve the premium suspension system and offer a best-in-class solution for carrying a heavy load,” said Tim Grimmer, Lowepro brand director.
 
The ActivLift System harness is the result. This purposefully designed system is constructed to mimic the natural “S” curve of the back, transfer more weight from waist to hips, make it easy to adjust the length to the torso, and include airflow channels to improve breathability. Ten adjustment points allow for a custom, fine-tuned fit from the top of the shoulders to the lumbar.

The patent-pending MaxFit System of adjustable dividers is featured in the Pro Trekker 650 AW and 450 AW packs.

PETALUMA, Calif., Sept. 15, 2014 — Lowepro, the leading maker of photography carrying solutions, partners with Underwater Kinetics, manufacturer of uncompromising performance products, to launch the most extreme protection solution in Lowepro’s Professional Collection: the Hardside Series of camera cases.
 
Tested to a rating of IP67, which translates to 100% protection against the ingress of dust and sand, and makes it watertight for at least 30 minutes under 15cm to 1m of water, these hardworking cases double up on protection and versatility with a tough outer shell of formed ABS resin and a removable, soft-sided insert with a padded divider system.
 
“We knew it would take a lot of research and development to play in this category,” said Kevin Crandall, Lowepro director of design and development. “To do it right, we chose Underwater Kinetics, the leading manufacturer of ultra-rugged dry cases, to offer a truly airtight solution – and I mean truly airtight. The long-lasting and durable silicone gasket and seal is virtually maintenance free, unlike other hard cases, and restricts all moisture and debris from getting into the camera case.”
 
The Hardside Series is comprised of three cases: Hardside 400 Photo and 300 Photo for DSLR kits, and Hardside 200 Video to house action cam kits such as GoPro. To differentiate among existing, foam-filled and single set-up camera cases in the market today, each Hardside case includes a protective and fully customizable photo/video insert with Lowepro’s padded divider system. Tuck-away backpack straps and zippered pockets provide a versatile, out-of-the-case option for photographers and videographers who like to have a Plan B option on their shoots.
 
Studio, location and traveling professionals will appreciate the stackable form factor of Hardside Series cases. You can store, lock, carry and ship with ease – and Hardside 300 Photo and 200 Video meet standard airline carry-on requirements (less than 45 linear in. / 114.3 cm).
 
The Hardside Series also includes these premium features: integrated release valves in the latches for automatic pressure equalization in low and high altitudes; interior organization pocket on inside lid of insert; sturdy lift handles; plus full-length piano hinge on back, and lockable handles on hard case.
 
Hardside 400 Photo fits: Pro DSLR with 70-200mm f/2.8 lens attached; 6-8 lenses; accessories
US MSRP $249.95
 
Hardside 300 Photo fits: DSLR with 70-200mm f/2.8 lens attached; 4-6 lenses or flashes; accessories

The hardshell exterior of this rolling bag design is constructed of long-wearing balllistic nylon to provide gear with high-impact protection when moving on city streets and from the rigors of airline travel.
 
Built-in Weather Protection
A patented, built-in All Weather AW Cover adds another layer of protection – in this case from the elements – and may be deployed from a hidden pocket at the back of the bag.
 
Travel-friendly to the Max
The Pro Roller x200 and x100 are sized to meet standard airline carry-on requirements (each measures less than 45 linear inches / 114.3 centimeters). All bags feature a compact and secure TSA-approved lock with locking zippers. And all include one of Lowepro’s inventive solutions – a Reserve Pack that unzips from the hard case to provide extra versatility for those times when a ‘plan B’ is needed.
 
Thoughful Details for Professional Use
The Lowepro design team kept ease of use in mind as they added these thoughtful details: vibration-absorbing wheels with an ABEC-5 rating for a smooth glide; a deep laptop pocket at the front of bag for quick access; see-through interior pockets for extra accessories like cables, filters, headphones and batteries; removable accessory pouches to keep small accessories within easy reach (two pouches included with x300 AW and x200 AW models; one with x100 AW model); and a no-drop front pocket to stash and grab essentials like a smartphone, travel documents and keys.

  • Pro Roller x300 AW fits: 1-2 Pro DSLRs with grip, 8-10 lenses (up to 600mm), accessories and small personal items, and up to a 17" laptop.
  • Pro Roller x200 AW fits: 1-2 Pro DSLRs with grip, 6-8 lenses (to up 600mm), accessories and small personal items, and up to a 17" laptop.
