Photo Hatchback AW series/ Dashpoint series
 
Lowepro unveils a flexible camera daypack for active and social lifestyles, plus an outdoor-inspired pouch to complement it.
 
(Petaluma, CA – August 1, 2012 )
 
– Lowepro, a product design company that builds protective gear for photography, video and portable electronic devices, launches its new camera backpack, the Photo Hatchback AW series. Modern and lightweight, it offers a beginning photographer or casual enthusiast many carrying options for all-day adventures. Launching in conjunction with the backpack is the Dashpoint series pouch. Both series feature sleek profiles, compact designs and a stylish, graphic treatment.
 
"Our Photo Hatchback AW is inspired by fun and social activities and provides multi-functional carrying options and secure gear access for consumers who like to get outside with their DSLR or compact systems cameras, plus a tablet and personal gear," said Tim Grimmer, Lowepro director of marketing and product management.
 
The "hatch" in the name refers to the body-side opening that contains a padded and customizable camera box with adjustable dividers that make it easy to change up a camera kit configuration. A storm-flap closure provides an extra moisture barrier. Cinch it closed, pull up on the grab handles and remove the box to turn the Photo Hatchback AW into a fully functional daypack.
 
Casual photographers who like to have all their digital devices within reach will appreciate the plentiful storage compartments of this pack. A padded front panel provides quick-access and dedicated space for a tablet or a MacBook Air® (laptop fits in the 22L model only). The roomy upper compartment offers 22 or 16 liters of volume for smartphones, keys, wallets, a light jacket, snack and other creature comforts.
 
A built-in All Weather AW Cover™ is a premium Lowepro feature included in this design. When needed, it can be deployed from the bottom and used to protect the entire pack and contents from sand, dust and moisture.
 
Additional features include: a padded and mesh-covered backpad for breathable comfort; tall, stretch-mesh side pockets for water bottles or a compact tripod; multiple adjustment points for a custom fit; SlipLock™ attachment loops to expand carrying capacity (with a Dashpoint pouch, for example); plus a built-in card pocket for spare memory.
 
The Photo Hatchback 22L AW fits a DSLR with attached lens (up to 18-105mm); 2 to 3 extra lenses, flash or other accessories; a tablet or MacBook Air® 11"; water bottle, extra gear and personal items.
 
The Photo Hatchback 16L AW fits a DSLR with attached lens (up to 18-55mm zoom); 1 to 2 extra lenses or flashes; tablet; water bottle, extra gear and personal items.
 
The Photo Hatchback AW series is available in three colors: Pepper Red, Slate Grey and Galaxy Blue.
 
Launching concurrently is the Dashpoint series of outdoor-inspired pouches. Lightweight, yet rugged in construction, these pouches fit and protect a myriad of digital devices—from a CSC (compact system camera) or GPS unit in the largest, to a point & shoot or pocket video in the smallest.
 
A new, t-Lock™ system (with vertical webbing and horizontal flaps) easily secures the pouch to the most commmon attachment points, such as loops, straps and daisychains (including the SlipLock™ loops on the Photo Hatchback AW).
 
The Dashpoint 30 fits a CSC with attached zoom lens or handheld GPS unit.
 
The Dashpoint 20 fits a CSC with attached pancake lens or a pro compact camera.
 
And the Dashpoint 10 fits a point & shoot, pocket video, smartphone, MP3 player or other ultra-compact device.
 
This pouch series also is available in Pepper Red, Slate Grey and Galaxy Blue.

Lowepro Urban Photo Sling Series
 
DayMen Canada, manufacturer and leading distributor of high-quality imaging, laptop and other electronic protective accessory brands, unveils its new Urban Photo Sling series. Inspired by the daily routines of street shooters, photo enthusiasts—even bloggers—these modern and compact slings offer versatile and comfortable carrying solutions.
 
The Urban Photo Sling series features a profile that lends itself to three comfortable and secure wearing options: at the front, back or to the side. The design was specially constructed to make it easy to shift positions while on the move.
 
Thoughtful storage details are featured throughout the design. A dedicated, padded compartment provides protective space for an iPad® or other tablet-style computer. A zippered front accessory pocket offers easy access to personal items. And side pockets provide grab-and-go access to a lens cap, filter, metro ticket or other small items.
 
Two loading options add to the versatility of the sling. A photographer can load it from the top for easy access or with the front panel fully open for maximum organization. The interior features a padded and adjustable divider system for custom organization of gear.
 
Additional features include: an interior keeper strap to safeguard lenses and accessories; a tuckaway waistbelt for stability, comfort and security; a contoured, mesh-covered top flap that serves as a moisture barrier; plus a built-in pocket to keep spare memory within easy reach.
 
The Urban Photo Sling 250 fits up to a Pro DSLR without grip, with an attached 70-200mm lens; 2 extra lenses or a flash and 1 lens; a tablet; the side pocket fits a water bottle or small tripod; accessories and personal items. The Urban Photo Sling 150 fits a DSLR with attached 55-200mm lens; 2 extra lenses or a flash and 1 lens; a tablet; accessories and personal items, OR, a CSC with attached kit lens; 3 extra lenses or a flash and 2 lenses; a tablet, accessories and personal items.

The New Lowepro Flipside Sport AW Series
 
DayMen Canada announces the launch of Lowepro’s new technical, lightweight daypack that offers active outdoor photographers and enthusiasts on-the-fly access to gear.
 
Lowepro Flipside Sport AW Series
 
DayMen Canada, manufacturer and leading distributor of high quality imaging, laptop and other electronic protective accessory brands, unveils its new Flipside Sport AW series from Lowepro. These two technical packs incorporate body-side access, a removable camera compartment, all-weather protection, plus lightweight carrying comfort.
 
A compact, low-profile shape allows the wearer to move with ease when running or hiking on an alpine trail or exploring challenging terrain on a mountain bike or skis. Perforated and breathable padding with air channels is strategically placed at the back panel and shoulder straps to provide comfort and moisture wicking at the back and shoulders. The unique, body-side access design provides an easy way to get to gear without having to remove the pack.
 
To create more flexibility for outdoor photographers and adventurers, the design team constructed a removable camera compartment. It includes the classic Lowepro adjustable and padded divider system, but with an inventive twist: the entire compartment may be removed, securely cinched with a storm-flap closure, and put in a safe place while the pack is converted to a fully functional daypack.
 
Built-in details add comfort and convenience for a day of outdoor activities. The packs feature a hydration-ready side pocket with space for a 1 liter reservoir (not included) and easy-to-reach port for a sip tube. An ultra-secure tripod attachment system at the side of the pack helps expand the carrying capacity—it accommodates a range of compact tripods or monopods, and helps compress the overall size of the pack.
 
Additional, outdoor-friendly features include: lashes for trekking poles/ice axe; a zippered pocket inside the back panel; multiple adjustment points for a custom fit at shoulders, sternum and waist; Lowepro’s patented, built-in All Weather AW Cover™ to protect gear from the elements; and lightweight, resilient and high-performance 210D triple-ripstop nylon with PU coating for improved durability.
 
The Flipside Sport 15L AW fits up to a Pro DSLR with grip, with attached 300mm f/2.8 lens; 1-3 extra lenses or flashes; a tripod or monopod; 1 liter hydration reservoir; cables, memory, manual and extra accessories. The Flipside Sport 10L AW fits a DSLR with attached 70-200mm f/2.8 lens; 1-2 extra lenses or flashes; a tripod or monopod; 1 liter hydration reservoir; cables, memory, manual and extra accessories.
 
Available in two colours: Lowepro Orange with Light Gray accents and Galaxy Blue with Light Gray accents. For more information about this series, please visit lowepro.com/flipside.

Fast access and maximum security
 
Lowepro introduces a large-capacity backpack for sports, adventure and outdoor photographers who carry a 500mm lens.
 
Flipside 500 AW - (Petaluma, CA, March 1, 2012)
 
Lowepro, the leading brand of protective gear for photography equipment and portable electronic devices, unveils a large-capacity outdoor backpack based on the award-winning design of the Flipside series: the Flipside 500 AW.
 
This new pack offers professional sports, adventure and outdoor shooters a mix of premium features to meet their capacity, access and comfort needs as they capture images in a variety of environments.
 
"We designed the Flipside 500 AW for professional photographers who carry a large amount of equipment in crowds, in challenging conditions, and in every corner of the world," said Tim Grimmer, Lowepro director of marketing and product management. "Its low-profile shape combined with capacity for pro-sized gear make this pack an ideal carrying solution for shooting scenarios," he added.
 
As its name reveals, the Flipside 500 AW is built to protect, store and carry a 500mm f/4 lens, plus additional pro-sized equipment in a padded and spacious main compartment. An adjustable divider system makes it easy to organize gear in a variety of configurations. A Hideaway Tripod Mount™ attachment system includes a foot holder, plus sturdy buckle and strap to secure a standard-size tripod or monopod to the front of the pack.
 
A body-side access design serves the outdoor photographer in two practical ways. First, it offers easy access to gear when the waistbelt is secured and the pack is rotated to the front and unzipped. Second, it provides extra security when the pack is worn, as the back-entry compartment is placed next to the body.
 
The contoured shoulder straps and padded waistbelt provide extra comfort and help evenly distribute the weight of a heavy load.
 
Additional features of the Flipside 500 AW include: Lowepro's patented, built-in All Weather AW Cover™ to protect valuable gear and personal items from the elements; a Hideaway Tripod Mount™ system to attach a standard-size tripod or monopod to the outside of the pack; a zippered front storage pocket with plentiful space for a tablet, cables, adaptors, small accessories and personal items; built-in pockets for spare memory; and two SlipLock™ attachment loops to expand carrying capacity.
 
The Flipside 500 AW is available in Black. For more information on this product, other models in the Flipside series and the entire product collection, please contact Lowepro or visit www.lowepro.com.
