Lowepro SlingShot AW Series Press Release


Designed for the photojournalist. Adopted by the enthusiast. Improved for all. Lowepro updates the best-selling and award-winning SlingShot AW series.

(Sebastopol, CA, February 16, 2010) – Lowepro, the leading brand of protective gear for photography equipment and portable electronics, unveils the next generation of its SlingShot AW series. Designed to go from carry mode to ready mode in seconds, the comfortable sling bag rotates from back to front for fast and easy access to gear.

"This updated version builds on the inventive design of its predecessor and incorporates enhanced features based on suggestions from our customers," said Tim Grimmer, Lowepro product manager. "We've added extra space for personal items, faster access, improved organization and the ability to add a tripod," he added.

The new SlingShot AW offers increased volume in its upper compartment for personal items and includes an elastic band for securing a camera manual or book. A zippered stash pocket placed at the top is the ideal spot to store a UV filter, cell phone or keys.

In addition to its ergonomic and quick-rotating design, the new SlingShot AW features easy-glide zippers throughout its construction, providing smooth operation and fast access to all of the compartments.

The fully padded and customizable main camera compartment includes an updated divider system to accommodate the most-popular models of DSLRs and their compatible lenses and accessories. A repositioned microfiber cleaning cloth is built into a convenient mesh pocket that is easy to access but out of way when not in use. The new series now features a Hideaway Tripod Mount™ system which secures a compact tripod or monopod to the side of the sling via a foldout holder, quick-release buckle and strap.

As with the original series, the new SlingShot AW includes Lowepro's patented, built-in All Weather AW Cover™ to protect gear from the elements during inclement weather. Additional practical details include: 3 SlipLock™ attachment loops to expand carrying capacity and two built-in memory card pockets located on the inside lid of the main compartment.

The new SlingShot AW series is available in three sizes in Black/Grey: SlingShot 102 AW, SlingShot 202 AW and SlingShot 302 AW.
