PETALUMA, Calif., Sept. 15, 2014
— Lowepro, the leading maker of photography carrying solutions, unleashes a robust design from the Professional Collection: the ProTactic Series. These packs are built for photojournalists, documentary photographers and urban shooters who rely on mission-critical access and on-the-fly versatility to get them behind the lines and into the action.
“From the design table to field testing, ProTactic has generated more energy and excitement internally than any other product I’ve been involved with,” said Tim Grimmer, Lowepro brand director. “We can’t wait to see where photographers take it and how they’ll set it up.”
Four access points at the top, sides and back help a photographer capture a shot and organize like no other camera backpack Lowepro has designed. The secure, body-side opening provides wide access to an interior built with the patent-pending MaxFit System for maximum capacity with a snug and protective fit, plus a dedicated laptop compartment and full organization panel on the inside lid.
Access gear from the molded, turret-loading top or quickly grab from either side – zippered compartments left and right are positioned to reach gear without removing the pack.
Create limitless set-ups with a super-versatile SlipLock attachment strap system built on the exterior of the pack. Five modular accessories are included: a water bottle pouch, accessory case, tripod cup and two cinch straps – all SlipLock compatible.
ProTactic features Lowepro’s ActivZone System technology that delivers targeted support at shoulder blades, lumbar and waist for comfort on the move. A removable waistbelt – padded and featuring breathable, mesh-covered support – makes it easy reduce the profile for packing or travel. Wear it for extra support and storage; two zippered hip pockets offer space for quick-grab items.
The ProTactic Series also includes these premium features: a patented, built-in All Weather AW Cover; multiple organization pockets inside and out; and Lowepro’s CradleFit laptop pocket that suspends and protects a device within the pack.
