PETALUMA, Calif., March 25, 2014 — Lowepro, the product design company that builds protective, high-quality gear for photography, video and portable electronic devices, launches its Passport Series of soft-sided and modern camera bags: Passport Backpack, Passport Messenger and Passport Sling III.
“The Passport Series offers consumers a discreet and flexible way to carry their photo gear, along with a laptop or tablet and personal items,” said Tim Grimmer, Lowepro brand director. “The backpack, messenger and sling each include an impact-resistant and removable camera insert, so you can blend in with the crowd and feel confident your gear is protected.”
Impact-resistant Camera Insert
Protection and flexibility combine in the build of the impact-resistant camera insert. Padded and adjustable dividers allow you to fit anything from a CSC to a compact DSLR, plus an extra accessory, and keep your kit secure from bumps and abrasion. Lift out the insert and your bag becomes a fully functioning backpack, messenger or sling for the day.
CradleFit for Laptop/Tablet
The Passport Series features a new kind of protective space for carrying a laptop or tablet: a CradleFit pocket. It features classic Lowepro padding with floating-foam construction to suspend and protect a device within each Passport Series bag.
Three, Everyday Styles
Soft-sided and modern, the Passport Series takes inspiration from Lowepro’s original and everyday camera sling design. The series expands to include the next-generation sling, backpack and messenger – each suited to day trips or longer travel with a full set of convenient features and low-key, non-camera-bag style. Whichever styles consumers choose, they can use their Passport Series bag to keep a compact camera, go-to tablet and plenty of essentials protected and within easy reach.
Convenient touches add to the everyday appeal of the Passport Series. Each bag includes an interior mesh zippered pocket and a built-in key clip to secure small items and quickly retrieve them.
The Passport Backpack features a zippered front organizer pocket, two tall side pockets for water bottles, plus a padded mesh backpad with contoured shoulder straps for a comfortable fit.
The Passport Messenger includes a front organizer pocket under the flap, a quick-grab handle for an extra carrying option, and an adjustable shoulder strap with a removable shoulder pad for customized comfort while wearing.
And the Passport Sling III includes an expandable compartment that allows the user to unzip and increase interior storage space by 30% – ideal for farmers market finds and souveniers. The sling also features an adjustable shoulder strap with removable shoulder pad.
