Lowepro Press Release
AWARD WINNING LOWEPRO FLIPSIDE JUST WENT SUPERSIZE!
Lowepro has launched a new 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 – designed specifically to accommodate pro spec camera bodies and longer lenses.
As the name suggests, the Flipside 500 AW is built to protect, store and carry a pro camera body, up to 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.
Also 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 also 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 zippered front storage pocket with plentiful space for a tablet device, 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 and other models in the Flipside series, please visit http://www.lowepro.com.
