Lowepro Press Release
Outdoor Pro Photographers: Lowepro’s got it in the bag!
We all know it’s a challenge – DSLR cameras and pro lenses can be a heavy combination to carry when you’re in the great outdoors - but with the new Lowepro Photo Sport Pro 30L AW backpack, you can take strain out of carrying your kit on the move.
Whether you’re off walking, trekking, shooting adventure sports or simply enjoying the landscape, this new backpack is ideal for those who need a fully featured pack designed to protect camera equipment, but also ticks the boxes for comfort, style and even hydration.
The Photo Sport 30L AW is constructed from lightweight, resilient and high performing 210D triple rip-stop nylon with PU coating for long lasting durability. A trampoline style air-flow suspension system with breathable mesh, offers the outdoor photographer a comfortable carrying solution for a heavy load – keeping the pack away from your back to allow both comfort and ventilation.

- The top-loading compartment has plenty of room for jackets, hats, maps and other outdoor accessories – with multiple compartments within the pack, stash pockets on the waist-belt and a big ‘stow’ pocket on the front

- And for our glorious weather – home or away – there’s Lowepro’s patented, built in All Weather Cover to provide additional protection from the elements
