Lowepro has launched its new Pro Roller Lite AW Series – a lightweight duo of rolling bags, suitable to be used as carry on with most airlines. Each roller measures less than 115cm, yet features a roomy and deep main compartment designed for pro-sized camera bodies, lenses and accessories. Padded and adjustable dividers make it easy to configure equipment in a variety of set-ups, depending on the scope of a shoot or assignment. Another key feature is Lowepro’s ProTech Trolley System of rails that angle out of the back of the roller via a smooth, telescoping handle. When not in use, the streamlined handle is covered by a magnetic flap for secure yet easy access. The series is available in black and in two sizes: Pro Roller Lite 250 AW (£259.99) and Pro Roller Lite 150 AW (£219.99).
Lowepro Press Release
TRAVEL ‘LIGHT AND LEAN’ WITH THE NEW LOWEPRO PRO ROLLER LITE AW SERIES
Also launching at Focus this year is the Lowepro Pro Roller Lite AW Series – a super-light duo of rolling bags, suitable to be used as carry on with most airlines. Impressively, the smaller Pro Roller Light 100 weighs just 3.6kg, and even the larger Pro Roller 250 weighs only 4.3kg – so you can carry and protect more precious camera kit, rather than using up valuable luggage allowance with a heavy bag.
The Pro Roller Lite AW series is designed for professionals who travel around the world with their camera and computer equipment.
Each roller measures less than 115cm, the standard size restriction required by most domestic and international carriers.* In spite of this lean profile, the main compartment is roomy, deep and specially constructed for pro-sized camera bodies, lenses and accessories.
Padded and adjustable dividers make it easy to configure equipment in a variety of set-ups, depending on the scope of a shoot or assignment. A dedicated laptop compartment, padded and with a secure hook/loop closure, is conveniently located to the left of the main compartment.
Another key feature is Lowepro’s innovative ProTech Trolley System™ - comprising rails that angle out of the back of the roller via a smooth, telescoping handle – ensuring maximum capacity inside the bag. When not in use, the streamlined handle is covered by a magnetic flap for secure, yet easy access.
Complementing the easy operation of the ProTech Trolley System™ are Lowepro’s premium wheels. Their engineered placement to the side of the roller help create a super-efficient stability as they move along city sidewalks or airport terminals.
Lowepro’s patented, built-in All Weather AW Cover™ helps protect the roller and its contents from moisture and may be tucked into a convenient back pocket when not in use.
The Pro Roller Lite AW series also includes: an interior, zippered, see-through pocket for storing accessories or personal items; an exterior, zippered pocket for quick access to ID or travel documents; a deep front pocket with a padded center panel that offers roomy storage for folders or papers, and serves as a temporary holding place for a laptop; YKK locking zippers (lock not included); padded grab handle and webbing side handles for extra carrying options; and durable, water-resistant materials that provide protection from abrasion and moisture.
The series is available in black and in two sizes: Pro Roller Lite 250 AW and Pro Roller Lite 150 AW. For more information on this series and other products, please contact Lowepro or visit http://www.lowepro.com
