Lowepro Press Release
Take to the mountains with Lowepro’s ultimate backpack for outdoor photographers!
If you love photography in the great outdoors but have never quite found the right camera backpack for mountain adventures, search no longer – it’s here! Lowepro has launched the brand new Rover Pro AW series of backpacks – now available in the UK in time for Christmas!
The Lowepro Rover Pro series includes two backpacks (35L & 45L) specifically designed for adventure photographers who demand more – whether out for a day on the trails, or overnight on longer trips.
Firstly the backpack is designed for comfort on the mountains with its trampoline style suspension system the pack is kept off your back allowing the free flow of air and even distribution of weight.
The contoured shoulder straps and waist belt are also fully adjustable – ensuring breathable load carrying comfort for both male and female photographers. This custom fit system accommodates 16-19 inch torso lengths, so is truly adjustable for a range of heights.
The pack itself is made from the highest quality, lightweight technical fabrics: 210D ripstop nylon with PU coating for added durability. And for the ultimate protection from the weather there’s also Lowepro’s patented All Weather Cover™ – which on this pack is removable and reflective – so can double as a groundsheet on which to place the pack in wet conditions, while providing enhanced visibility for safety on the hills.
Inside, this feature packed backpack contains removable, modular camera cases which provide the top quality protection for your gear. Accessible in two ways – you can either reach camera gear from the traditional top opening of the pack, or for super fast access, from the front-hatch opening. The camera cases can also be completely removed from the pack turning it into a tough spec outdoor backpack.
