Lowepro,UK make hard cases

km_kmpk1422cLowepro has partnered with Underwater Kinetics (UK) to launch the Hardside Series of camera cases.

Tested to a rating of IP67, which translates to 100 percent protection against the ingress of dust and sand, and makes it watertight for at least 30 minutes under 15 cm to 1 m of water, the cases have a tough outer shell of formed ABS resin and a removable, soft-sided insert with a padded divider system.

The Hardside series consists of three cases: Hardside 400 Photo and 300 Photo for DSLR kits, and Hardside 200 Video to house action cam kits such as GoPro. To differentiate among existing, foam-filled and single set-up camera cases in the market today, each Hardside case includes a protective and fully customizable photo/video insert with Lowepro’s padded divider system. Tuck-away backpack straps and zippered pockets provide an out-of-the-case option.

Hardside 300 Photo and 200 Video meet standard airline carry-on requirements.

The Hardside series also includes integrated release valves in the latches for automatic pressure equalization in low and high altitudes; interior organization pocket on inside lid of insert; sturdy lift handles; full-length piano hinge on back, and lockable handles on hard case.

The Hardside 400 Photo fitsa pro DSLR with 70-200 mm f/2.8 lens attached; 6-8 lenses; accessories. The Hardside 300 Photo fits a DSLR with 70-200 mm f/2.8 lens attached; 4-6 lenses or flashes; accessories. The Hardside 200 Video fits 5-10 action cams; multiple mounts and attachments; accessories.
