Lowepro has launched Whistler, a four-season and alpine-inspired backpack series, and the next generation of its active-adventure backpack, Photo Sport II.
Whistler is a technical backpack that comes in two sizes – 350 AW and 450 AW. Ideal for wilderness photographers and adventurers who carry an equal measure of camera, video and functional outdoor equipment, the bag’s hinged and zippered back panel offers partial or full access to photography gear, and its rigid internal structure can support attachment of skis, poles, tripods, ice axes and more.
The updated Photo Sport II series offers camera and personal gear portability when engaged in aerobic sports or activities. The Photo Sport BP 200 AW II and 300 AW II both include a new UltraCinch design, featuring side access and a custom pull-tab to tighten and stabilize the bag’s photo gear space in one swift action. The bags feature lightweight, weather-resistant materials and a built-in All Weather AW Cover. An ActivZone harness system, padded waistbelt and adjustable shoulder straps offer padding, and there’s a dedicated compartment for a 2-litre water reservoir (not included).
