Lowepro’s ProTactic Camera Bag Series is Enhanced

Lowepro has enhanced its ProTactic Collection for better organization, access and protection, while retaining rugged versatility and armored protection.

Lowepro, a member of the Vitec Group, said the new line offers the BP 350 AW II and BP 450 AW II enhanced backpacks plus an expanded modular system and accessories. The bags festure four-point access with molded, turret-loading top, quick-grab from both sides, and full, back entry for set-up and security.

The bags feature formShell, a lightweight yet sturdy, composite-shell construction for impact protection; SlipLock, a system of compatible loops and tabs make it easy to add pouches and cases to larger bags so you can easily bring along accessories; and CradleFit laptop storage.

ActivZone delivers targeted support at shoulder blades, lumbar and waist for comfort on the move. Structured back panel allows for ventilation with integrated trolley strap. All Weather AW Cover, a raincoat for gear, uses a patented cover that fits snugly over a bag and can be folded away when not needed.

New backpacks and other bags will be available early October. Prices range from $219 to $269.
