0Share

Lowepro has introduced three new all-weather photo travel bags: the Lowepro Fastpack BP 250 AW III, Lowepro Fastpack PRO BP AW III, and Lowepro Slingshot SL 250 AW lll. Designed for a 50/50 split between camera gear and personal gear, the new bags are about 33% lighter and about 25% more compact than their predecessors.

As their names imply, the Lowepro “Fast”-series packs are designed for quick and easy access to your camera gear without having to first stop and sit the bag down on a step, bench, rock, or walkway. By pulling the bag from behind, sling-style, Lowepro’s patented Simplified QuickDoor design enables you to reach into the deepest recesses of the bag for easy in-and-out access to your cameras and lenses without having to stop in your tracks.
