    Review: Lowepro SlingShot 202 AW

    Short version: The SlingShot 202 is a strange bag. It’s not really a backpack, although you do wear it on your back, and it’s not really a messenger bag, but you do put the strap over your shoulder. It’s kind of a strange combination of both, taking the best of each and combining them into one bag. Surprisingly, it works pretty well. Read More

    Hands-on with the Lowepro Pro Roller x100

    Lowepro announced a handful of new camera bags at PMA in March and over the last couple months they’ve slowly trickled into the market. We were lucky enough to snag a Pro Roller x100 early and have spent quite a bit of time with it over the last few weeks including trips to Indianapolis for the Red Bull MotoGP. Read More

    Lowepro updates the AW, Trekker series with the Classified and 600 AW II

    I love my Lowepro Fastpack, but it’s bright red and draws far too much attention then I’d like. Not only do I pack my Pentax K200D and a handful of lenses, but it also stores my MacBook Pro and a couple grand worth of other doodads. My brother suggested I cover the Lowepro logo since NYC thieves are educated enough to know who they are. It’s something I’ve thought about… Read More

    The Seattle Sling Dry Bag keeps your cams dry and afloat

    The Seattle Sling CA-2001-BLK, the first case produced by Made Products after the Lowepro acquisition, is meant for all you adventurous types. The claim to fame is the case’s zipper-less dry bag center compartment that will obviously work great ’round water, but also hanging on the beach or cruising Dakar by keeping your camera’s dry and dust free. Your gear should… Read More

    Review: Lowepro Flipside 200

    Much like its big brother the Fastpack 250, the Flipside 200, has been a great addition to my arsenal of travel luggage for gadgets and cameras alike. The Flipside 200, however, has primarily been my camera bag for the better part of the last three months. My Pentax K200D with battery grip and two extra lenses fit nice and snug into the compartments that are revealed by zipping open the main… Read More

    Lowepro releases new camera bags for your carrying pleasure


    I could have used one of these when I was traveling, although at the time I owned only one lens and no flash, so I suppose my laptop bag was just as good. The Inverse AW beltpack, left, and the Nova AW shoulder bag at right are both weather-sealed and provided with all the little pockets, padded compartments, and accessibility options that a pro photographer could need. I’m not sure… Read More

    Lowepro Primus AW is the most eco-friendly camera bag


    I’m really digging on Lowepro’s gear lately. The Fastpack I reviewed a couple months back is still in great shape. I’ve got the Flipside, which is fantastic. I still have to do a formal review on it, but it’s phenomenal. Anyway, this being Green Week for us, I thought I’d share the Primus AW with you all. It’s Lowepro’s most eco-friendly pack and… Read More

    Review: LowePro Fastpack 250 backpack

    It seems my never-ending quest for the ultimate gear bag has come to an end. LowePro, purveyors of everything camera related, appears to be the definitive winner at the moment. I’ve been testing out the Fastpack backpack over the last couple weeks and it’s been a great experience. It’s meant to be a photographers gear bag, but I’ve found that all the pockets for lenses… Read More

  • PMA 2008: LowePro Flipside & Fastpack Backpacks

    PMA 2008: LowePro Flipside & Fastpack Backpacks

    Lowepro always busts out some stylish backpacks at PMA and this year compact and convenient were the operative words in Vegas. In their slim and urban Flipside line, we like the 300 ($57), a slender, lightweight backpack with enough room for a professional digital SLR body and 80-200mm f/2.8 lens attached plus up to four additional lenses or flash units. One of these packs would be great… Read More
