loweproawseries.jpgLowepro has announced two camera bags for outdoor enthusiasts. The Photo Sport AW Series was designed for outdoor adventurers that like to bring photo gear along when skiing, biking, snowboarding, etc., and the Optics Line was created to meet the unique needs of bird photographers and wildlife observers venturing in to the wilds

Photo Sport AW Series
Lowepro's Photo Sport 200 AW backpack and Photo Sport Sling 100 AW are both dual-compartment packs featuring supreme protection for adventure sports enthusiasts. To ensure quick access to camera equipment, the lower compartment of each pack includes Lowepro's Ultra-Cinch Camera Chamberâ„¢ that snugs gear in a secured compartment to prevent bouncing while in motion. A zippered, side-access pocket allows the wearer to quickly rotate the pack to the front, unzip, un-cinch and access the camera compartment which can accommodate a DSLR with attached lens and a flash unit.

This minimalist set up is augmented by a top-loading upper compartment that provides flexible storage space--13.9 liters in the 200 AW backpack and 9 liters in the Sling 100 AW--for other essential photo gear or a jacket, snack, cell phone, guide books, etc. Additional features specifically designed for outdoor adventurers include: reflective piping, triple-ripstop nylon exterior, Lowepro's patented All Weather AW Coverâ„¢, multiple attachment points for trekking/ski pole loops, extra webbing to expand capacity and in the 200 Aw a dedicated space for hydration pouch. The Photo Sport 200 AW and Photo Sport Sling 100 AW are available in Black/Light Grey and Lowepro Orange/Light Grey for $199.99 and $129.99 respectively.
