Lowepro Introduces Next Generation Of Award-Winning Protactic Series at Photokina

Lowepro's worldwide #1 selling professional camera bag series, ProTactic, has been enhanced for better organisation, access and protection with expanded modular system and accessories.

Lowepro, a company with a 50-year reputation in creating protective gear-carrying solutions for image makers, today announced the second generation of their worldwide #1 selling ProTactic series. The high-performance, tactical-inspired collection has been redesigned for better organisation, access and protection, while staying true to the ProTactic promise of rugged versatility and armoured protection. The new line offers enhanced backpacks plus an expanded modular system and accessories.

Featured ProTactic Technology

  • 4-Point Access: Never miss a critical mission thanks to the four access points of the BP 450 and BP 350: molded, turret-loading top, quick-grab from both sides, and full, back entry for set-up and security.
  • FormShell: Lightweight yet sturdy, composite-shell construction delivers superior impact protection on our packs and cases.
  • SlipLock: System of compatible loops and tabs make it easy to add pouches and cases to larger bags so you can easily bring along water bottles, memory cards and more.
  • CradleFit Laptop Storage: cleverly constructed compartment suspends and safeguards laptop in backpacks. BP 450 fits a 15-inch laptop; BP 350 fits a 13-inch laptop.
  • 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 your gear, our patented cover fits snugly over a bag and can be folded away when not needed. An innovative way to protect against rain, snow, dust and sand.

''In designing carrying solutions, we always listen closely to what our image makers are telling us,'' explains Tim Grimmer, Senior Director of Product for Lowepro. ''They are seeking increased versatility, organization, and accessibility with the performance and protection ProTactic is known for. We’re excited to offer this enhanced line-up featuring more adaptive interiors, always-ready access and a great collection of exterior attachments and accessories.''
