Lowepro just announced two new bags, one designed for the street and one for the mountaineer in mind. Lowepro was inspired by street photographers and bloggers when they designed the Urban Photo Sling. The Flipside Sport on the other hand is for a comfortable hike or any outdoor activity away from the city.
The Flipside Sport is an all weather backpack that was designed so you can move with ease while doing outdoor activities like hiking or mountain biking. This daypack also features a pocket for a water pack so its more convenient to stay hydrated. Although the bag is not a sling it allows you to access the contents without removing the bag. This is done by having the waist strap connected so that when you remove the shoulder straps you can swing the bag around the front and simply unzip. The bag also features a side tripod cinch for securely fastening a tripod or monopod. You can also convert the camera bag into a full day bag by removing the included padding and camera compartment. The video below or the information on their website will give you all the information you need on the new bag. It looks like a bag that may replace my seven year old Lowepro backpack.
The Urban Photo Sling allows you to take your camera and tablet with you wherever you go. It’s designed with the street shooter or blogger in mind. The bag allows you to wear it three ways and load the bag two ways. The bag can be worn on the front, side like a messenger bag or on your back for comfort. The bag contents can easily be accessed by the swinging it to your side but if you want to maximize the amount of organization you can fully open the bag. Just like any other Lowepro bag we have come to expect the ability to be able to organize the dividers on the inside.
The Flipside Sport will come in two colors as well as two sizes will range from $124.99 to $134.95. The Urban Photo Sling will be available in black and available in two sizes from $84.99 to $99.99.
