November 10, 2009: Lowepro has announced two new professional camera bags that will be in retail stores in time for Christmas.
The Photo Runner 100 (RRP $75) is a convertible beltpack/shoulder bag that provides a lightweight carrying solution for a DSLR kit. Lightweight and slim in profile it’s an ideal everyday bag for the enthusiast. It will also serve as a compact solution for the active photographer shooting an event or taking a day trip. A fast-access side zip enables photographers to work out of the roomy main compartment. Adjustable, padded dividers offer multiple ways to load equipment. SlipLock attachment loops and webbing straps at the bottom expand carrying options.

Two outside pockets provide quick access to accessories and personal gear. One features a ‘quiet’ cord closure. The tuck-away waistbelt with compression straps keeps the weight of gear on the hips and helps minimise movement when the Photo Runner 100 is worn as a beltpack. A removable, adjustable shoulder strap with non-slip padding turns the Photo Runner 100 into a comfortable shoulder bag solution. The Photo Runner 100 is available in Black and Mica.
The new Lowepro Outback series of bags are durable, fast-access beltpacks that can accommodate different sized DSLR kits. Three sizes are available, the Outback 100 (RRP $85), the Outback 200 (RRP $125) and the Outback 300 AW (RRP $209). Each pack comes with two lens/accessory cases secured either side of the main compartment. The larger Outback 200 and 300 AW come with an adjustable shoulder strap. The Outback 300 AW includes a thickly padded waistbelt, no-drop front pocket and built-in All Weather AW Cover to protect gear from the elements. All three models are offered in black.
