The latest generation of the Fastpack series improves protection levels while providing great internal carrying ‘zones’ – to accommodate all those modern travel essentials and accessories. 

The Fastpack II series includes two new packs for the DSLR photographer: the Fastpack 150 AW II and the Fastpack 250 AW II. Each pack features a padded easy-access compartment for a DSLR camera with lens. New additions to this generation include an all-weather protective cover to keep gear safe no matter the weather or destination, and the ability to secure the pack to rolling trolleys for easy airport manoeuvring. 

The Fastpack 150 AW II is designed to hold up to an 11-inch laptop in a built in padded sleeve, and one to two extra lenses or flashes in the camera section of the backpack. 

The larger Fastpack 250 AW II can hold a 15-inch laptop, plus up to three additional lenses or flashes. Both packs come complete with a padded, removable waistbelt for extra comfort – which can be stowed during travel. 

Additional features of the Fastpack II series include a device ‘zone’ with CradleFitTM tablet protection, and an open ‘zone’ for additional equipment, including a tall, reinforced mesh side pocket that, along with a synch trap, can be used to secure a tripod. Each pack can safely hold smartphones, headphones, keys, accessories and a hard drive in addition to a camera, laptop and tablet.

lowepro echelon series

March 2, 2015  Lowepro, the leading maker of photography carrying solutions, today announced the Echelon series, the company's first high-end collection of photography bags designed for the fashionable, discerning professional who has perfected his or her craft. The limited edition, three-piece Echelon series includes a roller, attache and laptop brief with high-end features such as custom-cast metal hardware and saddle-stitched, premium leather handles, expressing refined sensibility. The collection is now available exclusively online for purchase at http://www.lowepro.com inthe United States.

"We have designed bags for all types of image makers for the last 48 years. With the Echelon series, we challenged our design team to dream up the ultimate expression of crafted luxury and protection," said Tim Grimmer, vice president of brand and product at Lowepro. "Our team worked directly with professional photographers, including Loweprofessional Blair Bunting, to create this collection. Blair's professional experience, appreciation for well-designed aesthetics and overall lifestyle aligned perfectly with the series, offering an invaluable resource for input and feedback throughout the design process."

Each piece of fine luggage from the Echelon series is wrapped in 840 denier black nylon fabric and comes with precision-engineered YKK RC-Fuse locking zippers and TSA-approved locks, plus a removable, black All Weather AW Cover™ for protection from the elements. The bags feature accessory pockets and removable organization panels trusted to keep valuables and essential items organized and secure.

The Echelon Roller's high-impact-resistant molded interior construction protects valuable gear from shock and vibration. Its special-edition MaxFit System™ and highly engineered trolley with encased wheel build maximize volume, fitting up to two professional DSLRs, six to eight lenses (up to 300mm), flash and lighting gear, a 15-inch laptop and additional accessories.

Also featuring the MaxFit System, the Echelon Attache can hold a professional DSLR, two to three lenses (up to 70-200 f/2.8), flash, a 13-inch laptop and necessary accessories. The attache opens wide, similar to a classic doctor's satchel, offering smooth and swift access to equipment. It includes a discreet trolley pass-through, enabling the bag to be secured atop a roller bag for convenience while traveling.

The Echelon Brief offers a molded interior construction for protection as well as a trolley pass-through for travel ease. Able to fit a 15-inch laptop, pen tablet, portable hard drives and other business essentials, the brief also includes a memory card holder to keep a reader within easy reach.
