Lowepro Brings Active Pros New Backpack: Photo Sport Pro 30L

Lowepro has been quiet for a few months, but recently announced their new Photo Sport Pro 30L AW bag, inspired by the original Photo Sport Pro AW series. The latest back-packin' pal is set to offer the active, outdoor photographer a lightweight, comfortable, supportive and flexible daypack that fits pro-sized gear plus lots of extras.

The Photo Sport 30L AW is constructed of lightweight, strong and high-performing 210D triple-ripstop nylon with PU coating for improved durability. A trampoline-style, air-flow suspension system with breathable mesh offers the outdoor photographer a comfortable carry of a heavy load.



In this pack, Lowepro wanted to focus on capacity and flexibility. A removable inner bag called an "Ultra-Cinch Camera Chamber" can be quickly accessed from the side (indicative of many popular Lowepro bags) and fits up to a Pro DSLR with grip with an attached telephoto zoom lens. The chamber may be tightened for a secure, bounce-free fit while wearing and removed to transform the Photo Sport Pro 30L AW into a high capacity and fully functional daypack. Lowepro also designed the bag with multiple compartments to make it easy to store and access the plethora of personal gear you are bound to be taking with you. This includes:

  • A big stow pocket in the front;
  • A zippered pocket on the top; two zippered stash pockets on the waistbelt;
  • And an uppper, toploading compartment with ample room for jackets, hats, lunch, snacks, maps and other essentials.




It also comes with Lowepro's popular all-weather cover, which is pretty resistant to water, rain, snow, sleet, sand and other watery/cold/gritty combinations that you might come across on your adventures.

The 30L will retail for about $200 and is available now at Lowepro.com and B&H.

Are they out of their minds? $200 for a plastic bag. They can keep it!!

Photo gear is over priced, even for the pros.

I haven't used Lowepro gear for two years and I've been happy with that choice. I've moved to ThinkTank, you get more bang for your money, you can fit more stuff in them than you can in the Lowepro bags. The slot system in ThinkTank is genious compared to the three long lines in Lowepro. Also, the quality is superb.

Funny thing about Lowepro bags, if you don't want to carry 600mm f4 with body attached, the amount of gear that you can carry in the Lowepro Pro Trekker 600AW is same than the ThinkTank Airport Acceleration v2.0 which isn't the biggest backbag from them. And Airport Acceleration can be fitted inside the Lowepro bag. That's all about interior organisation.

And where do all my lenses go? I appreciate the innovation. But I think I still prefer my Burton Zoom 28L.
