Lowepro’s Trekker series of camera bags have long been a staple for outdoor photographers who need to comfortably carry larger loads into the field. Check out these new updates to the Pro Trekker backpacks.
Lowepro has released three updated Pro Trekker travel-ready backpacks with the BP 350 AW II, BP 450 AW II, and BP 550 AW II. There’s also now an updated roller backpack, the RLX 450 AW II, that can convert from shoulder strap carry to rolling bag with a telescoping handle.
The emphasis with this new collection is that they are all carry-on compliant while improving the materials and design. The BP 350 II and BP 450 II can stow away the shoulder straps behind the backpack’s rear panel, and the BP 550 II features a two-piece design that can be split apart to be carried on an airline. Prices for the new series range from $249.95 to $399.95.
Unfortunately with the new mission of carry-on for all, it appears that Lowepro is neglecting their long lens customers and are not releasing an updated Pro Trekker 650 AW at this time. The options are limited out there for photographers wanting to load 600mm or 800mm lenses in a quality camera bag, and it would be great to see Lowepro continue filling this role in the Pro Trekker series.
The Lowepro Pro Trekker AW II series is available now.
