Posted on Aug 13, 2012 in Announcements, News: Bags, Straps & Pouches, Lowepro

Lowepro unveils a flexible camera daypack for active and social lifestyles: The Photo Hatchback AW series.

Modern and lightweight, it offers a beginning photographer or casual enthusiast many carrying options for all-day adventures. It feature sleek profiles, compact designs and a stylish, graphic treatment.

"Our Photo Hatchback AW is inspired by fun and social activities and provides multi-functional carrying options and secure gear access for consumers who like to get outside with their DSLR or compact systems cameras, plus a tablet and personal gear," said Tim Grimmer, Lowepro director of marketing and product management.

Body-side "hatch" access

The "hatch" in the name refers to the body-side opening that contains a padded and customizable camera box with adjustable dividers that make it easy to change up a camera kit configuration. A storm-flap closure provides an extra moisture barrier. Cinch it closed, pull up on the grab handles and remove the box to turn the Photo Hatchback AW into a fully functional daypack.

The roomy upper compartment offers 22 or 16 liters of volume for smartphones, keys, wallets, a light jacket, snack and other creature comforts.
