History


Lowepro begins, as do all authentic brands, with a story. It begins with Greg Lowe, in his small garage, in a Colorado town near the Rockies.

Mountaineer, photographer, filmmaker and incessant product innovator, Greg developed the internal-frame backpack and the first lightweight and foam-padded nylon cases to protect camera and cinematography equipment from the hazards of climbing.

These ideas and solutions came out of a need to carry valuable gear to new places. Other solutions followed. And today, creating inventive solutions is the hallmark of this brand.

We are proud of the Lowepro heritage and we are committed to maintaining our tradition of providing innovative functionality and remarkable protection.
