Urban Photo Sling series - (Petaluma, CA, May 1, 2012)
Lowepro, a product design company that builds protective gear for photography, video and portable electronic devices, unveils its new Urban Photo Sling series. Inspired by the daily routines of street shooters, photo enthusiasts—even bloggers—these modern and compact slings offer versatile and comfortable carrying solutions.
"Our design and product teams imagined a day in the life of today's urban shooter as we created these bags," said Tim Grimmer, Lowepro director of marketing and product management. "Of primary importance was the ability to access the key gear he or she carries—a DSLR or CSC kit, plus a tablet. Our aim was to make it easy to grab and share those images as they go about their day," he added.
The Urban Photo Sling series features a profile that lends itself to three comfortable and secure wearing options: at the front, back or to the side. The design was specially constructed to make it easy to shift positions while on the move.
Thoughtful storage details are featured throughout the design. A dedicated, padded compartment provides protective space for an iPad® or other tablet-style computer. A zippered front accessory pocket offers easy access to personal items. And side pockets provide grab-and-go access to a lens cap, filter, metro ticket or other small items.
Two loading options add to the versatility of the sling. A photographer can load it from the top for easy access or with the front panel fully open for maximum organization. The interior features a padded and adjustable divider system for custom organization of gear.
Additional features include: an interior keeper strap to safeguard lenses and accessories; a tuckaway waistbelt for stability, comfort and security; a contoured, mesh-covered top flap that serves as a moisture barrier; plus a built-in pocket to keep spare memory within easy reach.
The Urban Photo Sling 250 fits up to a Pro DSLR without grip, with an attached 70-200mm lens; 2 extra lenses or a flash and 1 lens; a tablet; the side pocket fits a water bottle or small tripod; accessories and personal items. The Urban Photo Sling 150 fits a DSLR with attached 55-200mm lens; 2 extra lenses or a flash and 1 lens; a tablet; accessories and personal items, OR, a CSC with attached kit lens; 3 extra lenses or a flash and 2 lenses; a tablet, accessories and personal items.
