Lowepro gift guide

 Gift Guide  

Need help choosing the right Lowepro bag for the photographer in your life this holiday season? Look no further! We have some great ideas for gifts in every price range. 

Pack a large Ziplock for cold weather photography. When shooting outside, put your camera in the plastic bag before you come back indoors. Keep it in there until the camera warms up completely. By doing so, the condensation collects on the bag and not your gear.

-Derrick Story, Lowepro Photography Evangelist  

Our trek started in a small Colorado garage over 40 years ago. Since then, we've been traveling the world on the backs and shoulders of the best photographers on the planet. We've learned. We've innovated. We've become a leader.


We're looking forward to sharing this journey with you.
