Lightweight Design Streamlines Travel While Maximizing and Protecting Gear
Petaluma, Calif. — September 20, 2016 — Lowepro, the trusted leader in gear protection for 50 years, today announced the PhotoStream RL 150, a new lightweight and streamlined airline carry-on roller designed for enthusiast and professional photographers and videographers.
The travel-enabled PhotoStream RL 150 offers peace of mind regardless of your aircraft with 7.5-inch depth. At only eight pounds, it allows you to maximize the gear you bring without exceeding weight restrictions. The bag's vibration-absorbing, urethane-case wheels with ABEC-5 rated bearings ensure a smooth glide and long-lasting durability. Comfort-padded top and side handles and a sturdy three-stage aluminum trolley with center button control provide convenient carry options.
"Without question, a reliable carry-on bag is a necessity when flying with photo and video gear," said Tim Grimmer, vice president of brand and product. "But packing a bag can quickly become a balancing act. We designed the PhotoStream RL 150 to be the ultimate carry-on roller – photographers and videographers can bring everything they need for a shoot, move quickly and easily when traveling, and still meet airlines' regulations."
Key innovative features of the PhotoStream RL 150 include a FormShell™ molded EVA front panel, similar to that of the ProTactic series, that provides armored device protection while preventing the bag from getting caught in overhead bins. The roller also offers a hinged CradleFit™ front panel that suspends and protects your laptop, giving you easy access to your device without opening the entire bag.
Its flexible interior can hold 1-2 pro DSLRs, one with up to a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens attached; up to eight lenses and speedlights; a 15-inch laptop; a small to medium sized tripod; and additional accessories.
