Lowepro Takes Their Number One Photo Backpack to the Next Level with Revamped Flipside Series

Upgraded Design Features High-Capacity, Dynamic Storage and Body-Side Access

Petaluma, Calif. — July 18, 2017 — Lowepro, a company with a 50-year reputation creating protective gear-carrying solutions, today announced an updated, enhanced design for their popular Flipside Series. The new line features four new backpacks that maintain the same look and feel of the original Flipside bags, while adding new features to cater to laptop/tablet users.

"Today’s customer needs a bag that can accommodate the latest gear including drones, cameras, tablets and laptops," said Michelle Erbs, Marketing Director for Lowepro. "The new Flipside backpacks provide the storage and versatility that these active photographers and content creators need, while giving them easy access to gear and providing the protection that Lowepro’s reputation is built on."

Building on the success of the previous Flipside bags, each bag in the new series features two stretch-mesh side pockets for quick grab items like water bottles or tripods. Customizable compartments and a built-in All Weather AW Cover™ keep the latest cameras and compact drones safe wherever the day takes you. CradleFit™ compartments for laptops and tablets ensure top of the line protection without jostling these valuable devices. Gear attachments on the exterior of each bag allow you to affix extra gear with ease. Lowepro's signature Flipside design offers increased security through body-side points of entry and full access to gear without setting your bag down.
