Lowepro Introduces New Tactical Inspired Urbex Backpacks for Device Protection

Modern Design Provides Ample Storage and Plentiful Protection For Any Environment

Petaluma, Calif. — September 5, 2017 — Lowepro, a company with a 50-year reputation in creating protective gear-carrying solutions for adventurers, today announced a new backpack engineered for a digital lifestyle, the Urbex, available for purchase in early October. Ideal for business commuters navigating city streets and creative professionals, this new line offers limitless compartments and configurations to customize the way you carry your evolving gear set.

"The needs of those moving through dense urban environments continues to evolve, and so do our bags," said Michelle Erbs, marketing director for Lowepro. "Today more and more of us are content creators, world travelers and adventurers. The Urbex is versatile enough to meet the needs of today’s modern urban professional and serve as the go-to bag for trips across town or across the country."

The Urbex will be available in three sizes: 20L, 24L and 28L. A signature feature of the Urbex is its integrated Gear Box, a small, removable compartment that holds essential peripherals ranging from device accessories, like chargers, cables and Bluetooth® speakers to personal items like headphones and a smartphone. The Gear Box features a unique internal structure to keep items organized and in place during transit. The Gear Box is easily accessible within the Urbex, accessible externally by sliding out of a designated compartment at the bottom of the bag or mounting externally (24L and 28L options only).

Additionally, all three sizes of the Urbex feature a HighRise™ hinged divider for maximum use of internal space, an in-harness Phone Pocket™ for quick access to cell phones, protective storage for a 15" laptop or 10" tablet and an All Weather AW Cover to protect valuable gear from rain, snow, dust and sand.

  • The Urbex BP 20L ($99.95 US MSRP) is compact and simple, offering the perfect solution for carting gear through city streets. This slim, succinct pack can be used in place of a briefcase to carry electronics and documents, as well as lunch, water and jacket. The Urbex BP 20L is available in black, dark grey and dark green.
  • The Urbex BP 24L ($129.95 US MSRP) is structured and streamlined. This bag features a roomy main storage compartment with built-in organization to carry a variety of gear in secure, streamlined style. The Gear Box includes the option to mount externally on the lower inset panel to give users even more room inside the Urbex. The 24L is also available in black, dark grey and dark green.
  • The Urbex BP 28L ($149.95 US MSRP) is the largest pack in the series, providing expandable capacity for an extra 4L of clothes, shoes, personal items or additional gear. The panel zips back down to a sleek, narrow format when the extra space is not needed. This Urbex also provides the option to externally mount the Gear Box, for additional storage space. The Urbex 28L Plus is available in black.
