Lowepro have released the Inverse AW series of belt packs, designed for the digital photographer on the go.
The Inverse can be utilised in two distinct carrying modes: worn around the waist by snapping on the contoured mesh lumbar belt or carried as a shoulder bag with the detachable 360Ã‹Å¡ swivel padded shoulder harness. The quick-access lid opens 180 degrees, making loading and retrieving gear from the padded and customisable main compartment simple. In addition to the water-resistant exterior materials, the Inverse AW also features a built in Lowepro All Weather Cover to protect the contents from rain, snow and dust. Available in two sizes, the Inverse 100 AW and 200 AW have the carrying capacity for a pro-style digital SLR with attached lens as well as extra lenses, flash units and accessories.
The Inverse series offers photographers exceptional comfort with a breathable back-panel and weight-distributing carrying options. Specialised compartments hold plenty of accessories. When combined with the adjustable compression pulls on the lumbar belt, Inverse enables photographers of any body-type to load up on extras. The sturdy, yet comfortable, design of the belt pack enables users to shoot their pictures easily, while wearing the pack. Locking straps located on the underside of the belt pack are perfectly suited to slipping in a tripod or rolled-up spray-jacket. The front compression system, with a zippered pocket and adjustable compression pulls, provides easy access to cables, adaptors, small accessories and personal items while allowing the pack to be customised to fit any body type. Under the quick access top, Inverse features a Tricot-lined lid to protect LCD screens from abrasion, as well as memory card pockets to ensure that additional media cards are right where they are expected to be.
Additional features of the Inverse AW series include mesh side pockets to secure a water bottle or other personal items, silent pull zippers to reduce noise, and SlipLock attachment loops to further customise and extend the capabilities of the belt pack as needed.
Inverse AW is available in black, Arctic Blue, and Leaf Green.
