Lowepro’s Terraclime environmentally-friendly camera bags

Lowepro have announced the launch of the Terraclime series of camera bags.

The new family introduces soft tones in light Plum and Grass colours, as well as traditional black. Flexible-form protection combines with a practical style of great appeal to people seeking bags that don’t look like camera bags! Terraclime also achieves new standards in conservation; 95% of the materials used are recycled, making the Terraclime series Lowepro’s greenest camera bag to date.

Addressing the concerns of eco-conscious, fashion-savvy consumers, the Terraclime family of bags provide rugged, soft-sided protection for both compact and DSLR cameras, as well as other digital gear. The bright interior increases the visibility of the bag’s contents in low-light conditions. The exterior fabric, comprised entirely of post-consumer recycled PET bottles, protects against water and abrasion and maintains a comfortable form that stylishly departs from the look of “traditional” camera bags.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each bag will go to Polar Bears International (PBI) to support their efforts to save polar bear habitats from the impact of climate change.

The new Terraclime series is available in four models – the 10, 30 and 50 pouches, and 100 shoulder bag. Each features a single, generously spaced compartment, with additional pockets for memory cards, personal items or accessories. The 100 model is accompanied by a removable Cyclepet wrap that envelopes sensitive gear and LCD screens to provide additional protection. All models can be worn over-the-shoulder, while the 10, 30 and 50 models can also be fastened to a belt loop or purse/bag strap. Such is the design flexibility that some users will choose “bag-within-a-bag” configuration, employing one or more of the pouches, stored within the Terraclime 100 shoulder bag.

Unique in its design, the Terraclime series offers a less conspicuous way to carry digital camera or video gear. Constructed from soft and durable Cyclepet and Hoyu recycled PET fabric, Terraclime is available in three eco-stylish colours: Grass, Plum and Black.

Each model consists of the following dimensions:

  • Terraclime 10: Interior: 9.5W x 4D x 8 H cm; Exterior: 10 x 4.2 x 8.5 cm
  • Terraclime 30: Interior: 12W x 4.2D x 10H cm; Exterior: 12.5 x 4.5 x 10.5 cm
  • Terraclime 50: Interior: 14W x 6.5D x 12H cm; Exterior: 14.5 x 7 x 13 cm
  • Terraclime 100: Interior: 26.5W x 12D x 17H cm; Exterior: 27.5 x 13 x 18 cm
