Lowepro Announces: Hardside, ProTactic and updated Trekker Camera Bags

During Photokina 2014, camera bag manufacturer Lowepro announced several new products from the new Hardside series and ProTactic series as well as the updated Trekker series – here is a first preview.

Above you can see a video into of the updated Trekker big bags for pro photographers with a LOT of equipment. The series is 20 years old and has the biggest capacity in the Lowepro line. There are quite a few changes in this updated beg including the ActivLift System harness which is purposefully designed to mimic the natural “S” curve of the back, and transfer more weight from waist to the hips. The video shows a few of the many other features of the bag.
