During the past week camera bag manufacturer Lowepro introduced a new high end luxury camera bag series called Echelon. Jaron Schneider from Resource Magazine had a chance to try out the new bags and come back with some initial impressions.
Although other manufacturers such as Manfrotto for example have been creating luxury camera bags for a few years now, this is Lowepro’s first attempt at this market segment (which in our view isn’t that big actually). The Echelon series has 3 members all with custom-cast metal hardware, stitched leather handles, 840 denier black nylon fabric, , TSA approved locks and a removable all weather cover for when weather isn’t your friend.
