September 21, 2010: Lowepro has announced new pouches, bags and sleeves in the $20 – $40 price range:
The Lowepro Santiago series consists of pouches that protect a camera with a hard, ribbed shell.
Santiago pouches are sculpted, protective and secure, and designed for ultra-compact, compact and pro compact cameras.
Each of the three models is crafted of a ribbed shell with dense EVA foam padding, ensuring maximum protection from bumps and abrasion. Inside, an elasticised camera keeper strap secures hardware with a snug fit, and soft, brushed tricot lining helps protect the LCD screen and lens from scratches.
An interior slip pocket provides convenient storage for a spare memory card. Additional features include: dual zipper pulls, a low-profile belt loop, and detachable shoulder strap.
The strap secures with D-rings. Santiago 10, 20 and 30 pouches are available in black, arctic blue and grey.
RRPs are $26, $27 and $32.
The Munich 100 features a streamlined and lightweight design and accommodates the most popular models of standard definition, compact camcorders (and many styles of ultra-zoom cameras).
Durable outer materials and a perforated front panel (embedded with impact-resistant PE board) serve to safeguard gear from abrasion and offer a distinctive look. Brushed tricot lining protects an LCD screen and lens from scratches. A removable, padded divider flexes to separate the camcorder from its charger and cord. Interior slash and zippered mesh pockets provide dedicated space for extra memory, battery, ID or credit cards.
Dual zipper-pulls offer easy, yet secure access to gear as the lid opens away from the body. It can be worn on the shoulder or with the strap emoved using a convenient grab handle.
The Munich 100 is available in black at an RRP of $40.
The Munich pouch series ‘takes its design cue from the high-octane style of the automotive world: sleek, slim and sporty.’
Three sizes accommodate the most popular models of ultra-compact to compact cameras, as well as shoot & share video cameras. Durable outer materials and a two-tone perforated front panel (embedded with impact-resistant PE board) serve to safeguard gear from abrasion and offer distinctive looks.
Brushed tricot lining protects an LCD screen and lens from scratches. An interior slash pocket provides dedicated space for extra memory, ID or credit cards. Dual zipper pulls offer easy access and no-drop gussets keep a camera from slipping out.
A Munich pouch can be used on a belt or strap via the integrated belt loop, or worn with the optional shoulder strap.
The Munich series is available in black, black/red and black/silver. RRPs range from $21 to $24.
The Adventura Ultra Zoom 100 shoulder bag delivers a compact and easy-access solution with an adjust-to-fit design.
A padded removable divider adjusts to fit most of the smallest to largest models. The opening features a cut-away shape and is placed low on the front, making it easy to grab a camera by its grip and capture the shot in a moment. Inside, brushed tricot lining protects an LCD screen and lens from scratches and dedicated memory card and battery pockets offer protected storage space.
Also includes a back slash pocket, adjustable shoulder strap and quick-grab handle.
The Adventura Ultra Zoom 100 is available in black at an RRP of $36.
The 5.0 Navi Sleeve offers a ‘minimalist yet highly protective approach to safeguarding a GPS device.’
It’s made of stretchy neoprene, and the sleeve features reinforced inside panels to provide extra protection from impact. It’s lined in soft, brushed tricot to shield the device from dust and scratches, and has a built-in microfibre cloth to clean the touchscreen.
Dual, wrap-around zippers allow access to a GPS device from the top or bottom, and make it easy to re-charge while it’s in the sleeve.
Designed with an ultra-compact profile, the 5.0 Navi Sleeve neatly fits inside a glove compartment or centre console of a vehicle.
It’s available in black at an RRP of $25.
