August 4, 2011: The Lowepro Compact Courier shoulder bag series (70 and 80 models) is modern, lightweight and flexible, and specifically designed for compact camera systems with interchangeable lenses, such as the Sony NEX series.
Features on both Compact Courier 70 and 80 models include padded interiors to help protect cameras from impact; brushed tricot lining to safeguard from dust and scratches; an easy access memory card pocket; microfibre lens and screen cleaning cloth; and extra-wide opening, and detachable and adjustable shoulder strap and belt loop for comfort and carrying convenience
The Compact Courier 70 is the smaller of the two, designed to fit most compact system cameras with zoom lens attached (Sony NEX series, Olympus PEN Series, Panasonic Lumix GF series, Samsung NX 100, etc). An lens pouch to accommodate a pancake prime lens is included.
The Compact Courier 80 can be worn over the shoulder or across the body and offers a ‘2-bags-in-1’ solution for the Sony NEX series. It accommodates a camera with 18-55mm attached lens, plus a pancake 16mm lens.
In addition, an inner Mini Quick Case – which takes a camera with pancake lens – can be detached from the shoulder bag. A built-in leash tethers to the camera strap, securing the Mini Quick Case to the camera while wearing and shooting.
Both Lowepro Compact Courier bags are available in grey with blue piping and black with red piping. The Compact Courier 70 has an RRP of $48, while the larger Compact Courier 80 is just $52. In store now.
