Just Arrived: Lowepro Transit AW Series

Posted on Jul 19, 2013 in Announcements, News: Bags, Straps & Pouches, Lowepro


Lowepro, a product design company that builds protective gear for photography, video and portable electronic devices, launches its newest, DSLR camera bag – a multi-device carrying solution with an innovative UltraFlex™ fit system for city and travel: the Transit AW series.



“We incorporated the best access and protective features of our top-selling, urban DSLR backpack and DSLR sling designs - then added a versatile UltraFlex™ fit system to give photographers choices on how they pack and organize a wide variety of camera and personal gear,” said Tim Grimmer, worldwide director of product management and design. “The result is a lightweight and ergonomic design that lets you configure your set-up in multiple ways and helps get you to your destinations with ease.


The Transit AW series is built for speed, multiple devices and flexibility – the essential features shooters need to get the perfect shots and easily move from location to location.

The fast-opening side access allows a photographer to grab a camera via the zippered compartment when the pack or sling is rotated from back to front.
A multi-device interior offers dedicated and protective spaces for camera with attached lens, extra lenses, a flash and accessories, plus a separate and padded compartment for a laptop (in the backpack) or tablet (in the sling).

Lowepro’s innovative UltraFlex™ fit system provides versatile ways to fit, organize and protect camera and personal gear via the central flex divider, lens cradle and smaller dividers – all padded and constructed with hook/loop fasteners for easy adjustments. The lens cradle may be used to support a long lens when it’s placed vertically in the main compartment.

Additional features include: a built-in All Weather AW Cover™ to protect gear from the elements; a Hideaway Tripod Mount™ to secure a compact tripod or monopod to the side of the pack or sling; ergonomic straps to help evenly distribute weight for a comfortable carry; and a stow-away, stabilizing waist strap to offer extra security when on the move.

The Transit Backpack 350 AW fits a Pro DSLR with attached lens (up to 70-200mm for side access, or 300mm when stored vertically); 1-2 extra lenses; flash and accessories; compact tripod; and a 15" laptop.

The Transit Sling 250 AW fits a DSLR with attached lens (up to 24-700mm for side access, or 70-200mm when stored vertically) OR a mirrorless/CSC kit; 1-2 extra lenses; flash and accessories; compact tripod; and a 10" tablet.
