Bag expert Lowepro has unveiled its third generation of PhotoSport backpacks – products marking the brand’s move towards sustainability through its green line label. The lightweight, weather-resistant PhotoSport BP 15L AW III and BP 24L AW III are available in two colours, grey and blue, priced at £164.95 and £209.95, respectively. The unladen BP 15L AW III weighs 1.1kg and measures 23x18x44cm; it’s ideal for APS-C format SLR and mirrorless cameras, with extra

lenses kept in the removable GearUp inserts. For full-frame shooters, or APS-C owners with fast aperture lenses, the best option is the BP 24L AW III. It weighs 1.5kg and measures 27x22x50cm. Both bags use the ActivZone harness system for carrying comfort – adjustable shoulder straps and a wide, padded waist-belt provide even weight distribution. A dedicated hydration pocket (not included) and All Weather AW Cover protect from rain, snow and dust.
