Lowpro’s recently announced their new Transit Series of camera bags. This “design-forward” line is comprised of the Transit Sling 250 AW and Backpack 350 AW. Both bags feature fast-access, front to back rotation for rapid camera retrieval and UltraFlex™ fit system for endless organization options. The UltraFlex system is particularly interesting. The best way to understand what it offers is to see it in action.
Both bags look great, are packed with features and are priced nicely. (The Transit Sling 250 AW is under $100 and the Transit Backpack 350 AW is under $120.) Which bag is right for you is going to depend on your specific gear needs and preferred carry-style.
The Transit Backpack 350AW has a lot in common with the DSLR Video Fastpack 250AW I used for CES 2013. It has a slot for carrying and protecting a laptop and, thanks to a quick access side zipper, it provides easy access to you gear without ever having to take the bag off. The bag is ideal for a Pro DSLR setup with room for a Pro DSLR camera with a grip and attached lens of up to 70-200mm. There is also room for 1 or 2 extra lenses, a flash, a compact tripod, a 15″ laptop and accessories.
Just $119.99, the bag weighs under 2.5 pounds when empty. Learn more and order yours here.
Lowepro’s new Transit Sling 250AW is designed to five you flexibility while carrying a variety of gear. Ideal for those who love a sling style bag, the Transit Sling 250AW is especially good for mirrorless setups like my Sony NEX-6 but is large enough to accommodate larger cameras as well.
When used with a smaller camera you can expect it to fit the camera, 2-3 additional lenses, a flash, a compact tripod, a 10″ tablet and accessories. When using the bag with a DSLR you can expect to carry DSLR with attached lens (up to 24-70mm for side access, or 70-200mm when stored vertically), 1 to 2 extra lenses, flash, compact tripod, a 10″ tablet and accessories.
The bag weighs under 2 pounds and is just $99.99. You can learn more and order yours here.
