Sports and ?adventure? photographers are the target market for a new line-up of backpacks from Lowepro called Vertex.

Priced from £125 there are three bags in the range ? the 100, 200 and 300.

A Lowepro spokesman claimed: ?A key feature of the Vertex series is their extra depth? it can carry either one or two pro digital SLRs, a large 35mm or medium format system and between three and eight 8 lenses (up to 400mm f/2).’

The backpacks also feature two outer pockets to carry items such as memory cards and filters, and a pocket designed to carry 14in and 17in-size laptops, for example.

Lowepro ? which is 40 this year – can be contacted on 0870 420 4211.
