Lowepro, the leading maker of photography carrying solutions, today unveiled the next generation of its trusted, travel-focused camera and laptop backpacks: the Fastpack II series.

These versatile packs are designed to provide the modern traveller with quick, easy access to their camera, laptop and other devices while maximising storage space and protection for travel.

‘Our trusted Fastpack series is designed to give avid travellers easy access to their laptops and camera gear – in addition to the growing number of other devices they want available on the road,’ said Loraine Morgan, senior marketing manager at Lowepro UK.

‘Photography enthusiasts trust Fastpack’s easy-access compartments and well-designed organisation to fulfil all their needs from business trips to events, personal excursions, day trips or extended travel.’

The latest generation of the Fastpack series improves protection levels while providing great internal carrying ‘zones’ – to accommodate all those modern travel essentials and accessories.

The Fastpack II series includes two new packs for the DSLR photographer: the Fastpack 150 AW II and the Fastpack 250 AW II. Each pack features a padded easy-access compartment for a DSLR camera with lens. New additions to this generation include an all-weather protective cover to keep gear safe no matter the weather or destination, and the ability to secure the pack to rolling trolleys for easy airport manoeuvring.

• The Fastpack 150 AW II is designed to hold up to an 11in laptop in a built-in padded sleeve, and one to two extra lenses or flashes in the camera section of the backpack
• The larger Fastpack 250 AW II can hold a 15in laptop, plus up to three additional lenses or flashes

Both packs come complete with a padded, removable waistbelt for extra comfort – which can be stowed during travel.

Additional features of the Fastpack II series include a device ‘zone’ with CradleFit tablet protection, and an open ‘zone’ for additional equipment, including a tall, reinforced mesh side pocket that, along with a sync trap, can be used to secure a tripod. Each pack can safely hold smartphones, headphones, keys, accessories and a hard drive in addition to a camera, laptop and tablet.
