The ProTactic BP 350 AW II backpack has been designed to transport professional camera gear around even in the most rugged terrains, with a whole bunch of practical features to protect and organise your valuables.

The 350AW II comes with the Lowepro Backpack, flexible padded dividers, utility pouch, water bottle holder, tripod cup, adjustable quick straps and rain cover to make sure you are ready for anything. This bag has a highly adaptive interior thanks to the adjustable padded dividers, multi access points and convertible utility belt. It has a dedicated laptop compartment suitable for up to a size 13” laptop. This compact bag measures up at 11.81 x 7.09 x 18.5" exterior with a 10.24 x 4.92 x 15.75" interior, giving you 15.89L and weighing just 4.89lb in total. Don’t let the size deceive you, however, as the 350AW II has a healthy gear profile of one or two DSLRs, one with 24-70mm f/2.8 lens attached, up to eight lenses and a whole load of accessories including flash units, tripod/monopod and your laptop.

You can quickly access your gear through any of the four opening points which are located on the top, both sides and on the back, meaning you’ll never miss a photo opportunity. The body is made with a composite-shell construction and uses FormShell technology on the top opening for protection against impact. This also helps when opening the bag, as the ridged structure lifts away cleanly in one piece. The ActiveZone has been created to provide support around the shoulder blades, back and waist and has been structured in a way that allows air to pass through for ventilation. The raincoat hugs the back, protecting all your stuff from rain, snow, dust and sand, and can be stored away when it’s not needed, whilst the system of compatible loops and tabs make a convenient way of adding pouches and cases to store along water bottles, memory cards and more.

 The ProTactic BP 350AW II from Lowepro is a great allrounder: it’s an ultra-versatile bag that will keep your gear safe from bad weather and external knocks, plus you can easily organise all your accessories and access the camera quickly. RRP £259.95
