Lowepro introduces FreeLine BP 350 AW with all-new QuickShelf technology
Camera bag manufacturer Lowepro has launched the FreeLine BP 350 AW, an all new camera backpack for mirrorless and DSLR kits that features the all-new QuickShelf technology.
On the outside, the bag doesn't appear much different than Lowepro's other offerings. The bag is constructed of a 'high-grade Carbonate Coated Nylon 66 exterior' with 'weather proof YKK zippers and robust exterior attachments featuring premium metal clips.' If the weather-resistant fabric isn't enough to protect your gear in harsh weather, Lowepro also includes a matching All Weather AW Cover.
Like all good things, it's what on the inside that counts. This is the first bag from Lowepro to feature its new QuickShelf technology. According to Lowepro, QuickShelf is an 'adaptive interior divider system [that] unfolds into 3-tier shelf or folds flat to remove for open interior space.' In addition to the three tiers, pop-in lateral dividers and an additional gearbox help further divy up the space so you can better organize your camera kit as you see fit. Two easy-access side pockets with additional storage serve as a quick way to get to your gear, even while the backpack is still on your shoulders.
According to Lowepro, the FreeLine BP 350 AW can hold a full-frame DSLR alongside a mounted 70-200mm F2.8 lens, as well as a drone and other lenses or accessories. They don't show any mirrorless-only kits in the photos, but from the looks of it, it could easily hold a pair of full-frame mirrorless cameras and a few lenses.
The FreeLine BP 350 AW also features Lowepro's trademarked CradleFit laptop compartment that can fit up to a 15" laptop and an ActivZone Back Panel for more comfort when carrying a lot of gear.
The FreeLine BP 350 AW is available now for $260.
