The Powder 500 AW backpack from Lowepro is the ultimate mix of ski and snowboard backpack and camera carriage for those who will take on the harshest conditions to get that perfect shot.
Lowepro is a company who pride themselves on creating camera packs which are multi-functional and which break the mould of what a backpack can do. The Powder 500 is an excellent example of this and is designed for backcountry photographers who want to go anywhere shoot anything.
This incredibly versatile pack utilises a high tear-strength lightweight nylon, that's highly durable and weather protective, so no matter how bad the conditions or how tough the terrain, it'll keep your gear safe and won't hold you down. Lowepro's ActivZone suspension system, consisting of an ergonomically designed back panel with strategically placed pads which maximise comfort and airflow, along with large load bearing hip fins, ergonomically supports and spreads the weight of the pack to ensure comfort even on long journeys.
The generously sized 55-litre backpack contains a dedicated, self-contained camera compartment which will carry a full pro-level DSLR camera with attached grip as well as 2-4 lenses. The camera box is padded throughout and includes multiple removable dividers which can be customised to your camera set-up and ensures that your gear is kept snug and safe. A body side opening to the camera box uses the wearer's own body to ensure that your most valuable camera equipment is protected whenever you're wearing it and is quick and easy to access when you take it off.
Even with a fully loaded camera box, over 50 percent of the space in this versatile pack is free for other equipment and there's plenty of storage for all the crucial gear you need on alpine adventures. A large external pocket at the front is the perfect size for backcountry essentials such as skins, probes and shovels, while robust external straps will carry a range of items from skis and snowboards, to ice aces and photography tripods. For those more demanding expeditions or the times when you just want to enjoy the journey, the entire camera box can be removed completely to make extra room for other equipment.
While it's designed with the mountains in mind, The Powder provides outstanding protection in any environment. The All Weather AW Cover™ lives up to its name, unpacking from a bottom pocket to cover the entire pack in a protective weatherproof layer that will keep your equipment safe from wind, rain, snow, sand and dust. When you're not braving the wilds, this go-anywhere-do-anything pack is well suited to the urban jungle, featuring a padded slat pocket for your laptop and a dedicated hydration pocket at the side. With such a wide range of excellent features, it's lightweight durability and a huge range of carriage options, the Powder 500 All-Weather photography and snow sports backpack truly is ready to take on every adventure and any conditions.
