Lowepro Adds New Camera Bags to Green Line

NEWS: On 08 November 2022 in order to meet sustainable goals Lowepro camera backpacks across Pro Trekker and Whistler lines have been updated to include recycled materials and are manufactured with greener processes.

Lowepro Adds New Camera Bags to Green Line

Lowepro has also added nine GearUp bag accessories, pouches and wraps to the Green Line range, which also include recycled materials, FSC certified paper tags and 100% recycled polybag packaging. These follow on from the ProTactic BP 450 AW II and ProTactic BP 350 AW II, which were the first backpacks to receive an eco update and featured in our Lowepro ProTactic Backpacks Review.

Discover what this means for your photography gear, what prices the new green bags are and the best photography accessories you can buy, with a completely clear conscience.

What is the Lowepro Green Line conversion?

In pursuit of greener credentials, Lowepro is converting products into their ‘Green Line.’ This reduces resources and emissions, without compromising on the high quality, which contribute to the popularity of their bags and accessories.

The green line score is calculated following the GRI 301-2 standard, measuring the weight of recycled yarn compared to the total yarn and Lowepro measures their solution dye percent by weight using the same method.

What fits

Primary Green Line differences

  1. Fabrics are manufactured with reduced CO2, by using recycled polyester from post-consumer recycled bottles, which saves 50% CO2 emissions.
  2. 100% FSC-certified hangtags and 100% recycled polybags make up new packaging materials. Recycled LDPE is used for polybags which reduces carbon emissions and virgin petroleum.
  3. 80% less water consumption is used by new manufacturing processes using solution dyeing. This involves dyeing fibres before they’re woven into yarn, saving on water consumption, energy usage and chemicals required for the process.

Which are the new Green Line Lowepro Camera Bags

When you see the Green Line logo and green line bar on any Lowepro bags, accessories and packaging, you’ll know the product has been made with these new processes. The November 2022 Green Line update includes the following camera bags:

Key Green Line Lowepro Camera Bag features

Aside from the Green Line update, both bag ranges are essentially the same, which ensures they provide you with best-in-class performance and plenty of features for carrying your equipment.

The Pro Trekker range is made for longer hikes and is carry-on compatible with most airlines despite holding volumes of gear, with features that include:

  • Stash pocket with a zip to hold your phone, ID and other small personal items
  • External QR accessory straps for attaching a tripod or gear to the pack exterior
  • Removable SlipLockTM Tripod Cup which supports the base of a tripod securely
  • Front pocket which holds up to a 13” or 15” laptop and 10” tablet
  • Grab handles on the side and top
  • Gear attachment system allows you to attach extra gear SlipLockTM modular components
  • Organiser gearbox for cables, batteries, filters and more
  • Side pocket zips open for water bottle
  • Stow-able harness and removable waist belt
  • AW Cover™

Whistler backpacks are 4-season technical bags with space for photography gear, video equipment, drones, gimbals and outdoor gear like skis, ropes, a shovel and other functional outdoor essentials.

RLX and RL packs from both ranges offer the unique benefit of converting from a backpack to a roller bag, which is ideal for frequent traveling and carrying lots of heavy content equipment.
