Sustainable Green Line design

With a 63% total green line score from 26% solution-dyed, 37% recycled fabrics, the ProTactic BP 450 AW II moves towards Lowepro’s long-term path of protecting the natural world, which the photography community frame and cherish.
The exceptionally adaptive second generation high-performance ProTactic BP 450 AW expands on existing Lowepro backpack rugged versatility and armoured protection, with a more adaptive interior, multiple access points, modular exterior attachment capabilities and convertible utility belt.

Technologies used for the bag include Dope dyeing (also called solution or spun dyeing), which is a production technique to colour synthetic fibres such as acrylic, nylon and polyester. In dope dyeing, pigments are added to the liquid polymer solution before synthetic fibres are extruded. Instead of the traditional wet yarn dyeing, in which the yarn is knitted or weaved first into a fabric, which is then dyed as a whole, dope dyed yarn is the opposite.

The traditional wet processing in the textile industry, has caused a significant impact on the environment and human health. Large amounts of chemicals and dyes are used in the wet processing, which leads to the larger water usage.

Using dope dyed fabrics reduces:

  • Greenhouse gas emissions
  • Water used (~80% less overall)
  • Chemicals as the process becomes shorter and less wastewater is generated

You can also fit multiple lenses and accessories inside the bag, along with numerous optional external accessories. These can be attached onto loops and tabs throughout the bag, allowing you to add and remove exterior bags and pouches as required for your photo trips.

With excellent padding, a removable waist strap, modular design and versatile organisation, this is one of the most popular camera backpacks, which just got even better thanks to Lowepro’s commitment to sustainability.
