How It’s Made

  • Lowepro Green Line label shows the percentage of recycled fabrics reached through use of fully recycled fabrics and recycled/virgin yarn blends were used to make the bag-this bag is made with 85% recycled materials
  • Water-resistant and wear-resistant 420D nylon shell is lightweight and strong
  • Exterior Carbonate coating makes it easy to wash dirt, dust, and mud off without leaving a residue
  • Bottom panel is made of 420D diamond ripstop to add better abrasion resistance
  • Eleven compression straps help to stabilize the load inside the bag, squeezing the load closer to the internal frame to draw the weight closer to the body for better weight transfer and balance
  • Front and back gear access allows you to install the GearUp Pro XL and decide on how you want to access your camera gear
  • Top access to main storage compartment with a drawstring closure and removeable top flap to give a little extra room when you need to stuff just a little more gear into the pack
  • All-Weather rain cover offers maximum protection and is colored bright orange to signal in case of emergency

How You Wear It

  • ActivLift harness system can be adjusted for a custom fit with load-lifter straps, adjustable torso length and yoke angle—the torso length has an adjustment range from 14″ to 19″
  • Internal aluminum frame increases stability and comfort
  • Fully adjustable padded backpack straps with an ergonomic curve for maximum comfort
  • Strap length is sized for small to medium torsos with a curve towards the end for a better fit and comfort—Ideal fit for people measuring 5′ 1″ to 5′ 10″ tall
  • Shoulder straps are made with a foam flexing system that are zoned—the top half of the strap has a more supportive foam geometry while the lower half the foam is more flexible to accommodate different shapes
  • Sternum strap with quick-release buckle adds stability—strap can be moved up and down on the backpack straps for proper placement based on torso length
  • Wide padded waist belt is adjustable from 28″ to 48″ and helps to transfer load to your hips, eliminates swaying and swinging during strenuous activity, like climbing over rocks, and keeps the pack’s weight close to your center of gravity for greater stability and safety
  • Waist belt is designed to pivot separately from, yet supportive, of the pack so that your hips and shoulders can move more freely when you’re going uphill or crossing uneven terrain
  • Waist belt pads can be adjusted along its length for proper placement on critical points to pad the load
