PRESS RELEASE: Lowepro unveils a carrying solution that combines the agility of a beltpack with the utility of a shoulder bag in a functional design that works equally well for the enthusiast or pro photographer.
(Sebastopol, CA, November 2, 2009) – Lowepro, a product design company that builds protective gear for photography equipment and portable electronics, announces the launch of the Photo Runner 100. It's lightweight, slim-profile design offers freedom of movement and a full set of practical features.
"We designed the Photo Runner 100 to work in multiple scenarios," said Tim Grimmer, Lowepro product manager. "It's an ideal everyday bag for the enthusiast, as well as a compact solution for the active photographer using it as an on-the-fly lens/accessory bag at an event or on a day trip," he added.
The Photo Runner 100 features a fast-access, side-opening lid that opens wide, allowing the user to work right out of the roomy main compartment with ease. Adjustable, protective and padded dividers offer multiple ways to load gear into the Photo Runner 100—vertically with a DSLR with attached standard zoom lens and an additional lens or accessory—or, horizontally with a DSLR with attached lens up to 80-200mm f/2.8.
When worn as a beltpack, the Photo Runner 100 offers a lean, agile solution to maneuvering in a large crowd or at a fast-paced event. Compression straps on the waistbelt keep the weight of the camera gear on the hips and minimize movement.

To convert the beltpack to a shoulder bag, tuck away the waistbelt, attach the shoulder strap and adjust for a comfortable fit across the body or on the shoulder. A non-slip patch on the padded shoulder strap keeps it from slipping while in motion.
The design of the Photo Runner 100 responds to a busy shooter's needs with convenient, well-constructed features that are right at hand: two memory card pockets are built into the inside lid; two gusseted front pockets (one with a "quiet" cord closure) provide quick-access to anything from cell phones, MP3 players and pens to filters, lens caps and larger accessories; compression straps at the bottom secure a compact tripod, monopod or light jacket to the bag; and SlipLock™ attachment loops expand the carrying capacity by adding compatible pouches and cases to the outside.
Additional features of the Photo Runner 100 include: oversized D-rings and snaphooks for easy connections; a quick-grab handle for an extra carrying option; vertical foam walls to provide an effective barrier against bumps, abrasion and moisture; and an OverLap Zipper™ to protect gear from dust, sand and moisture.
The Photo Runner 100 comes in Black and Mica.
All colors & sizes may not be available in all countries. Check with your local distributor for availability.
