Modularity – giving you all the options

The big advantage of the Lowepro ProTactic range is its modular utility. Lowepro knows that you need a carrying solution that’s flexible, strong, and resilient, but is also adaptable. So that’s exactly what they’ve created. The SlipLock™ loop system and tabs let you add the pouches and cases from the ProTactic range to your ProTactic Backpacks, Messengers, Toploaders and waistbelts, to carry even more equipment. Simply attach on one of Lowepro’s  lens cases, utility and smartphone pouches, or even a water bottle holder, and you’re ready to go.

Lowepro took modularity to the next level in the new ProTactic BP 300 AW II backpack and MG 160 AW II messenger, adding the renowned removable QuickShelf™ divider system. Simply remove the entire divider to convert your photographic carrying solution into a handy everyday laptop backpack or messenger with larger storage space.

Lowepro’s ProTactic modular system now includes 2 professional toploaders. ProTactic TLZ 70 AW and TLZ 75 AW are fully compatible with Lowepro ProTactic series BP 350 AW II and BP 450 AW II backpacks’ belts. They can also be used as stand-alone solutions and can be worn in multiple ways: in holster-style, with a chest harness and with the provided waist belt. The ProTactic TLZ 70 AW expands to hold up to 24-70mm f/2.8, even with lens hood and portrait grip; and TLZ 75 AW expands to hold up to 70-200mm f/2.8 even with lens hood and portrait grip.

Accessibility and comfort

That perfect shot may be gone in an instant, so another thing that’s mission-critical when it comes to equipment bags is accessibility. The ProTactic range makes sure everything is right there when you need it: the 4-point access system which became popular in the ProTactic BP 350 AW II and BP 450 AW II, was replicated as the 3-point access system in the new ProTactic BP 300 AW II, for easily reaching your photographic gear from the double side access, and accessing your personal belongings and laptop from the top.

Comfort is a priority for full-time photographers. That’s why Lowepro have included The ActivZone™ system in the new ProTactic BP 300 AW II and MG 160 AW II, for delivering targeted support at the shoulder blades, lumbar and waist for comfort on the move, no matter how much you load up your bag. A structured back panel allows the air to circulate for all-day comfort and ventilation, even in hot conditions.
For an even enhanced comfort and stability, the new ProTactic BP 300 AW II features a chest strap, and the new ProTactic MG 160 AW II features an easily adjustable shoulder strap for wearing your bag in 3 ways: high on the shoulder for agile movement, crossbody with a stabilizer strap, great also if you’re riding a bike, or low on the hip for easy lens swapping.

The full ProTactic range presents a comprehensive collection of backpacks, messengers, top loaders and modular accessories meeting the needs of all advanced and professional photographers, who seek 100% photographic bags and also everyday carrying solutions for laptop and personal belongings. Made from rugged, tough materials and finished to an exceptionally high standard, ProTactic is your camera bag.
