WPPI, Las Vegas and Petaluma, Calif. – March 2, 2015 – Lowepro, the leading maker of photography carrying solutions, today announced the Echelon series, the company’s first high-end collection of photography bags designed for the fashionable, discerning professional who has perfected his or her craft.

“We have designed bags for all types of image makers for the last 48 years. With the Echelon series, we challenged our design team to dream up the ultimate expression of crafted luxury and protection,” said Tim Grimmer, vice president of brand and product at Lowepro. “Our team worked directly with professional photographers, including Loweprofessional Blair Bunting, to create this collection. Blair’s professional experience, appreciation for well-designed aesthetics and overall lifestyle aligned perfectly with the series, offering an invaluable resource for input and feedback throughout the design process.”
Each piece of fine luggage from the Echelon series is wrapped in 840 denier black nylon fabric and comes with precision-engineered YKK RC-Fuse locking zippers and TSA-approved locks, plus a removable, black All Weather AW Cover™ for protection from the elements. The bags feature accessory pockets and removable organization panels trusted to keep valuables and essential items organized and secure.
The Echelon Roller’s high-impact-resistant molded interior construction protects valuable gear from shock and vibration. Its special-edition MaxFit System™ and highly engineered trolley with encased wheel build maximize volume, fitting up to two professional DSLRs, six to eight lenses (up to 300mm), flash and lighting gear, a 15-inch laptop and additional accessories.
Also featuring the MaxFit System, the Echelon Attaché can hold a professional DSLR, two to three lenses (up to 70-200 f/2.8), flash, a 13-inch laptop and necessary accessories.
