PETALUMA, Calif., Feb. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Lowepro has reinvented the way adventure enthusiasts protect, carry and organize their gear for nearly 50 years. Today, the company announced the expansion of its product line with the launch of three new travel collections: HighLine, RidgeLine and StreetLine. These high-quality, dependable bags bring thoughtfully designed, photography-level protection and organization to everyday personal belongings and devices, no matter the environment or the conditions – a promise of Loweprotection™.

"Inventive and protective carrying solutions are the DNA of the Lowepro brand," said Jeff Colton, chief executive officer at DayMen. "For the past 50 years, our bags have been trusted all over the world by the most extreme travelers – photographers – to protect their equipment, and their livelihood. With this expansion into everyday gear protection, we're offering all travelers the same freedom to go where they want to go, and the same trust that their gear will be protected, organized and carried in comfort – no matter where their adventures take them." 

All three travel collections showcase Lowepro's experience with, and commitment to, developing innovative features, utilizing high-quality materials and offering creative yet thoughtful design. Each bag incorporates unique materials and construction to enhance both environmental and impact protection, with dedicated and secure compartments for laptops, tablets, smartphones and additional tech accessories as well as key personal belongings. These bags not only protect gear in any environment, but also help to organize the tools of the modern adventurer.
