PETALUMA, Calif., March 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Lowepro, a company with a 50-year reputation in creating protective gear-carrying solutions for adventurers, today announced the newest addition to its growing DroneGuard™ collection: the DroneGuard Backpack 450 AW. Designed by and for quadcopter enthusiasts, pilots, and videographers, this new backpack features a lightweight yet sturdy armored FormShell™ outer construction and modular interiors for trustworthy, unbeatable drone kit protection.
"Our design and development teams are drone enthusiasts who fly, almost daily, and build their own drones," said Tim Grimmer, vice president of brand and product. "In designing a quadcopter backpack, they knew that functionality, comfort and protection from the elements were of high importance. After all, it is from their direct experiences, and those of our expanding user community, that our product solutions for DroneGuard are born."
The DroneGuard Backpack 450 AW ($249.95 US MSRP) features a trademarked DroneGuard interior for custom organization and an optimized workflow. Its softly lined and padded dividers are adjustable to fit a DJI Phantom (including the new Phantom 4), 3DR Solo or similar form factors, plus batteries, props, an RC/transmitter, cables, manuals and tools. The pack includes a dedicated CradleFit™ pocket, constructed to suspend and safeguard a 10-inch tablet, and a molded, FormShell top pocket for easy access to sunglasses, headphones and other essential items. The bag's straps feature SlipLock™ attachment loops to expand capacity by adding pouches and cases for water bottles, memory cards and more.
Built with a Lowepro ActivZone™ harness for breathable and supportive suspension targeted at shoulder blades, lumbar spine and waist, the DroneGuard Backpack 450 AW is comfortable to wear over the long and challenging distances frequently traversed by drone pilots. A built-in All-Weather AW Cover™ may be deployed to protect the pack from extreme environments and elements, including rain, snow, dust and sand, ensuring the valuable gear it contains arrives safely, no matter what the adventure brings.
