PETALUMA, Calif., Feb. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Lowepro today announced an update to its award-winning photo and lifestyle backpack with the Photo Hatchback AW II series. Lightweight and flexible, the sporty daypack strikes the perfect balance for adventurers with room for photo gear, personal items and tech devices.

"We created the original Photo Hatchback AW series in 2012 to provide camera enthusiasts with a pack that offered high impact and weather protection, plus incredible versatility with a removable camera compartment," said Tim Grimmer, vice president of brand and product. "Our next-generation design builds on this core feature set with an improved back panel for additional comfort and a reflector loop for extra visibility and utility."

The "hatch" in the Photo Hatchback AW II name refers to the secure, body-side opening that contains a padded and customizable camera box with adjustable dividers that make it easy to change up a camera kit configuration. A storm-flap closure provides an extra moisture barrier. Cinch it closed, pull up on the grab handles and remove the box to turn the Photo Hatchback AW II into a fully functional daypack.

The Photo Hatchback AW II includes a separate CradleFit™ pocket to suspend and protect a tablet; a built-in All Weather AW Cover™ to safeguard gear from the elements; a newly designed back panel with comfortable, moisture-wicking padding at shoulders and lower back for optimal air flow; storage pockets for personal items; exterior water bottle pockets; plus a reflective loop for an extra attachment and visibility.

Photo Hatchback 150 AW II ($89.95 US MSRP) fits a mirrorless or compact DSLR with attached lens, extra lens, action camera, accessories, personal items and an 8-inch tablet. Photo Hatchback 250 AW II ($109.05 US MSRP) fits a DSLR with attached lens, two extra lenses, action camera, accessories, personal items and a 10-inch tablet.
