Lowepro has announced the latest generation of its urban daypack series, Slingshot Edge. The redesigned series caters to the urban photographer by combining protective compartments and easy access with added storage for tablets, slim design and a stylish exterior. Lowepro is distributed in Canada by DayMen.

“Ease of use is paramount for photographers on the move,” said Tim Grimmer, vice president of brand and product at Lowepro. “There are few things more disappointing in photography than missing a great shot because you couldn’t get to your gear in time. The new Slingshot Edge series rethinks the sling design for fast, optimized access to a compact DSLR or compact-system camera, while putting an added emphasis on trusted gear protection and style.”

The Slingshot Edge series is designed for urban photographers, day trippers and travelers looking for a slim and versatile camera bag to keep things light and easy. Two sizes are available, each featuring padded, dedicated compartments to keep camera gear, a tablet and other essentials organized and safe. The Slingshot Edge 150 AW is designed to hold a mirrorless/compact-system camera with attached lens, a second lens, a small tablet and personal items. The larger Slingshot Edge 250 AW can accommodate a compact DSLR camera with attached lens, an extra lens, flash, full-size tablet and additional personal gear. Both bags come complete with a built-in All Weather (AW) Cover to protect from rain, snow or dust, as well as external bag straps that allow for the attachment of a small tripod or other equipment.

The Slingshot Edge 150 AW (CA MSRP $109.95) and 250 AW (CA MSRP $129.95) are now available for purchase at a number of retail locations as well as http://www.lowepro.ca.
