Lowepro
has unveiled a camera backpack commemorating the company's 40th anniversary
-- the Primus AW. The industry's first backpack designed for the
professional photographer that is made primarily from recycled materials, the
Primus AW is said to be a perfect combination of unmatched easy access points
and extreme-condition protection. Primus AW is designed to provide maximum comfort,
protection and accessibility with minimal bulk, making it ideal for outdoor
photography. Funds raised from the sale of the Primus AW will support Polar
Bears International (PBI), a nonprofit organization dedicated to the worldwide
conservation of the polar bear.



Primus AW enables photographers to carry and access all the necessary components
for outdoor photography while providing the highest possible comfort and extreme
protection during a full day of shooting in the great outdoors. The main camera
compartment is padded and holds a digital SLR Pro body with zoom lens attached,
in addition to 1-2 extra lens or flash units. The camera compartment is expandable,
enabling large equipment capacity and quick equipment retrieval. The Primus
AW also offers photographers quick and easy access to their equipment, without
removing the bag, through expandable side zipped camera pockets. The bag's
exclusive lumbar equipment access points allow instant access to camera gear
of varying sizes, while keeping equipment off the ground. An additional top
daypack compartment is large enough to carry all the accessories needed for
extreme outdoor photography, plus personal gear. Primus AW also boasts a seam-sealed
All-Weather Cover, a built-in memory card pouch, back hatch, hideaway tripod
mount with ice axe loop and Glide-Lock™ attachment.



With the release of the Primus AW, Lowepro is honored to present the industry's
first backpack to be constructed of 51% recycled materials. The majority of
the bag is made up of Cyclpet, a 100% post consumer recycled fabric, establishing
the Primus AW as the industry standard for eco-friendly carrying solutions.
Each bag contains enough recycled material to equate to 22.6 soda bottles. By
preventing this material from reaching a landfill, .0034 cubic yards of landfill
space is being conserved for each bag produced. By simply requiring that each
bag be made from 51% recycled materials, Lowepro is able to conserve 15,109
BTU's of energy, .002 barrels of crude oil and .12 gallons of refined
oil throughout the production process.



Polar Bears International's mission is to conserve the world's polar
bear population through research and education, as well as to serve as a central
educational resource on polar bears worldwide. A potentially threatened species,
the major threat to the polar bear is climate change due to global warming which
could easily put the polar bear on the endangered species list. Polar bears
are also jeopardized by pollution, poaching, and industrial disturbances. All
officers and directors serve the foundation without pay or expense reimbursement,
so the organization is able to apply 100% of its revenue directly to research
programming.



Additional features of the Primus AW backpack include an ergonomic, dryflow
lined harness system used to distribute weight evenly and allow for breathable
comfort. The 100% post consumer recycled fabric combines water and abrasion
resistance with an ecologically minded design. This pack also conforms to a
variety of body types with an adjustable 8-point harness system giving the adventure
photographer exceptional comfort under heavy load. Silent zipper pulls provide
quiet access to equipment while leaving wildlife subjects undisturbed.

It was 25 years ago that LumiQuest came on the scene with its original product—the LumiQuest Pocket Bouncer. And it still remains one of the most popular LumiQuest products in the world. LumiQuest was co-founded in 1987 by Quest Couch and Heidi Kenny as a result of their Audio Visual Production company, which required Quest to be on-location shooting for clients. “This type of photography was fast-paced and required being prepared for a variety of different lighting situations,” Quest explains. “At the time, I often carried several Vivitar 283s and their metal bracket with a bounce card, which was bulky and cumbersome to pack”.
