Lowepro Geneva 30

The Lowepro Geneva 10 and 30 has a thick open-cell foam padding lined with soft, brushed tricot and reinforced with PE board, providing a snug fit and protection from bumps, scratches and abrasion. Users can carry the Geneva pouch two wayssecured to a belt, loop or strap with Lowepro's convenient SlipLock attachment tab; or over the shoulder or across the body with the adjustable shoulder strap.

Additional features include an interior slip pocket for memory card or other small accessory, and a no-drop gusset for easy and secure access to contents. The Geneva 10 ($27) and Geneva 30 ($30) are available in Black and Pine Green.

The Lowepro Passport Sling ($89) is unlike a traditional sling bag as it conforms to the body and moves with the wearer. Users can place it across the chest, high and close or low and loose, depending on the activity. The shoulder strap features a cam lock buckle that easily adjusts for an ideal fit, plus a removable, sliding shoulder pad that offers cushioned comfort when needed.

On the exterior, two slash pockets and a water bottle pocket provide quick access to maps, guide books, boarding passes. Inside, the sling is equipped to protect your DSLR and a few accessories as well as offer plenty of space for personal items. Unzip the front of the Passport Sling to reveal an expansion compartment that adds approximately 30 per cent more space.

A fully padded camera box (with built-in memory card pocket) protects a DSLR. Remove it and collapse the box when you want to pack the sling in a larger bag for travel.

Lowepro Exchange Messenger
The Lowepro Exchange Messenger ($89) is a DSLR shoulder bag that offers soft-sided protection with modern appeal. Criss-crossing panels add a subtle detail to the front flap. An integrated, adjustable shoulder strap lets you wear the bag two ways: over the shoulder or across the body, messenger-style.

The two-buckle closure provides fast access to contents and security when you're on the move. Three deep pockets (one with a zipper) store accessories, a wallet, mobile phone or other essentials. The roomy main compartment is lined in contrasting fabric to easily distinguish your gear.

There's plenty of room inside for today's most popular DSLR models (placed horizontally), plus an extra lens or flash, in addition to personal gear. The two padded, adjustable dividers let you customise the interior to create the perfect fit for your camera kit and extras. The Exchange Messenger is available in Black, Grey and Sea Blue.
