The Ultimate All-Weather Day Pack

The Lowepro Whistler 450 AW represents the pinnacle of technical performance, functionality and innovation in Lowepro’s All-Weather backpack range. Aimed squarely at professional photographers and filmmakers, it represents the only choice for uncompromising transportation of camera and outdoor gear.

Tried and Tested Performance

As is its namesake, this backpack was inspired, designed and tested by the extreme conditions in the alpine region of Whistler on the Coast Mountains of British Columbia, Canada.

Customisable Maxfit Dividers

Lowepro’s tried and tested MaxFit system enables complete customisation of how your gear is organised and protected. Its large internal cavity equips you with the ability to use the included Velcro style divider system to sort and house your camera gear to suit your specific shooting and access requirements.

Glove Friendly Operation

Large, glove friendly zipper pulls are littered throughout the bag, perfect for fast access to your gear in cold and wet climates.

Suits a Wide Range of Camera Gear

With ample storage space for even the most hard core professionals the pack is capable of housing a Full Frame Professional DSLR such as a Canon 1DX or Nikon D4S with a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens attached, 3 additional professional grade lenses, a Flash, GoPro or other Action Cameras, plus plenty of room for mounts, batteries, chargers, cables, survival gear and much more.

Removable Camera Gear Compartment

Additionally, the main compartment is made from a modular style cell which can be removed completely. This design allows you to quickly and conveniently clean or dry out the pack in between adventures.

Waterproof Front Divider

A large expandable front compartment is separated from your camera gear by a rip-proof and waterproof barrier. With drain holes at the bottom, this compartment is perfect for housing tools such as climbing ropes, or a snow shovel while providing you with the peace of mind that your valuable camera equipment is not getting wet, or otherwise damaged.

Hi-Visibility Top Compartment

A handy top compartment features a high-visibility orange interior for fast identification of essential items. It is perfect for smaller personal items such as goggles, sunglasses, hats, wallet, smartphone, loose change and features a built-in key leash for added convenience.

Includes All Weather AW Cover

The lid of the top pocket hides the All Weather AW cover. This cover features an elastic skirt that allows you to quickly and easily fit the cover over the entire exterior of the bag, protecting it from rain, sleet, snow, dust, sand and anything else Mother Nature might want to test you with.

Adjustable Ergonomic Comfort

Lowepro’s ActivZone harness system delivers optimal comfort and stability, ensuring maximum confidence when hauling serious equipment into extreme locations. The padded and ergonomically shaped shoulder straps are combined with a height and width adjustable sternum strap, enabling a customised fit specific to your body type.

Padded Waist Strap

A padded waist strap is used to help transfer the load to your centre of gravity for more efficient weight distribution. A pocket and accessory loops integrated into the waist belt also provide fast access to smaller or frequently used items like energy bars or carabineer clips.

Efficient Airflow Back

Six Moulded EVA comfort panels are integrated in to the back for optimum comfort, breathability and airflow.

External Attachment Versatility

The bag exterior features multiple heavy-duty attachments points for incredible attachment versatility and capacity expansion. Its SlipLock system enables you to strap on heavy items such as skis, snowboards, poles, a tripod or other mountain hardware while keeping your hands free to shoot or climb.

Built To Last

Constructed using a combination of the most technical materials available including 420 Denier Rip-stop nylon, Duraflex hooks and a Hypalon base, the Lowepro Whistler 450 AW Backpack is built to excel in the toughest conditions on Earth.
