THUNDER BAY – TECH – Traveling to cover news and events means carrying the gear you need. As a journalist that means a digital camera, a video camera, lenses, MacBook Pro, and the cords and accessories needed to power the tools. On average that totals about thirty pounds of gear.
Making sure that your gear is protected, arrives safe, and is easily accessible during the trip is where having the right bag or pack to do that. In the past, that meant carrying a tripod bag, a camera bag, and a laptop backpack.
After six years, my Targa laptop backpack started showing serious signs of its age. The nylon was starting to rip, and the zippers were starting to wear out.
After a LOT of research looking at a lot of backpacks and camera bags and ways to carry our equipment, I decided that the Lowepro Protastic 450 AW II would fit the bill and do what we needed and protect our equipment.
Today, NetNewsLedger is using the Lowepro Protastic 450 AW II. This is a durably built backpack that provides versatility and comfort to carry.
Check out the video to see just how this versatile pack could help make a difference for you too.
The Lowepro Protastic and accessories are available in Thunder Bay at Imagetech.
