Lowe Alpine is launching a completely new generation of its AirZone backpacks, the hugely successful mid-size category that has won numerous ‘Best Buys’ and continues to drive volume sales. The new AirZones gain a softer body contact mesh for the back system, while Lowe Alpine’s Adaptive Fit shoulder strap design now ensures the harness adapts to any body shape. Key AirZone products gain a new, easily adjustable Centro back system plus the Adaptive Fit hip belt ensuring a personalized fit. The design emphasis is on clean, clutter‐free designs with fresh, bold and exciting colors. All AirZone packs use a new high quality nylon fabric that combines a 210D nylon 6 base fabric with a 6.6 mini-ripstop grid mix. This allows for great colorfastness and incredible tear resistance. The material is further treated with a standard PU coating. Under its new ownership Lowe Alpine has worked hard to ensure that its trademark commitment to the best materials and build quality is combined with a real world approach to pricing. Recommended retail prices range from $200.00 for the top end AirZone Trek+ 45:55, to $100.00 for the compact AirZone Z 20.
