I would like to thank Lowepro for keeping my equipment safe for today.
Was shooting at the beach for my school's yr1 orientation today, when it suddenly poured heavily without warning. With just enough time to disassemble and keep my equipment into my Lowepro SR 300AW, I starting walking back with some student councillors and ushered the freshmen back to school. Meanwhile, everyone around was drenched from head to toe, and that included my camera bag. (For those who were around Marine Parade area around 12pm today, you would have know how heavy the rain was).
Back at school, I dried myself and took out my camera bag for a check. To my amazement, not a single item inside my bag was wet, and that includes my notebooks and notes. Only the top and side outer covers were wet. NOTE: I did not use the rain cover provided inside the bag.
Currently, the whole bag is inside my dry box. Since being put in, it has raised the humidity level of the dry box from 30% to 65%.
Anyone else with experiences of Lowepro products, whether good or bad, just post it here. Keep banal talk away.
