The new and updated black Adventura SH 115 III Shoulder Bag from Lowepro is a great choice for all your photo adventures. It features a lightweight yet rugged design with multiple handy features, including multiple accessory pockets, an adjustable and removable shoulder strap, and PVC-free molded bumpers to prevent scratches and protect the bag and its contents from moisture. The exterior fabric is coated with PU lamination, providing both waterproofing and protection from the elements. The bag holds a compact mirrorless or bridge camera, such as a Sony a6600 with a small lens attached, or an action camera. It is ideal for both novice and enthusiast photographers.
The bag meets Lowepro's environmental efforts, with up to 88% Green Line fabrics used. Lowepro has achieved this by using recycled and solution-dyed fabrics, which saves water and reduces GHG emissions. This is measured following the GRI 301-2 standard, with the percentage of the recycled fiber used, compared to the total fiber used by weight.
Green Line Update
Lowepro's popular Adventura collection has been updated with the Green line process, which means it's now made from recycled and solution-dyed fabric. The Green Line is represented by a loading bar, indicating the percentage of recycled and solution-dyed fabrics used when manufacturing bags.
Lowepro's new bags are made from dope-dyed black fabrics and recycled linings/webbings, to reduce water use and CO2 emissions.
Dope-dyeing, also called solution or spun dyeing, is a production technique to color synthetic fibers such as acrylic, nylon, and polyester. With this technique pigments are added to the liquid polymer solution before synthetic fibers are extruded. Instead of traditional wet yarn dyeing, in which the yarn is knitted or weaved first into a fabric which is then dyed as a whole, dope dyed yarn is the opposite. Traditional wet dyeing has created problems for both the environment and human health. Large amounts of chemicals and dyes are used in wet processing, wasting water and releasing dangerous chemicals into the environment. Using dope-dyed fabrics reduces greenhouse gas emissions, water usage, and chemical usage.
