And it might be yours.

For your chance to win the Pro Runner 300 AW, post a comment below answering the question: “Are your urban or outdoors?” Since this backpack works great in both environments, either is appropriate. We’ll randomly select a comment next week, and notify everyone on our Facebook Fan Page and here.

    My choice is South Africa because it has good places for both landscapes and wild life photography.

    Hey Lowepro
    As a travel writer and photographer I venture into all natures of photography, but I would have to say I am more the outdoors photographer, on the move, constantly travelling. I have been on the look out for a pro bag I can use for my camera and as a daypack when hiking and checking out cities, the Pro Runner 300AW would be perfect for this. Lots of room for my cameras and some extra space for my essential notebooks and pens. Love it!

  • I am urban and outdoors. I just started taking thoughtfully composed photography, but the concrete jungles and lush Appalachian trail of America’s North East offer different and beautiful opportunities.

  • Sheri says:

    Outdoors all the way and this bag would be a much needed addition to the smaller, yet much loved, Lowepro Slingshot 100 that I currently own.

  • Ricky says:
