Thule Perspektiv Collection scoops prestigious TIPA Award for “Best Photo Bag”

Every year the highly respected ‘Technical Image Press Association’ (TIPA) votes for the best photo & imaging products introduced to the market. This year, Thule Perspektiv has been awarded in the category “Best Photo Bag”, thanks to its innovative design and usage, as well as the high-quality materials and craftsmanship.

It has only been since the beginning of 2013 that the Thule Perspektiv collection was launched to market, but yet again, Thule Group has shown that they are the leading specialist when it comes to safe and stylish transport of any kind of precious gear. The acknowledgement comes in form of the well-respected TIPA Award for “Best Photo Bag“ 2014.

The jury, represented by editors of 28 photography and imaging magazines from all five continents, has established their decision as follows:

“Marked by an ergonomic chassis system that provides an excellent balance of support, cushioning and breathability, the Thule Perspektiv series comes in a variety of sizes and configurations to match every camera and gear carrying need. Their ‘Cloudburst’ construction, with welded and taped critical seams, including a hideaway rain fly, specially treated fabric and YKK RCPU zippers provide excellent protection from all sorts of weather conditions. Included in carriers such as the Daypack are removable SafeZone compartments for advanced protection of fragile gear that can be removed for safe storage in, for example, hotel safes. The interiors can be fully customized to fit numerous types of cameras and lenses.“

“We are particularly pleased with TIPAs recognition of the Thule Perspektiv Camera Bag collection as this award acknowledges our entrance with the Thule brand to the professional photo and imaging industry. The award is one of the most coveted in this realm, and this reinforces our underlying focus on quality, easy usage, safe protections and design when we developed the bags, and our long-term plans to become a leading brand in the camera bag segment”, says Magnus Welander, CEO and President of the Thule Group.
