Traveling with large amounts of gear is often a hassle, but a good rolling bag can help things along quite a bit. This week at the WPPI show in Las Vegas, Lowepro is announcing the latest version of their Pro Roller x-AW series bags.
The Pro Roller comes in three sizes, X100, X200, and X300. The X100 and X200 are both small enough to work as an airline carry-on, while the massive X300 needs to be checked. Of course, if you’re traveling by car, it doesn’t really matter since they all fit in a typical trunk.
The interior protection system uses a ballistic nylon shell around the outside of the case with new foam for padding in the dividers. The MaxFit dividers use a specific Velcro attaching system to allow for more precise adjustment. And since adjusting Velcro dividers is one of the most annoying things I can think of, that’s a welcome addition.
It has TSA-approved locks, see-through pockets on the flap, and smooth-rolling wheels for easy transport. There’s also a “reserve pack” that comes out of the hard shell in case you’d rather wear your gear on your back instead of rolling it around.
The X100 starts at $369, while the X200 checks in at $399. The flagship X300 checks in at $479.
