Flying into Marsh Harbor, Bahamas for a shoot. Tiny American Eagle jets are always a challenge when traveling with photography gear from Point A to Point B. You don’t want to send your cameras into the luggage hold. Gate checking a roller bag only ensures that it gets banged around fewer times…
But this time, I’m on a travel photography shoot with my new Lowepro Pro Roller x200. It’s the perfect combination of a photo backpack tucked inside of a roller shell. I gotta tell the truth.
I was wrong about this bag the first time I saw it. I failed to see the advantage of a pop-out backpack. But getting on my flight today, instead of gate checking my gear, I pulled out the backpack and sent the empty roller shell underneath. I still figured that at the very least, I’d still have to pull out my laptop to get this thing to fit on the tiny Eagle turbo prop. But I was wrong again, the backpack slipped right in with my MacBook Pro in the laptop pocket on top.
Smart Design. The prefect bag for challenges of the road.
