Lowepro Unveils New Pro Roller x-Series Camera Bags

Lowepro Pro Roller X200AW

Lowepro Pro Roller X200AW

Lowepro has unveiled a trio of new rolling camera bags in the new Pro Roller x-Series – the Pro Roller X100 AW, Pro Roller X200AW and Pro Roller X300AW. At the core of this new design is Lowepro’s patent-pending MaxFit System of adjustable, interior dividers. This micro-fitting structure is intended to make it easy to closely pack pro bodies, large lenses and all essential accessories in a deep and roomy interior while maintaining superior protection in a streamlined form factor. The design is paired with high-impact protection, built-in weather protection and a travel-friendly design.

I had the chance to check out these new bags up close at CES 2014 and I have to say, they have some smart features and are well made top to bottom. One of the little details that sticks out is the velcro dividers. If you’ve used any kind of camera bag before, you’ve been met with the frustration of the velcro sticking to the cushioned sides as you try to slide the dividers inside. These dividers actually fold inward so that they don’t touch the cushioned sides until you have the divider in place and fold it out to secure it in place. You get a glimpse feature and several other highlights in the video below.

All of the new bags include a built-in all weather cover, which is stored in a hidden pocket on the back of the bag. The x200 and x100 meet airline carry-on requirements and all bags have TSA-approved locks with locking zippers.

The Pro Roller x-Series bags feature a “Reserve Pack”, which is basically a bag within a bag. The main compartment unzips from the roller, allowing you to separate the camera compartment from the hard-shelled roller.

Pro Roller x300 AW fits: 1-2 Pro DSLRs with grip, 8-10 lenses (up to 600mm), accessories and small personal items, and up to a 17″ laptop.

Pro Roller x200 AW fits: 1-2 Pro DSLRs with grip, 6-8 lenses (to up 600mm), accessories and small personal items, and up to a 17″ laptop.

Pro Roller x100 AW fits: 1-2 Pro DSLRs, 4-6 lenses (up to 400mm), accessories and small personal items, and up to a 15″ laptop.
