      I had a deca doctor 4 bag by Petrol for about a year now and have been slinging it on my shoulder since I purchased it. I knew there was a trolley attachment for it but never bothered to purchase it for no real reason. I had a job that came up where I knew I'd be moving to several areas in a location while still needing access to some of my lenses and batteries, so I figured I'd get this.

      First impressions: the wheels are pretty good; they look like roller blade wheels. There's a squeaking sound that comes from one side, however, that I think is the wheel rubbing up against the metal sleeve that extends the wheel away from the trolley itself. Kind of annoying, but still functions properly.

      The handle is a little plastic-y, and the release button is really easy to push by accident.

      Other than that, pretty good overall.

                This is specifically made for some petrol products. You can't really use it for anything else. It seems a little flimsy, but it does its job, which is to roll my camera bag around.

                    I've been using and abusing the PA1001 for many months in combination with Petrol's PC206 Deca LG Camporter (best bag ever!) under any weather, including snow storms and hurricanes. When I have to detach it from the bag, it takes only a moment (with a little practice). I owe it to this little thing if my back is still in one piece.

                    This my 2nd Petrol Bag combo and it is perfect for quickly storing and accessing gear. Have used indoor and even on an outdoor shoot for a gold prospecting shoot. Easy to roll anywhere.

                              Perfect solution for the Deca Doctor Bag 3. This trolly is better than most with a anti-locking frame that just connects for the photographer or videographer on the run. It's perfect for travel and comes with a attachable strap that allows fitting for the perfect taste and style.Traveling through a airport has never been easier or more complete.

                              Adds rolling capability to the Deca Doctor Bag 3. Once I figured out how to attach and detach the trolley from the bag, it worked great. Needs documentation! After rolling down the aisle on an airplane, it detaches easily for storage in the overhead bin.

                              Does need a set of instructions on how to use the thing. Even went online in search of them, but didn't find any. Figured it out through trial and error.

                                the trolley work okay, but the way it attaches to the case could be better.

                                Very thoughtfully designed trolley unit that snaps onto the bottom of the Petrol Doctor Bags. Quick to remove as it uses a latching system rather than slipping through a sleeve as it does with the KATA system.
