The black Rolling Propack 217 from Domke is a multi-functional, water-resistant nylon bag designed for the shooter on the go. It's a bit smaller than their Rolling Propack 220 version but still maintains the same full features and flexibility for a weekend bag. This rugged bag makes packing easy and organized. Several sections are available to hold everything from photo gear to extra clothes. It looks like a piece of luggage but can also be used for a location pack when loaded with a ton of gear. The in-line wheels make navigating ramps and hallways easy or the top carry handle is ready to be grabbed when unloading the 217 from the trunk of your car. Strong front buckles secured on a wide strap that runs the length of the bag keep the bag shut.
Six storage pockets are available for cameras, lenses and accessories. Even if you're not going to use it just for photo gear, you can pack it with extra clothes in one of its spacious compartments. Or, if you just need it for clothes, you'll still have room for a camera or two. As a matter of fact, if you fold your Domke F-2 or F-3X, you can store it in the front of the 217 and have a handy shoulder bag with you when you arrive at your destination. The bag is expandable by 2.5" (6.4 cm) by simply opening one of the zippers. As a shooting bag, it does the job but as a weekend bag, it's just as viable. In fact, it's like having two bags in one. The movable dividers permit you to sculpt the inside to suit your equipment needs. Outside, the YKK zippers are rugged and supported by metal hardware. As a fashionable addition, there are leather accents that set the bag apart from similar stow-and-go rolling packs.
The name "Domke" is synonymous with bag quality. Their bags have graced the shoulders of pros and amateurs for decades. Backed by their 2-year warranty, the Propack 217 offers you features that make it appealing for a flexible, rugged and reliable rolling pack.
