I am a college student currently taking a digital photography class, so I have photo assignments due throughout the class. The bag has come in very handy. I went to the zoo to try to get some photos, and being able to pull the bag with my extra lens, rather than try to cary them really saved my back. I just unzipped the front and slid the interior bag outward, and swapped lens as needed, all while the bag was still upright on the wheels. The only minor problem is that the camera body (Cannon 60D) with battery grip on it won't fit, so I have to take the grip off and put it in first, then the body with the 18mm-135mm lens goes in nicely over the grip. I also carry a 100MM Macro and a 70-300mm zoom and car charger in the bag. Other stuff goes in the zip up pockets.

There is no problem with the quality of the product and the handle and wheels are of good quality; but it I thought that there would be more room inside with the removable bag inside. There is no way to attach the roller to another suitcase, though you can do so with the removable bag.

If you are planning on taking any additional equipment beyond the camera and three lenses ... look for an alternative.

If it were easier to return from out of the U.S., I would have done so.

Comments about Lowepro Pro Roller Attache X50 Case:

Durable, carries what I need. The exterior case needs D rings on it so the shoulder strap could be used. The unit will roll on concrete or asphalt but not on dirt. The handle is fine for short walks but a shoulder strap attachement is needed.

    I use this primarily for protecting my off-camera lenses when on the go. Love the fact that you can pull out the soft case with a strap for easier use in the field. Would definitely recommend this product for a photographer on the go who likes having a few extra lenses and accessories on them!

    Comments about Lowepro Pro Roller Attache X50 Case:

    My fiancé teases me that my camera has it's own suitcase when we travel, and truthfully my camera travels better than I do. :-)

    I received this case as a gift to compliment my other cases. I have a larger Lowepro rolling case from a decade ago, but needed something a little more maneuverable on shorter trips. Although I wish the case was just slightly larger to accommodate my camera with a battery pack, I've been able to make do by carrying fewer items and turning my camera sideways in the case. Most of the time the camera is on me, so I am only lugging around additional accessories. There are so many pockets and storage places for my iPad/Laptop, and numerous accessories.

    I really love the interior bag, I would pay the sales price just for this bag alone. Best yet, it slides on the handle of the rolling bag. This offers a lot of flexibility as i can either pack a couple days worth of clothes or bring along a few more camera accessories if I am traveling by car.

    The two bags are of really good quality. The wheels roll smoothly. I only wish there was an attachment for my tripod like some of the larger rolling cases.

    I'd love to see another case like this that had a backpack rather than a shoulder strap, okay, I am dreaming. :-)

    Smaller than I thought but it will work fine. I will end up using the camera bag stacked on the rolling bag. A larger camera area with additonal areas to store items would be nice. A security cable should have been included.

        For years I've used a Lowepro backpack and was very happy with it. Then the airlines changed the carry-on sizes, so it was a must to find a case that would hold enough equipment for a trip and feel confident it was safe from harm. This new roller camera bag outfit is fantastic and has been a delight to use. I would recommend it for regular use and travel.

          This is a great travel bag. You can pack you clothes in the bottom bag, and your camera equipment in the camera bag, place the camera bag on top and roll thru checkpoints and customs. Then after you are set, pull out the camera and start to shoot!

          I think the bag within the other is a waste of space. For those that travel and only have one camera body, this would be perfect. The size is great and the handles are study and come out easily. All in all I would buy it again.

            Comments about Lowepro Pro Roller Attache X50 Case:

            I purchased this product during a "Manufacturer's Instant Rebate" special for a great price (final $99.95). The product is well made and although the product description states a 14" computer will fit inside , I have no problem cramming my 15" Macbook Pro (I use the front zip compartment of the attaché).

            Having the shoulder bag constructed so it can be inserted into roller bag is inventive! I love that I can roll everything through an airport or store into overheads knowing that my equipment has protection.

            One thing I like about this bag is the replaceable wheels which can be removed with an Allen wrench. I noted some where online that skateboard wheels can be used in the replacement. I don't know how many times I have wished I could do this on my luggage.

            I have not used the retractable TelePod™ Handle feature yet. I think (in my case) it could come in handy for a makeshift platform for lighting but product description suggests for camera mounting as well.

            My next purchase is the Mountainsmith Kit Cube Traveler as an additional insert.

              I will be using this bag to carry my camera gear on vacation later this year. It's a good solidly built system. I like the dual bag design that will allow me to use the inner bag as a carry bag on site, and the roller bag as airline carry on luggage. Not large enough to carry all my gear, but large enough for what I'll need once I get there. It will hold my Canon 7D, two lenses and my flash, with room for a few misc. cables etc.

              Will use to take for one kind of shhot, indoors for sports, for example. It is too small for a lot of gear. My bad back made this a necessity. Too small for a pro, methinks, but it is solid , with good protection for a camera a flash, and a lens. Roller means no carry. Old folks and bad backs need apply.

                My wife asked a very good friend of mine (who's a credited photographer) which bag I should get to carry 4-5 lenses on vacation with.

                I have to say, this bag is amazing and B+H rocked at getting it arrive on time for my birthday.

                Jeff

                p.s. I have bought a lot of photograhy equipment from B+H over the years. Great buys. They always know their stuff.

                  Got this rolling case to carry my camera, etc. and while it's not perfect, it's perfect for a trip. The outer case holds the inner case nicely, but not if it's overstuffed. The whole thing is GREAT for getting through the airport without lugging the camera, etc., on your shoulder, because of the wheels--and everything os really protected. On the cross-country flight I took the bag on, I used the inside bag for under-the-seat, but it was pretty tight (no foot room); once I'd arrived, the inside case was my camera bag, and it worked great.

                    I was looking for a compact roller case as a carry-on for air travel. My current roller case was a bit large and I wanted something small that would not draw attention to the fact that it is probably over the carry-on weight limit. I generally use this without the padded bag insert, since this gives me more space. Overall, it's a great little compact roller bag, but I do feel LowePro could have done more to make lighter.

                      Comments about Lowepro Pro Roller Attache X50 Case:

                      I was undecided on the many types and brands of carry bags when I spotted this one on a B&H sale.
                      It's a wonderful concept, giving you the expandability of converting it to a two case system as your needs dictate.
                      First, the quality of the Lowe Pro X50 is fantastic with the one exception of the telescoping handle. It isn't the sturdiest construction out there but assuming you don't over load the case and decide to pull it up a staircase, you'll be fine. The added mount for a speed light in the handle is a great feature that many bags costing more have neglected to include.
                      As a over-the-shoulder bag, it simply rocks! Included are enough divider partitions to arrange your gear safely without worry. I was able to fit my Nikon D40x with a mid zoom, two additional lenses, 3 speedlights and my light meter with a little room to spare.
                      after much comparison shopping even after I received it proves that the Pro Roller X50 is without doubt one of the best buys in this category.
                      It was a no-brainer at the sale price but at full price I may have gone with the Think Tank line.
                      I am very pleased to say the least with my purchase.

                        Truly Great for traveling via plane! And that's what it's for.

                        Not something to use if you are trying to take multiple cameras or a computer larger than a 14 inch.

                        At the sale price they have going on through the end of Jan 2013, it's a steal.
