    I am about to do a bit of air travel and need a rolling bag for my gear.
    I have one hasselblad body, 2 backs, 3 lenses, one light meter and a load of film.
    I am considering the Lowepro Mini Roller or Pro Roller 1.

    Anyone out there have this bag? Any comments?

    I've seen a couple of nice f/64 rolling cases in the used section of B&H--new bags, but in discontinued styles at good prices. I have two f/64 shoulder bags, and I've been very satisfied with them, and the rolling bags look to be very well made. I've seen them in the shop, but they should be on the website in the used section, if they haven't sold out.

    Here is the case you need to get:

    I have one I was lucky enough to get new, and I love it. It is not a rolling one but it is small enough that carrying it in your shoulder is not a big deal. I put in it one body, 2 backs, a 180, 50 and 80 mm lens, filters and a light meter. All fits in a case that is little bigger than a small lap top case.

    BTW if you get it anywhere near this price it is a steal!

    I have a Tamrac Expedition 5 and a new Lowepro Photo Trekker AW II . I need something that is easier to carry through the airport and I cannot take any chances with having to check my gear.
