LowePro Pro Roller x Photography equipment cases : Lowepro’s inventive new Pro Roller x-Series looks like fine luggage, but performs like a hardworking mobile studio for professional photographers on the go. Lowepro, a product design company that invents protective gear for photography equipment and portable electronics, announces the launch of its new camera roller, the Pro Roller x-Series. Designed with airport-compatibility and extra security in mind, the Pro Roller x-Series offers breakthrough solutions for the photographer who travels with extensive and valuable gear.

Lowepro’s design team created the Lock & Go System of security that features a 3-digit combination lock and one retractable cable to keep all zippered compartments safe and sound. The Travel Sentry lock is recognized and accepted by TSA, assuring protection of gear around the globe. Another unique innovation is Lowepro’s Reserve Pack feature. A camera backpack is built right into the hard case and serves as a dual carrying option. To downsize in a last-minute scenario, simply unzip the case and put on the Reserve Pack to board a small aircraft. Store your photography equipment save; A zippered front panel closes and secures the hard case for check-in or storage while the Reserve Pack is in use.

“Our team had a lot of fun building a bag that offers an equal blend of high-performing features and artful details a pro photographer will appreciate,” said Tim Grimmer, Product Manager, Lowepro. “A perfect example of Lowepro inventiveness is our retractable TelePod Handle which can serve as a tripod-like shooting or lighting platform in a pinch. The molded design also resembles a camera grip,” he added.
