The bag harkens back to the design of their Pro Roller from a few years ago with some notable differences. It’s slimmer, which means it should fit on any flight regardless of U.S. or international travel. With just a 7.5-inch depth and at only eight pounds, it allows you to maximize the gear you bring without exceeding weight restrictions.
The bag’s vibration-absorbing, urethane-case wheels with ABEC-5 rated bearings ensure a smooth glide and long-lasting durability. Comfort-padded top and side handles and a sturdy three-stage aluminum trolley with center button control provide convenient carry options.
Despite the smaller size, the bag doesn’t seem to suffer in the capacity department. Able to hold two DSLR bodies and six lenses (including a large 70-200mm) along with more space to spare around the edges, this roller should have just about everything you need to keep on you aside from strobes and tripods. It can, however, hold a 15-inch laptop, a small to medium sized tripod and additional accessories.
Key innovative features of the PhotoStream RL 150 include a FormShell™ molded EVA front panel, similar to that of the ProTactic series, that provides armored device protection while preventing the bag from getting caught in overhead bins. The roller also offers a hinged CradleFit™ front panel that suspends and protects your laptop, giving you easy access to your device without opening the entire bag.
It’s a pretty nice looking small, light roller that fits nicely in their line of roller bags. It also has that new molded EVA front panel which protects it from impact and looks pretty slick.
The PhotoStream RL 150 will retail for $250, which isn’t too much to ask for something that can carry that much gear.
