    Five things to look for in a rolling camera bag

    Final wedding photography tips from our professional photographer: pack a roller bag

    You want more than wheels from a roller case. Will it hold all your kit, and will it keep things safe?

    01 Divide and conquer
    Removable, adjustable dividers enable you to tailor the main compartment to accommodate small and large lenses and other camera accessories. A greater number of dividers is helpful if you have many small items.

    02 Extra compartments
    Additional internal and external compartments can be good to have. A popular option is a dedicated compartment for holding a laptop or tablet, sometimes with a removable padded sleeve.

    03 Rigid walls
    The side walls of all but the CoOrdinate Ranger and Lowepro Pro Runner bags are reinforced with rigid inserts. These add strength and make the bag more resistant to crushing.

    04 Rain cover
    All roller bags tend to be shower-resistant, but some go further with additional rain-proof covers that you can slip over the entire bag. It’s reassuring if you’re going to be out in nasty weather.

    05 Big lens capacity
    You could squeeze a 600mm f/4 into the Manfrotto Pro VII Roller, Tamrac Big Wheels Speedroller 1x and Think Tank Photo Airport 4-Sight, but little else. The others may be too small for big glass.
