I am looking to pick up a rolling camera bag with a lock. Here are my search criteria:
- rolling bag with a lock
- at least 6.5" in depth
- durable & light rain/water resistant
- nice to have: compartment for tripod/light stand

So far I have found the following bags to fit my need. Are there cheaper alternatives? I don't mind non-brand name items. I rather spend $ on accessories such as cf cards than a bag.

Lowepro pro roller x200 for $300
Thinktank airport international v2 for $370

If you fly with your prospective rolling camera bag…

Just remember that while it’s a great bag, the LOWEPRO PROROLLER X200 has an external Lineal of 51.1” [exceeds FAA 45” carry-on limits from approx 2009] & is heavy 13.2 lbs!
Bag inner capacity of X200 is 1594 cubic inch .
Vs
THINK TANK AIRPORT INTERNATIONAL V2.0 of 1563 cubic inch(with an external Lineal of 43”; within FAA 45” ) with virtually the same inner cubic content. Weight: 9.5-11.5lbs.

Airlines rules of today are sometimes not the rules of tomorrow - I found that out over the years the hard way, as my Lowepro ProRoller X200 which was many years ago fine for carry-on, is now offside on many airlines!

PELICAN are great, if your primary stated criteria(s) is light rain/water resistant; (I own one of those too), but I find them bulky & heavy.

Like almost any aspect of photography equipment, you pay if you want your equipment light-weight &/or compact.
Just one perspective and some things to consider, good luck…


Mary
P.S. My vote would be for the Think Tank Airport INTERNATIONAL V2.0(if fly internationally), or SECURITY(if only domestic) depending on your capacity requirements.

Searching myself along the same lines... I don't fly so the pelican 1510 isn't necessary I went through all other models and settled on the 1564 (1560 with dividers).

Hope that helps, search for the 1564 on here you will see gear filled layouts.

This review here helped me seal the deal https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=658347

ken. I have the Lowepro Pro Roller x200. It was ok awhile ago, but, airline rules may have changed. if you do not need to fly, it is great. good luck.

Thanks for the suggestions. I won't need to bring it onto the plane. It is primarily used for securing my equipments at an event such as a wedding. I am leaning towards Pelican 1564 because I can fit almost everything in including a studio light.

I use the Crumpler Flaked Extravaganza, I like the cable to secure it, so that nobody can walk off with it.
