The purposes are:

  1. Storage. Of as much of my photographic equipment as possible. Preferably all. This is the important one.
  2. Easy transport of it all.

Criterium for #2 is that it's a rolling case. It seems like a good way to transport it in a lot of situations. In even more situations: Backpack.

These fit the criteria (volume in L):

Main gear:
  • Cameras
    • Canon EOS 400D
    • Canon EOS 500
    • Canon EOS 600D

  • Lenses
    • 8 mm fisheye
    • 11-16 mm f/2.8 (Tokina)
    • 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6
    • 35 mm f/2
    • 35-80 mm f/4-5.6
    • 50 mm f/1.8
    • 100 mm f/2.8
    • 200 mm f/2.8

  • Flashes & Lighting
    • 430 EX II
    • More to come in this department. Need space for that (PWs etc.)

Based on this information, what do you think is a good fit for me? I think both Pro Rollers look a bit old ('97 & '98 by the URLs one should think). I haven't bothered getting volume of equipment yet, but might do at some point.

I own the Lowepro Pro Runner 450, not the x, so mine doesn't have wheels, but it is exactly the same otherwise, so for you I would highly recommend the X450 !!

I love the bag, holds tons of gear, I have 2 gripped bodies, 6 lenses with hoods, 3 flashes, tons of batteries, memory cards, cables, hdd, my 17 laptop, and still room for some more. It is heavy when full, but gives plenty of prtoection and is comfortable to transport when I need everything with me. (external link)
