I have a Lowepro non-rolling backpack that I carry that also fits my MacBook Pro 17" Laptop along with my camera gear.

I have had many good Lowepro camera bags over the years and was looking forward to a rolling bag that would save my need to add a luggage cart to my large backpack going through airports. This roller surprised me with how heavy the bag was empty, right out of the shipping box. Nonetheless, I decided to give it its due and transfer my equipment from my Lowepro backpack into this roller, and was immediately frustrated by the lack of nooks and crannies built into the roller. The backpack actually has more room and more innovative ways of storage than this overweight, under thought through cousin. There are so many design flaws that after a couple of days of dragging it around the house to see if I was being too finicky, I happily reloaded my backpack, and returned this overpriced, overweight, overnight bag. Sorry Lowepro, you need to rework this one completely. On a separate note, something I thought Lowepro would have figured out in this newer than my backpack model, Lowepro - the two little "pockets" are too small for actually holding my stash of digital media cards. A photographer carries more than two, and Nikon uses larger media than you have accounted for.

Color Name: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
If you have a SLR camera with some large lenses, a flash, a laptop and all the other accessories that go with this set up, then you have a lot of equipment to carry around. Typically camera backpacks come in small, medium and large sizes. This is the large model, from Lowepro, a respected maker of camera bags.

I evaluated this bag for a long overseas trip with a lot of photographic equipment. The challenge is to get all the equipment to the destination and then be in a position to carry it from photo-op to photo-op. These goals are contradictory. A big bag will let you take all your things by plane or car but then is impractical in the field. This bag, therefore, is to transport all your equipment where you are going. After that, switch to a smaller bag and only carry selected items. Alternatively, see if you can make do with a medium-sized, dual purpose bag.

Spacious: probably big enough to fit all your stuff in one bag. Will accommodate one pro DSLR with large lens or two smaller DSLRs and accessories, including medium laptop.
Has wheels.
Tripod mount.
Will fit in most big airplane overhead compartments. Not in the small planes, though.
Sturdy construction, but light for its size.
Padded straps for backpacking

Big: If you can manage with a smaller bag you should. This one is hard to maneuver in crowded spaces. Also do not imagine you will be backpacking with it. Even if the weight is not an issue, the bulk and square profile is.

In summary, I would use the Lowepro ProRunner 450 AW to carry all my photographic equipment in one bag as carry on luggage on an airplane or in a car. If real walking, hiking or crowded places are anticipated I would eliminate some stuff and use a smaller bag.

Over the years, I have come to really appreciate Lowepro camera bag designs, and this one certainly doesn't disappoint! Rugged, extremely functional design, and excellent mobility all make this rolling backpack one of the BEST Lowepro purchases I've ever made.

I travel a great deal, and until recently, I was only carrying one DSLR camera and its accessories. I have a Lowepro non-rolling backpack that I carry that also fits my MacBook Pro 17" Laptop along with my camera gear. I now have the need to carry 2 DSLR Cameras, 8 lenses, and a ton of other accessories including flash units, tripod ball-heads, battery packs etc... They simply all won't fit into one bag, and I absolutely refuse to check expensive camera gear at the airport, especially when traveling overseas. The X450AW has solved a number of issues in this regard. I now carry BOTH the original backpack including my laptop (meets the airline's "one carry-on bag with one additional laptop or similar case") AND the X450AW Rolling Backpack with the rest of my photo gear. Getting through TSA security is a snap, and the advantage of having the rolling pack has made the multi-mile walks through terminals like Atlanta oh so much more painless!

The X450AW is very well designed. It includes a canvas covered cushioned pouch with shoulder strap for a laptop up to 15" that fits into the front zippered compartment. There are nifty little attention to detail features including key holders, flash card slots, and zippered pockets throughout. The system includes a unique tripod carrying base pocket that attaches to the outer bag that keeps one leg secure from slipping. It is removable when not carrying a tripod.

Inside, the separators are Lowepro classics.

As roomy as it gets, this big is huge! Surprisingly doesn't have as many accessories pockets as my smaller Tamrac 5587 Expedition 7X.
I wanted a bag that I could carry most of my main gear on the train, but because of back issues, I decided carrying my gear as a backpack wouldn't work anymore. I've been looking at this LowePro X450 and the X350 for better part of a year, but because of some upcoming travels, I decided to go ahead and make the purchase. The price has come down on the LowePro Backpacks so the price was right also, and with my Prime account the bag was here in only a few days.

Again this is a huge bag, and like others have said, it's spacious but bulky. The bulky part comes from trying to design a bag to hold the maximum amount of gear. I can hold my Canon 5d Mk III with a Canon 300 2.8L attached with Hood(flipped around), my Canon 7D, a Canon 70-200mm 2.8L and a Canon 24-70 2.8L and 2 flashes with room to spare, so when we all say spacious we mean it. This bag also comes with pockets lining the upper flap of the bag, and a single accessory pocket on the front left side of the big. Not a HUGE number of accessory pockets, at least not for a bag this size, but still has plenty of room for filters, batteries, and other camera needs. Plenty of buckles tighten up the bag, and hang things like your tripod or monopod. Because this version of the bag is the X450 it comes with roller wheels, so you can roll the big instead of having the need to carry it. The bag is also a backpack and comes with a 5 point adjustable pad, so you can carry it with some comfort. I can't see anyone hiking with this massive bag, but is perfect for carrying it on and off a train.
