VEO SELECT Roller Bags to Backpacks For Larger Kits

If you're planning on travelling abroad, then a roller case that is cabin luggage compatible is a real asset. It removes the strain of carrying a larger, heavier camera kit as you tow it round the airport or train station, with the knowledge that you can take your valuable kit safely into the aircraft cabin, rather than leave it to the challenges of the hold. 

The problem arises when you get to your destination, and you need to cover terrain that isn't designed for towing a roller case. Normally you'd have to decant the kit you need for the day into another bag that you've managed to pack.  This is normally as smaller bag, which means you'll probably have to compromise on the kit you're able to take on that day's trip.

The VEO Select 55BT is a great alternative:

  • It can carry a huge load, including 2 pro DSLR/mirrorless cameras, 5-6 lenses (up to 300mm f/2.8), a flash unit, a 13" laptop and a tripod;
  • For the airline terminal, it comes with four wheels and a robust double bar handle, that's also ideal for slipping a laptop bag over;
  • It's hand luggage compatible with major airlines*, so you can take it with you into the cabin for safety;
  • When needed, it converts to a backpack in seconds, so no need to leave kit behind;
  • To protect your valuable kit from the lumps and bumps of real life, this roller backpack is well padded, with extra tall wheels and a reinforced base;
  • To protect your kit from the damp it is manufactured with water resistant material, but also includes a seam sealed rain cover.

There is also a 2-wheel version due September 2020. More details to follow!
