Manfrotto launches Pro Light Reloader 55 carry-on roller case for kit-heavy travelers
Bag and accessory manufacturer Manfrotto has announced a new roller case that has enough space for three DSLR bodies and eight lenses, which is designed to meet carry-on limits for most airlines. The Pro Light Reloader 55 is suitable for stills and video equipment and can hold a gripped DSLR with a 400mm F2.8 lens still attached and can also be re-arranged to fit lights.
The external 55 x 35 x 23cm/21.65 x 13.78 x 9.06in dimensions are said to make the case acceptable on 'most' airlines as cabin baggage and the bag with its dividers weighs just under 11lb. A fold-away rain protector is included and the rip-stop nylon of the outer has been coated to make it water repellent. Internal dividers are adjustable and Manfrotto has included laptop and tablet pouches that are separate from the main kit compartment so that they can be taken out without having to open the whole case.
The Pro Light Reloaded has large user-changeable wheels and will retail at $359.99/299.95

Manfrotto, world leader in the photography, imaging equipment and accessories industry, presents the Pro Light Reloader – 55 Photo Roller bag, the new carry-on size camera roller designed to give professional photographers and videographers a highly protective, comfortable and stylish bag to travel and work with.
The Manfrotto Pro Light Reloader-55 is built to carry typical pro DSLR camera sets (e.g. 3 bodies with 8 lenses), super-tele DSLR sets (e.g. 1 body with 400mm f/2.8 lens attached and 3 more lenses) & camcorder with lighting set (e.g. disassembled Canon C100 with 2 light kits).

The low profile design handle securely holds the bag, leaving more space for the kit. Inside the fully customizable Manfrotto Camera Protection System dividers provide shock absorption and vibration reduction with all configurations - from full day photo or video shoots to intercontinental assignments – or a personal photography adventure on the go.
The outside of the bag is made of high quality, water-repellent Pro Light Rip-Stop nylon fabric, ensuring reliable protection from external shock & extreme weather conditions.
The corners & bottom of the bag are carefully designed to resist wear. Large 84mm wheels ensure comfort and extensive mileage, and users can easily replace them when needed. A built-in TSA-approved combination zipper lock ensures a hassle-free travel experience through TSA partner airports.
The Pro Light Reloader-55 features independent padded pockets for 17” laptop & 10” tablet outside the equipment compartment, so they can quickly be taken out at security without opening the main zipper. The bag also carries a tripod and comes with a rain cover to keep its contents dry in the rainy season.
The Pro Light Reloader 55 is priced at £299.95.
