Carry On Friendly - Our roller is sized to meet most airline carry-on requirements. Since carry-on dimensions vary by airplane size and style, and regulations are always changing, we recommend checking with your airline before flight.
Doctor Bag-Style Opening - The roller has a single YKK zipper running down the middle, and when unzipped, the opening retracts and exposes the main compartment. It is very practical for accessing gear when shooting out of the roller, as well as for packing and unpacking. The doctor opening allows the bag to maintain a small footprint whether open or closed, unlike a traditional luggage door-style opening that doubles a case’s footprint when opened.
Expandable Volume - Not every mission involves the overhead compartment. Some days are local and require a little more carry volume. The Carry-On roller is built with an expandable upper section that increases the main compartment volume on demand.
Core Unit Modular Camera Insert System - As with the Explore 40 and Explore 60 backpacks, the Carry On Roller works with Shimoda’s modular Core Unit camera inserts. Inserts can easily be transferred from roller to backpack, and they can be combined to create multiple configurations to satisfy numerous gear carrying needs.
Lightweight Water-Resistant Materials - A nylon Carbonate Ether resin-coated shell features a unique double-sided application process that provides incredible water resistance from exterior water pressure. With two coatings of Carbonate Ether and high-density ripstop nylon, the shell delivers unsurpassed water repellency and durability. These advanced coatings allow the use of much lighter-core materials for both the exterior shell and interior lining, which keeps the bag lightweight without sacrificing on durability or all-weather protection.
Side Panel Pockets - Each side of the bag features a full-length zippered pocket. The right side has an interior passport pocket located in an easy to reach area. The left side includes a security strap to secure a tripod.
YKK® Zippers - We use durable YKK zippers for primary access points to exterior pockets and the main compartment to ensure years of reliable use.
80mm High-Performance Wheels - Large 80mm shock-absorbing wheels work well over rugged terrain, yet they remain smooth and quiet when rolling through airports and city streets. Wheels are user-replaceable if they get damaged or worn out through heavy use.
Genuine Full-Grain Leather Zipper Pulls and Handles - Leather has long-lasting durability because it is flexible and soft. When compared with traditional plastic or metal zipper pulls, leather eliminates the potential of breakage with car doors and rocks, or even being stepped on by hard soled boots. Leather pulls also add a refined element of style.
