International 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. The Carry-On roller will ensure your gear makes it on board safely (with you) and remains protected from not only bumps but also from dishonest strangers.
The Carry-On Roller is designed to work seamlessly with the rest of the Shimoda system’s backpacks, Core Units and Accessory Cases. There is no other bag system that enables an entire cine camera system to be transferred from a roller to a backpack in seconds.
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.
Side Panel Pockets
Each side of the bag features a full-length zippered pocket. One side is fitted with a travel document and phone sleeve and the other side fits larger accessories like a water bottle. Both sides have a compression strap so you can hold a medium-sized tripod if needed.
Carbonate-Coated, Water-Repellant Materials
Our Carry-On Roller shares the same lightweight, water-resistant, Carbonate PU-coated ripstop nylon as our backpack line. This ensures the same reliable and consistent quality and performance for both travel and mountain scenarios. They also make a handsome match when traveling.
100mm High-Performance Wheels
Large 100mm 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.
We use durable YKK zippers for primary access points to exterior pockets and the main compartment to ensure years of reliable use.
