The Lowepro Pro Runner x450 AW is a rolling bag / backpack hybrid with solid protection and a large capacity this is a big bag and is ideal for the Pro Photographer or travelling Photographer with a lot of gear.
The Pro Runner x450 AW has many many features we will start with the front of the bag. The front of the bag is double zipped which gives you access to the massive main compartment but more on that later. On the front of the main flap is double zipped access to the notebook compartment.
Inside the large notebook compartment which measures 28.5 x 4 x 38.8 cm (and is genorously deep for a flap pocket) is a large flat open pocket for a laptop. A laptop sleeve and strap is included so your laptop can be carried seperatly if required.
A set of smaller open divided pockets are on the front of the large pocket with 1 flap over velcroed pocket this whole compartment is also a great place to put your tablet along with pens, notepads, prints etc etc
On the very front of the bag is a cross bag securing strap and 2 tripod loops with cam lock buckles a removable tripod holder fits in the bottom so the tripod has something to sit on. There is also another small side opening flat pocket on this section of the bag.
Now we move to the inside flap of the main compartment the top 3/4 feature 2 vertical zipped flap pockets one large one small again useful for flat items at the foot of these pockets are a pair of the usual Lowepro flapped and velco secured memory card pockets and below the memory card pockets is yet another flat zipped pocket.
Now we move into the big main compartment with internal dimensions of 35.5 x 32 x 51.5 cm there are 2 long adjustable dividers and 10 small dividers to craft your own unique compartments.
The full length of the bag will take a DSLR with grip and a 300mm lens attached or 2 DSLR’s with grip’s and standard sized lenses attached (one at each end) with room down the sides for multiple lenses and flashes.
The main compartment is big enough for 2 DSLR’s with grips, flashes and all the lenses you likely own along with various accessories, it really is huge and with the dozen padded dividers you can be sure all your gear will be properly seperated and protected.
Underneath the main compartment on the back of the Lowepro Pro Runner is another compartment this compartment is accessed throung a side zip and is large enough to store a large tablet or a 17 inch laptop.
The back of the bag is mesh padded and has a removable back pack harness with clippable belt, a cross body clip is also provided to keep the straps secure. The backpack harness is easily removable so the bag can be converted from backpack to rolling in seconds.
The wheels are at the bottom (and are easily replaceable if you ever wear them out) and at the top is a telescopic handle for pulling your bag along.
Hand carrying handles are positioned at the top and side of the Pro Runner on the opposite side of the bag are sliplock carrying loops for the attachment of other equipment pouches if nessecary and an open mesh pocket (ideal for drinks).
Lastly the Pro Runner is finished with the All Weather AW Cover which can be slipped out of a discreet pocket from the bottom to cover the entire case ensuring complete weather protection.
The Pro Runner is a great bag if you have a lot of gear literally everything you need gear wise will fit in there! the bag is also ideal for carrying through airports.
The only disadvantage of this bag is because of the dimensions and shape it’s not the most comfortable bag to carry round on your back all day long but really with a bag like this you should only have it on your back when absoloutely nessecary the rest of the time it should simply be pulled.
