LoweProRollerx200Lowepro Pro Roller x200 AW ($313)
It’s the perfect combination of a photo backpack tucked inside of a roller shell. On small planes, instead of gate checking my gear, I pull out the backpack and send the empty roller shell underneath. The backpack slips right into the overhead of the smallest planes even with a laptop in the pocket on top.

Sony Sling BagSony Sling Bag Carrying Case
My favorite walk-around bag is Sony’s LCS-SB1 sling bag carrying case. It’s a slim, body-hugging bag that doesn’t scream, “Steal me!” Although it weighs virtually nothing, it holds a lot. It can fit everything I need for a day out shooting; even a 70-400mm lens with the LA-EA4 fits neatly inside.

Sony-LCS-BP3-backpackSony LCS-BP3 Backpack
This backpack holds up to three mirrorless bodies and four or five lenses plus a 15″ laptop, making it great for most of my travel needs for the past few years. While it might be a bit large for the A7/A7R and a few lenses, I like to pack as few bags as possible when traveling, and the laptop compartment and extra space allows me to pack chargers, cords, and hard drives.

Strobe Cases


Tenba-AT-45V-Air-CaseTenba AT-45V ATA Air Case
These are my favorite cases for strobe pack and heads. I’ve got half a dozen of these and they really hold up to the rigors of air travel. The interior is padded with the same thick foam that’s used in football helmets so it deadens the any concussions that baggage handlers might apply.
