Must-Have Travel Gear
A selection of mobile gear that makes photography on the road easier
From camping in the wilderness and hiking mountain trails, to first-class seating and four-star hotels, everyone's idea of what makes a memorable trip is different. Wherever you're traveling, reaching that destination can be an arduous journey, especially when you're intending to shoot.
Hauling heavy, cumbersome equipment can not only ruin your back, but your good time-and good photos. The PCPhoto editors have compiled a list of travel gear that can work on just about every type of trip—to lighten the load, keep you comfortable and free up frustrations so you can relax and take better pictures.
Lowepro Rolling Computrekker Plus AW
On a big trip, the last thing you want is to be leaving key elements of your gear behind because you ran out of space. The Lowepro Rolling CompuTrekker Plus AW frees you from that potential problem, thanks to its massive capacity. The 13x5.5x16.3-inch interior dimensions are ample for a complete high-end D-SLR outfit, and it fits within airline carry-on requirements. A padded compartment holds a laptop computer (with up to a 15.4-inch screen) that can be easily accessed during check-in or as you're shooting in the field. A built-in memory card pouch keeps your storage media protected and organized, and the AW cover protects all of your gear in the event of rain. List Price: $349.
