  • Review: Vanguard Xcenior 41T Wheeled Camera Bag.

    I have been looking for a good, sturdy camera bag for travel since I did the wedding in Thailand last year. This Vanguard 41T ticks all of the boxes for me.

    It looks fantastic and holds loads!

    Takes two Pro camera bodies, 4 to 6 lenses (depending on size of lenses of course), tripod (externally), flash, laptop

    PROS
    1. Fits two pro bodies as well as up to six lenses
    2. Great and easy to wheel
    3. Very protective of gear
    4. Insert can be removed if you want to use it as a normal (non camera carrying) bag
    5. Looks great, yet doesn't scream "cameras in here!!"
    6. Loads of features that include:
    Large zippered front pocket
    pockets for memory cards
    reconfigurable insert to suit gear
    insert completely removable
    bonus combination lock
    inside, padded pocket for iPad/12inch laptop
    perfect size for carry on luggage for flights
    and so much more

    CONS
    1. Weight of bag without gear is 3.95kilos. When you consider some airlines only let you take on 7kg as cabin luggage - doesn't leave you much to play with!
