Lowepro refreshes rolling camera bags, largest model fits most of a human body

Lowepro has updated its line of extra large roller bags, with the Pro Roller x-series AW. Available in three sizes, internal volumes range from 25 to 49 liters. By our calculations, the largest bag has sufficient internal volume to fit 0.74 standard human bodies, at least enough for a moderately-sized torso.
In all seriousness, LowePro makes some solid gear and these bags look to be a good solution for transporting large amounts of high end equipment. All three are substantially padded roller bags, with "Lowepro's patent-pending MaxFit System™ of adjustable, interior dividers." They have a hardshell exterior, water-protection, and clear internal pockets for finding items easily. All three also have TSA approved locks, a major advantage when flying in the US.
The smallest x100 model ($369.99) has space for "1-2 Pro DSLRs, 4-6 lenses (up to 400mm), accessories and small personal items, and up to a 15" laptop", and the x200 ($399.99) bumps that to "1-2 Pro DSLRs with grip, 6-8 lenses (up to 600mm), accessories and small personal items, and up to a 17" laptop." Both of those models are also small enough to fit carry-on baggage restrictions (at least in the US).
If you're comfortable checking your gear, then there's the $479.99 Pro Roller x300 AW, with space for a whopping "1-2 Pro DSLRs with grip, 8-10 lenses (up to 600mm), accessories and small personal items, and up to a 17" laptop." If that's still not large enough, you might just have to switch over to Think Tank, good for roughly 0.92 standard human bodies.
