    Great, great light stand bag. I can fit two long and heavy light stands with umbrella adapters attached, manfrotto tripod + head, and three smaller light stands. In addition, I can fit clamps, speedlights, batteries, and other miscellaneous items in the inside and outside pouches.

    When weighted down with a lot of gear, the padded handle could be slightly more comfortable I suppose, but that's being very picky. Aside from that, I don't like the tying down method inside the bag. I think the Tamrac clips which are advertised as a related item might be more helpful for keeping your stands secure. My only other complaint is that because of the bag's length, it really is best suited for longer stands. If I'm going on a job and only need my smaller stands, taking this is unnecessary.

    But it's a wonderful bag, the build construction is very solid. I think it's attractive, too, as light stand bags go. Get it if you need the length. 5/5 stars.

    Sturdy case. I purchaed as part of a bundled kit with 3 light stands. The stand fit perfectly, as well as a few umbrellas. I wish the bag was a couple of inches larger, I have an umbrella/ fash shoe combo. holder mounted to the top of the stands......... difficult to fit, unless I rotate the top of the holder to a 90 degree angle.

    Comments about Hakuba PSTC 400 Stand Case:

    Great bag for cheap. Lightweight and does the job. But after 2 multi-leg international trips, the bag is no longer useable. First thing that went was the side pocket got a hole burned in it from the baggage conveyor belt. Still useable, but not for small objects that could fall out. And most recently, the base stitching gave way at one end. The pull from the shoulder strap proved too much. Good value, but if you can swing it, put the money towards a better bag.

        It's quite a big bag, but I bought it as a set with 2 Impact stands. When I received it, it made sense why it so big because the Impact stands were just as big when collapsed.

        Comments about Hakuba PSTC 400 Stand Case:

        I generally like this case but it needs some sort of divider. Or a pocket of some sort to slide umbrellas into. The tie downs are pretty much useless. Who has time on a busy wedding day to mess with those. If you don't mind all your stands and umbrellas and even your tripod piled onto each other than this bag will work very well. That being said I haven't seen a case with an adequate design to keep your stands from rubbing on each other or your tripod.

          I needed a travel bag for my light stands and this is the bag I bought. I got three light stands and four umbrellas in it and there's room to spare. I also like the straps inside that keep stands from shifting around. Really nice bag.

                I've loaded a ridiculous amount of gear in this bag without ever feeling like it was going to fail me. Two 30" c-stands with turtle bases, two 20" grip arms, a baby boom and three umbrellas. Topped out at 50 pounds. The only downside is that the bag tapers from one end to the other which can make it difficult to balance the load.

                  Was looking for a location carry bag for a simple set up - 46" stand, Alien Bee, Vagabond Mini, umbrella and soft box - that was also padded for protection from baggage handlers travel by plane. The Hakuba was just the right size. Not too big yet not too small. Lightweight and durable so far as I've put it to the test on several trips and all my gear is in tact despite a number of airport transfers.

                        I purchased this case last minute (trust me its a theme in my life) to transport extra light stands to a site. I expected it to fall apart very quickly for the price, but the case is very durable.

                        I will probably be buying another as my first (More Expensive) bag has just split the zipper...

                        Very high quality bag. It easily holds my boom and light stand, and I could probably fit a third if I needed to. The padded sides are great and very protective, and the inner straps help keep the stands in place. It's a LITTLE big for what I need, as I'm just starting out with equipment, but I have a feeling I'll appreciate that later. Overall great product

                          This bag has been a lifesaver for me as I've was carrying around stands without a bag for almost a year to locations. Currently I have 5 stands stored in this bag plus a monopod and some backdrop poles that I can add to my C-stands. I wouldn't recommend checking it in for an airline flight but it'll hold up in vehicle transport.

                            When I purchased this item I couldn't find a review to actually tell me how many light stands this case could actually hold, I did read the measurements and get a ball park idea of how big it was, but when I actually put two of my light stands inside the case and expected this case to actually be full, we'll I was shocked to see that I could probably put two more light stands inside it. The quality of this case is great with a very durable feel to it, plenty of little storage compartments for tools and umbrella holders or whatever kind of head you may have. This case seems like it will last a very long time and will probably go through light stands faster then the case. Great case for the money!

                                I'm very happy with this bag, it's much sturdier than my last bag and gets the job done.

                                  I bought this PSTC 400 stand case by Hakuba because I was tired of throwing my light stands in the back of the car and sweating about getting them all scratched up. This case is very good quality material. I was worried about one reviewer who said the zippers broke the first time he used the bag. But, I've found the zippers to be plenty robust and I've had no problem with them at all. I can fit all three of my light stands into the bag with room for a few accessories as well. It's great to be able to grab just one bag instead of fooling around with all the individual stands. This bag would work well for larger tripods, boom arms and other long, thin items as well.

                                  I have been a photo assistant & photographer for 3 year now and have worked with a variety of gear. The most popular bags I have worked with are Temba bags and cases and those are really great. The Hakuba is well made and seems comparable to a Temba for a lot less money. Only time will tell if it holds up as well but for now I am happy! I plan to get another one soon. I was able to fit 4 large stands & 1 small stand as well as a few modifiers. I plan to buy a second to hold my tripod and other soft boxes.

                                    I picked this up for smaller jobs. It fits a beefy a Wescott boom, and two kit stands. It's snug but it's just what I needed. It's pretty nicely padded but it's a car bag for sure.

                                    Great length - long enough for telescoping 9 foot stand. Using it for stands umbrellas etc. Has replaced several stand cases for me, everything fits in this one.
