    Taking this stand for what its designed to do (hot shoe strobes, portability), its made perfectly. It's very lightweight, folds up remarkably small and has amazing height. Using it on location and in a variety of settings, I've found the feet work very well, as you can set them in a variety of configurations to use from flat surfaces to rocky terrain to narrow spaces.

    This review is not based on quality. I returned this product because it didn't include mounting hardware, and I've never seen that with a light stand before. Not going to go searching for hardware when I can just buy an equivalent stand that comes with it! What a pain - glad I tested it out before taking it on a shoot!

        This is a great compact stand.It screams quality and style It's very sturdy. I like the extended legs. They may get into someone's way at a venue if you are an event photographer, but you can always make the footprint smaller. I use it with my Canon flashes with a softbox or an umbrella and my Cheetah C-360 flash with various light modifiers. I even used it with my Einstein (Paul Buff) monolight and an umbrella a couple of times and it worked just fine. I wouldn't put any heavy modifiers on top though.
        I wish it came with a couple of various studs (male-female)

          I love using my Lowel light kit and I've wanted an extra stand for a while. This fits in my soft bag and is a great addition to my one-man-crew package. The stands are light and compact, but tough and stable.

            Very sturdy and well made stand for its size, and also very portable and light. I put one or two of these with an omni and pro light in a small duffel with some diffusion and I have a bare bones portable interview light kit that I can take on the subway.

                Very good, a little heavier than I have aluminum, but small (collected) and then opening comes at a good height, the only drawback (which can be a pro) is that the legs being open cover much space and for social photography can bother even backfire (and other trips)

                      Small, Lightweight, Durable. I know the pro-sumer place that Lowell has a foothold on, but this stand finds use in my Pro Kit. Easily holds a 650 watt Fresnell. Packs down small and lightweight in a light case.

                      What more can I say. I just wish it didn;t cost 1/2 of what a real Matthews C-stand sells for.

                        Easy to use, attaches securely to the light stand and easily and securely holds the reflector with a clip.

                        Imagine this...

                        You're shooting an interview and you wanna put a light behind a person sitting in a chair, so that you can light the background behind them.

                        This is THE lighting stand for the job. It is low, man, so low.

                        For height, yeah it gets up there, but loses stability as you go up due to the thin tubes and light weight. Easy fix, use that big stand you've got in your kit.

                        I keep this guy in the kit for effect lighting and special scenarios. And I love it. Not sure what else could even do the job.

                          I only need it to hold the tota light and an umbrella. It breaks down and goes up fast.

                            I use it to support an SB-800 and it fits in places regular light stands won't fit. It seems sturdy enough and time will tell how it holds up but seems to be really good at this point.

                                Love this light stand. Very well function. Use for outdoor. And wide leg helps to prevent the winds. Lightweight and strong enough for flash.

                                  These are great stands. Very professional looking (nice color combo and finish), compact yet extend very high. The Lowel case is great too. Perfect set up for the Strobist!

                                      I needed a small inexpensive stand to fit in a fairly small light kit for travel. I would not recomend putting heavy lights on it, but to hold a small light or flexfill its fine.
