      I use these stands to hold Nikon SB (24 - 28) speed lights and White Lightning X800 strobes for off camera lighting.

      The build quality is awesome as usual with Manfrotto and these stands have small features that make them great in comparison to other lightweight stands.

      I love the size of the extension tighteners, they're large and easy to make quick adjustments in height when needed. A small, but crucial feature I love in these stands compared to say a cheaper "Impact" brand of stands.

      I guess my only complaint would be that I always want my equipment as light as possible for travel, but at 2.2 lbs I think they're very portable and easy to carry.

      The best option for a lightweight stand if you do not need anything over 6.5' !

      The product is very light and works greatly but it cannot be used much for outdoor portraits if you do not have an assistant! Wind can easily blow it away.

        Great for light-weight lights (Omni, VIP, etc.) and reflector boards (Lowel lightflector). Basic stand that's well made. Prefer it to Lowel equivalent, folds well, solid wingnuts lock each section with confidence.

            Comments about Manfrotto 366B Basic Black Light Stand - 6.4' (1.9m):

            I bought this upon the recommendation of a B & H chat. My requirements were that it should work with the Westcott softbox and u-light I just bought. Did not have to be over 5 feet tall and did not need to nest as I did not travel. I also wanted nice quality. The Manfrotto was great and met my needs but it is a bit light in weight, but it is absolutely secure and perfect for it's purpose and the light and softbox it is used with. I just would have purchased one a little heavier as I would like it a bit more. But just my personal preference.

                  Sturdy, light weight & well constructed. Will easily hold a small flash with reflector or umbrella attachment. I'm also using it as part of my backdrop system (for small, 5 foot wide backdrops) and it works great.

                    Sometimes my professional monolights and their stands are overkill. I need to travel lightly and use small on-camera flash units (off camera!). I wanted 2 light stands that would be lightweight enough to carry in a bag on my shoulder with an umbrella or two. This light stand is perfect for this!

                            I was really impressed on the weight of this stand. My speedlight is actually heavier then the stand. Hold speedlight, triggers, adapter, and 45' umbrella no problem. Would not suggest with heavier monolights. great for a speedlight though.

                              Comments about Manfrotto 366B Basic Black Light Stand - 6.4' (1.9m):

                              I use these stands to hold Nikon SB (24 - 28) speed lights and White Lightning X800 strobes for off camera lighting.

                              The build quality is awesome as usual with Manfrotto and these stands have small features that make them great in comparison to other lightweight stands.

                              I love the size of the extension tighteners, they're large and easy to make quick adjustments in height when needed. A small, but crucial feature I love in these stands compared to say a cheaper "Impact" brand of stands.

                              I guess my only complaint would be that I always want my equipment as light as possible for travel, but at 2.2 lbs I think they're very portable and easy to carry.

                              The best option for a lightweight stand if you do not need anything over 6.5' !

                                  i needed a small travel light stand that could fit in my travel case. the unit folds small enough around 19 inches.

                                  for the size it is solid and well built.

                                  it is not a substitute for as studio equipment.

                                    This well-made stand is useful for continuous lights, as well as "Speedlite" flash units, including with umbrellas. I use them with Speedlites and Pocket Wizards. With two or three stands and a transceiver on the camera, one can take flash entirely off-camera for greater shooting freedom. The short collapsed size makes them ideal for carrying to assignments. I have taller and shorter stands, but these are the first choice for general use.

                                      I use this stand to hold a small side light in my studio. There's really not much that can go wrong. The only problem with this stand is that the legs are 'sticky'- they don't open and shut easily. Fortunately I don't need to set it up and take it down a lot; otherwise it would be a pain.

                                        I've used this stand to hold my reflector holder and 32 inch reflector. The height seems high enough (6 ft.) especially when placing the reflector hold straight up and down.

                                        It seems to work well. The leg base is wide enough to support the 32 inch reflector and the reflector holder.

                                        The surprise was in the weight of the stand. It is very light. If you are looking for something light weight, this is it. Otherwise, select the next larger stand.

                                        Bottom line is .... it works.

                                          Stand is well made,easy to use and very light to carry around. Good for studio or flash gun in the field. Might work with heavy lights or umbrellas outdoors if weighted or tied down. A good compliment to my other stands.

                                              I choose this over the Manfrotto Nano only because of double maximun load and longer leg brace. It may be overkill just for a flash and umbrella, however, to me it seems more secure at the expense of just an extra 9'' inches closed length. It's still compact enough and worked great in the field so far. No regrets, once you get the hang of pulling the legs open with the right leverage, it's fast to set up.
