    This bag suits the purpose.. I needed a bag for my 3 Impact 300w Qualite lights, stands, and umbrellas.. I ordered this bag online Saturday night and it arrived Wednesday, which was pretty quick to me.. Everything fit perfectly! 3 lights on top, and there's a secret compartment by the pull handle, unzip that and place your 3 stands in there under the lights.. I used the netted zipper compartment for my umbrellas... Plus it has extra pockets for other supplies you may need on your shoot.. The wheels are a little small but it still rolls ok.. It does tend to tip over.. The bag is heavy, but durable, I feel confident my lights are safe.. Not bad looking either...

        The price compared to other light cases is good. The downside is the case is not very durable. I purchased a few of these for my staff and their Arri lights. Unfortunately, they can't handle the daily beatings of a news photographer. The wheels and metal back frame/handle don't last long. If you want to go with something more durable, you'll spend much more money for an even heavier case. I wished there was a better option in this type of case.

          I bought this case to store the two monolight kits I just purchased. There is plenty of room for the two heads, two light stands, softboxes (when they are broken down)and cables. There is additional room for one more head and all of its suppleys. The wheels make it more manageable to move everything around.

              Just a poor design. There are no handles on the ends, just straps over
              the top. So in the car there's nothing to pull on to slide it out of the trunk. The wheels aren't reinforced so they are tilting out a little and they are close
              together. So the bag tips easily. The pull handle isn't locked when
              it's extended so if u need to push the bag the handle goes in. I only have 3 lights in it and the velcro doesn't seem to want to stay in place. The walls are also poorly reinforced. It's inexpensive... but I got what I paid for.

              I sometimes get asked to shoot, little "run and guns" or mini interview/talking heads in Manhattan, so I needed a small portable kit that holds the essentials and is easy to transport! This is it. I love the double decker set-up and the extra pockets (inside and out) This case holds 2 (or 3 small) light heads, my chimera (in the side pocket) 2 or 3 Matthews reverse stands, a small tripod, cables, dimmers, spares, etc.So with my camera kit in a Pelican case, and wheeling the rest behind me, I am good to go!I would give 5 stars, if the wheels were set a little wider apart for better stability. BUT all in all a great case for the money.

                  I've seen others complain about the weight of this case. I expect a sturdy case to have some heft and this case is right in line with those expectations. The handle extends easily. The wheels are a little small, but do their job. The storage for the light stands is in a lower compartment (under the lights) and is accessible from a zippered flap by the extending handle. I find this arrangement convenient and a great solution to the organization of a lighting case.
                  I would recommend making sure the velcro dividers in the case are well affixed before lifting the case up on end. I didn't and my lights shifted. Nothing was damaged and I replaced the dividers, made sure they were secure and have no further issues. Yes, that was user error.

                  The bag is heavy. What do you want? A strong well built case, right? Good size. It will fit Speedotron 3 lights kit and all accessories. Not enough room for the power pack and too short for light stand. Good value.

                        This is a great rolling case. I use it when I go on photo shoots outdoors. The bag holds several light stands, lights, wires and cables. It really holds a lot of equipment. I didn't give it five stars because the wheels should be bigger or wider. When you make turns sometimes it turns on it's side. The padding will protect the equipment but this could be annoying to some. This is still a great deal.

                        I'm a dainty girl... sorta. I don't own a car, and its tiring to haul bags of heavy equipment with my flimsy arms around on the bus and subway. When I saw this bag online I was super excited that I could finally pull my equipment like my luggage.

                        The good: I could pull it like my luggage. It's strong, and sturdy.

                        BUT because of its sturdy construction, its a tad on the heavy side. So when you add equipment to it, it gets really really heavy.
                        Another con is the really small wheels, which doesn't help with balancing the weight when you roll around.

                        Another thing I like is that the lightstands & umbrella can go in a separate zippered compartment. When you stand the bag up, you can easily access the lightstands without unzipping the main compartment and digging through your other equiptment.

                            This case is nearly perfect. It fits my two 12" and one 8" hot lights, plus three light stands and three umbrellas with room for extra extension cords left over.

                            The only improvements it could use are a lock to keep the roller handle up and some sliders near the wheels to aid in rolling up stairs (though with strobes I'd imagine you would want to carry them up any stairs).

                            Overall a great bag and the right choice for my needs.

                                I use this to transport my lights and light modifiers. it can hold 3 white lighting or three calumets with not problem with all the light modifiers i need. i always use a separate case for extension cords and other things that i need. the case is well put together. and lighter that most other cases i found some that where 30lbs but can survive more that what i would do to it. over all it is a good product for what it is designed.

                                  Well-made and durable. Accommodates all equipment perfectly, with plenty of room for additional supplies.

                                  Only comment: Retaining straps for lamps, although unnecessary, are positioned such that they have no obvious purpose.

                                        I'm a professional photographer and purchased this product to carry Alien Bees, light stands, electrical, etc. However it was simply too heavy. At 17 pounds empty, by the time it was loaded I couldn't pick it up.
