Comments about Lightware C6150 Stand Sack:

Great bag, can hold up to a beating. Perhaps a little spendy for it is in essence a large sack. The zipper does have a way to stay securely closed, so for airline travel it is iffy.

Comments about Lightware C6150 Stand Sack:

I didn't exactly break out the tape measure when I bought this bag, but it is huge. Which is great for me. I would actually consider keeping tripods/light stands in individual cases inside of this bag since it is so big, and doesn't offer a whole lot of protection.

    Comments about Lightware C6150 Stand Sack:

    I've had this light stand bag for almost a year and it's still in great shape. It holds 5 large light stands, 2 small light stands, and 2 short stools with room to spare. The straps make it easy to carry, although I wish that they hadn't used a rectangular bracket where the straps meet the bag. The strap material slides into the higher corner of the bracket and gets all bunched up. I keep expecting the bracket to break from all the pressure on that one corner but so far it hasn't.

    Comments about Lightware C6150 Stand Sack:

    I am a pro shooter that works on location a lot. This bag was bought to replace another unpadded stand-bag.

    Owning another Lightware bag (Lightware C6052 52" Cargo Case, Padded (Black)) I had high expectations for this one. After taking it on-location a few times I can say that I am very happy with this construction of this bag. It has strong handles, a lined interior to help protect against moisture, a heavy duty zipper that stands up against the weight you I put in it, and a reinforced bottom-end that will help guard against cuts and everyday wear and tear when I stand the bag up. It is so spacious that it is very easy to over pack making it very heavy, but that in itself is a bonus - you can fit an huge amount of gear in it. Heavy duty and lightweight light stands, floor stands, stingers, softboxes, tripods, mini booms, speedrings...it will hold a lot. Another bonus is that it folds up fairly small if I want to store or travel with it empty.

    It is an unpadded bag with no pockets so you have to be well organized with how you pack your gear and protect it during transport but it is a very well made and I am very pleased with.

              Lightware has been around about as long as I have in photography (over 25 yrs now). This was purchased to carry my growing light stand inventory and boom arm for location shooting. Plenty of room for what I need to shoot on location. Well made. What else do you need?

                  I was looking for a pretty big and long bag to hold two light stands. Well, this thing holds two light stands, a backdrop kit (2 stands + 4 poles), plus a stand for my photobooth. There's a lot of space left over for at least another light stand or two.

                    Comments about Lightware C6150 Stand Sack:

                    As a freelance Director of Photography, this bag finally allows me to put all of my light stands and tripod into one bag which makes loading in and out of locations and storage a stress-free experience. No more loose stands falling off the top of my gear cart! This large, rugged bag conveniently zips open all the way back on one end and has a reinforced bottom on the other end. This was one of the only bags that was long enough to contain all of my stands, a boom pole, and full length c-stand arm as well as having the volume to contain all of my stands.

                    I highly recommend this bag to anyone with a small light kit (5 - 7 stands)

                      I was able to fit 2 heavy duty stands, 2 accent light stands and my boom pole into this handy bag and still have room for more. If you have lots of stands to carry on location, this one is great if you're on a budget.

                        A well made bag with strong handles and straps. I got it to fit my larger Manfrotto 007 light stands in. It easily holds 4 of these stands, umbrellas, clamps and some leads. The zip that opens right to the base of the bag on one end makes it easy to get long stands in and out. When I'm not using the bag it folds up quiet small and is easily stored.

                            No inner padding - this was made to store stands that can take a beating. I wouldn't recommend using it to store your tripod.

                            Very large and can hold a lot of stands.

                            Strap makes it good to haul around short distances, but not something you would use if you're constantly on the move.

                              I use this to carry two lightstands with mono lights mounted, a 3rd lightstand and a boom arm. All fit comfortably and it's easy to carry. I've had the bag a couple of years and it's held up very well. No defects.

                              It's not padded so you should use it for durable items only.

                                Great design. Roomy enough for 8 or so medium duty stands with 1 inch diameter aluminum legs. You could probably fit more pick stands in the bag than what the handles could handle. Zipper is sturdy enough, and straps are very sturdy. All around good stand bag. Although, because it doesn't have two zippers, I wouldn't fly with it.

                                    I carry all my light stands, tripod, monopod, umbrellas, etc in this bag. Very sturdy and well made.

                                      Huge size, sturdy heavy fabric, great reinforced bottom, wonderfully industrial zipper. Extremely light when empty and easily folds/crumples to store out of sight in small places. Worth every penny!

                                        Exactly what I was looking for. Large enough for my stands and umbrellas, and very heavy duty.
