    I use this stand sack to carry lighting equipment. It does the job. It doesn't protect your equipment but I wasn't expecting that from a stand sack. The strap isn't comfortable.

    Comments about Lightware C6150 Stand Sack:

    I use for three large stands, with some room to spare. The zipper goes all the way to the bottom on one end. I kind of wish it didn't. Because of this, you have to close it all of the way every time you use it. Also, there is only one zipper pull. Construction quality is very good.

        The bag is very large and well made. I like that one side has a hard surface because I have had problems in the past with other bags where a light stand causes tearing to start from the pressure on the end of it.

          Comments about Lightware C6150 Stand Sack:

          As a lot of other people have said already, this is a big durable and utilitarian bag. Perfect for a lot of stands and miscellaneous grip gear.

          My only complaint would be that the handles aren't padded. Unlike a lot of other bags you can actually sling this one over your shoulder and when it's loaded up, the handles/straps dig in. Not really much of a complaint.

          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.

            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?

                      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.

                          Comments about Lightware C6150 Stand Sack:

                          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.
