The bag provides good amount of storage. I do strobist type lighting so I use it for storing my lighting stands and accessories. It comfortably holds (2) 8' Impact light stands, (1) larger Manfrotto tripod, (1) monopod, and (3) collapsible umbrellas. It can be carried by sturdy handles or by a shoulder bag, both work very well. The top opens up fully making loading and accessing equipment very easy. It is zippered with the zippers on both sides, the two sides are opened at the same time with a single strap. Sometimes I work from the back of my hatchback or in tight spaces, I can still easily access things. There is also a practical small window at the end where smaller items (ballhead, clamps...) can be accessed. Though I usually don't use this.
Material seem sturdy and the bag is well constructed except the zipper quality is weak. I had to return the bag once because the zipper seperated. The bag material, handles and carrying strap is very sturdy, difficult to understand why the zipper was made so weak.
I would recommend the product, good price and value but be careful when closing the zipper.

Use it for stands only

The shoulder straps are awkwardly placed. Inside, there's room for many stands but then again, that's it. I don't see how can you place other accessories and not be worried about the handling...Read complete review

The shoulder straps are awkwardly placed. Inside, there's room for many stands but then again, that's it. I don't see how can you place other accessories and not be worried about the handling of the bag. I don't think the term "soft padding" applies for the description of it. I owe another of Impact's bag which is much better because it includes Velcro for dividing sections. This one does not.

    Comments about Impact Light Kit Bag #3 - Holds 2 Monolights with Light Stands and Accessories:

    Its OK for the money though will be soon replacing it with something better made as it has already ripped along a seam (6 months of use).

    I was able to cram in 2 light stands, a monopod, tripod, 2 x small beauty dishes and a few other bits and pieces.

    Because of shipping to Fiji being so expensive I skimped on the bag. Shouldn't have!

    Solid bag.

    Comments about Impact Light Kit Bag #3 - Holds 2 Monolights with Light Stands and Accessories:

    Bought this bag for our light stands and speed lights. We have 3 light stands, 2 speed lights and accessories with room to spare. Build quality seems good. Hoping this will hold up to what we put it through.

    More Than Enough Room

        Comments about Impact Light Kit Bag #3 - Holds 2 Monolights with Light Stands and Accessories:

        This is a great bag for carrying light stands. It has quite a bit of room for a lot more than the two stands that it is advertised for. But just given the construction of the handles and shoulder strap I wouldn't put a lot of heavy things in it. Light stands typically are fairly low weight, but I would stay away from higher weight items.

        It's a Starter Case not anything specia

        By Ben

        from Philadelphia

        Comments about Impact Light Kit Bag #3 - Holds 2 Monolights with Light Stands and Accessories:

        The case fits all of my lights and stands, but its not the safest case. Things can slide around in it. It doesnt have any dividers which was a little disappointing. I am going to continue to use it till I come across something a little more solid. I may still use it for a tripod case since it can perfectly fit in it

          Love how its large enough that I can fit all my lighting equipment and it still has room for more tripods, umbrellas, bulbs etc…. I also like that it is padded so everything is safe.

                    I'm just starting to build my lighting kit - I currently have two light stands, two collapsible softboxes, two lightbulbs in boxes, and an extension cord in this bag, and there's still room for more. I wanted something that could fit what I have now but leave room for more gear in the future, so this bag was the perfect choice for me.

                    Great shape and easy accessible slots to access from multiple sides. I can actually fit my 3 light stands (from the SpectroLED Light kit), tripod, and boom pole in the bag. I worry the meshy material may snag and not hold up over time because it seems to be of cheaper quality. But for what I do I think it will do just fine.

                      depends how you use this bag, it came with a lowel lighting kit that i purchased and i would need to add some padding to protect my gear in it since there is a lot of wiggle room with what came with it. if youre using it to just maybe carry light stands, umbrellas or softboxes, this is probably fine.

                      Great bag for the price. Actually holds three of my monolights and the power cords. Wouldn't recommend throwing the bag around too much since it doesn't have a whole lot of padding but it should hold up in a typical tranport environment.

                              Comments about Impact Light Kit Bag #3 - Holds 2 Monolights with Light Stands and Accessories:

                              Good, sizable bag for lightweight monolight stands and accessories. Can hold more than 2 stands, but it soft and isn't ideal for checked baggage. (It can be checked, you have to cross your fingers that the airline is careful.) Mine made it through 2 checked legs no problem, but I reinforced the inside with some filling.
