    I was a bit concerned since there were no other reviews on B&H on this bag and doubly concerned after reading so many negative reviews on other bags of similar price. Have no fear -- this is an awesome, well-made bag! First, it is huge -- not necessarily a good thing, though, because I was able to put so much of my lighting equipment in this bag that now I need a cart to carry it on location! (but it is still better than multiple bags, though)[note: guys may not have a problem, but I'm a female and not very strong :-)] What sold me on this bag was that the desription said it was padded -- that was a requirement; especially after reading other reviews that their bags were essentially limp duffle-bags. The padding is incredible! It keeps the bag in shape, but it is still flexible enough for 'expansion'. Another concern that I had was that it might be poorly constructed -- NOT! The zipper is heavy-duty as are the straps -- which has extra padding for lifting (you'll need it). My only concern about the quality and question whether it will hold up is the material in the inside that is designed to allow the velcro dividers to stick to it. I would recommend if you are going to use the dividers (I decided to instead use them as additional padding on the bottom and sides--but not that it needed it, but my gear just did not lend itself for dividers -- although at the time that I read it, it seemed like a great feature) is to make your decision where you want the dividers early on and keep them there. The velcro is so tough I would be concerned that in time it will tear the inner material that it sticks to, which seems a bit thin. The outer shell, on the other hand, is heavy duty and appears to be excellent quality and I have no doubt it will last many years -- unless you abuse your bags, then maybe it won't last that long. Overall, this is an awesome bag --and it looks sharp (better than the photo, in my opinion) and I would not hesitate to recommend it! I'm glad I took the chance. :-)

    Better than an Ikea bag

    It's not the most secure or protective way of hauling around lights, but it does the job. I carry 3 circular LEDs plus power cords, extensions and adapters, and everything fits comfortably,...Read complete review

      This arrived as part of a kit, but with all the room inside, I am able to fit others lights I purchased as well. I still have an empty pocket to fill when I get another 500W or 1K. Also holds my bulbs, and keeps my filters separated.

        Great bag. Fits more than I expected. Handles 3 lights with 3 light stands, 2 umbrellas, along with a boom arm no problem. It's got great compartments inside for all of your lighting accessories (gels, cables, etc)

          This bag is well padded and strong. It was designed very well to maximize protection and the ability to carry many items at once. I carry 2 Impact VSD160's, a Yongnuo 565EX Speedlite, 2 Impact air cushioned 8' light stands, 1 Impact Heavy Duty Air Cushioned 9.5' Light Stand, 2 Photogenic Eclipse 45" Umbrellas, 2 Impact 33" White shoot through umbrellas, a Powersync Transmitter, DC Receiver, AC Receiver, and a Yellow Jacket 6 plug metal surge protector, and there is still room for more! You will be pleased with this product!

            I carry a two point light kit as well as my tripod and microphone system in the bag. Plus there is still room for another light kit if I expand to a 3 point kit. IT's a great bag

                  This bag holds my 2 lightstands, a tripod, 3 elinchrom brx 500 heads and cables with plenty of room to spare. Only bad thing is that it is a duffle bag style. Meaning it can get heavy quick just carrying it.

                    This bag came as part of a light kit I had ordered. In addition to those lights, I ordered several stand alone lights. This bag holds it all. And I still have more room to add more lights in the future. There is a separate pad that separates the cover from the light kits, so I can store my color filters and stands.

                        This is a great bag for the buck. It holds a lot of my lighting gear including stands. The biggest drawback is that it is very heavy with all my lighting gear in it, and finding a good storage spot has proved difficult. Overall I happy with the quality and functionality of the bag.

                              I have purchased several of these bags from B&H. All are just right for my lights. The new one is slightly redesigned from the older version and is a bit wider and a little deeper. Very nice. Definitely worth the price.

                                    Very well made with several repositionable padded dividers.
                                    I purchased this to store and carry a AT10RC (Ritchey~Chretien telescope) in and it fits perfectly, even with the focuser attached.
                                    I placed a couple dividers on each end of the bag for more cushioning and protection.

                                      I use this to carry around 2 impact 400w monolight. they fit side by side together along with 2 10' stands, cables and still have rooms for any small equipment you can throw in.

                                      This is easy to carry around too. the straps are strong.

                                          Excellent bag that can contain everything you can imagine. Strange interior dividers though.

                                            I ordered this bag to go along with my Impact Qualite light kit. It features sturdy construction and configurable compartments. I like how you can put the stands underneath the top opening which is quite convenient. Good value for a well constructed bag.

                                                I needed a case for my lights and for the price this was just perfect. You can easily fit four lights and stands in this case. Though it's not a hard case it was sturdy enough for me to feel comfortable carrying my gear around. It has partitions for you to custimize the interior if you want to carry something esle.

                                                  This a very large bag that easily holds three monolights and cords and a pair of light stands and umbrellas. There are some moveable dividers but not enough to make all the sides sturdy.
