    SKB 2SKB-R4913S reviews

    ATA Freedom Stand Transport Case is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Best value for large tripod transport As others have pointed out, this case can be a bit tricky to use. The top fits inside the bottom, so overfilling it means that the two wont go together properly. The little latches are pretty bad and easily separated while pulling it, spilling tripods on the ground. However, that being said, it is many hundreds of dollars less than the next comparable case of its size. A few added luggage straps and light modification will hold the pieces together firmly. If you need perfection, then look elsewhere. If you are on a budget, can stand a few workarounds, and would rather have better lights instead of a fancy case this might be for you.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Loved it at first.. DO NOT BUY THIS CASE IF YOU PLAN TO TRAVEL COMMERCIAL AIR. I love the case, I love the easy wheels and handles, but when I travel by air, it always comes down the carousel UNLATCHED. This was a concern for me until yesterday, and now it's a dealbreaker: Southwest Air only delivered the bottom-half of the case... the top half and EVERYTHING inside of it wound up in Tampa. My gear was damaged. I will continue to use this case for local work, but only when I have it in my control at all times. Even locks and additional attachments do nothing to keep the latches from coming undone. I first I thought it was lazy TSA... but it happens every time, so it must be the case.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Case for Photographers I am a professional photographer working both in the studio and on location. I've used one for 2 years and I am purchasing a second. It holds an adequate amount of stands, and umbrellas with a tripod. It's not wise to overload the case. Since the top fits inside the bottom and locks, it has to be free to move into place. I put a nylon laundry bag inside mine (not the mesh kind). The equipment fits in the bag and then I cinch it up first. Then I put the top on and lock it. Rolls easy. Overloaded it can be heavy to put in the back of your vehicle. Very Durable. Not latch problems like discussed in other reviews, but I am not flying with them.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Inexpensive case but need gaffer tape This is a great sized case. It is awkward to roll by dragging around by a non-ergonomic handle arrangement, especially when dragging around other luggage. Plus the first time it came off the airport luggage conveyor the latches on both sides of the case had failed and the top was loose from the bottom. The latches had been latched and secured with zip ties on both sides, but the latches don't line up well and don't have enough take-up to catch securely. We now gaffer tape the ends together for shipping. Gaffer tape is still cheaper than buying a more expensive shipping case for your stands, but it would be nicer not to have to use it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed the first time I used it I used this case for one job. I shipped a couple of light stands and a tripod which I hope to see again some day. Outbound, the latch that I locked with a padlock popped open. Fortunately, the latch I zip-tied stayed closed. When I shipped it back to myself, FedEx called to tell me that half of an empty case had arrived in their distribution hub and that all my equipment was missing. The latches on this case are pathetic. This case might be okay for local work, but if you plan on traveling, it will not do the job. SKB should be ashamed of this model. Too bad I had to give it even one star.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from good protection (when closed!) Solid case for protecting stands and tripods for flight but be prepared to do some modifications. The latches do not hold up. On 3 out of 4 flights so far, one or both of the latches were not secure when collecting the case at arrivals. We riveted a luggage strap to the two halves to keep it securely closed in transit. So far, so good. Also, it's a good idea to stuff some foam padding around the stands to keep them from damaging each other and to separate them from the sides. This also makes it easier to fit the lid as it goes inside the bottom half not over the top as one would expect. Wheels are a huge plus. The top handle is awkward when pulling behind you. Easier out in front.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Solution for stand transport yet I have searched long and hard for a way to transport my light stands to my location gigs. They were either too expensive, bulky or impractical. This works perfectly! I can load three full size Manfrotto stands, three umbrellas, two or three smaller stands and assorted soft goods that fit in the spaces. Some reviewers have noted that the top is hard to put on if the case i heavily loaded. I found the same thing but I just flipped it over and used the top as the bottom. You can then fill it without any worry that the case will not close as the top/with wheels goes over the outside of the bottom. You then flip the whole setup over and wheel off. Well made easy to load into my van. What more could I want?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from True Freedom! I love this case--I've got four of them! These are premier cases for lightstands and a lot of other gear, such as umbrellas and Westcott Apollo softboxes. Although they are extremely rigid and tough, the major benefit is that they load upright (like golf bags) instead of having to be laid down and opened like clamshells. They'are also wheeled--at my age, I don't buy any cases without wheels. Moreover, they're relatively inexpensive (especially with free shipping). I do a lot of on-location work, and I carry everything but my cameras themselves in these cases. Expertise: Professional photographer, 30+ years experience Problems Encountered: They don't come filled with cash, but they help me make cash. Previous Equivalent Item Owned: Clamshell-style cases. Soft cases. Items I Recommend: Westcott Apollo softboxes, Reflectasol umbrellas
