Would you trust the protection for checking this with two tripods inside?
Asked by: Brian
I travel with this case all the time, however, I have my tripod in a case within this case. Also, carry 2 stands, umbrellas and silks in it. I wouldn't trust putting tripods in it w/o some additional protection, unless you are removing the heads.

Can I store c-stands in this?
Asked by: Ben C.
It'll depend on how short the stand breaks down. I can just barely fit the grip arm (that measures a little under 42 ) in the bag. it has to go in diagonally to fit. I'd say 40 is the maximum length things can be without needing to jam them in.
