    Lightware RC1048 reviews

    RC1048 Rolling Stand Bag is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bag I carry 5 Manfrotto 1004BAC light stands in the center compartment, 2 Manfrotto 1052BAC light stands in one side pocket, and 3 60 umbrellas in the second side pocket. The fully packed bag is nearly too heavy to lift. Fortunately it's got wheels which is great until you have to go up a flight of stairs. It also fits sideways in the back seat of my car. The build quality of the bag is excellent. The zippers are good quality and travel easily. The bag is padded. The center compartment has straps to secure the contents. I highly recommend this bag to any photographer who travels with lighting equipment by car.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Rolling Stand Bag Solution I had looked at other bags from $100 less to $300 more, and decided to go with this bag from Lightware. It fits up to the longest stands I have, yet the bag is very lightweight. There are 3 compartments. The main one in the middle is true to the specs listed here - 48x10x8. The 2 side compartments are about 45 long x 8 high or a little under. And the width of the side pockets range from 3.5 at the edges all the way out to 6 at the center - very roomy for additional lightweight gear. I'm sold! Only con was not having more photos on the website or anywhere else, since I bought it online. I'm glad I did.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice This is the longer of the two choices and fits longer stands like 11' or even the Avenger boom stand. I like the separate outside pockets for storing soft boxes or scrim material. Even a large hex soft box. Heavy duty construction and fabric. Strong zippers. Wheels are great for rolling to a shuttle bus or at the airport. Does NOT stand on it's end if you were wondering. I don't see why they even placed the extra plastic thing on the bottom for this purpose. So, weighing it on a floor scale for travel is almost impossible. But, only a small problem. Fits more than I thought it would!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag Reading many reviews of this product, the thing people seemed to be most miffed with was the bowing in the middle. We're loading four 10.75' turtle-base c-stands in this bag (which, with a little bit of force just BARELY fit lengthwise). All four of the main stands and the bases fit in the main compartment, and two arms in each of the side pockets. At 23 lbs a piece, the bag is pushing 100lbs. There are two small snap-straps on the inside of the bag, and two large ones on the outside. When we tighten them down as far as they'll go, we haven't had any issues with bowing. Again, though, the poles for the stands run the entire length of the interior. If you're running smaller tripods, that might not be the case. Love this bag.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy Access The greatest thing I love about this bag is the ease in which I can load/unload it. The top zipper opens up the full length of the bag allowing me to access the contents of the bag very quickly. I've tried multiple other bags/cases and spent a lot of money... and then I found THIS. This one is definitely the most functional for me. Other benefits include the huge side pockets, the securing straps, and the wheels. The one thing I wish it had is a handle on the end where the wheels are. That would be helpful for allowing two people to lift/carry the bag when necessary.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Location Carrier This type of casesomething that will take light stands, light shapers, tripods and so forth and is rugged enough to travel with & easy to access is one of the most problematic areas of gear design. You want it to be lightweight as well as tough enough so that you can roll around town and also trust it checking onto an airplane. I like to have my stands and soft boxes in a separate case from the packs and heads - so this case suits me. The RC1048 is superb at stowing 2/3 42 inch folded (11 ft opened) stands, two grip arms, two umbrellas and two soft boxes. It goes into the back of a vehicle for local shooting and deploys rapidly. I have not checked it on an airplane yet - it seems adequate.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Depends on your needs I originally purchased this and then sold it a month later. My reason for doing so is that is has a weak solid support underneath. It tends to sag and becomes a bit of a wet noodle when adding real equipment. I travel through airports for location work, so I also need something that's going to protect my equipment from the TSA and baggage handler throws it's going to endure. I can tell you that I'd never put a light or sensitive equipment in this bag. ONLY stands, cords, etc. should be in this bag. Nothing that can't take a hit. If you're a local wedding photographer who'll throw this in the back of your SUV, this bag will suit you fine. For the rest of us location and advertising photographers who leave our equipment for baggage handlers, this bag is only suited for misc equip. The Lightware RC1032 and RC1042 have been discontinued (for those of use who need serious travel cases). I spoke with Lightware and they're redesigning both of those bags (mainly due to wheel redesign, which was needed). There's no other serious, lightweight bag on the market until the redesign of those two are available. With airlines becoming more strict on weight, Pelicans are too heavy. When you add equipment, they're always way over. I'm waiting for the Lightware RC1042 redesign.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 48 stand bag I've found so far I own 2 of these and use them for the heavy stuff - c-stands and Mole - Hollywood Beefy Baby stands. About 4 fit in each bag w/ arms.The beefy baby stands get pretty bulky with arms though. I mix in some Manfroto aluminum versions of the beefy baby to lighten the load at times. The bags also have zippered pockets on either side that hold my 7' umbrellas or other. I've had one for 2 years and it's holding up well.
