    SoftCase with Wheels is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 34.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad at all... This bag suits the purpose.. I needed a bag for my 3 Impact 300w Qualite lights, stands, and umbrellas.. I ordered this bag online Saturday night and it arrived Wednesday, which was pretty quick to me.. Everything fit perfectly! 3 lights on top, and there's a secret compartment by the pull handle, unzip that and place your 3 stands in there under the lights.. I used the netted zipper compartment for my umbrellas... Plus it has extra pockets for other supplies you may need on your shoot.. The wheels are a little small but it still rolls ok.. It does tend to tip over.. The bag is heavy, but durable, I feel confident my lights are safe.. Not bad looking either...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from just what I needed I sometimes get asked to shoot, little run and guns or mini interview/talking heads in Manhattan, so I needed a small portable kit that holds the essentials and is easy to transport! This is it. I love the double decker set-up and the extra pockets (inside and out) This case holds 2 (or 3 small) light heads, my chimera (in the side pocket) 2 or 3 Matthews reverse stands, a small tripod, cables, dimmers, spares, etc.So with my camera kit in a Pelican case, and wheeling the rest behind me, I am good to go!I would give 5 stars, if the wheels were set a little wider apart for better stability. BUT all in all a great case for the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Five Stars! Please, please, please, do no listen to those whiners who took their precious time to write a bad review about this super nice softcase by Smith Victor. I am not getting anything from Smith Victor to write this review. This softcase is beyond my expectations...far beyond...Guys, for $ bucks you will get a well made softace that will be able to hold three strobes such as Alien Bees and their reflectors, cables, battery pack, stands, and light modifiers...It looks durable. Not made of flimsy fabric and the wheels are great... Very happy and surprised...I did not expected that much...I RECOMMEND...! By the way, I am a professional wedding photographer based in Boston, Massachusetts. Thank you Smith Victor...!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Should have spent a little more money Just a poor design. There are no handles on the ends, just straps over the top. So in the car there's nothing to pull on to slide it out of the trunk. The wheels aren't reinforced so they are tilting out a little and they are close together. So the bag tips easily. The pull handle isn't locked when it's extended so if u need to push the bag the handle goes in. I only have 3 lights in it and the velcro doesn't seem to want to stay in place. The walls are also poorly reinforced. It's inexpensive... but I got what I paid for.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Strong, Sturday, but Heavy I'm a dainty girl... sorta. I don't own a car, and its tiring to haul bags of heavy equipment with my flimsy arms around on the bus and subway. When I saw this bag online I was super excited that I could finally pull my equipment like my luggage. The good: I could pull it like my luggage. It's strong, and sturdy. BUT because of its sturdy construction, its a tad on the heavy side. So when you add equipment to it, it gets really really heavy. Another con is the really small wheels, which doesn't help with balancing the weight when you roll around. Another thing I like is that the lightstands & umbrella can go in a separate zippered compartment. When you stand the bag up, you can easily access the lightstands without unzipping the main compartment and digging through your other equiptment.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tough Guy on Wheels I use the case to haul around some of my White Lightnings. When I first got it, I was quite suprised at how tough it is. The entire frame is quite strong, and stays rigid for most impacts short of throwing it off a moving car (didn't try it; but I did give the case a few terse kicks to see how it holds up). The handle too is wide and seems tought, so I'm not too wary of letting the weight of my strobes, modifiers, adaptors etc. sit on it when I'm wheeling it around. The only thing that would've made it perfect were if it were larger. I knew when I purchased it that it would not fit 3 strobes (unless they were little Canon Speedlites - note the dimensions), but I can only fit in a pair of X3200's before I find that I'm running out of real estate. Again, I wasn't too surprised, but for a change it would be nice if the marketing matched the product...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The nicest soft case I have ever seen I purchased this case to store 3 studio strobes and their stands. I am really impressed with the quality and construction of this soft case. This is without a doubt the best made soft case I have ever seen. In fact I purchased a 2nd one and will consider buying more for other storage needs beyond lighting equipment. This case is top quality material and very well made. Zippers are sturdy, as are the handles and straps. The Cordura nylon is heavy weight and the entire design is well thought out. You won't find a case as good at twice the price and I have looked.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Returned after ordering I'm a professional photographer and purchased this product to carry Alien Bees, light stands, electrical, etc. However it was simply too heavy. At 17 pounds empty, by the time it was loaded I couldn't pick it up.
