Im looking at some hard cases now for my AB800's X2 and vagabond II 3 PW II and cords etc. I was looking at the Pelican 1510 and 1560. I dont know if there big enough to fit. Any other alternatives that isnt crazy expensive? The two pelicans i was looking at were under 125$.

I saw someone buy a pretty large case for a gun - it had a ton of padding on the inside... and was easily large enough for those alienbee's. Something to consider... I bought one from wal-mart for $10 and it holds all of my parts for my DSLR rig (rails/handles/mics/re​corder/monitor) perfectly.

Learned about this from a great local photographer:

Picked it up from Lowes fro $49. It has wheels and a great tool tray that I can store cables and little misc. items. I carry 3 AB's, modifiers, cables and strap my stands to the top using bungee cords. The Vegabond can fit in there too if I needed it.

I use pretty much the same thing filled with custom cut foam. Works very well for a ultimate mobility setup but does leave a bit to be desired in terms or protection, durability, and security(all of which a Pelican case excels at). I wouldn't use it for airline use or anywhere it might be subject to heavy impacts but for general, non heavy duty use, they work well and are great for anyone on a tight budget.

I bought the 1564 to carry my two Elinchrom 600RX units with a Vagabond II as well as my camera body and 70-200 2.8 IS II and other stuff. Worked out well.

Would the 1510 fit everything?

use that little extra space for the cables now... but when i get another b1600 or b800, im going to cut the foam and put it there.
