I'd be very interested in how the goalie bag works for you. Please report back.
I've just dug out an old goalie bag I had from the back of the garage and tried to stuff all my lighting kit into it.
It took four 13 foot light stands, two 86" PLMs, a 64" PLM, a giant (30" by 60") softbox, four Einsteins and a little plastic toolbox that I keep batteries, triggers, cables and other bits and pieces in. That all fitted no problem, with some space left over that I could stuff plenty of power cords into. It think there is an outside chance that the background support stands and pole could fit in as well, but I don't have that with me to be able to try it.
All of those items (except the toolbox) were in the packaging that they were shipped in. The boxes containing the Einsteins are quite a bit bigger than just the units themselves. If I found a better container for them it would free up a lot of space. The softbox took up a massive amount of space in the bag - almost as much as the light stands and PLMs combined. If I left it out there would be heaps of space left over.
I couldn't quite fit everything in: There was not enough room for a another plastic container that I use to keep the speedrings and reflectors in.
I think the old bag I just tested is 44" by 24" by 24". Although it fitted all the gear fine it isn't really practical because it isn't wheeled. From the browsing I've done this bag would be my pick: http://www.icewarehouse.com/descpage.html?pcode=RGWB There are a few more choices here: http://www.icewarehouse.com …html?ccode=GBAGS&view=all It seems that there are not too many options that have that full 44x24x24 and wheels. If you're prepared to give up the wheels, or two to four inches in width and high you can pick up a similar bag at a third of the price.
