I am looking for a lightly padded bag in which I can use to store and transport a couple of tripods, lightstands and my Konova 31" slider when I am on video gigs.
After doing some research, I am leaning towards the Hakuba PSTC400, but before I pull the trigger I am interested in seeing what else is out there.
I dont need anything heavy duty like a manfrotto of Gitzo. Just something that is easy to transport.

I've been looking for something like this as well, and my best bet so far seems to be this:

Thank looks like a great solution for lightstands, umbrellas and speedlights, but I dont think I would be able to fit a tripod with a Manfrotto 701 head since the bag has a 6" diameter.

Kinda pricey for what is essentially a duffle

I've used a variety of the $20-$25 variants

No complaints.

If you search on "speaker stand bags" you'll find essentially the same items with a bit more length and girth. I find these handy for shucking around my Manfrotto / gimble and also combining the contents of some of the smaller bags when the need arises.


....the best camera is the one you have on you at the time.

I also came across that one, but it is also only 6" wide.

Head into a large music store, and make your way to the drum section. Different companies produce a range of carry options for things like cymbal stands and the like, so just ignore the bags for the drums and cymbals themselves.

Might find something that will fit your desires.

I think we might of found a winner. Thanks


I own that exact roller and its the case that I have been using for the past year to transport my gear, but I am starting to find it too cumbersome when I am just transporting stands and tripods.
Its excellent for transporting my monolights, vagabond and modifiers though. If I could do it again, I would get the dual light kit.
