Hey everyone!

I need some help in finding a case for lighting. I currently have two B-800's, Vagabond II, and a couple of light stands / modifiers. I would LIKE to find a case, does not need to be a hard case like Pelican, that could hold everything, or just the lighting and Vagabond w/ room for expansion.

What does everyone here use to lug their lighting?

I've considered purchasing an SKB Drum hardware case, such as This One (external link). And doing some modification to hold everything. However, I feel that this will get too heavy and can damage my modifiers.

Any other ideas are open, hit me!

I just use a large duffle with strap for my gear. One bag for stands and modifiers another for the lights. Then use a small folding dolly with wheels to move everything quickly.

How big are your light stands and modifiers when all folded up?

I use a Gorilla box that is left over from my Army days, it is heavy but nothing has gotten damaged or scratched. I have no padding in there and just have the lights in the bubble wrap.. http://www.ebay.co.uk …nc&_trksid=p204​7675.l2557 (external link)
