I had one of those..... It's an excellent product, but my problem was on uneven terrain or on a bumpy sidewalk, my gear would start to slide off and fall onto the ground. So, I saw the garden cart at Home Depot and the wheels in my mind started turning, and I've never regretted the purchase!

Bungee cords with hooks or tie-downs would work well in that instance, even with the garden cart scenario for a little extra security. :)

If you're doing a location shoot and tanking things like light stands and reflectors, how do you carry your gear to avoid looking like this guy?

I don't, since I rarely have an assistant, I look just like that guy.

Me too.

I pack everything in a Tenba Shootout L. The tripod is fastened onto it along with the brollies and I carry the bungee-cord-tied light stands in my hands or slung on my shoulder (attached a strap to the Manfrotto stand).

I purchased a Think Tank Airport International. Great case but a few times one of airlines they asked to look in it because some person realized it was a camera bag and made me remove gear due to overhead weight restrictions. Had a lens in my wife's purse, my jacket pocket and in a plastic bag. Never again. I just use it locally now.
