What are you using to transport your tripods, light stands, lights, umbrellas, etc? A bag with wheels would be best since I'm usually working alone and have plenty of stuff to haul around.

These are a few that I've looked at. There are things I like and dislike about each of them. Any other suggestions?

I've used the Photoflex Transpack Dual (external link) before for an interview light kit. It worked great and the price was reasonable. They also have a shorter version of the case available.

I searched quite a bit, looking at quality, brand, price, design and .I found this "On-Stage SSB6500) to be an excellent choice for my needs. I have 1 Background LS (18" ???), 1 Short LS (8" ???), 2 Calumet 13.5' AC Stands, 3 60" Umbrellas and 3 Umbrella Brackets fitting well. $32 and very heavy material.

I went with the Photoflex Transpac Single Kit Case (external link). It's big enough to hold the gear I needed (although my Manfrotto 1052 stand just barely fits) and the price was reasonable at $140.

Quality is average or slightly above except for the zippers which are slightly below. I was tempted to just put that $140 toward a ThinkTank Production Manager 40 (external link), but $550 was a little more than I wanted to spend. If this bag turns out to be something I use all the time, then I'll sell it and pick up the ThinkTank around mid-2015.

I bought that bag a few months ago, but immediately returned it. It was TOO BIG! And heavy - 30 lbs empty...

Well, it's got wheels, and I have a ramp to the truck, Lol.

Great Avatar by the way.
