I am a wedding photographer and sometimes we (me and my wife) shoot video as well. Often we have to carry lighting gear and softboxes, slider, etc.

I am looking for a utility cart/wagon... I have come across a cart which I think would be awesome for my purposes: http://www.amazon.com/​Folding-Utilit.../dp/B00TM27VU​O

Do you use something similar? What would you recommend? What do you use to carry your gear?

Link seems to have been shortened and unusable.

I've been meaning to get something sorted out, probably along the lines of a modified two wheeled hand truck/dolly setup that should be easy to get through doors and such, and not really able to roll away on me when I stop.

I just shot a wedding in Key West yesterday. I had to walk to my car with all my gear because of limited parking in Key West. I had to walk ten minutes. It doesn't sound long but with all my gear it was hard on my feet. I can feel them right now as I write this. I will order a cart tonight!

I use a Rugged Gear 3 gun cart... the U brackets hold my tripod and monopod. The main compartment holds my Domke 1 FX.

I'm not a wedding photographer so your mileage may vary.

I am at work and can't post a link at the moment but you can google Rugged Gear and it should come right up.

I did add some ballast to one of the front pockets to keep it from tipping, as I often have a 7D2 and 100-400ii mounted to the monopod. I use 10 pounds of buckshot, in a ziplock bag, put in a more attractive neoprene bag.

I like the idea of the wheeled baseball sport utility bags, but I haven't tried one yet. For me, a 2-wheeled solution at the expense of some storage space is the most practical.

If I could get an old red flyer wagon, I'd use that with bungee cords. Maybe add some struts, to the wheels.

Either that or buy a really cool baby buggy. They fold up, usually too.

The Mondial looks badass! The space underneath is perfect, too!

And, you can use it's looks to get you further up in line at attractions.
