Hey not sure if this has been discussed much but I couldn't find any information.

What're you guys using to store/transport your lighting/grip equipment?

I've been looking at some roller and carry tool boxes for the non stand equipment.

I'm still deciding on what would be the best route for my kit. I don't have much, for now, but still planning to expand the collection over the next few years and rather not end up buying a bunch of stuff two or three times due to adding more gear. Right now I have one rovelight that lives in the carry case it came in, along with a pair of speed lights. A pelican 1515 for most of the rest of my gear, and then modifiers/stands get bundled up with a simple strap to make them easier to carry.

Have been considering a custom fibreglass and plywood wheeled case/field desk. Two channels on the sides along the long edges for stands and such to get strapped into, and then divided sections down the middle for padded slots to store the rest of the gear. Not really the kind of thing that would be car friendly, but I figure my back would be happier with lugging all that extra weight in one go if it meant I just had to extend the legs before tipping it up right and having all my gear at 'table height' regardless of whether or not there was a table on location when I got there. Stooping down to get stuff does kind of suck.

RocknRoller has been a lifesaver. There are many sizes to choose from but I've found the smallest, R2 is just right for my gears when extended.

Heya,

My strobe came in a hard case that it fits in nicely with velvet/foam inserts, so I just use that for that particular light.

For my speedlites, they go in a typical bag (I have 6).

If I had to organize more and plan for air travel, etc, I'd just use a roller pelican case.

Very best,

How is the RockNRoller holding up?

It is on my short list but am a little concerned about the wheels on that mini.

I was recently talking to a guy who bought a used golf bag for storing/carrying his stands etc. I thought that was a great idea. Not for air travel of course.

Can you point out the accessories ...that's a pretty cool mobile studio setup there.

My good friend and fellow photog, Jon, used this wagon to transport a decent load during several of our photoshoots together:

Light stands, strobes, camera gear, snacks, reflectors, and clothing (couture looks) all fit nicely and securely with this wagon... I recently purchased one for myself to lug things around during shoots and such... THANKS JON!!!
