In conclusion? This bag fits my needs perfectly and is an excellent solution for someone wanting a hard case for their gear. As a lighting and studio kit case it works very well - it gives me about 8" extra in height for when I need it (and being 5'8" I do need it at times!), is extremely durable and makes it very easy for me to find whatever it is I'm looking for as it's all in front of me. Rummaging through pockets in a bag is definitely more time consuming. Unpacking and packing the gear the way I've set it up is extremely quick and easy.

I would highly recommend this case to anyone whose needs were similar to mine. Since there are already a few reviews floating around of this case with camera gear in it hopefully this one will add something a little bit different to the mix. It's also going to be a great travelling case for when I go car camping/4WD camping and similar; chuck a simple kit and travel tripod in here and I don't have to worry about water, mud, sand or getting stuff chucked on it - everything in there is going to be safe no matter what.

Some things I've skipped which have been covered in the 1610/1614 review which are the same here - things like the padlock holes and the double-throw latches are just the same quality between the two so if you want more info on those see my other review. Only difference in the above two things is that the 1510 has two latches at the front whereas the 1610 has two at the front and one on each side.

Questions, comments, suggestions and critiques welcomed!

Oh, and I realise that I've labelled the 43" umbrellas as 42" - I can't be bothered going back and changing that. :D

THanks for the review, Jim! I have had my 1510 for about a year now. It's a great case. I feel like if I did get into a planecrash, it would keep my gear safe and me afloat. :)

The 1514 is hands down one of the best travel cases. It is highly versatile, easy to configure for lights and gear, great for checked and carry on and for use on site.

I love mine!


Do you find the Westcott umbrellas durable enough for outdoor use, or do you find them easy to snap in the shaft?

I haven't snapped mine, but you probably would ;)

And completely agree it is a great hard case :D
