I have 2 AB 1600's and the 1560. Just eyeballing things, I would say it would be a close fit. I doubt if the reflectors would fit. I don;t know the size of the Vagabond, but extension cords might also have to be carried in another bag.

I vote no.

I use my 1560 for overflow storage of lenses, speedlights, etc. I haven't tried to store any bodies, but you might be able to get all of that stuff in it. It is deep enough that you could stack a couple of prime lenses on top of each other. The dividers make it easy to adjust as needed.

I carry all of my gear in a Stanley Fat Max Workstation. That includes several super clamps, wireless triggers, tape, extension cords, 2 AB's and a camera bag on top. The only modification I did was to add a tie down cleat to the front of the workstation so I could lash my camera bag to it and then roll the whole thing away.

The fat max is practical for the shooting you do. Looks loaded, though not by what I saw yesterday in NY. Grips were setup for a location shoot in a store and the apparatus all around was astounding. Large semi's were needed to bring it in. I didn't ask what movie they were shooting.

It will. I use the 1564 to carry a VB II and two Elinchrom 600 RX units with my 70-200 2.8 IS II and gripped 5D and various cords and accessories.
