   This is a video review from my "whoismatt" YouTube Channel.

Up until around six months ago, when I wanted to transport my video support gear such as tripods, monopods, slider, etc. to weddings and other shoots, I did it all by hand. This typically resulted in multiple trips to and from my car whenever I changed locations on a wedding day, as well as horrible back pain. I will say though, that there was something macho about treating my gear transport in the same way I handled bringing in grocery bags inside from a trip to the store - all in one trip.

After six years of living like this, I realized that it was time for a change and began researching cases that would enable me to transport my support gear, ideally in one trip. My only requirements were that it be sturdy and hold a lot of gear. After much reading and requesting recommendations from friends, I chose this tripod case. I'm pleased to say that after taking it to three states, thirteen shoots, and subjecting it to a diversity of terrain, it has held up in a spectacular fashion. In the review video above, I cover the hardware, storage capacity, and a few of the issues I have with the case.

Overall, if you are living your life like I was and transporting a lot of gear inefficiently, take hope! A good tripod case can go a long ways to improving your speed, and this one is a winner.

If you watch my review video and decide to invest in one of these cases for yourself, I would recommend checking out the "Used and New" section here on Amazon for their Warehouse Deals, this should help you save some $.

I needed a bag that could hold a few tripods, a glidecam (broken down) and light stands. I purchased a few Neewer bag's that had been either too small for my light stands or damaged because they are made with cheap materials.

I purchased this case because it was heavy duty. It held more than enough gear and it keeps my studio clean because it stays in the case at all times at this point. It rolls perfectly even through rough areas. I also love that I access everything while it's standing up instead of laying it down. It lastly has a place to lock it during flights which I will be using it for this weekend.

I regret not having this five years ago... great purchase for me.

I use this case for photography and transporting my stands, crossbar, and misc accessories. Here is my list of contents:

2 - 8' stands for lights
2 - 9.5' stands for backdrop
1 - telescoping crossbar
2 - 60" umbrellas
2 - 45" umbrellas
Misc - spring clamps, gaffer tape, power cords

It rolls great and travels on domestic flights with ease. Never any damage.

Great product. The only drawback is there is no way to lock it for air travel.

Sturdy, mobile and light. Just what I needed to protect my tripod and keep me under my baggage weight.

My Ravelli 75mm Tripod fits nicely, with a little extra room at the top

Wheels are really bad. Super loud

DOeas what it promises to do, and does it well. Though I have added an extra strap to be sure it wont open during transportation, but besides that, very good product.

Parfait pour transporter un trépied dans l'avion. Pas de rembourrage à l'intérieur mais on peut facilement faire rentrer un trépied + sac de trépied rembourré.
