New Gear: Wheeled Light Stand Carrying Bag
The other day I decided to stop procrastinating and take advantage of Labor Day discounts; hence, I bought myself a much needed gear carrying bag. That is, a wheeled carrying bag for my studio gear, to be precise.
I needed a wheeled carrying bag, long and sturdy enough for my longest stands (42″ folded length), a 7′ umbrella and stand, and other gear. After spending a significant time looking and searching for just the right bag, I decided to go for the Godox CB-01. It’s $100 (and it’s a steal, compared to other bags in the same category).
In this post, I’d like to share my first impressions:
The Godox CB-01 is sturdy enough for what I need these days. Not all on-location photo shoots require all that gear, but some do, hence, it’s good to have a rolling bag sturdy enough to carry it.
The Godox CB-01 also offers plenty of ways to store gear. I managed to fill my bag with two 9.5′ Impact stands (42″ folded length), tripod, another stand and arm (for my reflector), horizontal rods (for backdrop), cloth backdrops (three: one thick cloth, two thin cloth), two Profoto strip softboxes and respective rods).
Here are a few images:
Again, I hope I won’t have to wheel this bag, fully loaded, out of the house. But it’s good to know that that’s an option. I see myself loading it with light stands, my Profoto studio gear, light modifiers and even cameras and lenses, on a more regular basis.
The good news is that I’ve found a better and more practical storage solution for my (photo and lighting) gear. And that’s a relief!
As always, thanks for stopping by!
