Hi guys! I'm looking for recommendations on road cases for my strobe kit based on what you own and have used.
I've got the following, and I'd like to see about getting most of it into one wheeled case for transport:
- Alien Bees B1600
- 2x Alien Bees B800
- 3x Alien Bees 7" reflectors
- 3x 7" grids
- spare bulbs, gels, clothespins
- Alien Bees Vagabond (Mini/Lithium) & charger
- 3x RadioPopper JRX receivers
- RadioPopper JRX Transmitter
- Sekonic L-358s light meter
Ideally I'd like stackable or rigid cases, so I can pile them in my SUV, so likely hardshell cases will be what I get (I previously owned, and was not impressed by the protection of Alien Bees soft cases).
My plan right now is to get a Pelican 1650 and pluck the foam for the 3 flash heads and battery pack, then pluck out a large area for a padded case to contain the JRX transmitter/receivers. The bulbs (packed in bubblewrap) and the light meter can go in that same cavity with the JRX kit.
Do any of you have the Pelican 1650, and can you fit the above items in that case? Any of you guys using something different for a similar lighting kit? Should I go with two smaller Pelican cases instead of the big one? Any other brands I should consider? Thanks in advance!
