The Flip Lids are built tough just like our cargo cases but with a few differences. The top or “the lid” folds back instead of opening down the middle like our cargo cases. These cases are 8 inches square on the inside and have two tie downs for securing gear. These are perfect for a slider, support stands, octaboxes and big umbrellas.
You can’t pack them as heavy so they are a little easier to travel and maneuver. For a simple location kit you can use a flip lid for the background stands along with the backdrop. You still have enough room for a soft box or umbrella. Don’t forget your tripod and you now have a pretty sweet location kit.
The Flip Lid 8 aka the 37″ great for you average light stands, but if you need a little more length, look at out 50″ and 62″ Flip Lids.
