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. When open, the lid will stay open so you can easily load and unload your gear without the lid getting in the way. 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 as our Cargo Cases, due to the smaller width and height, so they are a little easier to travel and maneuver with. 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 50” Flip Lid is a good choice for the bigger “umbrellas” that have become the choice of some photographers. The Elichrom Octabox with SpeedRing fits perfectly in the case. It can also handle a couple of C-Stands with the removable turtle base with ease and the tie down straps keep them from jumping around inside the case. Weighing it at only 4.5 lbs., this padded case can handle a lot of weight enabling you to carry more equipment and less case. That’s what it is all about.
