I've yet to find a hard case (or two cases) that will accommodate a 40" tripod, two light stands, an umbrella, and a couple of lights. I also have a collapsible muslin background (26" in diameter when collapsed), but I don't trust soft cases being checked onto a plane. I'd hate to retrieve my background only to find it ruined because of a rowdy baggage handler or someone else's luggage punctured it. Does anyone have any recommendations or have anything for sale that could work for me? Thanks in advance.
