New Matthews KitBAGS make transporting C-stands easier
Based in Burbank, California, Matthews Studio Equipment, manufacturer of camera and lighting support for the entertainment industry, has developed KitBAGS. This new line of grip and lighting equipment bags have been specifically designed to ease the daily burden of transporting C-stands. With independent productions shifting to smaller crews and faster setups in multiple locations, MSE has drawn on its years of experience to develop the first cases that fully address all the requirements of today’s C-stand owners.
“The ability to quickly pack and transport a few C-stands has become a necessity,” says Tyler Phillips, Executive Vice President for MSE. “In the past, bags designed for this purpose have been very limited and lack the robustness and features required. Legs often protrude, and arms, when folded, make their size and shape awkward to carry and ship.”
MSE gathered years of feedback from the thousands of C-stand owners to produce bags that are convenient, strong and affordable. The new bags, designed to transport several stands easily, feature ballistic nylon, heavy-duty, easy-glide zippers, padded red interiors and high-density wheels to ensure performance and reliability.
“The rolling bag has additional space for lighting stands or grip gear and an external zipper pocket for the Matthews RoadFlags II kit. Almost everything you need in one case,” Phillips explains.
It’s a world-class support in a heavy-duty package – including the little extras like business card name-tag holder, padded shoulder strop, grip handles, internal dividers and more – making travelling with C-stands really convenient and easy.
MSE’s KitBAGS come in Rolling style at $350 and Shoulder style at $250.
