This is an excellently made bag. Open it up and there are individual slots for each microphone stand (six slots, but I managed to fit two extra small stands in loose between slots), each mildly padded. I was very impressed with the construction and design of this bag, and was planning to use it to transport microphone stands to and from places where I record (I offer portable recording services under the name Talkback Audio Productions), but unfortunately, the bag is just not comfortable to carry. As you may have guessed, six microphone stands weigh a fair bit, and the bag hangs quite low if you hold it by its carrying handle, and while it does offer a shoulder strap as an alternative, it's just not viable. You end up awkwardly shimmying your way through doorways and past other equipment, knocking into stuff and generally feeling quite strained. This bag would be a full 5 stars if it had wheels. I recommend buying ONLY if you are carrying it a short distance to some method of transport (e.g. a car or van), as it's just not viable for anything more than a "round the corner" trip. Very well constructed, though.
