This should be the last bit of mobile studio kit that I should need. Hopefully..... I need one that will house my 12" beauty dishes and so it should be 32cm wide internally and at least 80cm in height/length to take my stands (76cm). I have seen this one but at 31cm internal width it maybe a bit tight: https://www.essentialphoto.co.uk/product/pixapro-pro-quality-studio-lighting-equipment-roller-bag-94cmx31cmx28-5cm/ Or, one of these two: http://www.wexphotographic.com/buy-manfrotto-pro-light-lw-88w-rolling-organiser-case/p1552605 http://www.wexphotographic.com/buy-manfrotto-pro-light-lw-97w-rolling-organiser-case/p1552606 I just wanted to know if anyone has had experience of using any of these. Or, if anyone could recomend something similar? Thanking you in advance.

I looked a something similar a few years back & then found a large wheeled bag in Costco for about £40 cut out the internal partitions & added £20 worth of industrial grade foam rubber from the local market, does the job - total cost £60 plus when I'm pulling it through London I'm just another tourist with a bag of clothes.

I have been looking at wheeled suitcases, but most zip exactly around the middle. Whilst I need a case that only zips around the edge on one side so that I have the depth.

I will keep looking.....

Think Tank Photo had some wheeled equipment bags at the show that zip around the edges, can't tell you what size they were but they were pretty big. Not cheap though but seemed very well made.

Tenba also do large wheeled bags (again, probably not cheap)
