Topic: Jeff Jones Backdrop Travel Bag

OK I LOVE my Jeff Jones Backdrop however I have not had the best of luck with the travel bag. So at Jeff's suggestion I went to a golf supply store to look for a case and ended up buying a soft sided golf bag. Initially I went looking for a hard case but this soft sided one seemed to do the trick. I cut a length of wood exactly the length of the bag and put it into the bottom of the bag to keep it from slouching when I pull it by the handle (the fact that it has wheels is very nice also) due to the fact that the bag it longer than it needs to be.

BTW I cannot say enough great things about my backdrop and the fact that I had to invest another $60 into a new bag would not deter me from recommending it to others as overall I think it is the best one on the market and at a very reasonable price I might add.

That's a clever idea, using a golf bag. Thanks for sharing.

So funny I thought of doing the same thing with an old golf travel bag. It's really too bad he didn't add a few inches of material to the original carry bag so the zippers wouldn't blow out.

I too love my Jeff Jones backdrops. It is unfortunate that the bag wasn't made a little bigger and with a better zipper. That is one thing that Creative Magic always did very well and it helped enhance the portability of their products.

I found an "old school" golf clubs case made out of very durable plastic. Works great, and I use the Jeff Jones bags for Bigger Wands now. I'll let you in on a secret. I noticed that while Jeff uses the carry bag to carry his backdrop, he keeps the tripod in a separate bag within the other bag. That would prevent the tripod from damaging the bag. That's "inner secret" stuff right there!
