    Haven't had the chance yet. Doing some backpacking with the 5x7 soon -- will see about a bike trip after that.

    I use a Stealth Gear cart, in the largest Think Tank Trunk, meant for video, I can fit easily a Sinar P2 8x10" and three lenses and a few filmholders, and all the rest I need in the field. Click image for larger version.

    I own the gear, but those don't make masterpieces. My everyday experience.

It may work better in other situations than for me. I still use it once in a while. It's folding size makes it easy to keep in the trunk of the car.

    It's great to see a bunch of options, especially ones that aren't super expensive. Personally, my days of dragging 200 lbs. of equipment on a cart are over, as I'm not doing commercial photography anymore, thank goodness. My goal (which certainly isn't everyone's goal), is to have a cart for easy trails that will carry a small amount of gear. The golf cart breaks down in seconds. It only takes a bit more to load. It's compact and light, and it has nice big wheels.
    May tomorrow be a better day.

    I use a modified jogging baby stroller bought used from a baby consignment store. The three good sized wheels roll over the rough terrain better to me.

    An external frame is sort of concave toward the hiker's back when used conventionally as pack frame. I fastened the "convex" side to the golf bag cart and it held the backpack securely enough with the shoulder straps over the projecting uprites and the waist belt wrapped around the frame and GB Cart.

    If that is not clear let me know and I'll give it another try.

    With the cart laid down with the handle on the ground, the bag could be fully opened and stayed off the ground.
