In The Bag: Or should it be 'On The Cart'?
By Matt Brown

Matt Brown loves his Rock N Roll Multi-Cart.
I've been asked many times what's up with the BIG cart? For me it all starts with my cart! I love my cart. The Big Kahuna told me about a really sweet cart he had found.

I had just had a very bad experience with a cart and a bungee cord to the face. The next day I had the Rock N Roll Multi-Cart. No more bungee cords!

With all the gear I have I just can't get it all into a roller. The bags I work out of are the Lightware MF1623 Multi Format, the Think Tank Airport Check In and Modulus Speed Set and maybe a Glass Taxi (if I bring the 400mm).

The Rock N Roll Multi-Cart holds up to 500 lbs. and folds up. Perfect, let's get on! I take the cart every place. 90% of what I do starts with the MF1623 Multi Format.

This is my football set up. Basketball, Hockey and AVP add other MF1623 and a MF1420.

Why use the cart? Because I want to save my back! I don't want to carry a thing going in and out of ballparks and fields. I don't what to move gear from on bag to other and forget something at home. Bring the bags and let the cart do the work.
