    I stumbled upon this product the other day and i'm curious if anyone has used one.

    It seems like a great idea and I could justify lugging around a 2x12 combo maybe if this things legit.

    gator claims it is reinforced and can be used as a stand as well.

    I've wondered this myself as I have a BP30 that I don't take out much because I don't want to tear it up!

    Yes, I have used my Gator Rolling case for quite some time now.
    Used it for my Diezel 2x12 cab, Suhr CAA 2x12 cab even a couple of small Fender amps just for transport.
    I also have the Gator Head Rolling case that I used for my Diezel Herbert head, my Suhr Custom Audio OD-100 Classic Plus I had to modify it a little but it works really well.
    They are extremely light weight and if you need it to transport your gear like in a "Weekend warrior" kind of scenario they provide great protection.
    If you are touring musician then by all means ATA Flight/Road cases are the way to go!

    I have bought very similar product from Rockbag.

    I use it to transport my Sovereign 1x12 combo.
    I see 3 problems:
    - side wall are reinforest, but the top is soft, so no chance to use it as a stand
    - wheels are to close to each other - not that great stability
    - handle is really loose and feel like is gonna break

    If these 3 issues are designed better by Gator, then I can highly recommend it :AOK
