I actually bought this stand by mistake, I wanted to buy the full size stand. After unpacking it, I realized this stand easily will fit in a standard suitcase. You can actually fit two or three even and be under the 50 pound weight limit. Great if you do portraits in other states.
This is the best purchase I've made in a long time. Being familiar with Matthews C-stands, I knew what to expect, but I still was wow'ed when I unpacked it. Good for low height, and adjustable leg (which is super easy to lock down). That leg is handy in small studio space or outdoors where the terrain is uneven. The only con is that Matthews is more expensive than Avenger which I've never used, ... maybe I'll try an Avenger next time. In any case, I know I can count on Matthews for being solid and durable.
