    So if I drive I really have no problem to carry my big soft box and aluminum beauty dish even with C-stand. However in the city I really need an on-the-go package riding buses and subway. I tested the following package for my "semi-serious" photo walk.

    The package includes:
    a Godox AD200 with A7Rii and lens in my messenger bag (on my shoulder)
    a Godox S-type bracket holder, a 120cm soft box and 200cm foldable light stand in a 92cm long carrying bag (in my hand)

    For one person, this is lightweight and manageable. The soft box cannot be over 120cm if it needs to go into the carrying bag. For example, the soft box and carrying bag links are here:

    Neewer 47"/120cm Octagonal Umbrella Diffuser Softbox for Studio Flash Speedlite

    Neewer 36" Nylon Photographic Tripod Carry Bag with Strap for Light Boom Stand | eBay

    Here are some photos with my on-the-go package:

    That looks like a nice solution to your problem of traveling light.
    Nice pictures too.

    Really nice light but you do that by yourself? I'd be afraid that the box would blow in the wind.

    Yes when I say "on-the-go", that means for one person only. Wind is always a problem but I can adapt to it. In fact the box was blown to the ground twice, however it's sturdy enough for the impact. My AD200 was mounted on the s-type holder and there was no direct impact to it.
