Like most here I've used bins, reels and cases. What I did recently though is only carry 15 and 50 foot lengths. They're back on reels due to the other guys helping load out but with only these two length there's less confusion and quicker set up.

I have only 15' (red) and 30' (blue) mic cables and several sub-snakes.  I've been very happy with that particular decision.  I over/under most of my cables, although I will straight coil the shorter lengths.  The band I am the BE for has their own PA and uses a single reel for all mic cables.  We run into the issue of un-spooling a very long cable when you only need 20', but the biggest issue is when the connections separate on the spool.  This can create quite a mess to untangle if the person doesn't stop and correct the issue right away.  The more banged up your mic cables are, the more likely this is to occur.

This tool case from Homie D's works for me for storing speaker, power and other misc cables.

I use something like this for my mics, mounts and mic cables:

I dig those. Might take a look at them. We just have miscellaneous bags, carts, etc... for cables as we are just a weekend warrior cover band of 50 year olds.  So while the Audiopile stuff is really nice, it's also pricey.

How do you keep your mics safe in the Fatmax?  We have a Gator soft case which I'm already considering upgrading to something solid (one or two of the band members aren't the most careful with stuff).
