    I'll repeat my earlier idea: K&M 107. Easily foldable, fits into the music stand pocket of my gig bag, and has proved itself over many years - even withstood heavy books during Irish seaside concerts. It's windproof up to half a gale, comes handy (and K&M sell a very good carrier bag for it, with a sturdy shoulder strap) and will do any playing job. Outside, inside, rain or shine - that stand won't desert you. I bought mine in 1990, and it's still looking as if it were fresh out of the boxy, even though it is being folded and set up three to four times daily.

    Well, if I'm going to haul bricks (and a big sheet of plexi), what's the point of buying a light music stand? :)

    So that you have a semi-believable answer when somebody asks you about the bricks and the plexiglass.

    Personally I would like a music stand which folds flat enough to fit into the music pouch on my Torpedo bag without digging into my back when I'm on the bike.

    Hercules. Fold down small. Come in their own bag and are very strong. If it's outdoors and windy, put your foot on the legs.

    I use the Peterson folding music standhttp://www.mindamusicstore.com/prodimages/PetSet.jpg. Fits into a small package, and while light for outdoors in the wind, it is easy to put your foot to keep in grounded. It also fits into the outside pocket of a ProTec trumpet case.
