The strap that goes around near the top is key. The modular hauler 4 lacks this strap and the entire unit flops around. Also has attachment points for a shoulder strap (that does not come with it) that the Modular 4 is lacking. Yes the extra cube is nice, but having your stuff restrained is nicer...

Lucky to have found this bag at an outstanding price here on STC. I use these bags individually and together and to haul or pick up things from one place to the next and back again. It's modularity is its highlight and the whole package provides ample room for all my needs. I even use the tote by itself to transport laundry to my apartments laundry room. I take it camping and bbqing at the beach as I can just throw it in the back of my truck. At home I use it to organize gear in my closet. Good product Mountainsmith.
The hauler has piping for free-standing access, but the modular units only have cross panel webbing for added stability. They will stand on their own though.

No; mine collapse almost flat and are unlined.

No, the modular units do not stand alone.|Maybe once they are full, they might.|But, they are too flexible and soft to stand.

No foam sides. That would be nice.

There isn't any foam on the sides of the Mountainsmith modular Hauler but the modules fit well in their carrier by using straps to compress the modules. The modules have a see through top and also a storage slot to keep a storage inventory list or whatever.

The cubes aren't standalone. They fold flat. In order for them to fill up the space allotted in the hauler, they need to have something in them.

They don't have rigid foam sides. It isn't a problem if you stuff the individual bags full- The outer bag has no foam sides either-
