    Overall I'm pleased with the bag, strap is adjustable and is of the proper length. Bag opens from the middle and zippers the entire length so getting the tripod in and out is pretty quick. Only drawback is that the bag is not wide/tall enough to fit the 055X Pro tripod and the 503HDV Pro fluid head with the handle attached. Handle must be removed in order for the bag to be zipped up. Length of the pod is not a problem with the head attached.

    This bag is quite simply not as advertised and B&H should change the description. If being made of fabric qualifies as padding then I guess your T-shirt is also.Knew I wasn't getting what was advertized when I saw it in package. If you can fold a 36" tripod bag and shove in envelope less than an inch thick then the bag isn't padded. Frankly, I was stunned that even an unpadded 36" bag could be folded three times and be less than an inch thick. To say I'm disappointed is an understatement.[...]I love B&H and have always been happy with my purchases from them.[...] I'll be disappointed if they continue to promote this bag as a padded bag. As to Manfrotto - well they don't exactly share that same stellar reputation and now I see why. B&H shouldn't allow their reputaion to be tainted by accepting Manfrotto's description unchallenged.

    This is a very strong bag for your tripod. I do feel it is more bag than needed. In fact I can carry 2 tripods in this bad.

    A simple yet functional bag

    By Mark

    from NYC

    Comments about Manfrotto AW-3280B 35" Tripod Bag:

    This is a great simple bag for tripods, small light stands, etc. It is not padded, so if you baby your gear you may want to look for a more protective bag. This is as basic as it gets, but it works!

      32.5" Tripod Doesn't Fit

      By Justine Haupt

      from Rocky Point, NY

      Comments about Manfrotto AW-3280B 35" Tripod Bag:

      The bag quality seems fine but my Manfrotto 525MVB tripod and 503 head with two pan handles, which measures 32.5" fully compressed, doesn't fit.

      The inside length of the bag does appear to be 35" but when I try squeezing this tripod/head in, it winds up 1-2" short.

          I needed a simple bag and this does the trick, but it is too small to be versatile. If you have a big head, I would recommend a wider and sturdier bag.

                Great bag for the two Manfrotto products I own (tripod and monopod each with separate manfrotto heads). Just returned from shooting a college graduation in the rain and the bag served well. It protected the gear and provided the right shoulder strap support for the tripod. Lugging equipment that was hard to set down because of the weather was made easier because of this well made and well thought out product. The exterior pocket easily holds additional QR plates and other small accessories.

                      Use it with my Manfrotto 055 Carbon Fiber legs and a Kirk Ballhead. Fits easily with space left over. Bag seems to be well made, just as other similar bags I have purchased in various sizes for other tripods. It's lightweight, but has some thin padding throughout so it does offer some added protection to your tripod when packing it with other gear and doing location shooting, etc. Not much more to say, really. The little side pocket is nice for things like extra camera plates, and the little plastic thingy that you can tighten the leg locks on the Manfrotto tripods with. No logo, label, or any indication that it is a Manfrotto product. Just a plain black case, but that is not a bad thing. The only reason I gave it just 4 stars was there is really nothing exceptional about it. It's a good bag/case.

                        Both this to go with my Manfrotto tripod. Was expecting quality at $50 a pop. Thin, cheap and did I say cheap? I would pay $15 for this bag. $50? I'm going to dig out my paperwork. They must have sent me the wrong bag for the money.

                        I purchased this as a suggestion for a carry bag for my Manfrotto tripod. The bag is very roomy. I was able to put a couple of beach towels in it to carry it to the beach. My only negative it that the dye or the fabric it's made of has a strong odor. I put it outside for a couple of days to let it air out. It helped but did not eliminate it completely.

                              I purchased 2 of these. I got one for the Manfrotto 561BHDV-1 Fluid Video Monopod and Head combo, and another for Manfrotto 755XB MDeVe Aluminum Video Tripod Legs w/ 701 HDV head. Both support systems fit perfectly inside the bags.

                              I have another Manfrotto bag I got about 13 years ago for my 3251/501 combo (still going strong too), and the bag is still holding up well after over a decade of use! That's good construction right there.

                              The bags I received recently, seem to be made to the same level of robustness and quality. Good materials, good stitching, and rugged feeling.

                              I expect these 2 bags to last over a decade as well!

                                This weekend will be the first time I'm using it. What I can say is it feels padded and I wasn't expecting that. I'm really hoping the tripod head and feet will fit. The reason why I didn't give it 5 stars is because it stinks. I left it out to air out and then I sprayed it with some Bath and Body Works spritz :). It doesn't smell as bad now.

                                  Very useful product when you go backpacking in search for the 'ultimate photo'.The size is great and convenient.
                                  The only thing I don't like about it is the smell that came out when i unpacked the product.

                                  A very convenient, useful product for your backpacking photo trips..

                                  A decent but flawed tripod carry bag. Would not recommend.

                                      As an aspiring film maker and videographer, having solid products that are easy to carry is a must. The AW-3280B 32: Tripod bag by Manfrotto is encompasses that very design. It is light, compact, and sturdy. With many locations and sometimes limited space, a product that provides duratibility and comfort is a plus.

                                        I'm getting a second one. You can fit one standard size tripod or two standard light stands (not meaning C stands).
