      It is just right for covering my Wemberly Sidekick mounted on a Gitzo 3541LS. For those considering other uses, don't count on the drawstring closing the top tight. It closes it some (enough to tighten in around the base of the ballhead when mounted on the tripod)and enough to hold the Sidekick alone for storage padding, but there is still a pretty wide opening. The material is too thick for the drawstring to draw real tight. Not a problem for most purposes, but be aware if you want this for some other storage use.

      Well Made but a little Tight .

      This well made product is a little tight on the Wimberley Gimbal head WH 200.

        Comments about OP/TECH USA Gimbal Head Cover (Black):

        I wasn't sure that the cover as advertised would work for me so I called and spoke to a tech. He checked out the specs for my gimbal and told me it was a go. He was right and the cover works just as promised....an economical solution, well made and well padded. As usual, thanks B&H.

        OP/Tech-USA Neoprene Gimbal head cover.

        By The Teal Guy.

        from Ocean City, New Jersey

        Comments about OP/TECH USA Gimbal Head Cover (Black):

        This is an excellent cover to protect your expensive Gimbal head while in transit, or in storage. I purchased the same model three years ago for my Wimberley Gimbal, and it was slightly thicker (1mm) material then the newer model. The newer version is slightly wider though. It's still made of quality material and sewn together well. The usual quality I've come to expect from the many product's I own made by OP/Tech-USA. [I still would have liked to see it made of the older thicker neoprene material!]Any little extra over-kill protection I can get is always welcome! And I've always found OP/Tech-USA products to be a much better dollar value then the same item made by LensCoat: which are ALWAYS more expensive! Pleased with this product, and would recommend it to anyone wanting some protection for their Gimbal head.

          This cover fits over a Sirui PH-20 Gimbal Head very well. I am pleased with the construction and thickness of the material. The drawstring closes tightly over the base of the head.

            The OpTech gimbal cover fits my Induro GHB2 like a glove, protects it in transport, and is easy to get on and off. What more could you ask for. I've seen where the other brand cover is a bit harder to remove.

              I bought the OP/Tech gimbal cover when I purchased the Wimberly WH-200 gimbal head. The cover fits snugly and is perfect for the head. It is an excellent accessory for the Wimberly.

                just what I wanted, nice protection for gimbal head when on or off the tripod.
                Nicely padded. Cover the head with it and drop into your bag knowing the gimbal is protected.
                I leave it on when ever the gimbal is not in use.

                    [$] This case fulfills all of the needs to keep it clean and scratch free. It is well designed with thick padding. I would have preferred either a velcro, snap or zipper closure rather than the drawstring but it is overall an excellent case.
