          Comments about Giottos AA1252 Padded Tripod Case:

          I use this for a Manfrotto 190xprob with compact ballhead attached. Fits easily with a bit of extra room length-wise. The padding/price ratio is exactly what I was looking for, ie better than just a bag, but not quite enough that I would trust it as a checked airline bag, for instance. But for storage and transport it is perfect.

              I was able to carry a small Gitzo tripod plus a small light stand with ease. Both the stand and tripod fit in my suitcase along with the folded up case, and when I arrived in Europe I had a nice, compact carrying solution.

                    I bought this instead of the recommended non-padded Manfrotto case for the tripod that I have.
                    This case was less expensive and padded.
                    It fits well with my tripod and serves me well.
                    So far, so good !

                          This is a very nice case. My Pormaster 7150 tripod fits perfectly. It seems to be very well made and the padded case should protect my tripod for many years of use. The price wasn't bad either.

                              The bag is solidly constructed, with sturdy zippers. Totally practical in all respects. It fits my Manfrotto 293 legs with ball head with space to spare. I owned another Giottos bag in a different size (same design) and it lasted for years of rugged use. I anticipate the same good results from this one.

                              Nice rugged construction. Fits my tripod to a "T". easy to get the tripod in and out.

                              only drawback is that it does not come with a carrying strap, just handles so it is a little bulky until you get a strap for it

                                    It fits my "Giottos" tripod, with room for a ball head mounted. There is a handy strap included in the little inside zipped pocket. I didn't get a bag with my tripod because it was an off-brand [*] make, but actually a Giottos with a different name, and it came in a Giottos carton.So probably a little side project from the [*] company making Giottos. This bag wasn't expensive, but the postage from USA to NZ was, at twice the price of the bag. But I couldn't find one anywhere else in the world. So whatever I saved by buying off brand I had to pay to buy the bag, without which you can't transport a tripod anywhere, rendering it useless. Sometimes you can't win.

                                      I purchased this case for my Giottos MT 7370 tripod with an Oben BB-2 ball head and it is a perfect fit. The material is top quality, especially the extra heavy duty zipper. The case has a zippered pouch inside that is perfect for a small tool kit. I use this tripod case mostly for storage and travel and it works great.

                                      Very good tripod bag for lighter and smaller tripods. Compare to Gitzo 3100 which is 105$ it is great value and can be replaced after few years of heavy use.

                                        This case is exactly what I was looking for. Nice, heavy cordura, with decent padding, strong dual zippers. This model was perfect for me, it's big enough to hold my mono-pod AND tripod without leaving a bunch of extra room for them to roll around.

                                          Quality is better than what I was expecting.
                                          Will Sure make taking the tripod along alot easier.

                                          The inside pocket is great for carrying the shoulder strap when not in use, though you'll want to wrap tape around the zipper so it doesn't scratch up your tripod.

                                          The bag is sufficiently padded for carrying around and putting in your trunk, but not for airline handling - you'd definitely want to wrap some sweaters around your tripod and put a neoprene bag over the head.

                                          Specs are 28", but I easily slipped my 30" setup into this bag - Manfrotto 055CXPRO3 with Acratech GV2 ballhead.

                                              Size well matched to Gitzo 2542L with 2780QR head mounted. Not as over-wide as many tripod bags, actually nice looking. Interior pocket is large enough for the 'manual' and misc. pieces in the little Gitzo bag supplied with the tripod, unlike some other bags. Could use more rigidity or extra padding at one end for the head, so I'll probably keep a neoprene lens bag on the head. Will look for same bag in other sizes for other tripods.

                                                    I mainly used this case for my Manfrotto Tripod with ball head and an Induro monopod and fits perfectly both inside the case. Texture is sturdy enough and can handles the weight. Like the shoulder strap too to easy carry. Lives to my expectations. Definitely recommended and the price is worth it!

                                                      Great Padded Tripod Case for my Manfrotto 190B with Ball Head. Zippers look like they will hold up. Padding looks like should be just enough to protect the tripod. Shoulder strap should hold up even with a heavy aluminum tripod and head. Picked this case over the one from Manfrotto, But not as heavy duty as my Gitzo Padded Tripod Bag which costs 2x.

                                                        I have found the right tripod case for valuable money. Important thing is padding inside because I use not cheap ball head.
