              Haven't used this enough to see how durable it is, but it seems great so far. My tripod is a little shorter, so it leaves about a foot of space for other things. I really like that.

                Just the right amount of protection for packing in your car. Not heavy enough for air cargo, but otherwise just perfect. Nice to have the inside pocket. Two way zipper is very easy to use and seems like it will be durable.

                  Well padded and well priced.
                  Gitzo 3530S with ball head fits well (not too snugg, not too sloshy), with room for a sweatshirt, notepad, etc.
                  Dual zippers facilitate access.

                      I bought this bag because of the reviews of others. It is perfect for my tripod and head. Padding is nice and zipper heavy duty.

                            I have two Manfrotto tripods with ball heads. After reading reviews that indicated the Manfrotto cases were too tight and noting the price of those cases I looked elsewhere. This Giottos case works well for both the 055CXPRO3 and the 055XPROB with ball heads. There is 4 - 5" to spare on the length which leaves room for anything else one would wish to include in the case. It is of good quality construction, lightly padded, has a hand strap, and a shoulder strap. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that I wish it had a little more padding. Overall a great case and I would recommend it to anyone.

                                  I am always in a hurry, throwing my gear into the back of my car, and needed a case from my heavy Manfrotto tripod, with room to spare - not really to protect it but to make it easy to carry and stop it from damaging other piece of equipment. This case is perfect, very good value for money, and well made. Thank you Giottos and B&H

                                    Good durable, well made bag. Price is right.
                                    Allowed me to put my Manfrotto 294 with 3-way head attached in this bag as well as a monopod. Good fit. Manfrotto bag too expensive... opted for this one.

                                        My Giotto tripod fits perfectly in this bag and is well protected by the padded case. Inside pocket is great for storing handles for the tripod head. Very good value compared to other cases I saw. I am very happy with this purchase!!!

                                          As stated, not flashy, or fancy, but holds my manfrotto carbon 4 section with pistol grip ball head in place, and some other accessories.

                                          I use this to hold a Gitzo self-leveling tripod with an Arca-Swiss monoball head. I got it after I had dropped my tripod and scratched the head before I had even used it once. It works well but it would be even better if it had some attachment points to enable it to be easily strapped to a photo backpack or bag during transit.

                                              I needed a bag for my Manfrotto 055xprob and Manfrotto 498RC2. However, I didn't want to spend the money on a padded Manfrotto bag just to match. I am more than happy with this choice as it fit my tripod system very well, offers good padding and looks good too. I really couldn't ask for anything more in a case at this price as I already feel they lived up to their purpose for far less money then other companies. Are there better bags out there? Of course! Are they in this price range? Not a chance! Unless you are a professional photographer WITH 2000.00 set of legs then this case if for you. Very happy with it from build quality to its longevity.

                                                  I bought this to fit my Manfrotto 055XPROB tripod with Manfrotto 498RC2 Ball Head. Perfect fit. Lightly padded, heavy duty construction. Love the handle strap as well as a shoulder strap for more versatility. Great Bag!

                                                    This case was the perfect size. I'm able to put my tripod in with the ball head on. It gives it the protection needed when traveling with it in my car.

                                                          For the price you can't ask for much more. The padding is a little thin, but the bag seems to be well made. I was looking for an inexpensive, padded tripod bag and this fit the bill perfectly.

                                                            The measurements given on the website were accurate. I measured my tripod and chose this bag based on the size and price. This PADDED bag costs less than many non-padded bags. It has large zippers that work smoothly, it protects my tripod, is easy to carry, and looks good to boot. What more can you ask from a tripod bag?

                                                                I bought this for my Manfrotto 055CXPRO3 and 468MGRC2 ball head. I didn't want to spend a huge amount of money on a tripod bag and really just needed some basic padding for when I transport my gear in the car. The padding is enough to protect it reasonably well, but it definitely is not "checked bag" worthy if you are looking for something for planes. This particular bag is very roomy and well built. I probably should've gone with the 31" bag as this one is a little too big for my gear but the smaller bag as much more expensive. The zippers work well and overall the bag seems like it's very durable. Strap isn't padded but thats ok I guess.
