      I use this bag for my lightstands when travelling locally. It is simple, lightweight and sturdy allowing me to strap it onto my magliner and set off for location. It is not padded, which in my case is a plus because it is not bulky.I have worn one out when stuffing too many stands(8?) into it. The zipper gave out after many years of abuse.

      Fine but not for me

      This bag does the trick for carrying stands and such, plus I have one already. But I wanted it's smaller brother. I was given the wrong size and so returned it.

        Comments about Tenba T488 TriPak:

        I use the bag to carry a light stand, crossbar for a background, and a tripod. The bag is made of a quality material and the zipper seems to be a heavy duty zipper that won't get snagged or break over time. The only thing that bothers me about the bag is that it does not zip all of the way closed because the zipper is on a loop that does not have a definite ending location.

          This is my first Tenba bag. I've known about Tenba for a long time, but this is the first one I've owned. I purchased a bunch of Calumet Lite Panels (same size as the discontinued Bogen Lightforms - Dean Collins - I've had for a while), and bought this bag to store/transport them in . I can easily get three frames, a set of legs, and several fabrics in the case. Would buy again.

              I have needed something that would accomodate my tripod for SO long - something that would accomodat all 48" of it so that I don't have to take off the head every time I insert it into its case. This case not only accomodates that but also my new 47" Revo sliders and my monopods. Excellent quality and great room!

                    I was looking for an inexpensive bag for my tripod and lightstands. Lots of wheeled options but wanted a carry on. This was a good choice! Just enough room for 2 - 43" lightstands and 1-manfrotto tripod with head. The strap is long enough to carry around the shoulder comfortably. The fabric seems durable enough to withstand some abuse but it is not a padded bag.

                    Finally decided to replace my non brand name light stand bag for the Tenba and I regret not doing it sooner. I fit 1 13' stand, 2 6' stands, variety sized umbrellas and a Westcott softbox with no issues. The quality of the bag is fantastic and I'm sue it will last me for a few years if not longer.

                    This bag'll handle years of abuse from airlines and cab drivers. As has been pointed out, there's no padding in this bag. The idea is that you fill it with stands and a tripod that don't need padding. In a pinch, use extension cords and other unbreakables from your grip kit as filler.
                    Only con: straps are a bit too long for me unless slung across a shoulder (which can be very awkward with a full, heavy bag, though it does free up another hand for carrying).

                          I've only had it a few weeks so hard to say how it will hold up long term but:
                          handle looks very strong (going right round the bag in one piece).

                          You can fit the 42" 5 in 1 reflector in the bad but its a bit of a squeeze to the point that the zip is a bit under stress - so I probably won't be doing that.
