      I use this bag to carry a 055X Pro tripod with 496 Ball head. The equipment fits with some extra head room (maybe an 1-2 inches; 2.52-5.04 cm). There is plenty of room in the sides for the tripod to fit comfortably. There is a zipper on the interior that is able to hold thin/small items, but I do not use it. The material is rugged enough that I am comfortable setting it down just about anywhere. I do not know if it is water resistant or water proof, but the material feels like it is at least resistant. I do not suggest taking my word for it and risking your equipment, whatever it may be.

      The shoulder strap is gummy and comfortable to use slung over a shoulder, worn like a messenger bag, or set shoulder-to-hip (like a sword, I guess). The bag is soft enough that the tripod inside does not cause any discomfort when worn shoulder-to-hip for long hikes. The shoulder strap is not very long. Left at default, the tripod bag will hug me to a degree. I am of slender build (138 lbs at 6 ft; 62.6 kg at 182.8 cm).

      Bottom line:
      If you want a bag to carry a tripod and not much else, look no further (unless you need a different length). If you want more of a duffel bag, I suggest looking at other products. I listed its minimalistic nature as a con only to make it clear should one skip the review and read only the pro/con bit. I don't feel its minimalist design to be a con, but others may.

      Large enough to fit my Manfrotto 190XPROL tripod with the Manfrotto 498 ball head attached. The width of the bag is very generous, a little too much room in my situation. The padded strap is very nice, it won't slide off your shoulder easily.

        Comments about Cullmann MAGNESIT PodBag 400:

        I bought this tripod bag about 2.5 years ago from today and it is still going strong. It is perfect for my Manfrotto tripod, and although the 3 way pan head is huge (model 804RC2), if I configure the head in a particular way I can still fit it inside this tripod bag. What's great about it is the padded shoulder strap - I really couldn't find any other tripod bag that has this feature, and it goes a long way to making carrying my tripod that much easier. The most annoying thing about other bags is the strap has relatively sharp edges, whereas the padded strap on this bag makes it so much more comfortable. You really do get a lot for what you pay for, and more for this bag. I love it so much I am waiting to buy a second one right now as I write this review for a second tripod I got. I just wish more tripod bags were like this.

            I bought this case to carry a Magnesit 522 tripod. It is a protective bag with plenty of room for accessories you might want to carry. A good value.

                    I ordered this case for my Vanguard Alta Pro 283 CB 100 Tripod W/SBH 100 Ballhead, and the tripod w/ballhead fits perfectly with a little room (but not too much room) to spare. I'm pleased that it isn't too large since it'll need to fit into my suitcase for international travel. The quality of the case is excellent and sturdy enough for my needs (urban and nature photography, nothing too rugged). There is a zipper-lined pocket on the inside that runs almost the entire length of the case. It probably wouldn't fit anything too bulky but would come in handy for papers and small accessories. The strap sits comfortably on the shoulder thanks to its gel-like rubber padding. Overall really great product, and more than I hoped for.

                        Since my first review of this bag I just wanted to say how well this bag has held up for me. I have hiked miles with this holding my Manfrotto pro 055xprob and its done excellent for me. Love the size, shoulder strap and the leather bottom. I thought It would need a carry handle on it, but its not needed. I have to give it 5 stars this time.

                            Well design padded bottom makes it easy to stand on end. Plenty of extra room with a zipper pocket on the inside.

                                  Nice compact bag with padded shoulder strap. I use this with my Monfrotto 055XPROB tripod and it fits great. I like it because its not big and bulky like a lot of other tripod bags. Now for the things I don`t like. It does not have a carry handle for your hand and shoulder strap at bottom could use another reinforcement strap to make it stronger, but only time will tell how well it holds up. Also inside of the bottom where the tripod legs rest there is no rubber in the base to reinforce it. Over time I wonder will the legs start to protrude through the leather bottom. I went to lowes and bought a 4 inch rubber pipe cap that you use on pvc pipe and inserted that at the base of the bag to make it stronger.

                                    I bought this tripod bag for my Manfrotto 055probx tripod. This bag holds the tripod with the Manfrotto 498rc2 head attached with some room to spare. The shoulder strap is very comfortable and the bag is well made. It also has a zippered compartment inside that is very long which makes it useful for other equipment.The part I like the best is that this bag does not scream "Tripod inside".

                                        Dimensions are accurate. I measured my Daiwa tripod against the specs and it ended up fitting perfectly. Now I can feel safe tossing the tripod into the back of my car with other gear and it not getting scratched up. I would prefer if it had a handle in addition to the shoulder strap, but other than that it's perfect.

                                          This is a good case for a professional size tripod with a head attached. I fit Manfrotto 055CXPRO3 Carbon Fiber 3 Section Tripod with Kirk BH-1 Ball-head attached! Well, I turn it a little, but it fits no problem with some space around the tripod's body. It has an internal pocket for additional accessories (screw driver, wrench, etc.).The main advantage that I see is the fact that it is air-travel friendly. Most airlines allow a specific size carry-on only. Originally, I bought a "cadillac" of the bags - Manfrotto MBAG80PN Padded Tripod Bag. It was awesome, the padding was the best, but two things did not suit well with me (and the airlines):1. It had a big bright Manfrotto logo along its side, which screamed: "Steal me!"2. It had one end enlarged (I assume for panning heads?) and summary of three dimensions did not meet airline's requirements these days (L+W+D=<45).So, I was not willing to bet $700 on honesty of baggage handling personnel and back it went.This one fits the requirements and it is discrete. The only reason why I gave it 4 stars is the padding. It is not enough in my opinion, but if you handle it personally and do not throw it around it should do.

                                            This case is simple, affordable and fits perfectly. I use it with the Manfrotto 055XProB with the 808RC4 head w/ Quick-release and the fit is perfect, even with the large quick-release plate, and the zippered inner pocket holds the three hand grips with room to spare. Just enough padding for secure carrying. Simple and effective design.

                                                It's a great looking case and it's as comfortable as you'd want it to be but the shoulder strap on mine tore within the first week. Since there's no handle and only the strap, it's not usable to me anymore.

                                                  I was looking for a case/bag for my Manffrotto 055xprob tripod with HorusBennu LX-3T ball head. I googled it but i couldn't find what i want. After weeks i found this bag, 55398 Magnesyt Series Tripod case by Cullmann. This tripod is exactly what i want. This tripod is compact, padded, have an amazing shoulder strap (you need to touch it by your self), easy to use, fits well, sturdy and relatively cheap.

                                                  Case is good with enough thick of pad and strong material. price also in reason. Diameter are too big to contain any tripods.

                                                  This case is great, but i had to buy a new one because the zipper went bad on my old one. I got about a year and a half use out of it. Does the job for the price, but don't expect it to last for 10 years.

                                                  I love this case! I wasn't willing to spend a couple hundred dollars on some fancy tripod case. I just needed something a little better than the cardboard box the thing came in to carry and store it in. This case is PERFECT! No, it doesn't have any padding, but if you're a casual photographer who takes care of your gear that just isn't a problem. The case has a generous zippered pocket inside to hold straps or a remote shutter release. The carry strap has a gel-like shoulder pad that's incredibly comfortable. All in all, I couldn't have asked for a better case to fit my needs.
