          it is just what i was looking for. Dare to say, the long strap is too long for me since i'm short & theres no adjustment available. BUT I really don't mind and it does what i was looking for with very reasonable price. can't complain.

                Used for 3 weddings now, great bag for a great price. Long enough to hold my Cheetah light stands with flash connectors attached. Pocket large enough to hold extra accessories.

                  Don't scare the low price. Nothing too good to be true. No fancy. But good work horse. You paid 3 times more but get the same thing. Also a good soft case for rifle/shot gun.

                      This bag works great for carrying two tripods with extensions. I am also able to include a microphone stand to make an even easier job of carrying multiple pieces of equipment.

                      Don't expect to fit a (Manfrotto) 42 inch tripod with head in this bag. These were purchased for light stands but thought I'd try to fit one in. One inch too short. Oh well, they are perfect for what they are. Just enough padding to protect item. Would be nice if they made a 45 incher for just a little more pesos. Ciao

                        We purchased this bag as a replacement for a FloLight light stand bag. This bag is much sturdier and the zipper seems less likely to come apart (which happened very quickly on the original bag). It's just the right size for the stands. I waited 4 months to write this review, just to see if an inexpensive bag was going to hold up - and it did. I'm ordering 3 more today!

                          The construction of the tripod bag appears to be very good, and there is just enough padding to give the tripod the protection it needs without making it bulky and cumbersome.

                            We needed a bag that would us allow to carry our small tripod a long distance. And the Ruggard Tripod case was perfect for the job. The long strap and reinforced end really came through for us. It allowed us to strap the tripod over our shoulder for easy carry and access. Our videographer was able to carry it the entire day as we treked around every corner of a very popular large theme park. It is classy looking too. The stitiching held up to a lot of rigourous use.

                                I use this for my standard length Kessler pocket dolly. It's not as padded as I'd like it to be for this use, but it is how it's described and is an afforable quick alternative.

                                    I ordered this case for transporting my 3' slider and it works perfectly. It has a little bit of padding, just enough to protect my slider, and the price was just right. It also has a nice zippered pocket on the side.

                                      I purchased this case to make it easier to transport a tripod and for simple storage. It does this well.

                                      The case is well made of strong materials and is well sewn. The amount of padding is minimal, but I wouldn't expect much protection for a tripod.

                                      Do be careful about the cross section sizing. One of my tripod heads (a big, ugly Bogen) was too large to fit without unscrewing a couple of handles.

                                          We purchased 2 of these bags to transport light stands: 3-4 stands per bag. Rather than one large bag we found this strategy more manageable. Lightweight, large exterior pocket is very useful.
