          Comments about Gitzo GC3101 Padded Tripod Bag:

          GC3101, may fit Gitzo GT4542LS+Head better, if legs has not been padded. The joint at which the shoulder/upper part of the tripod meets the upper part of the top section, is the reason for snug fitting. Legs padding may contribute in the snug fitting.Still very happy with my purchase, because there is no wasted space, and the next larger case is 4" longer(GC4101, bulky and tripod can move inside).Also, this case has a uniform width overall it's length. Not the same with the next larger one.With Gitzo series 4 tripod inside, GC3101 is Not for luggage.Materials could be better as the price could be lower.

              I purchased the bag for my Gitzo 3542L tripod and Arca-Swiss Z1 Monoball (mounted on the tripod). It's a perfect fit and the quality is great. Very pleased with the purchase.

              Comments about Gitzo GC3101 Padded Tripod Bag:

              I've only had the bag for a week now. I upgraded from a Hakuba (400) I think? One of the ends blew out on it. I guess that's what you get when you cheap out on a bag. It seems like you get what you pay for. On the other hand, when you're on a budget,you may have to cut corners. From just my personal first impression, the ripstop nylon does not seem as sturdy as a cordura. This brings up concerns of longevity. It's not a cheap bag. Secondly, it's quite a snug fit for my Gitzo 3541 Legs.I have a Sunwayfoto DDH Low profile panning ballhead on it. This head is eqivilent to the RRS 52 (then next one down from the 55). Lastly, I do miss the extra external pouch which the Hakuba has. The gitzo has a small, thin internal satin pouch. I wouldn't put any allen tools or objects that would gouge the carbon legs. I'm on the fence about the fit. Not sure if a snug fit, protects my legs better or not.
