      Comments about Hakuba PSTC 100 Tripod Case:

      I carry a smaller tripod and head for wedding videography and this perfectly fits (within a half inch) my Manfrotto 055CXPRO4 tripod with HD502AH head. I like the small pocket on the outside for little adapters and other tripod accessories and the small plastic window for my name and other such tags in case I travel.

      Shoulder strap is nice, pocket is nice, good padding, very good price compared to Manfrotto. I have Manfrotto 055 tripod and head and they fit fine with the head folded, even though according to the speck I am one inch short.

        Bought it for the Gitzo 3541LS and it fits perfectly.
        The bag material is very nice and the construction looks and feels well made. Very happy with the purchase.

              Gitzo does not make a case for the GM5541. I tried hard to find a case which would work. My problem was made more complex because I had a RRS MH-01 with padded case and 3" Large Foot.

              This bag fits everything handily. I am impressed.

                I've been eyeing these cases for a while and I'm glad I finally picked one up. Good construction and value. The PSTC 100 fits two Avenger A625B light stands and two umbrellas perfectly. I love it.

                      Although it will only fit very small tripods, this case offers great protection to the gear and is very well built.

                        I bought this for my Gitzo 3542LS with RRS BH-55 ball head. For those of you who have this tripod and ball head...you will think this bag is custom made because the fit is just right.The bag itself is compact, very well made and offered at a modest cost compared to many other bags out there.One note is the padding where the ball head resides in the bag is thinner than the rest of the bag. Not a big deal overall but about the only thing I can think of that may be a concern with others. I keep the ball head bag that came with the BH-55 on-top of the tripod/ball head combo...always have. All 3 fit nicely inside.

                                I own 4 Hakuba tripod bags. The 400, 2x 200, and one 100.

                                These bags are well priced, and well padded for their intended use.

                                The 400 is used to carry a Cinevate LTS slider. I use the 200's to carry various lightstands, and manfrotto tripod/monopods.

                                The 100 was a recent buy, to hold my Glidecam 4000HD. It fits it perfect along with the docking bracket. Of course the parts do touch eachother while in the bag, so I use some bubble wrap to keep them from scratching against each other. The small pocket on the outside is great for holding extra weights and parts (allen keys etc).

                                In all, I highly recommend the Hakuba Tripod cases.

                                  This should have been one of the first bags I should have bought for my stands. I actually have two light stands, two umbrellas, and my flash on the outside pocket with difusser to carry around with me. It also has an inside pocket which I put some spigets in. Very durable too great quality product.

                                        Really a nice bag. Very good fit and finish with decent padding. The only thing lacking was adequate padding on the end section of the case at the wide side, where I assume the head is supposed to go. I'm using this with a set of compact Feisol legs and my Sachtler Ace head, and feel it is generally well protected except a bit less right at the top were the quick release plate is on the head. I cut a 4x4x3/4" piece of dense foam and tuck it between fluid head and bag, and it is perfect. Would buy again!

                                          Great well built tripod bag. I bought this bag for my GT3542Ls & RRS BH-55. it fit my gear perfectly. The think pad protects my tripod nicely.

                                            I didn't use this for a Tri-pod case. I used it for my spotting scope with camera. Worked great!! Very well built!

                                            Comments about Hakuba PSTC 100 Tripod Case:

                                            I watched a Scott Kelby video in which he recommended a good lightweight strobist light kit to use with a softbox, speedlight, and a stand. He posted a link on the video with the products that he recommended. The problem is, this particular case won't fit the light stand. I suspect that the case he used in the video, is the bigger size Hakuba PSTC200. I was thinking about returning this item, when I realized that I could use a carry case for my Manfrotto tripod 055PROB. If I remove the ball head, it fits perfectly for that. I like the quality of this case so much, I then ordered the PSTC 200 for my light stands. These cases are heavy duty, nicely padded, and look very professional. I like the lifetime warranty.
