I purchased this bag for my Bogen Pro Model 3221 Tripod with a Smith Victor Black Diamond BH8 Pro Ballhead. This bag is very well made, and sturdy. The padding is excellent, and will protect your gear very well. There also is a pocket on the inside, as well as one on the outside for carrying other items. Over all a great bag, and good investment. Money well spent.

Quality made, exterior pocket is nice - length was just right for my new tripod with ball head. But the bag itself is much to "fat", resulting in unnecessary bulkiness and space taken up. Tough to carry on an airplane, but not sturdy enough to resist checked baggage. Still a good bag, even with its limitations.

Comments about Hakuba PSTC 200 Tripod Case:

I use this tripod case precisely for carrying my tripod around on my shoulder. Overall, it is a comfortable carrying case. My 33" tripod perfectly fits lengthwise. What left me wanting is the width of the case. This case looks more round on pictures, but when you get it, it looks like half a guitar case. I purchased it before my recent air travel and was afraid that I might be asked to surrender the tripod into checked baggage due to size. All went well though, and I was able to take it on the plane as a personal item both ways. A flight attendant thought that I had a musical instrument in it. The case is a little too wide, unfortunately. It has a tapered, triangular shape, which purpose I still don't understand. The tripod has too much wiggle room inside, especially on the wider end. I prefer a more exact fit.

    Comments about Hakuba PSTC 200 Tripod Case:

    This case is way better than i expected it to be. Its nice to be surprised when you order something online based only on the description and size. I had heard others talk of Hakuba's reputation though so that helped.

    This bag is well made, seems like it will stand up to any abuse I can give it. Zippers are top notch, the case is sized for the way a tripod is stored when folded being larger overall through the end where the head is, slimmer where the legs fold to meet at the other end. The fabric is heavy duty....just nothing to complain about here. Even has a useful shoulder strap.

    It holds my Gitzo3542XLS with RRS BH-55 ballhead securely. The side pocket holds all the extra "stuff" like spikes, wrenches, etc.

    Comments about Hakuba PSTC 200 Tripod Case:

    Found that it is easier to carry my tripod hand held or hanging off my backpack in the field rather than in a case. But this is great for storage and traveling and having something to protect your tripod. Well made. Light. Has room for 2 tripods or other objects. Inside pockets. Good value.

        2 mini C-stands fit into this case, awkwardly. But it seems sturdy enough - it's weathered several airlines pretty well so far.

                                        After several attempts in finding the right bag this one works great with my Manfrotto tripod and ball head. It is priced right. It is padded real well, the zippers are well made, and the shoulder and hand strap are designed to fit comfortably. For a generic bag I highly recommend Hakuba tripod cases. B & H was a very helpful in choosing the right bag for my need. Thank you B & H

                                          I got this padded soft bag as an included item with a Manfrotto tripod/head package I recently purchased and I wanted to try it out. I always get soft bags for my tripods now, dropped them too many times in the past with bad results. I used to buy the Manfrotto bag (junk, tears apart in a year). I recently purchased a leather Domke bag which is very durable but the Hakuba bag is cheaper, more rommmy and longer handling strap. Best soft bag I have ever had for my tripods, a Must Buy.

                                            Bag is light in weight and large enough for my Manfrotto tripod with head attached plus at least two strobe stands.

                                              Needed to transport my Tripod and Monopod. A little bulky but a good value. One quarter the price of a Gitzo.

                                              Case is well constructed, well padded. Should provide excellent protection for tripod and head. I have a Manfrotto 055XPROB with spiked feet attachment and 128RC head and they fit in case with room to spare.

                                                  I pack my tripod and 3 Manfrotto stackable lightstands in that bag. Holds up pretty good. The only complaint is that is lacks style but overall it's a good, strong bag that should last.
