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.

          I'm really impressed with the quality of this bag! Also! It fits my light stand with plenty of extra room. I'll be buying this same bag when I need a second one.

              This case fits my Manfrotto 055XB Aluminum Tripod as well as the Manfrotto 502HD Pro Video Head I attach to it. Not too snug like some cases. Roomy enough to handle the entire system, yet not too bulky.

                I use it for 755XB MDeVe Aluminum Video Tripod by Manfrotto with a large head and it all fits nicely.

                Built quality is very good as well. Love it.

                        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 use it to hold my gitzo 56.. Giant,, the one that goes to 9 feet. The bag feels sturdy and comfortable to carry with the shoulder strap,, enough room to HS other items also such as light stands

                          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.

                                  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.

                                    Comments about Hakuba PSTC 200 Tripod Case:

                                    This is exactly what I needed. I was using a picnic chair bag to hold my tripod and mount which was awkward to carry, banged into things and made me look silly sometimes.

                                    When the bag came, I was happy with the stitching and zippers. They are sturdy and should stand the test of time. There is a large compartment pocket on the outside and a small pocket on the inside of the bag to store items if needed.

                                    I am very happy with the purchase..

                                    Holds my new heavy duty tripod with enough room to spare, but doesn't add much to the overall weight
                                    strap is comfortable and functional

                                    This is a replacement for one I've had for about 6 years that had the zipper rip out -- a very strong helper tried to hard to put one too many tripods in it. It's actually very sturdy -- I couldn't believe the guy managed to tear it. I was very pleased with it, and this one is basically the same. It holds up to three (definitely not four) tripods, so it is a little oversized for a single tripod. The padding protects the tripod (and other gear jammed into a trunk around it) very well, but it does mean the bag doesn't fold up (which I actually prefer). It's easy to carry with either the shoulder straps or the handles. I use the outside pouch to carry extra adapter plates.

                                          I cannot believe the quality of this bag for its price. I sent back an $ Manfrotto bag that was the wrong fit and this is on par with it. Highly recommend. I don't need cool labels on my bags to look 'pro'. Very happy with this bag.

                                            This is a good quality item for the price. I am curious to see how it holds up over time, but it looks good and has sturdy construction. I use it to carry a tripod and two small light stands and there is plenty of room to stuff some other things in there.

                                            Nice case, well made. I don't really need it, but it came free with the kit. Good bonus.
