This is a great all purpose bag, not just for tripods although that was the reason I purchased it. I am considering buying another for my light stands. This is not what I consider a heavily padded bag so using it to check a tripod onto a airplane is risky, but it certainly has enough padding (touch more than just the canvas alone) to protect it while being carried in the trunk of my car or from site to site. It appears well made. Note however, that the zipper does not extend over any end and stops an inch or so shy of each end. My tripod measures 33 inches long. The zippered opening makes it tight getting in and out of the 35 inch bag. Once inside, plenty of room.

Although this bag is made with nice, thick canvas material, it has a poorly constructed zipper that seems cheap and probably not able to withstand much zipping open and closed under normal wear and tear field conditions. It also does not fully fit the Manfrotto tripod with 501 or 503HDV head without having to remove the head's pan handle so the bag will zip fully shut. A couple of inches on the top end of the bag would have been nice, and more solid zipper construction and this bag would have made a few more stars.

Inexpensive case that does the job.

Comments about Vidpro TC35 Tripod Case:

Don't expect much from this bag, but for the price, it does what it was made for and fits my light-stand with flash-head attached just fine. But again, my stand folds into a smaller size, so check the bag for your own individual needs.

The materials are so cheap (zipper and straps) that I wouldn't trust my gear in it, other than sitting on a shelf.

      Picked this bag/case up to transport my lighting gear. I can fit 2 light stands and 1 backdrop stand. So far, this bag has been very helpful transporting my stands. Solid and durable construction.

        Comments about Vidpro TC35 Tripod Case:

        This case houses my video camera tripod which I use regularly. It has two carry straps which can be wrapped together with the provided sewn in Velcro. Additionally this case has an adjustable shoulder strap for the times I need more than two hands. The zipper pocket is convenient for storing my paperwork for the job. The full length center zipper is perfectly located on the top or inside, making it easy to remove the tripod as well as store it. High quality thick material. Professional looking in all venues. Have not found anything I don't like about it. Fits my tripod perfectly.

              I have to ares with another negative review concerning the zippers on these cases. These bags feel thin and lack padding, but would have worked for our needs, but the zipper separated mid-zipper under minimal road wear (within 30 days of field use). Low priced, decent fabric, ok. Zipper that separates like Humpy Dumpty's head...meaning useless case...not so good. I cannot recommend this one. Too bad!

                    Comments about Vidpro TC35 Tripod Case:

                    Straightforward tripod bag that gets the job done. It has two shorter nylon straps for use as handles and one longer strap for slinging the bag over your shoulder. It includes one zippered pouch on the outside.The bag isn't quite as padded as the description would have you believe, so if you are looking for something that will protect your tripod from drops and spills this might not be the bag for you. It's lightly padded, just not the stiff/thick sort of padding that causes the bag to retain it's shape.I bought mine cheaply as part of a combo deal and didn't really need the extra protection, just something that would make carrying the tripod from one place to another easier. I actually prefer the light padding as that means that I can easily just fold the bag up and tuck it away somewhere when I'm not using it.I've had it for a few months and it is holding up just fine. Since I bought it for a reduced price I was worried that it might not be durable, but so far it has proven me wrong, plus it comes with a lifetime warranty.I am pleased with the bag overall and would recommend it to others, just keep in mind that it is probably not for those who require serious protection from damage.

                      While I'm using this to carry amateur radio antennas, not a tripod, it is well made, sturdy and very functional. Also the best price I've found. Was received quickly with standard shipping. Always a pleasure dealing with BH.

                          This bag has seen very light use for less than a year. I got it mostly to keep from getting scratches on my tripod when it was riding around in the back of my car.

                          It's a nice bag, but even without much use the zipper has completely failed. In reading other reivews, I see that this is a common problem.

                          It's a shame they didn't put a better quality zipper on this bag since I like it otherwise, but it's a critical issue since the bag is of no use if it can't be closed. I got a few months of good service out of it, so I'll give it 2 stars, but I certainly would not buy it again nor would I recommend it to anyone.

                              Decent case.. Wish it was a lil more padded but hey it was under $ so I can't complain really hahaIt does the job.. eventually I will upgrade to a better case though it will certainly do for now. Just don't throw your tripod around in this case. while carrying it it can handle some light dings as you walk with it though I wouldn't trust it beyond that.I needed something to fit my tripod in that would make transportation easy and give atleast some protection from dents and scratches during transport. This fits that need for now.

                                  Great bag for basically nothing.

                                  Not a lot of padding, but I'm generally very careful with my equipment regardless, so it's more than enough for me.

                                  Lightweight and durable.

                                    You absoulutely can't expect much for [$], but this exceeded my expectations. Nice case just to protect my Manfrotto tripod, with room to spare. Good for putting the equipment in the trunk. It's probably not waterproof, but will shield the tripod from dampness.

                                        The bags that come with the VT4000 are useless. You absolutely need a bag to replace them. This is a good cheap option for a super cheap tripod. It's probably won't last long with regular use though...
