48" Length

Dual-Zippered Opening
The dual-zippered opening helps provide quick access to the contents, while the large sliders are easy to grab and offer smooth action.
Equipment Straps
Interior straps for securing equipment.
Carrying Options
Sturdy dual carry handles are integrated into the bag to support the heaviest loads, and they have a touch-fastener wrap that puts comfort in your hands. A removable shoulder sling affords a convenient option in case your hands are full with other equipment.
Durable Outside, Soft Inside
The bag's exterior is made from lightweight and durable weather-resistant nylon fabric. Inside the bag, your gear is surrounded by a soft nylon fabric lining that won't scratch the finish of your equipment.
Accessory Storage
An external 13-inch accessory pocket is perfect for storing extra quick release plates, remotes, or cables. This pocket comes with a removable divider so you can organize your additional tools. And inside is a touch-fastener compartment for other lighting accessories you need for your shoot.
Lightweight and Thin
The lightweight and thin profile is designed to carry your bulky tripods with ease. You can also use the bag for transporting items that you need to hand-carry to your shoot, such as umbrellas, collapsible softboxes, or boompoles.
Identification Window
This bag has an identification window on the side for your contact information, or for writing down what equipment is inside when used alongside other Ruggard bags.
Rubber Feet
Raised rubber feet on the bottom help in elevating the bag and minimizing any contact with dirt or moisture, as well as preventing undue wear and tear on the bottom of the bag.

Ruggard BD-3048 Reviews

Ideal for Astrophotography Tripod

By Robert
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-07-22

Telescope tracking mounts have large, heavy tripods to remain rock solid when in use. Carrying these heavy tripods is difficult, and specialized cases are overpriced. This case fits my Startracker EQM-35 tripod perfectly with room for a stabilization plate and the tracker's counterweight.

Game changer!

By Joshua

For the price point and quality this is definitely a game changer. This bag is what I used to travel with a large backdrop set up with tripod and umbrellas. The bag has a lot of room plus some to store all my equipment. I would not use this to travel on a plane ride, the padding is good but I don't think I would trust handlers with his bag but definitely a car trip and anywhere else. Most bags that I have come across it is price point or poorly constructed and you can tell that they will break pretty soon but for some reason this is a very sturdy bag.

Manfrotto Companion

I have a couple large Manfrotto pro tripods that required a 48" long bag, but I didn't want to spend big bucks. I had reservations about this bag due to its low cost. I've been quite surprised at the quality of this bag. It's a perfect fit for my tripod with its 509HD head.

This soft tripod case is a great option to carry not just your tripod, but also for light-weight lighting stands. I mainly use this case for the light stands and I can fit at least 3 lighting stands in this case. It's a perfect way to transport support gear!

Good value for astronomy telescope tripod

By Russell
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-07

This is a good value for a padded case with a large exterior pocket and a small interior sleeve pocket. With one end a bit higher than the other, I'm able to put my circular eyepiece tray between the tripod legs on the higher end of the bag. It's a good fit for my wooden Oberwerk tripod with eyepiece tray.

Perfect..

I was looking for a bag for my extremely long light stands and after buying some other bags that didn't work, I found this one with very reasonable price. I was skeptical at first but this is a great bag to fit almost everything including tripods and a few light stands to carry at the spot. Highly recommended.

How thick is the padding? Is it on all six sides?
Asked by: Kelly
i would say the padding is about half an inch thick, but not present on the panel with the zip (which includes the ends). it will wear out on the ends eventually, i bought this one to replace a similar stand bag. it's decent protection, good for stands and even a tripod going in the back of your vehicle. but it isn't a tripod travel case, which should be rigid if it's going to be put in someone else's hands.

Suitable for a Kessler K-Pod?
Asked by: Liam
HI Liam: I looked-up this piece of equipment spec's to get to provide you with a more meaningful answer. As long as you get the correct length case, poss. the 42 long version, this should work-out just fine. Using the Shoulder strap slung over my head, the Manfrotto Tripod I purchased is as light as a feather. If it does not work for you, B&H is great about returning an item. Give it a shot!!
