    Manfrotto AW 3281BLK reviews

    3281B (AW-3281B) 42" Padded Tripod Bag (Black) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid bag to carry my Manfrotto tripod... This tripod bag is solid, slightly padded, and just what I needed to carry my Manfrotto tripod. The only reason why I gave it 4 stars is because the bag is significantly longer than the tripod. I was afraid the smaller 35 tripod bag would be too tight for the tripod and ball head, so I purchased this one. The excess length would be cumbersome if it weren't for the second set of hand held straps used to carry the tripod. The shorter length of these straps makes the excessive bag length manageable -- if you use the over-the-shoulder carrying strap, then you may find the excessive length cumbersome again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Metes the Need I bought the Manfrotto 3281B Padded Tripod Bag to protect my Manfrotto 3046 tripod with a Manfrotto 501HDV head. It is a nice bag; however, the tripod with the head is a tight fit. The length is fine, but the narrow width needs at least an additional 1/2 to 1 inch for a good fit. It is advertised to fit the 3046 tripod, but it seems Manfrotto would have allowed for their head mounted on the tripod.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from didn't even bother to put logo on it I have been always pleased with Manfrotto products, until I saw this one. The product is so cheaply made that the zipper broke in the first use. The padding is very thin, almost non existent, it is definitely NOT going to protect your equipment. The bag doesn't even have a logo on it and is just like an unbranded cheap product. I don't think it is even worth this price

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Bag for Lightstands I purchased this bag to carry 8-foot lightstands, umbrella swivels, and 45 umbrellas on location. It works great for this application, but I think the bag is too long, and has pretty skimpy padding for a quality tripod bag. Try the Tamrac 332 Padded Tripod case if your looking to protect a tripod. I have found it to be one of the best.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Provides the basics We got this bag as a way to provide basic protection to an additional tripod we had, and it does the job. The bag is light-weight and not padded, but it was relatively inexpensive. My biggest concern is with the zipper, which is looks flimsy for the weight of the tripod inside. But so far it is working as advertised.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Manfrotto Construction Got this bag to carry my 1 meter dolly slider. It is the typical quality construction I have come to expece from Manfrotto. Tough, rugged bag. I am sure I will have it for a long time. Good handles along with a shoulder strap and an outside zippered pocket for those small accessories.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent Bag I use this to carry my manfrotto tripod.I like that it has an exterior pocket for storing tripod plates, screws etc.... CONS: The padding isnt very good. The diameter of the bag isn't very wide. I have the 515 legs and the feet on the legs make it hard to zip up the bag.
    Date published: 2008-11-03
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nothing Special but nothing wrong It seems pretty good quality yet I suspect it won't last more than a few years. I do wish there was a little more padding. When checking my tripod as baggage I stuff some clothes in with the tripod just to make me feel more secure. For the price this is a good value.
