The 35.4" Manfrotto Padded Tripod Bag is a ballistic nylon bag that fits tripod and head combos up to 33.4" long. Thermoform padding holds the tripod in place and protects it, especially the head, during transport. It also serves a double purpose by protecting the tripod's hard edges when carried. The zipper extends down the length of the bag, but it also fully opens the top end of the bag. The end opening allows for faster "quiver" style extraction and insertion of the tripod. The inner pocket holds accessories (such as video head pan bars). The bag is tapered to follow the shape of the tripod and head.
The tripod legs fit comfortably in the narrower end, and extra space is allowed for the larger volume of the head at the wider end. This also means it's easier to put the tripod and head in the bag, even if the head levers and knobs are fitted and jut out slightly. The bag includes a shoulder strap and an end carry handle. There is also a carry handle on the side.
