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.

I purchased this case to carry my Manfrotto 755/502 tripod/head combo. It fits the tripod very nicely with enough room to spare to comfortably carry a boom pole and, if I squeeze, a 24" camera slider (in its own padded case).

I've checked it on 2 flights and there are already at least 6 small rips that have appeared in the nylon exterior, which is disappointing. However, my tripod has arrived intact in all destinations so the bag is doing its job, for now.

If the primary goal is to keep your tripod from getting banged around inside a car or van it's a good buy. If you plan on using it for air travel, it will work but expect a shorter usable life for the bag.

Solid Tripod Case

Comments about Hakuba PSTC 200 Tripod Case:

Solid bag that is big enough to hold the tripod with attached video head. The bag is perhaps a little bigger than I'd have hoped, but it works.

      Comments about Hakuba PSTC 200 Tripod Case:

      I purposefully wanted to get a slightly larger bag for our 27" tripod. This bag works perfectly-- it's large enough to store our main Manfrotto tripod, plus a backup/smaller light tripod in its own bag. Or, if I wanted to, I could swap that smaller tripod for the pocket slider, again in its own bag. Very spiffy, I appreciate the design and sturdiness so far!

          Looks good so far but I'll know more after a couple of years of abuse. Seems to be heavy duty and well built.

          multiple usage

          from Hong Kong

          Comments about Hakuba PSTC 200 Tripod Case:

          the bag is large enough to carry not only the tripod, but also my light stand, umbrella for flash use and other photography accessory. However, the durability can be improve, as some damages can be found for using just two days for which I carried it normally.

          Comments about Hakuba PSTC 200 Tripod Case:

          This product is well made and padded for the price range. Even though the dimensions are a little odd, almost triangular, it rests well against the back when using the shoulder strap to carry. I have this as a replacement bag for my carbon fiber tripod and I think this will last. I would not recommend using this for bad weather though, although the materials appear to be rugged I doubt they would keep anything dry in a good rain.

          Comments about Hakuba PSTC 200 Tripod Case:

          I own a larger RRS tripod & ball head. I originally ordered the RRS bag years ago, but returned it because it was so much larger than the tripod. This still has plenty of space where the ball head goes, more than I was looking for. The bag seems to be well constructed, the extra pockets are nice. And it's a fraction of what the RRS bag was.

                Comments about Hakuba PSTC 200 Tripod Case:

                This tripod bag is a good piece of equipment. The padding helps substantially to protect your tripods, which we all know are not cheap. I would recommend this to any and everybody.

                        Great padding, I wish it was just slightly wider so it would accommodate both my tripod and a monopod.

                            Extremely well made tripod case, a little large (in diameter) for the Vanguard tripod I'm using it for, but that is no problem. I particularly like the exterior and interior pouches, would like even more of them, but these help a great deal. Full length zipper works very well, much better than "bag" type. Yes I would recommend to a friend. Usual excellent service from B&H.

                                        Very good value for the cost. I've got room for a large aluminum tripod and spotting scope. The outside pocket is a plus for smaller items. Highly recommend.

                                          Es excelente para transportar equipo, no solo tripies, la usaba para guardar todo mi kit de iluminación strobist.
