These covers are not exactly what I expected ... for reasons that aren't clear I expected the covers to be high density foam that would adhere to the legset. Instead, they are foam core with a separate cloth cover that velcros over the foam and is attached to the foam by an elastic band. On the inside of the foam core there is a covered adhesive strip that you can peel to make the foam stay firm in place. Unfortunately the cloth cover leaves the foam core exposed at the ends so it has a somewhat less than professional look which I found disappointing. So, while it will be nice to have the padding when carrying the tripod fully loaded with leveling head and Wimberley head and camera and lens, I think the covers could have been tailored just a little better. A pretty good product none-the-less at a reasonable price.

The Leg Coat is looser than what I expected. It easily slides up and down the leg sometimes interfering with access to tripod functions. The neoprene socks tend to creep off the pads as well. I expected a better product for the money spent.

    Fit well and provide comfort while carrying a heavy setup. Would prefer that top and bottom of protector would have a snugger fit (elastic) to curl around the foam.

          These are decent leg protectors which fit well on my Gitzo 3542XLS. I got a digital camo pattern for snicks and it given my tripod an interesting look. The covers are a nice stretchy neoprene material, velcro all along the opening. The padding is simply pipe insulation, the closed cell dense stuff with a slit you find at Home Depot. Its way to bulky in use I think. It would be tough to substitute anything else given the neoprene is sized for the bulk. For what they charge for this, I'd seriously suggest looking for something else or just pick up the material and do it yourself.

                  I own a set of these for my tripod and bought these as a gift for a budy. These covers are very good for warmth and add protection.
                  Kind of expensive when you consider what it probably costs to make them but they do what they are supossed to do.

                  Good thick padding. Removable and cleanable. 2 inches too short for Gitzo XLS tripod. I would suggest a fitted kit that will cover all the Carbon Fiber portion of the legs, if the tripod is expected to encounter heavy impacts. For normal use this will work fine.

                    These protect the tripod well, which is nice in this case because the tripod itself costs over 600$. The lens coat also makes it more comfortable to sling the tripod over the shoulder and cary that way. The one con is that they have an inch of extra room that causes them to slip up and down a bit.

                      Applied these to a Gitzo GT3530LS which is not listed in the fit list, but item fits fine. Interior foam padding is identical to the black foam insulation for copper piping sold at [...]. Foam has an adhesive strip to secure the foam to the tripod leg, but I did not use it since camo cover is held in place with Velcro along its entire length which securely holds the Legcoat to the tripod.

                        this is a pretty simple product. Basically foam tubes with fabric jackets that fit on the upper leg sections of your tripod for protection and padding for more comfortable carrying. They fit well, attach securely and look great. What more could you want? I'll be using this along with my tripod in the Alaska bush so it will go "through the wringer" so to speak. It looks to me like these "leggings" are up to the job.

                                To be honest, I didn't buy these to protect the tripod, but to protect my shoulder. Works great for carrying a tripod with an attached camera/lens combo. The padding is a relief from the weight.

                                I was a little surprised that these leg pads were so thick. It kind of messes up the beauty of my new Gitzo. However, I do appreciate the pad thickness after I have carried my tripod on my shoulders all day on a long hike.

                                These covers are not exactly what I expected ... for reasons that aren't clear I expected the covers to be high density foam that would adhere to the legset. Instead, they are foam core with a separate cloth cover that velcros over the foam and is attached to the foam by an elastic band. On the inside of the foam core there is a covered adhesive strip that you can peel to make the foam stay firm in place. Unfortunately the cloth cover leaves the foam core exposed at the ends so it has a somewhat less than professional look which I found disappointing. So, while it will be nice to have the padding when carrying the tripod fully loaded with leveling head and Wimberley head and camera and lens, I think the covers could have been tailored just a little better. A pretty good product none-the-less at a reasonable price.

                                  The LegCoat go on easily and fit great. The padding is not to thick to be cumbersome and does a great job when I rest it on my shoulder. Makes lugging around my 500 a breeze.

                                  The Leg Coat is looser than what I expected. It easily slides up and down the leg sometimes interfering with access to tripod functions. The neoprene socks tend to creep off the pads as well. I expected a better product for the money spent.
