    Default Feisol Tripod Bag

    Thinking of getting a good tripod bag that can be hand/shoulder carried and padded with foams for additional tripod protection and more comfort for the shoulder.

    Saw this tripod bag at Feisol website

    Feisol Tripod Bag model no. TBL80
    L80cm W14cm H14cm

    the gitzo or manfrotto bags are not bad too. I got the free benro one from Jack006 along with my purchase. that bag is good, damn well padded hence the extra weight, using the strap to use on other smaller bags as it comes with metal hooks

    then that is a useless accessory liao. especially when using it in SG. supposed to be used as a protection for the hands when opening the tripod in cold weather conditions, in SG only more dead weight.

    might as well gaffer, it will only protect that portion of the tripod, I worry more about the 2nd and 3rd sections more.

    KT, you're probably doing this already, but I'd like to suggest that you bring your tripod (with head) along when you check out the bags ... I once bought a tripod bag "blind", and it was too big and the tripod just rattles around inside. You'd want something relatively snug.

    Right now my "main" tripod is a Benro CF with a Kangrinpoche head, and it fits very nicely, very compact package.

    You're welcome ! What tripod/head are you planning to stick into the proposed bag, if you don't mind me asking ?

    BTW, for my Benro/Kangrinpoche setup, I need to twist the QR clamp down into the vertical "groove" of the ballhead for it all to fit into the Benro bag (that came with the tripod), the fit is really, really snug

    Sorry, ericp, I miss out the post. Must have overlook.

    I am using Feisol 3401 and Kangrinpoche NB-1, should be around 60 cm in height.

    Get the Gitzo one, but you'll need to change the strap as it's not very comfortable, but I don't mind using the default one.
