A quality item just like their tripods A JOY TO USE.,
This review is from: Manfrotto MBAG 80P Padded Tripod Bag (Camera)
Ive yet to see a poorly designed or manufactured Manfrotto product.
This Italian company who actually manufacture their own products in Italy and not source them from China or similar country show a keen eye for quality and detail.
Nobody can claim their tripods and accessories are cheap far from it but you know when you buy one of their products it is built to high standards.
It would be a shame to buy one of their tripods and not spend the extra cash on one of their carrier bags.
Made out of extreamy lite and hardwearing nylon with their keen eye on detail allowing a very snug fit depending on the length of your tripod 70cm to 80cm in their case.This bag on arrival felt very lite in its packaging but certainly looks well made with the company logo clearly stitched in several places for all to see.
My 80cm 144 Bird Tripod with head already attached fits like a well worn pair of slippers like a glove with no movement atall.
A full length zip and heavily padded head cover should provide many years of service and unlike their tripods its a treat to carry around with the provided carrying strap.
Carrying a very heavy 144 tripod around without this bag is a real nuisance,weight and awkward edges being the main reason.
With that tripod installed in this superb green bag and extra padding that this bag provides carrying your heavy tripod becomes almost pleasurable.
Im sure that the padding provided in this slightly more expensive bag really makes a difference in use.The tripod is securely strapped inside the bag allowing no movement whatsoever,how the unlined bag would behave im not so sure but the padding really makes a difference.
With the full length adjustable shoulder strap provided the sudden cumbersome tripod becomes a joy to carry around.As the shoulder strap is extreamly comfortable with no rough edges the sudden weight of your tripod vertually disappears.
It does go to show that a well designed and manufactured product makes its intended use that more enjoyable.
Now that i have purchased this excellent bag i plan to make more use of my tripod as before carrying this heavy item around was very off puting.
