Pricey, inaccurate dimensions, just the right size!!
on February 12, 2012
I have a problem with how either amazon or gitzo is describing all of the gitzo bags. The GC1100 was listed with the wrong dimensions, listed as 30 inches long when it's actually 25 inches long. The GC2100 will not fit this series 2 tripod as described, it just isn't wide enough. The off center column of the explorer series tripod creates a wider then normal requirement on tripod bag dimensions.
The GC3100 is also listed incorrectly.
THIS BAG IS NOT 38.2 INCHES LONG
THIS BAG IS 32 INCHES LONG
I bought this bag after returning the GC1100 and GC2100 thinking I would have extra room which I wasn't looking forward to because I wanted a snug fit. I was surprised when the bag was a gain the wrong size but the perfect size for the weird shape of the Gitzo GT2531EX Series 2 tripod with a Gitzo GH2750QR Series 2 Magnesium Quick Release Off Center Ball Head. If you own this tripod you'll notice that the off center column creates a weird shape that requires a bigger/wider bag, this bag is the one. One end of the bag is padded, I assumed it's for the tripod head for better protection. I like the thick material, heavy duty zippers and build quality. Feels very sturdy, padding is sufficient in case of accidental dropping and there is an under the zipper flap that acts like the waterproofing mechanism, more like water resistance.
I hope this helps someone looking at this bag.
