Great price, light weight, excellent access
on June 1, 2013
Branded as Vivitar, I wanted this to hold my Induro Tripods 472-075 LFB75S 75mm DR Hi-Hat TableTop Tripod Set (Black) with my Manfrotto 504HD Video Head (Black) fluid head. Unfortunately, while the case is long enough, it's not quite big enough at the head end to be able to close the zipper around the head.
However, it JUST closes over the same setup but with a Manfrotto 502 Video Head MVH502AH. Though the 502 is a flat-based head, the Induro legs come with a half ball adapter. After attaching the half ball to the head, the whole thing closes. Snugly, but it closes. See attached pictures.
I really like the access this bag affords. The single zipper goes around the "flip top" lid and then down the length of the case. It can be as open as you want, or you can just open the "flip top" and pull the tripod out the end.
There's a generous side pocket that measures 3-3/4" x 8-3/4" by about 1" wide.
You can carry the bag three ways:
1. By the carry hand straps
2. By the end loop
3. By the shoulder strap
It's nicely padded.
Maximum interior length is about 26". It's hard to calculate because the head end tapers back.
It could hold three or four compact light stands if they are under 25" long.
Overall a fantastic case for an amazingly low price.
