I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the price for this item, and the reviews looked good so I took a chance. I'm very glad I did. It holds my Manfrotto 055CXPRO3 sticks and 322RC2 head easily, with the head either turned 90 degrees from the sticks or angled to add to their length. Nicely padded (I wouldn't toss them on a plane, but I wouldn't do that anyway but fine for everyday use.) It has plenty of room to add a monopod or a light or reflector stand if you need to.
