Summary: I am traveling on assignment with less gear than I used to, and needed a tripod bag that held less than my customary big tripod and 5 stands. This is the perfect size for a small Gitzo1158 pod, a stand and umbrella, which is my default location kit now. It slings against the back for easy carrying. Because it's not padded (a feature benefit, actually), it folds up nicely in luggage and won't take up a lot of room. It's heavy canvas, so it will last a long time.
