Benro A-198 EX Tripod
“Lastly the carrying case which is not even mentioned on Amazon, is a very nice case. Its well padded, has zipped compartment inside w/some tools. Color is black w/white trimmed piped seam. Has nice wide carrying strap w/sliding shoulder pad as well as padded carrying handle. Another nice touch is all the hardware on the case-rings, buckle, quick disconnect etc are metal not plastic. Zipper is plastic, but the 2 zipper pulls are metal. All in all it is a really nice tripod for the money. Weight is good & size-wise folded up, it fits in a carryon piece of luggage, many do not. Looks to be well made & very well thought out…” – By PB
