Thanks in advance,

Cases & Covers AKA Pacific Design
I bought a soft case for my CPC 1100 from them, as well as a padded tripod bag made especially for the weirdly shaped CPC tripod. Construction was excellent.

I am especially intriuged by the American Musical case as Stan gives it a good review and the price is great. I did not see any dimensions listed for it. Do you have any dimensions and will it fit the rather smallish CGEM tripod ?

It's about 48"x 10"x 8". I have my CGEM tripod and my SE tripod in one bag and my CG-5 tripod and my SV T-6 tripod in the other. The bag is long enough that I can leave the legs on the tripods extended to the hight I like without having to re-adjust the legs every time.

I ended up getting this Davis & Sanford bag instead. It fits my CGEM tripod very well and it has some internal padded velcro straps that can go over and between the legs so that they don't bang against each other.

That looks like a very nice bag! Havimg seen both bags how would you compare the quality of the two? I really don't mind the extra length of the On Stage bag. The extra length allows me to leave the tripod legs extended at my preferred set up height, so I don't have to reset them every time. Down side is they take up a little more room, but at the moment I have the extra space. I use a bungie cord on my tripod legs to keep them from banging around. A small piece of foam packing at the end of the legs helps with scuffs and noise. Thanks for posting your find.

I really enjoy the longer bag as I can leave the extension/riser attached to the tripod. That saves a lot of assembly time everytime I set up.
I actually have the legs slightly extended as well inside the bag. It just depends on which OTA I am using, the 140 needs extra length if I'm doing visual.
A great recommendation from Stan that I have been very pleased with, and shared the info with others as well.
