    I'm looking to get a tripod case for my Manfrotto 294 4-section and 3-way head. However it seems manfrotto's smallest padded case is 80cm, while the tripod and head are about 63cm together. Is this difference okay? It seems that gives it a lot of room to move around, which I don't think is really a good thing.

    That's the problem with being the Worlds tallest midget Jeff :D, I have it too I'm 5' 9" but have a long body and short legs so sitting down I'm about the same height as a man of average proportions who's 6' 2" tall :smile:
