A step up in size and storage space from most stand bags, the Hoofer balances comfort and accessibility for effortless carrying and maneuverability. The 5-way reinforced top is larger, and approximately 40% thicker. Proper weight allocation makes the Hoofer balance evenly on the shoulders. Storage is provided by eight pockets, including a water-resistant, velour-lined valuables pocket. The Hoofer has new dual sliding, adjustable straps that are easier to take on and off, and allow the bag to be carried backpack-style. It also has a new leg retention strap that keeps the legs tight to the bag when retracted.
