The TFO rod case/tube is hard sided case with a nylon lining ( no rods included, just the tube ). The outside is cordura with a stitched TFO logo. The cap zips to close and has a padded inside. The Large Triangle Multi Case is ideal for travelers and can hold 6 rods if carefully packed. ( Shown as the bottom case on top ). You can put 3 rods facing up and 3 facing down. All the cases should account for most fighting butts. These have great zippers and we had very few returns.
