I am about to pull the trigger on the RRS TFC-14 and although that means living on bread and water for the next few months, a few more $$$ have to be allocated for a tripod bag.

RRS have their own bags, but they are too bulky and heavy for my taste:

I also don't want the case branded and basically screaming "expensive RRS gear!":

Looking for something much simpler and lighter, like e.g. this one. Does anybody have any experience with 3rd party cases for the TFC-14?

I see that you are in Yokohama — if you are OK with buying in a store, look for Hakuba or other Japanese brands at one of the larger Yodobashi or BIC stores.  I am very pleased with the quality of a Hakuba case which I use for my large video tripod kit.  The Japanese Slik tripod brand at least used to have a range light- to medium-duty tripod cases.
