    You will need to give them a call as the prices are not listed on their website but I remember buying the smallest Bazooka at around $80+.

    Cheaper than Gitzo bag or not, I have no idea as I never asked about it.

    This is my diy strap. just cable tie a small ring to the tripod and purchase a strap. when extending the tripod i just need to unclip the bottom strap. wanna get a manfortto bag but it cost $55, and the strap also cost about $30 plus. decided to diy since i'm not using a very expensive tripod and find it kind of troublesome to carry a bag along. My damage. $4 for strap at army market. Ring and cable tie can easily find at daiso or diy shops. if u need a shoulder pad can get one for $5.

    i bgt 2 dog collars from Daiso. they clip around the tripod and have a metal ring for attaching generic bag straps. no metal part is in contact with tripod. btw Daiso is really a good place if you want to be creative and diy

    get a tripod strap from Eastgear, it come with padding and very affordable.
    bag are not convenient for photo outing, unless you are traveling or going for assignment, have tons of gears to carry, tripod bag will be useful here.

    Wondering... For your fastening near the ball head, why are you not hooking on the provided metal hook on the tripod neck ? Your plastic hook cannot fit in ?

    a bit tight to fit in but the main reason for not hooking at the tripod is because my tripod hook is made of plastic and its seems will break easily

    When you attach the strap to one end of one leg of the tripod, as you carry it, will the legs tend to open up by themselves?

    mine still a bit tight, maybe not for now, after long usage i dont know, maybe can just use a big size rubber band to tie together. wondering for those who bought original strap where do u guys tie the bottom to? i dont see any hook at the leg area.

    I have a bag which I bought online and got it delivered to me whilst I was in the US. It is a fantastic bag; HAKUBA USA INC PSTC100 Tripod Case. It is solidly padded and allows my 190xprob with 486RC2 attached to fit nicely. There are handle bars plus carrying strap. There is even a side pocket which is padded

    http://www.amazon.com/HAKUBA-USA-PST...0700104&sr=8-1

    Cost me US$28.

    Had to buy it mainly for storing my tripod to prevent it from being used by my kids as a anti-tank weapon and damaging all my furniture at home. However, I do agree that for photography treks, that a strap would make better sense.
