    I think the better solution will be this way...

    Traveling use tripod while taking the plane (Hand carry in)
    After reaching the hotel, put the tripod aside and use the strap to carry around...

    If Just going near by or hiking just carry with a strap....
    tripod stay at home....

    Tripod no in use keep in the tripod bag.....for storage...

    I am thinking to purchase the Lowepro Fastpack 250. However, this bag doesn't come with anything to hook on tripod. So, for those guys that using a bag like this, cant hook your tripod on, how do you carry your tripod?

    I'm more into hobby photography, not those hardcore type, and I dont go out take photo often.
    Tripod bag, cos I carry 2 tripods

    Light one, strap it on the camera bag. Can get the strap from army shop at the North Bridge Road market.

    Heavy one, use tripod strap.

    ok.. noted.. thanks btw! should be getting one soon. too irritated by hand-carrying tripod.. hands nt free to shoot when walking. plus last week, a passer-by actually accidentally banged into my tripod. luckily not so hard.

    Heh yeah that'd be my nightmare too; and if my tripod will come crashing down with its mounted camera and lens in that event.

    I carry my tripod in a similar way to how bro Harper does it.
    Since my tripod is quite compact (SLIK Sprint PRO), I attach a small carabina clip to the head of the tripod and clip it to my belt whenever i go for shoots. May not be the best idea but works for me
