Thread: What do you usually use to carry your tripod around?

  1. #1

    Question What do you usually use to carry your tripod around?

    Any recommendation for a bag, strap or other thing (and where to get) that you usually use to carry your tripod around? Especially if you want to trekking or walking long distance without killing your shoulder/back. Tripod weight ard 2kg +

    Thanks !

    i usually use a Op/Tech tripod strap. very well padded with anti-slip grips. if i'm packing to travel, then i will use a discreet Slik tripod bag, very cheap only @ <$20 from CP.

    Same here, but think the strap is a little above $20 from what i recall, less they've revised again. Bought one in November 03.

    optech is cool..
    u can tighten it --> it's like a slingbag strap...
    just be careful when u go places with many little kids... one careless swing and that's it (for the kid).

    I use either a tripod strap or slot the tripod in to my trolley if it's going to be towed on smooth surfaces.

    2Kg for a tripod isn't heavy .. try one that weighs around 8.5kg (including head) sometime.
