    I've ever did some trekking with my tripod setup locally and no difference. But how many here will actually climb hills and mountains with their gear?

    I bought a couple of the china made ones. The padding is quite good and thick. In SG they cost around $30 each. PS, I hate to have brand name big big on the bag. Just encourage people to steal your stuff, especially when you are travelling in some not so safe regions.

    haha, i didnt realise the brand name would be a negative thing, but u have a good point! are think tank bags good? the bazooka range.. although firstly i'd like to get a strap.. wonder who has manfrotto bags and straps? i checked with John 3:16 (got my tripod from them) but they dont have bags or straps by manfrotto.. just to check the price
