Hardshell/softshell tripod bags?

Not open for further replies.
Got an interesting question for the forum.

I'm looking for a tripod bag but a special tripod bag. I work offshore, and often we are limited in weight in what we can bring (we get flown by chopper so weight is a big restriction).

At the moment I take a backpack with me (carry on) that contains notebook, ipod etc. I also take my Manfrotto PRO55B tripod in a MBAG80P which holds it perfectly. The problem is that I often need to fit rolled shirts, power packs and toiletries alongside the tripod legs, and unfortunately the MBAG80P fills like a sausage. Something just a little wider would be perfect.

So, any good suggestions for me?


Well, that is one option, but then I'm left with a secondary flimsier tripod and two backpacks :)

I might head down to Cathay and see what the Tamrac bags are like.

Thanks for the thought, though.

smaller than your 055B and sturdy enough for your equipment
short enough (closed) to fit in your backpack
and get a bigger backpack to fit everything in
