A cheap travel gear setup (video)
Hey guys, I had this posted in travel...but guess I should put it up here too. This was a cheap gear setup I took with me to Alaska for 2 and a half weeks. I had the backpack as a carry on and the tripod as the "personal item". No issues with TSA, and the backpack held up well. The tripod held up well but the bag it came with did not (shown in the video). Hope this helps, the backpack was a much cheaper option then the Lowepro setup...and you just can't get a carbon fiber tripod from Manfrotto or any other big name company for the price of the Rocketfish one. Oh, and if anyone wonders...the backpack is still like new, after miles of rough hiking with on/off rain and long flights to/from Florida. I expected poor performance, but this seems like an exception to "you get what you pay for".
