Re: Stap or Sling as Alternative to Tripod Bag?

Yeah, Craig, the part about a bulky bag out in a field or forest discourages me from getting it. What I need is protection around the house from getting dropped or banged while in storage. A flimsy canvas thing would serve the purpose at home. I'd never take it outdoors.

On the rare times I'd travel by plane, I retired from FedEx and get free shipping for life. So their freebie triangular tube would protect it on travel. When I go any distance,  I always FedEx my luggage to the hotel ahead of my departure.

For local shooting out of doors, I'l investigate a sling. Do you know any particular brands, or should I just head to a surplus store and pick up some tent strapping?
