attach tripod to camera backpack, if possible

If you have a backpack that has some loops on the back or side, you can get some nylon straps and just strap it firmly on the bag. I have attached two short plastic loops to the top edge of my bag (loops are actually those serrated plastic bag sealers, 2 end to end covered by duct tape with one serration and one slot hanging out). I stick 2 of the legs through the loops, and have a longer nylon strap that I thread through some Molle slots on the base of the bag and loop around the lower legs of the tripod. This is a very firm non-shifting attachment suitable for long-day pack-hiking. 5.5# 22" tripod plus 4" head.
