Re: Stap or Sling as Alternative to Tripod Bag?

I made a tripod bag from the leg of an old pair of jeans. Sew one end closed. On the other, sew a "hem" wrapped around a length of rope. Sew a ring (like a big keyring) on either end and attach a camera strap for carrying. (I like the Optech ones). You could add a thin roll of foam inside if you need padding. Tie the rope to keep the tripod snug when carrying.

It's cheap, durable, folds up very small and best of all, costs next to nothing. Use the savings to buy quick-release plate or something else cool.:-D
