Excellent article!

Thank you.

Do you carry a tripod, and if so, how do you attach it to the pack?

Many in our group do, and they fasten it using any of the 5 options described in my OP. A couple use a different Deuter A pack that has a long bellows pocket on one side that will take the whole tripod in, but only in cold temps (this is not a TMP pack.)

As to me, I've learned from some pros the many alternatives to using a tripod so I no longer bother, except in the rare occasions when I shoot with very heavy lenses. And even then, I tend to favor my monopod.
