Re: RRS Tripod Case alternatives

Appreciate all the input.

I noticed indeed that many photographers seem to just attach their tripods to their backpacks without any casing. Maybe I just have this fixed idea in my head that I'd obviously need some cover - in fact the hiding part is less of a priority than the protection part. Never had such a high quality tripod, not sure how many scars would become visible over time without casing - or if the material is actually so good that it would barely make a difference.

The bar tape solution is definitely worth looking into, if I can find a matching tape color. Still tending more towards trying with a cheap, light case first as in my current tripod it is really just a matter of 3 seconds to take it out and put it in again, thus not adding any real complexity.

Yodobashi is somewhat close, I will look into the Hakuba brand on my next visit, thanks!
