Tripod Sling users?

  1. K so I finally got my Gitzo. The thing is like fine jewelry. I'd like to know if anyone has used tripod slings, specifically Gitzo but others ok. How do they feel on you, etc.

    Unless I drive into the city (Chicago) I won't even be able to try them out so would have to buy sight unseen as I did the Gitzo. I know I can strap it to my backpack but unless I am out hiking and need both hands free I usually just take a small shoulder bag.

    Not sure this answers your question, but.....I have used the Thinktank bazooka for my Gitzo. However, in the field I found that for me this was too much protect and too much bulk, so I now just use an optech strap on it. This works fine for me.

  3. Thanks,

    I'll check Optech cause I use and am happy with the camera straps.
     
  4. +1 for the op/tech tripod strap.

    Wish Upstrap would make a tripod strap!
