Transport a Tripod by Adding a Strap to the Bottom of a Camera Backpack

Sick of carrying your tripod separately from your camera backpack? If you have certain types of backpacks, you can add your own strap loop system to the bottom to serve as a makeshift tripod carrying feature.

A photography enthusiast named JJ tells us that this is what he recently discovered with his Kata camera bag. Although it’s designed to carry a travel tripod, it requires an optional adapter that JJ didn’t want to buy.

Instead, he discovered that he could put an ordinary laptop strap could be put through the back panel that’s designed to store the extra straps on the back. This results in two loops hanging out both sides of the bag — loops that you can stick your tripod through horizontally.

Once your tripod is secured, simply tighten up the loops to fasten it in place. If your loops start to slip, you can stitch them in place to fix the strap’s length:

“It’s not totally perfect for all situations”, JJ tells us. “Carrying a tripod horizontally wouldn’t work well in a dense crowd, but for my purposes it worked great for many kilometers of walking.” He says that his method helps him keep the weight he’s carrying low, keeping it around his hips rather than on his shoulders.
