Talented Reader Spot Light. Tripod Strap.
I'd never really carried a tripod with a strap before but I thought I'd give it a try. I like it a lot. It's snug on my shoulder and frees up my right hand, which used to bear the burden of the tripod as I tromped along to a job site. But most of all, I like the aesthetics. The leather is thick and gives the impression that it'll supply years of service. I carry it so the tripod hangs horizontally.
In the interests of total disclosure I must say that Gordy sent me the strap as a gift. He did not ask me to write this but I wanted to after having used the strap for a week. It's a niche product that feels both retro and useful. I'm putting the link to Gordy's strap site in case you want a non-traditional (or should I say previously traditional?) camera or tripod strap.
Gordy is smart. He hooked me by sending the first one for free. Now I've been back to the site several times and I'm in the process of deciding which straps I need for a few new cameras. I just can't stand the promotional straps that come in the boxes with the new cameras.......
