so i've been trying to decide what backpack to get and don't so much mind about camera space as i figure it will be mostly around my neck but i would like easy acess. I like the look of the lowpro slingshot 300 aw but one thing that i'm not sure on... carrying my tripod. I know some bags have a place to put your tripod so you don't have to carry it around in your hands. Is this what you all do? or is there some other way around it. I hate having to carry around a tripod in my hand as i'm hiking or climbing up mountains etc.
To me it looks like the lowpro slingshot doesn't have anywhere to put your tripod, or am i wrong? How do you all carry your tripods around? and is there a bag out there similar to the slingshot that has space for your tripod? Thanks for your help
