So I have gotten quite a nice offer on a 055XPROB and a 498RC2 ballhead.
The main reason for not on taking the offer so far, is that my current backpack (The Kata DPS-3n1-30) can't attach anywhere near the size of the 055XPROB.

I have been googleing some time and haven't been able to find any backpack yet, but maybe POTN has some suggestions?

EDIT: I'm also considering a smaller tripod, since I'm into urban exploration where you don't necessarily have room for the tripod to be open at the maximum height. I'm really just trying to get a good quality tripod (pref. Manfrotto) which is sturdy and will fit onto a backpack. But looking at the size that Kata provides as a maximum for tripods on their strap doesn't leave you with that many choices. Sizes here (external link). So i'm thinking about getting a new backpack anyway?

Why do you want to hold the tripod inside the backpack as opposed to attaching it from the side/middle like most backpacks do?

That was also what I meant, English isn't my first language so sometimes I can't express myself correctly.
Thanks for pointing it out, fixing it asap! :)

Why Manfrotto? Would something that holds slightly less weight be okay?

Benro's Travel Angels are small (14" to 15" long) but hold less weight (5-6lbs) which would be easier to fit in a backpack.

But, question is, why try to fit it in the backpack in the first place?

Well I have only tried a Manfrotto a couple of times and the generel feel of quality is great. So it's mainly because I want a good quality tripod. I have the Velbon DF60 and as you might know the overall quality is pretty bad.

I haven't heard about Benro's Travel Angels, since the 5DII's weight only is like 1.8 lbs it should leave plenty weight for a lens.

It's suppose to go onto the backpack, not in it. English isn't my first language, so I'm not sure where I screwed up and what to replace it with? :lol:

The Lowepro Vertex200AW allows the 055PRO to sit in a removable cup on the centre line of the backpack. Maybe not a perfect solution but it seems to work.

I must say I'm quite hooked on the Benro Travel Angel, I looked them up and they seem nice.

Do you have experience with any of the Travel Angels on http://www.amazon.co.u​k (external link) ? I don't live in the US and there's no Danish suppliers of Travel Angels, so I have to order from amazon.co.uk.

You can get the newer travel angels for even cheaper from eBay (Hong Kong/China) with no danger of being cheated from reputed dealers. The ones on Amazon are the older generation tripods.

That would be pretty cool, I looked on ebay.co.uk and found this:

Due to taxes and import, it's gonna cost me £150. Is it worth it? :)
