I don't. Just sling my tripods from an OpTech strap (external link).

I suppose it depends on what Manfrotto you are getting. I got a carrying case with my Manfrotto MK-394.

Or you can attach the Tripod to any proper Camera bag.

For carrying a light load or for a heavy load over a short distance, I use the bag from a folding chair. For heavy load across a long distance, I use a baseball bat bag. Mine has two padded straps. Heavy = >20lb.

Both approaches are pretty inexpensive.

I bought a tripod at costco and it came with a case. You have to remove the knobs to make it fit.

Well, from the advice on this thread I ordered the Optech strap yesterday, arrived today. I've tried it out and it seems good so far.......

After I drove over my Manfrotto and broke it, I bought it's replacement a proper case, in which it always resides unless I'm using it.

All my Induro tripods come with bags, But I only use them for storage, not for carrying.
