Anyone using a manfrotto strap on their tripod? Is it comfy to walk around with? I have the 190xprob, and would like to maybe buy one.

I've got one. The only issue i find is that it really slows down the process of setting up the tripod and taking it down.

I'm thinking of attaching a ring to one of the legs, and having the bottom end clip to that.

Otherwise, it's pretty comfy, and it ensures the tripod doesn't slip around.

Bought one a few years back. Easier to carry around

I used to have one on my Bogen 3221 which I sold years ago. Here is a photo of it

and a photo of the top attachment point for the strap on Manfrotto/Bogen tripods

I still have one on my Bogen 3236 which I have for my large format monorail camera.
A strap need not slow you down...I didn't feel it slowed me down with my 3221. I think some folks make that comment because some users put the lower loop around all three legs to hold them closed; I put the loop only around a single leg (as shown in the first photo) and I never had a problem of legs spreading while on my shoulder.

I like shoulder straps on tripods so much that I bought a OpTech Super Classic binocular-end strap which I can use with my Gitzo tripod.

Mine has a quick connector on the end that goes around the legs. Just pop the clip and your free to set up. Maybe you have a different version?

I don't see how it slows you down, I would think attaching it to a backpack would make it even slower. I've never used that strap but I do prefer having my tripod on a shoulder strap or even a case but thats a PITA.

I've never tried this but it looks like an interesting way to carry it.

Mine had a loop to slip around the bottom of the legs, I didn't care for that, but it worked and was no big deal. Used on the original Wilderness Tripod.
