I just purchased a 3531S and a Markins M20 head. The combo is very sturdy and I can't wait to get it out and give it a try soon. I currently carry a lot of my gear in a Tamrac Exp 7....300 f2.8, 70-200 f2.8 and 17-40. My body is about to be a new to me Mk III!! My question is:

How do most folks carry this type of tripod/head combo? I can tie it on the back of the Exp 7 but it really sticks out over the top of my head and obviously the backpack. Any feedback(pics) would be appreciated. Thanks!!

I have the Expedition 8 and I usually stick the tripod on the side of the bag.

Depends how far I'm going. Side of my multi-day pack, over the shoulder, tripod holder on my Vertex 200, etc. Try what's comfortable and works for you – you'll love that combo though!

I got some pads for my sticks, which makes carrying the setup over my should pretty nice.

I often leave the camera attached and just hoist the whole thing over one shoulder, especially if I'm moving around a particular spot a lot.

I have the G1325, which is the older version of the 3531 I believe. Technically I believe it's actually bigger (larger diameter legs). I carry it on the side of my pack, or use a tripod shoulder strap if I'm carrying a shoulder bag. I also have leg covers on it so many times you will find it over my shoulder with camera attached.

I have a Tamrac tripod bag with a shoulder strap. I wear it over my shoulder (a la messenger bag style) even when wearing a backpack.
