    I found the perfect Tripod bag

    My mom is in town doing some sewing. Gonna get some old kid's curtains and make a curtain area for my darkroom (some of it teddy bear patterns but its just to keep dog hair out of the area). I was thinking of getting some denim from the fabric store to make a tripod roll when it hit me!

    I have about 3 or 4 pairs of old Levi's. I slipped the tripod in one of the legs and presto! Works great. I just need to close the leg and patch a hole. Kinda cool.

    McGuyverismm works.

    Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. And you get a couple of pockets to boot!

    Great idea, Eric! You can even string a belt through the loops to carry it with!

    My tripod bag is actually the bag that came with a collapsing picnic chair...the fabric and tubular metal type chair that collapses into itself...they became popular about 10 years ago. It turns out that the bag from one of these chairs fits my Berlebach perfectly. Not having any ability with a sewing machine, this was the best solution I could come up with.

    I like the blue jeans leg idea. Thanks for sharing.
    Film is cheap. Opportunities are priceless.

    This is almost Twilight Zone - ish... I have two close friends who share my passion for photography... and we all use folding picnic chair bags!!! Scary.

    And I will persevere, and not let myself crack any of the million and one crude and offensive jokes that flooded my head at the combination of pants and tripods...

    I too use the collapsing picnic chair bag as a tripod bag. It is hard to beat for functionality and low price.
