Identical to the description by Laurent, my 4x5, folded and strapped for security, is stowed in a LowePro Trekker AW in the space usually reserved for my second 35mm body and 2 lenses for same (can't take everything as it will be too much weight). The tripod is slung over shoulder and doubles as a walking staff when traversing rainforest terrain (very slippery) or when crossing rivers.
