Gimble Carring Bag

Has anyone come up with a good carring bag that has a way to hook it to your shoulder bag or backpack?

Thanks Jack

The closest I've come is this bag.

Think Tank Photo Sling-O-Matic 10 Sling Camera Bag (Black) 430

Because this bag is rectangular, and can be configured, it works pretty well.

I just need a Draw String type bag to hook to my Shoulder bag. It just needs to hold my Gimble Head for my Tripod.
But thanks anyway..

Do you mean for a gimbal head?

Does this mean you remove the head from your tripod for transport? If so that sounds like quite an ordeal every time you want to shoot or move involving a screw driver each time to tighten the set screws.

Why not find a tripod bag that fits your tripod with the gimbal head attached?

My Gimbal/video head/slider sits on my leveling post - which is one of those "once-you-use-it-you-never-go-back" devices.



I made custom set screws to make getting on and off easy

My cheap Gimble Head just unscrews from my tripod. No problems and it stays tight by just a turn of my hand on my Feisol Tripod

That would be quite the bag... Shaped like an oversized tennis racket bag, I guess?

This is one of those places that I appreciate my "eric the half-a-gimbal" Wimberley Sidekick. It takes up less room than a lens in my packed camera bag...

I went to order the Jobu bag and it came up with $58 shipping to the USA!!!
Too expensive for me from the Jobu site!

B&H has it for FREE shipping!

My ProMediaGear Gimbal does not fit the Jobu Bag.
My Gimbal is too big.
Great. Another bag is now going to sit in my closet.

Isn't that what the marketplace is for?
Still, B&H should take it back... (Says the guy with 10 Kata bags!).

The Jobu was $25 with free shipping. If I sell it I will lose too much based in shipping.
$25 is below my threshold of "mess with".
