Sling Bag Recommendations

I'm looking for a sling/tripod bag to take my new tripod in. Now my tripod comes with a bag, it's pretty good actually, but I need to take other stuff (of similar dimensions, ie long and narrow, light stands, umbrellas etc). The Lowepro backpack I have, although it can take a tripod on the side/back, this new tripod is too big/heavy duty really for it (would suit a more travel tripod), and the additional stuff I want to carry is more similar shape to a tripod.

I have another lowepro sling bag already but it is not long and deep enough.

Where are all the good LONG slender sling/tripod bags be? Anyone recommend one if they use one?


TIA!

looking at the accessory reviews I only found a couple of reviews that might be of interest:

VidPro VidPro 35 inch Tripod Carrying Case reviews - Pentax Camera Accessory Review Database

The Car Camera Rig Rolled Fabric Carry Bag The Car Camera Rig Rolled Fabric Carry Bag. reviews - Pentax Camera Accessory Review Database

it might be nice if you choose to list a review when you find what you are looking for

What is the length of your folded tripod?

You might also check on one of those bags for folding chairs,

no

for Irish coffee I am willing to use Irish Whiskey

What is the difference between whisky and whiskey? - whiskyforeveryone.com

not the less produced gaelic whisky from Isle of Skye.

Gaelic Whiskies - Isle of Skye Scotch whisky from PrÓban na Linne Ltd

I struggled with this problem for years and never found an acceptable solution. Let me know if you find something.
