What you ask for exists... somewhat.

Manfrotto made a shoulder bag with a zippered compartment for a tripod some years ago, but it only fit one of their own tripods properly.

Peak design lets you strap the tripod inside the top flat of their V1 messenger bag, and with their most recent messenger and sling they have provisions to attach the tripod case (their own, or someone else's) to the bottom. Placing the tripod in the case makes it less conspicuous. Some bags like the backpacks from Wandrd and Peak design let you place a compact tripod on the inside (I placed a big lens but ffold the top section and a tripod fits perfectly):

why no camera bag with hidden tripod
This is perhaps just as well in my case... as I've always used massive tripods.

Not a camera bag and not a tripod, but I found this tackle box bag with table legs.

May I suggest that, instead of 'swinging' it, which gives your opponent the opportunity to grab it, just grip it below the head and bring the head up smartly beneath the villain's chin. This should knock him (sorry, ladies, but far more likely) backwards, off balance and probably off his feet. It is then up to you - but only one should walk away. Another ruse would be to grasp your tripod in your 'other' hand (left, if you are right-handed) - the WBT will be watching that, so you can bring the heel of your unoccupied hand hard up under his chin, with a similar result, but without the risk of being accused of using a weapon.

Maybe there should be a thread 'Self defence for photographers' !
How about just a set of stickers saying No Sony, Nikon, or Canon inside

Wish it was that easy. My experience is that thieves wouldn't know the difference. Years ago I had three 35mm SLR Minoltas stolen, but the thief didn't touch my then new Pentax 645 which with the lenses was worth more than those Minoltas.

I agree; most thieves are not real smart or at least not very discerning.

Many years ago at my parents home neighborhood kids pushed through a rusty screen
opened my dresser drawer, and from my camera bag made off with only my old Nikon F,
leaving a bunch of Nikkor lenses, each one worth more than the camera body they stole...

You could design your own camera bag. Maybe we'll find it useful and buy it (if you make a special price for us, of course &#128521.
