Tripod Holder on MiniTrekker-AW

Hi all

So, my problem is I have the MiniTrekker-AW (Lowepro - Mini Trekker AW ) and when it's raining and I use the cover I have to carry the tripod by hand.

Is the any kind of tripod holder accessory I can use on the bottom part of the backpack?

Thanks in advance

If there aren't any (I'm not aware of any) take the bag and tripod to a shoe repair place and ask if they can come up with something. They would most likely have the equipment and even material to help you out.

One of th eissues I see with any of the lowepro bags is that the tripod holder is always on the extreme back of the bag making it useless, because any heavy tropod is too far away from the body.

I don't use them.

No backpack is going to come with a cover that can also cover a tripod. as a result you will always have to figure something else out for the tripod.

Any mount for the tripod on a bag., would violate the rain cover integrtiy and lead to the contents getting wet.

You are better off with it in your nand, or getting a tripod that is small enough to put inside the bag, but that is also not practical

gaffa tape plastic bags to the inside of the lowepro covering as much of the inside walls and seams as possible, and don't use the rain cover... It will look horrendous but it'll work
