For tripods and heads, I'm a huge fan of Feisol. They aren't cheap, but they also aren't priced in Gitzo territory.
They do seem very good indeed, and are very strong considering their weight.
For some reason, they don't get much respect on this forum.
I don't know why.
Perhaps they don't cost enough.
I use a small backpack (Lowe Pro Mini Trecker IIRC), but I carry more lenses than most people.

I am a huge fan of the Tiltall tripod. It's somewhat of a legend; people have used theirs for over 30 years with no problems. The great thing is if something does break, the company has replacements for every single part, and they'll ship them to you.

For a bag, I love my Kata Sensitivity V. Big enough to hold 3 lenses (or more), and everything else I need. It's made of neoprene, so it can stretch and mold to hold whatever I put in it. It's a great bag.

I am very new to photography, to take this as you want, but there are plenty of great bags for cheap on eBay, even more if you find a good used one.

I found a new in box premium SLR bag from the late 90's that I got for under $20. It has alot of room and pockets for accessories and it padded very well to.

I got my tripod from a Pawnshop for $20 bucks and am very happy with it as well. I have also seen a few decent ones at my local Goodwill.
