This unique system has multiple ways of carrying a tripod. There are two parts, the hipster and the strap. The hipster is a holster which allows two of the tripod’s legs to slide into it while one leg overlaps its front, giving your quick access to your tripod. The shoulder strap has a soft shoulder pad for comfortable carrying.
- The hipster is a holster which allows two of the tripod’s legs to slide into it while one leg overlaps its front. Allowing you quick access to your tripod. The hipster easily attaches to a belt or camera bag/backpack using its velcro-loop attachment on its back side. The hipster also has two metal D-rings which act as quick-connection points for the strap. Using the quick release metal buckles on the strap you can attach the hipster and carry your tripod over your shoulder.
- The shoulder strap has a soft shoulder pad for comfortable carrying. It also has a tool pouch built-in, which is a great way to carry spare wrenches for adjustments in the field. Since every XC-M includes a tool kit the integrated pouch on this strap is a very convenient way of storing and carrying those tools.
- Inside of the hipster is a sewn-in pocket. When wearing the hipster on your belt in front of your body, you can convert your XC-M into a monopod and place the foot of the monopod into this pocket for stability. This makes a great stabilizing rig, especially for videography.
