Promaster XC-M Hipster & StrapThe ProMaster Hipster and Strap works with all models of XC-M tripods. This unique system offers multiple ways of carrying a tripod. There are two parts to this system, 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 the front so the tripod can be removed lightning fast. 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.
But wait, there's more! 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.
