Niche yet usefully practical – that would be a good way of describing tripod bags and cases specifically made for transporting photography and video tripods, studio stands, umbrellas, microphone booms, modifiers and sliders – and sometimes all of these at once. 

While a bag or a case for these larger accessories is probably not the first purchase any photographer or videographer will have thought of, it’s one that can transform the practicality of our setup for the better, for sure. Not only do dedicated tripod bags and cases make everything less cumbersome to carry or save us having to cram everything into our main camera bag, they’re ideal when traveling. They can be taken as hand luggage, slung over our shoulder, or even stored in a cargo hold of a plane as required.
