How is everyone attaching their tripod to their pack? Specifically KU packs?
I did a brief search and read mention of a Kifaru spotter carrier but didn't see anything on the website.

I started out using a long pocket and then switched over to just hanging it on the straps as shown in the pic. I am now thinking about some kind of cordura holster for the bottom of the legs to slip in. Has this already been done?

Lets see some pics

I use KU water bottle holder on the side attach point. I put bottom of tripod in the water bottle holder and run the top up through the straps like you are doing.

My spotter will live in a KU Long pocket but the tripod usually rides like you have shown in the pic except I to two legs inside the strap and one over on the outside, just seems to keep it a bit more secure for going through the brush/alders.

Is abrasion a concern for anyone? I don't think it will ever be a problem, but an once of prevention......

I run a relatively cheaper aluminum tripod so abrasion isn't of much concern for me. If I had a Gitzo that costs 3X the price I might baby it a bit more I guess.

I'm running the outdoorsman, its smooth, but still. I was actually worrying more about the pack over the long term.
