The Ultimate Monopod Carry Bag
Came up with a solution for a carry bag to protect a monopod (especially for those of us with a Carbon Fiber monopod). It is a "rod and reel carry bag" . They are made of a PVC tube that is covered with a nice waterproof Cordura materia with a nylon carry handle. Inside the tube is nice fitted padding and a bulging padded top area (normally for a reel)but in this case ideal to allow for the fit of a ballhead or swivel head and quick release. My local fishing supply shop had them in all sizes, mine was only $29.95. Check this out if you need to protect your monopod from the elements and such.
