I hike daily with a backpack full of camera gear and a tripod over my shoulder. Usually my D300 DSLR is mounted securely on the end of the tripod. I was looking for a handle for the tripod to provide an alternate way of carrying it. I hadn't fully thought through what that handle would have to do, but fortunately the designers of this handle had. The rubber coated handle is comfortable and sturdy. It includes straps that hold the tripod legs closed as well as straps that secure it to one of the legs even when it is not in use. When it is not being used, I'm totally unaware of it being there; it is never in the way. It should fit any tripod.
I can't imagine anything that might have made this better. However, I have discovered that having a handle is not as useful as I had thought it would be. While the handle can be placed anywhere on the tripod legs, the D300 is a heavy camera, and with the camera mounted on the tripod end, it will never be in balance. It's balanced enough to carry the assembly by the handle, but it requires a bit of care. I've also found carrying by the handle is ultimately more tiring than carrying over my shoulder like a rifle. However, in spite of these issues, the handle provides a useful change of position while hiking, and it is useful for grabbing the tripod from the back of my car or other hard to reach places. In any case, this is so inexpensive that even if used only occaionally, it's great to have when needed. Every tripod should have one.
