The Think Tank Photo spin-off MindShift Gear has developed a solution for carrying a tripod on a hike.

MindShift Gear claims you can carry just the tripod (even fully extended) or leave a dSLR body with a lens up to 70-200mm attached to the tripod. The kit leaves your hands free to deal with more pressing issues, like keeping your balance as you navigate rough terrain.
