For those photographers or outdoor enthusiasts seeking comfort in an alternative carrying system, OP/TECH USA offers the Tripod Leg Wraps™. Each leg is individually wrapped to protect the legs against damage and to give you added comfort against shoulder fatigue. It also keeps the cold metal legs "under wraps" and away from your skin. First, apply the closed-cell foam pads to the legs. These are held firmly in place with a strip of low-tack tape which secures the wraps without leaving a sticky residue. Second, the durable Cordura® leggings are stretched snugly over the foam pads to form a seamless, comfortable fit.
The Tripod Leg Wraps™are available in 1", 1.25" and 1.5" diameter leg sizes. The 17" length can be customized to fit the user's tripod by merely cutting the foam pads with a serrated knife (Do not cut the Cordura® leggings). Finally, you can toss your tripod over your shoulder in comfort!

I've been using these for almost two years. A couple of comments: The covers are some kind of knit material which tends to bunch up and shift up and down; sometimes shifting enough to cover the tripod leg releases. The foam pad has a strip of tape which sticks to the tripod leg. In cold weather the tape doesn't stick so the pad rotates around the leg. It doesn't cause any harm but is disconcerting. And if you ever want to remove the pad and leg wrap the tape is very difficult to remove from the leg. I had to scrape and use "Glue Gone" for about 10 minutes per leg.
The Tripod Leg Wraps only come in black. You do not need to disassemble your tripod to install the Tripod Leg Wraps. If you go to the product page, click on the "Instructions" tab, and download the Instruction Sheet, you can see how they are installed.
