I doubt my 16-inch travel tripod will fit in the Aeronaut 30's main compartment. Aside from unzipping one interior divider (hopefully not both), how would I attach my tripod to the pack? Simply strapping it down seems like the easiest, if not the most elegant solution.
Too bad the Aeronaut doesn't have strap holders like the Guide's Pack. But I understand that it may look awkward on such a sleek bag.
