What's a 5.11 Drop Pouch? It's a little pouch you can attach to your camera bag to carry the extra things you need every now and then, like a water bottle. The reason we are recommend this particular bag is because it is built to fold up when not in use and the attachments to your belt or bag is pretty strong. There is also a velcro flap and draw string at the top so you can close the top.

If you like to carry a monopod but don't know what to do with it when it's not in use, try adding a flashlight holder to your bag. A D cell battery flashlight belt holster is the perfect holder for your monopod. You can either attach it to your belt or your bag, depending on the configuration of your bag.

Now that's a cheap trick!!
