    1.25" Tripod Leg Wraps (Set of 3) is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mediocre Good idea - mediocre implementation. This product is simply built from the foam used to cover copper plumbing pipes that is available at any home building store. The foam is covered with a separate nylon sock. The socks works fairly well but does tend to move and creep when you grab it. The big problem with this product is: the foam is too thick. If it were half as thick and twice as dense, this product would get a better rating from me. I have ordered neoprene foam from an industrial supplier to do the job right.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functional AND Nice Looking I put these on the upper section of my Gitzo GT3530S tripod. They were easy to fit and apply. NOTE: DO NOT cut the cloth sock that surrounds the foam leg wrap. The instrtuctions say that you can tuck the excess material into the foam wraps, but I found this somewhat difficult to make it look right. VERY happy overall. Be sure to order the correct size for your particular tripod leg diameter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best leg cover option I have tried the other brands and I really dislike the Velcro seam on all the others. The Optech pads are easy to install, stay put, and look good. But above all that they cushion and protect, just as they should. I have used these for many different tripods, and will continue to install them on any new tripod purchase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent product. Very easy to install. Makes carrying my Tiltall tripod much easier. The only reason for 4 stars and not five as I want to see how it holds up over time. I would recommend this product for anyone with sore shoulders. Nothing negative to say.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from OP/Tech Tripod Leg Wraps- pipe insulator The idea of a padded leg wrap is great. Putting the tripod legs in a bag means the biggest part of the tripod is padded. But what I got from OP/TECh is a nylon stretch sleeve and very thick, 1 plumbing pipe insulation (1&1/4 ID). The insulation is too thick to allow folding down the legs in the closed position. It comes with sticky tape down a slit in the closed cell foam with a peel back liner. I've used a lot of this to insulate plumbing pipes. The tape does not always line up edge-to-edge and often gets sticky. I was not going to put this on my $200 tripod legs. I went to the builders supply store and found better, thinner pipe insulation that uses a partial slit designed that rips open and retains it's shape. I left the slit un-ripped and took the tripod legs apart one at a time. I slipped each insulated pipe wrap over each leg with the nylon stretch sleeve in place. That was easier and better than trying to work the sleeve over the thick insulation after the foam is in place. I like how it came out but felt the product was not well described or specified. I didn't know the pipe insulation was too big for the tripod legs until I got it. I would not recommend using the sticky tape variety of pipe insulation on an expensive tripod. The nylon sleeve is good enough if it lasts (we'll see). I would receommend this product for anyone willing to go search for the right closed cell foam pipe insulation to fit their tripod legs. Measure your tripod leg diameter and find the same or slightly larger ID insulation. It comes in 6 foot lengths. Buy one and cut it to length with a sharp knife (you have to cut the supplied foam anyway). The insulation is cheap so you could buy two sizes and try them out at home. Use the other one to insulate your pipes.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Affordable with a few drawbacks 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.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not recommended I wasn't expecting much for the price - but was especially disappointed with the thickness of the wraps (almost too thick to comfortably carry in one hand) and the fact they slipped around a bit and the foam makes a squeaky noise when slipping.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shoulder saver Replaced the rather short shoulder pads that came on my Induro tripod with these which are long enough to protect your shoulder whatever the balance point may be when carrying the tripod with attached camera over your shoulder. (Some say never carry tripod with camera attached over your shoulder but I don't know anyone who doesn't.)These leg wraps are easy to put on the tripod - just be sure to follow the instructions for ordering the correct size using diameter of tripod leg and the instructions for installing the pads. The only thing I can see that may be a problem is that the knit type covers for the pads may snag on something or wear out quickly. Other brands have covers of heavier material but also cost about twice what these cost.
