I'm really hard on my poor old aluminum manfrotto tripod. I bought it back in the late 90's. I don't keep it in a fancy bag or anything. I just throw it in the back of my van. I don't think twice about getting it wet or dirty. It continues to just work. I don't know if my style would work with a carbon fiber tripod for photography. I do use a carbon fiber tripod for video though. And I feel I have to baby it-which drives me nuts. It cost $$$$$$, and I keep it in a fancy petrol bag. And as easy as I am with it, it just feels so delicate. I'll be surprised if it lasts a whole season of work without failing....
