Could use it as a walking stick/defensive weapon?

There is the Gitzo traveller - use the hook on the bottom to hang you bag - and provide the extra stability.

For the OP:
You can get webbing straps from any camping shop or if you want leather try a cycling shop for Brooks or Carradice saddle bag straps.
You are going to China - it should be easy to find someone willing to sew them on to the underside of your bag.
It's the weird colour scheme that freaks me. Every time you try to operate one of these weird black controls, which are labeled in black on a black background, a small black light lights up black to let you know you've done it.

Yes a long time ago I once took a tripod into a plane cabin with spikes on it. Those days are long gone...
turns out that the main issue of my Gitzo is the rubber grips, they are tried and had lost elasticity, so it is hard to grip firm to extend.
