Carbon Fiber Travel Tripod with Ball Head in 2 Colors

Straddling the divide between compact travel and professional tripod systems, the 3 Legged Thing Leo offers lots of functionality in small, lightweight package. It features an eight-layer carbon fiber construction for greater durability, a precision-engineered leg-lock system for stability and rigidity, and a patented tri-mount plate complete with hollowed spurs for clip-on devices. Along with a detachable monopod, it has a minimum height of 4.75 inches for low-level shooting and an 88-pound variable load capacity when paired with the included AirHed Switch ballhead .The D-ring and Toolz assembly takes the place of a traditional spring hook, and the ¼-inch and ⅜-inch screw foot has multiple accessory options for adaptability in any terrain.

Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice between the Leo Eclipse (gunmetal gray) and the Leo Equinox (bronze). These tripods are functionally identical and differ only in color.
