For years, traditional tripods have suffered from needless bulk and wasted space. We spent 4 years redesigning the tripod from the ground up, creating a travel tripod that packs down to the diameter of a water bottle—without compromising height, stability, or features.
Radically faster to setup and takedown, our tripod features ergonomic adjustment points, built-in mobile compatibility, and thoughtful details at every turn. Plus, it’s built for life on the road: durable, 100% serviceable, and backed by the Peak Design lifetime guarantee. Tripod includes legs, ballhead, protective soft case, ARCA-compatbile Standard Plate, mobile mount, hex tool with carrying clip, and bushing removal tool for maintenance. See Specs section below for details.
PRO PERFORMANCE. HALF THE SIZE.
The Travel Tripod brings you pro-level stability, load capacity, and deployed height, yet packs down to the diameter of a water bottle. A ground-up redesign of the traditional tripod, the Travel Tripod is the result of 4 years of engineering.
We cut the fat, FITTING MORE INTO LESS
Our Travel Tripod packs down to half the volume of traditional tripods without sacrificing height or stability. How? 4 years of engineering.
