Product Details

For years, traditional tripods have suffered from needless bulk and wasted space.

Peak Design have 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.

Product Reviews


Product finish could be improved slightly (some small chips on parts when removed new from the box) and if the bag was slightly bigger it would be much easier to fit in- the bag is very tight. However, the tripod is very compact, seems very stable and is really quick to get out and use with the flip locks on the legs. The ball head is also smooth and easy to use too.

Although I would have preferred the carbon fibre version I am still extremely pleased with the aluminium version. It is compact; neat to carry and easily packed into a rucksack. It appears to be well made and is quick to assemble and disassemble. Price from Camera World was very competitive.

The tripod is perfect for my use. Small, fits in my case, stable, quick to erect and use.

While heavier than the carbon fibre version this was in budget for Black Friday so I took the plunge and picked one up. Beautifully designed and made it performs as expected. The ring lock system is easy to use and it is all very compact. It is similar in weight to many carbon fibre competitors and a little weight adds to stability too so overall very happy. If using in cold weather it’s worth insulating the leg tops to stop skin to metal contact. A layer or anti-slip mesh or similar will work, it only needs to stop contact, not keep it warm!

This is a very well designed and made tripod which is very easy to set up, and is very compact when folded. The only downside is that it is a bit on the heavy side in it's aluminium version, but as I do not use a tripod often, the price for the carbon fibre version was difficult to justify. Over all I am most impressed with it and expect it to give many years of reliable use.

I already owned a manfrotto travel tripod and thought long and hard about spending a lot more money on something that might only be slightly better. Having taken the plunge I can say that it was money well spent. This tripod is far more stable than I even imagined and is also more versatile and more compact. The Peak Design travel tripod is a brilliant piece of kit and the only improvement I would wish for is the ability to change from rubber to spiked feet without needing a tool. I love this tripod and the only real downside is that it is quite heavy for something of such compact proportions.

Very compact tripod that easily slips on to my backpack.
