Peak Design is back with another piece of gear that photographers can lust over: the Travel Tripod. The Kickstarter is already funded with $3.5 million, so you’d definitely get this in your hand if you are willing to back it!
This Travel Tripod solves an old issue with travel tripods by eliminating half the storage volume for maximum portability, without losing out on functionality. The best thing is when the tripod is fully collapsed, you can carry the tripod in your backpack’s water bottle pocket!
There’s a lot more to this amazing piece of gear, but everything is covered well on the Kickstarter page already. Backing at the $289 level will get you the anodized aluminum alloy version, while $479 will net you the ultralight carbon fiber model.
