The GT3542L Mountaineer Series 3 Carbon Fiber Tripod from Gitzo features Carbon eXact tubing, which includes High Modulus carbon fiber in the lower leg sections, adding to their diameters and making the tripod more rigid and stronger than its predecessor. The GT3542L has a load capacity of 46.3 lb, extends to a maximum height of 70.1", and folds down to 23.2" for transport.

The center column on the tripod can be removed for Ground Level Set, which enables the tripod to reach its lowest height of 6.3". Its four-section legs are secured with twist locks that incorporate G-lock Ultra, which has an internal O-ring to prevent dust and particles from entering the leg system. The top spider has been redesigned to add rigidity, and large leg angle selectors give you more area to grip when readjusting leg angles. A ballast hook on the center column allows you to add weight to increase the tripod's stability.

        Comments about Gitzo GT3542L Mountaineer Series 3 Carbon Fiber Tripod (Long):

        I found the need to get this specific tripod after purchasing a RRS BH-55 full-sized ballhead that did not actually match my existing Gitzo GT1541T tripod as the base of the latter was smaller than the base of the ballhead. I also decided to purchase a more sturdy tripod for my needs. At first I was a bit hesitant due to my apprehensions on the weight difference between my existing Gitzo and this new one. However, upon receiving the Gitzo GT3542L Mountaineer Series 3 Carbon Fiber Tripod, everything changed...I was so please and realized that I made the right choice...

          Comments about Gitzo GT3542L Mountaineer Series 3 Carbon Fiber Tripod (Long):

          Beautiful sticks. After searching months for the right tripod for me the Gitzo 3542L is my keeper. The perfect balance of weight and durability. Paired with a RRS BH-55 these things are substantial but still surprisingly light. Quick release legs are smooth and the new ground level set works perfectly and is so quick to remove the center post. The spring lock leg levers are a joy to use. I also was looking at the 2 series but in the end these just felt right and are future proof.

          Comments about Gitzo GT3542L Mountaineer Series 3 Carbon Fiber Tripod (Long):

          Really impressed with this tripod. Used it for the first time this week in the Colorado mountains. Very, very solid even in the windy conditions in the mountains. I also have a Gitzo 1540 that I use when I hike but while the 3542L is heavier the stability is noticably greater.
