        Totally agree with the positive comments.
        I just wanted to add that another pretty good point for me (and I guess for a lot of photographers) that it fits perfectly into the upper part of the Lowepro fastpack 350 backpack. I am really happy about that, because this way it is even more portable.

          Comments about MeFOTO BackPacker Travel Tripod (Green):

          This is my favorite piece of kit. I do a lot of photography while hiking so I needed something compact and light weight that I could easily carry up a mountain. This tripod fit the bill and at a very budget friendly price too. It's not too heavy, folds up small and extends easily. It is nicely constructed and is plenty strudry. I find myself grabbing this tripod over my big bulky manfrotto even if I'm not hiking just because it's so easy to transport. As a good bonus, it comes with a nice sturdy carrying case!

            This tripod is both lightweight and constructed to easily stow in a backpack for hiking. It sets up quickly and easily and adjusts with precision. It handles a fully equipped SLR well and has great flexibility for height and angles. I'm delighted with it!

            Comments about MeFOTO BackPacker Travel Tripod (Green):

            Really easy to use, intuitive, no need for the instruction booklet. Product was heavier than I thought considering it is marketed for backpacking. Although it's pretty compact. Better to have a sturdier product since why I purchased a tripod is for camera stability.Clever retractable spring-loaded weight hook at the bottom of the center column for things that you want to hang and not have on the ground. Great company, responsive when I called to register product.I'd purchase another product from them after I use this product for a while to see if it lasts the test of time. With a 5 year warranty that feels reassuring.Go Green and happy trails!

            Comments about MeFOTO BackPacker Travel Tripod (Green):

            I bought this to replace several previous compact tripods I had no confidence in. I shoot landscapes, cityscapes and a great deal of light painting. Underground, tunnels, caves, abandoned Bldg's etc. My equipment works, they are tools. I needed a compact tripod to hold a Canon 50D and 5D Mark II with L Series lenses to photo an outing on the Hatfield McCoy ATV Trail System. Packed loose in the top tray of a foam filled tool box full of camera gear and ratchet strapped strapped to an ATV for 20 hours of serious bone jarring abuse. This thing was every thing I hoped it would be. Strong, compact and sturdy. This was the one item I offered no protection to as I rode boulder strew trails threw pools of mud while driving an 850cc machine like I stole it! IT IS TOUGH! I love this thing it fits in all my camera bags goes everywhere and I have confidence in it. Only complaint. Frequently the twist locks and knobs worked themselves loose. Leg sections would come completely out and I would have to dig for the nylon sleeves to reassemble before use. However that could have been solved with a little foam to dampen vibration.
