Product Highlights
  • Supports 8.0 lbs (3.6kg)

The Ridgeview tripod from Vortex Optics is their full-height aluminum model for serious backcountry hikes, getting to nearly 61" (~155cm) at full extension and weighing 3.6 lbs (~1.6kg).

The Ridgeview's lever-locking ball head has an open channel style quick release clamp, which does not have a fixed fore and aft relationship with the quick release plate like so many more common quick release systems employ.  This allows for a sliding adjustment for the quick release plate, so that you can perfectly center the weight of the spotting scope or binocular directly over the tripod (and thus achieve stable viewing despite carrying more narrow diameter, lighter-class leg segments).

Independently-adjustable, dual-angle leg segments allow observing upon uneven terrain
'Open channel' style quick release clamp ideally balances spotting scope
Simple flipping leg lock levers
Weight balance hook at bottom of center column
Angled rubber leg tips
