The Gitzo GM5561T Traveler 6x Carbon Fiber Monopod is an extremely sturdy and relatively lightweight and compact monopod. This monopod, when completely folded, stands at a diminutive 16.3", weighs about 1.6 lbs, and might even fit into a larger camera backpack or case. At 61.2" when fully extended, this Traveler model rises as tall as most standard Gitzo monopods.
This Traveler monopod also incorporates Gitzo's revolutionary 6X technology tube, which reduces overall monopods weight up to 25% percent without sacrificing strength or stability.
