The 3 Legged Thing X1.1a Adrian 5-Section Magnesium Alloy Tripod is a stylish and phenomenally compact travel tripod that features a removable, reversible center column. This column helps the 5-section tripod extend to a maximum height of 59.8" and retract to a very small 16.5" folded length.

The versatile X1.1a Adrian's legs are composed of aircraft-grade T6061 magnesium alloy for a supreme balance of light weight, sturdiness, and durability – the tripod weighs just 3.0 lb. One of those legs unscrews to become a monopod. The center column is both removable and reversible to accommodate shooting from the lowest of low angles.

Leg angles can be set at three different positions; at their widest and with the column removed, the top of the tripod chassis sits only 5.0" from the ground. The leg angles can be set independently to support stable shooting on uneven surfaces.
