The Summit XLT Tripod With Ball Head from Vortex delivers the perfect combination of size, weight, rugged build and fast operation. It supports up to 11 lb up to a maximum height of 5.34', and can be used as low as 7.6" using the split center column. It weighs only 3.6 lb. The ball head reduces bulk and weight, and the tripod folds down to just 18.1". And the anodized aluminum legs, variable leg angles, and rubber feet combine to make this a versatile and compact support.
