Product Highlights
  • 5.1' Maximum Height

  • 180° Reversible Legs
  • Load Capacity of 6.6 lb
  • Weighs Just 2.53 lb

The Velbon UT 43D II 6-Section Aluminum Travel Tripod with Ball Head features a remarkable ratio of maximum height (5.1') to folded length (11.3"), making it an excellent choice for backpackers and other travelers who need a lightweight & compact yet highly functional camera support.

That ratio is a result of several factors: the two-section center column, the six sections of the aluminum legs, the fact that each leg section disappears completely inside the one above, and the 180° folding of the legs, by which the feet line up perfectly with the top of the included QHD-43D ball head. Together the head and the UT 43D II tripod weigh just 2.53 lb.
