The MeFOTO WalkAbout is a 5-section aluminum alloy monopod and walking stick combination that rises to a maximum height of 59.1", folds down to 18.1" and weighs only 1.4 lb. The WalkAbout is topped with a comfortable titanium colored knob with an inlaid compass for easy reference when hiking. Height is adjustable with twist locks with titanium colored accent rings that echo the knob. The removable knob reveals a 1/4"-20 screw that can handle a camera directly or accept an optional tripod head. The top leg section features a rubberized grip and wrist strap while the 30.9 lb weight capacity ensures steady support whether used as a monopod or walking stick.
