More Info

A tripod to choose for arduous journeys where every scrap of weight and size must be judiciously considered, the Vortex High Country tripod is a five-segment unit made to accommodate spotting scopes or binoculars weighing up to 5 lbs (~2.3kg).

The High Country's ball head has a quick release mechanism which features the open channel design, instead of the more common fixed-position quick releases.  By having an open channel, it is able to have a built-in fore/aft adjustment between the quick release plate and the clamp, so that your binocular or telescope will be ideally balanced over the tripod's center-allowing you to carry a smaller rig while still getting stable observing.

The High Country is king of compactness and light weight, coming it at just 3.5 x 18.8" (8.9 x 47.8cm) WxL when collapsed and being only 2.1 lbs (~1kg) of load to bear.
