Vortex High Country overview

  • 1Description

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.

Independently-adjustable, dual-angle leg segments allow low working heights or observing upon uneven terrain
'Open channel' style quick release clamp ideally balances spotting scope
Simple flipping leg lock levers
Angled rubber leg tips
