The 3 Legged Thing X4a Jack Evolution 2 Aluminum Alloy Tripod with AirHed 1 Ball Head is a stylish compact tripod that extends to 83", features a removable leg, leg-spreading, and a reversible center column that allows for low angle or macro shooting down to 9.0". The removable leg when topped with the included 4.0" column extension and the tripod's mounting plate and ball head, becomes a 60.9" monopod for gun-and-run scenarios.

The X4a Jack's legs are constructed from Stealth Aluminum Alloy which offers excellent lateral and torsional strength while reducing the weight to only 4.18 lb, while providing the stability of heavier tripods and supporting cameras up to 17.6 lb. It folds down to just 21.5" for easy packing and comes with a soft case and strap for storage and transport.

The included Evolution 2 AirHed 1 Ball Head is an ideal match to the X4a Jack legs. Weighing in at just under 1.0 lb including its quick release plate, the AirHed 1 supports up to 17.6 lb so stability is never an issue. The head features a bubble level, pan lock and clutch to adjust the tension on the ball.

  • X4a Jack Evolution 2 Magnesium Alloy Tripod

    The 3 Legged Thing X4a Jack Evolution 2 Magnesium Alloy Tripod is a stylish compact 79" tripod that features a removable leg, leg-spreading, and a reversible center column that allows for low angle or macro shooting down to 5.1". The removable leg when topped with the included 4.0" column extension and the tripod's mounting plate, becomes a 57" monopod for gun-and-run scenarios. The X4a Jack's legs are constructed from Stealth Magnesium Alloy which offers excellent lateral and torsional strength while reducing the weight to only 3.3 lb, while providing the stability of heavier tripods and supporting cameras up to 17.6 lb. It folds down to just 19.7" for easy packing and comes with a soft case and strap for storage and transport.

    Structural Integrity
    Constructed of Stealth Magnesium Alloy , the 26 mm (upper section diameter) legs offer excellent lateral and torsional strength
    Friction Locks
    Evo 2 Friction Locks with safety double break-point and easy-grip rubbers
    Durable Finish
    Retoned matte black anodizing and triple machined magnesium alloy parts for better durability and smoother finish
    Inverted Column
    With the column inverted and the legs fully extended, the user is able to lower the camera to the floor for macro photography. With an optional adapter, you can mount a laptop or iPad at the collar of the tripod to monitor your images while shooting tethered
    Tri-mono Mode
    Extending the center column with the legs retracted and spread to 55 degrees is known as Tri-mono mode. This is a much better alternative to putting expensive gear like long lenses on the ground and keeps them at the ready while shooting with other camera/lens setups in situations like sports events
    Extra Stability
    Re-engineered leg mechanisms, for greater stability, smoother and easier use. You can completely remove the column, and mount the head or even your camera directly to the tripod collar topped with the camera platform, providing the rigidity required for longer exposures. With the legs fully spread you can shoot as low as 5.1"
    Compact Package
    The design of the Jack is such that the tripod, when folded, will easily fit into most hand luggage. The D rings on the included bag allow it to be connected to another bag or cart for easy transport
  • AirHed 1 Magnesium Alloy Ball Head (Black)

    The 3 Legged Thing AirHed 1 Magnesium Alloy Ball Head (Black) is a stylish head for a DSLR or film camera that encourages precise adjustments and fast setup changes. Composed of an aircraft-grade T6061 magnesium alloy, the sturdy head supports loads up to 77.16 lb, so it's suitable for all cameras and most lenses.

    The AH1 head features a robust knurled knob that operates the Arca-style quick-release clamp. Additional knurled knobs manipulate the ball head's pan lock and ball/tilt lock. The pan-lock knob features an inset tension control that affects the play of the ball's movement.

    The included quick-release plate, also magnesium, is compatible with BlackRapid's R-Strap camera slings, by way of its FastenR-T1 camera screw. The 1/4"-20 camera screw's flip-up D-ring allows you to tighten it to your camera easily. This ring allows you to attach your camera to an R-Strap and quickly move it from around your neck or shoulder to the AirHed 1 without removing the sling.

    Double bubble on the rear of the quick-release assembly for precise leveling
    90° slot for portrait orientation
