3 Legged Thing TRAVIS overview

  • 1Description

In a blue and orange color scheme, the Travis Aluminum Travel Tripod with AirHed Neo Ball Head from 3 Legged Thing is a four-section aluminum tripod which extends to a maximum height of 65" and drops as low as 4.25". At the 23° angle leg spread, which is considered a normal stance, the tripod can support a maximum of 40 lb, however, when the legs are set at the 55° and 80° stances they may support less weight. The implementation of rubber-coated twist locks is also a welcome addition, improving grip and protecting user's hands from a hot or cold aluminum surface.

The single-section rapid center column can be used upright or inverted, enabling the user to raise the tripod to any height, while using the center column to make small adjustments. Folding the legs 180° in reverse allows the user to make the tripod more compact for travel or storage.

The included Neo ball head is an ultra compact, single lock head which features one knob for control of both the pan and ball. A separate knob controls the lock for the Arca-type compatible clamp which includes a basic Arca-style plate with 1/4"-20 mounting thread.

As is common with 3 Legged Thing tripods, the Travis features a detachable leg with standard 3/8"-16 threads at both ends. The Tri-mount center column plate and threaded bolt can be unscrewed and removed from the top of the center column, then screwed directly onto the leg. The detachable leg can be used as a monopod, microphone boom, or selfie stick depending on the needs of the user.

3 Position Leg-Angle Stops
The legs spread to three angles of 23°, 55°, and 80°
Reversible Folding Legs
Fold legs 180° in reverse for compactness and storage
Arca-Type Ball Head
Ball head utilizes an Arca-type clamp and includes an Arca-type compatible quick release plate

    3 Legged Thing TRAVIS reviews

    Travis Aluminum Travel Tripod with AirHed Neo Ball Head (Blue and Orange) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality, Sturdy and Light I've been shooting with my 3 Legged Thing for a couple of weeks now and have no complaints. All of the twist locks work perfectly, although it seems that there is a dual position lock on the center post. When the center post is completely locked, there is no spinning of the center post within the locked mechanism. I like the compactness of it, the 65 height (feels sturdy with the center post fully extended), and the relatively light weight (with a 40 lb. load capacity). I'm a traveler, so sturdiness, weight and folded length are important. All in all, this is a quality product and I'm happy I made the purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Proved its worth I did a lot of research on tripods before I settled with Travis by 3 Legged Things. I needed a good quality tripod for my trip to Iceland. This guy did not disappoint. Rain, rivers, geysers, snow, sand, ice, and high winds didn't bother this guy at all. It was quick and easy to set up no matter the conditions. I liked how wide I could set up the tripod while enduring the high winds at Black Sand Beach. Just got stuck in and I was shooting with no problems.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this tripod I bought this tripod for my recent trip to Norway to shoot the northern lights on a ship. I have a 1200 dollar Gitzo tripod, great, but way too heavy so I started looking at carbon fiber tripods which for a travel was running 250 and way up. People commented that the 250 tripods had legs that would sometimes fall off, really, plus it did't hold a lot, you'll see the reviews. Now, I love B&H, I don't work for them, but they usually give me great advice, the first guy just really didn't know tripods, looked up a few after putting me on hold and recommended a 275 dollar tripod that had a regular head and not a ball head, when traveling a ball head can be a bit faster so you don't miss a shot. The second time I called i spoke to what sounded like an older gentleman, not that it matters, but under a minute he recommended an 180 dollar tripod that sounded a bit cheap for what I was looking at. He sounded confident and told me the last 5 people who bought it gave it five stars so I said what the hell so I bought it. I love this tripod, it's solid as hell, holds 40 pounds, looks great, got lots of compliments and comes with a case. It even comes with a screw driver that clips on to it so you don't have to look for a coin to tighten the plate to your camera. Its also light enough to carry, but heavy enough that you don't worry about your camera, enough said, five solid stars. Thanks again to the guy who recommended it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Travel Tripod This is a nice travel tripod, very compact. It has a good ball head included. It is very well made and the machining on the tripod and ball head are very tight which is to say very well done. I have my doubts about the load weight but any DSLR with all but the biggest of lenses it will work well and safely hold your camera. It is probably a little light for windy work but lower the height and add your bag for weight. For travel this tripod is worth paying a little extra for the quality.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid tripod, not as packable as I thought This is a solid tripod. I'm happy with the price and overall design. I purchased it to take backpacking and bike touring, so the first thing I did (to save weight and improve stability) was remove the center column and screw the head directly onto the mount. Unfortunately, in this configuration the triangular shape of the AirHed base doesn't line up with the legs in a folded/packed position. Pity because it seems like a simple ask. Hopefully this will be addressed in future versions... Otherwise I like everything about it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A few observations. Some nitpicking for those who appreciate it: While I knew that this was a travel tripod, its legs are skinnier than I expected. Fully extended, it feels very solid as far as bearing weight straight down, but any twisting motion, as would be created from adjusting a ballhead left or right, creates a pretty noticeable jiggle?similar to what you would typically experience when shooting with the center column up. Collapsing the thin bottom legs helps, but leaves you with a tough working height. Another thing I noticed was the center column twist lock has a couple of centimeters of give while rotating before it starts unlocking the actual column. I can't tell if this was intentional or not, but I would prefer to have immediate tension adjustment like the leg locks do. I also wish the center column didn't spin. The leg twists feel nice. The leg angle adjusters are tight but not too tight. The airhed neo is surprisingly solid and seems to work perfectly with my peakdesign plates. (though, the knobs inevitably end up sticking out in the wrong place when I'm folding the legs up). Also, going to a completely vertical orientation for my setup is only possible by having the bubble level side facing down due to the ball head knob sticking out slightly too far and stopping the vertical angle at around 80 degrees. Not a huge deal, but with my setup, it makes it so I can only do vertical or orientation with my camera turned to the right. I like the tool that comes with this kit and actually can see myself using it. It Nitpicking aside, this feels like a very well-built pair of sticks that will definitely serve you well while working with a slimmed down kit on location somewhere. Summary: Great in a run & gun/travel situation, and in the studio it'll get you by in a pinch, but you'll probably want something more substantial for your daily driver. I don't think 3 legged thing would disagree with that statement, though. That's why they've got beefier models.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice tripod for the $ I'm happy with this tripod and the cost. It will support a large fixed lens (400 2.8) but the ball head will not hold and slips if shooting at high angle.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good tripod but don't lose the feet. The Travis is a nice tripod, compact and light. However, make sure that your feet are tight. I didn't check mine and lost two at Gullfoss Falls in Iceland. The feet were not tightened by the factory. I think I'll use Loctite on them in the future.
