Peak Design Aluminum Travel Tripod Overview

Photographers looking for a beautifully designed tripod with a great strength to size and weight ratio will appreciate the Aluminum Travel Tripod from Peak Design. Architecturally inspired, and weighing only 3.4 lb, this innovative tripod reduces folded volume thanks to legs that store closer together than traditional tripods. When folded, the tripod is roughly as thick as a water bottle. Boasting impressive specs, the tripod height adjusts from 5.5 to 60", folds down to only 15.5", holds up to 20 lb, and is constructed from aluminum. For fast deployment, the five-section aluminum leg cams can be released at the same time. Ground-level shots are quickly captured by simply reversing the center column.

Epitomizing the expression less is more, is an impressive ergonomic ball head that replaces cumbersome knobs and levers with space-saving locking and adjustment rings. The rings facilitate omnidirectional movements that are locked in place with a simple twist. Crowning the ball head is a quick release system compatible with Peak Design standard plates, and most Arca-type plates. Arca-type L-brackets can be attached by removing the safety pin inside the clamp. Under the center column is a hook for attaching a stabilizing weight.

Included with the tripod are a handsome fabric storage case, a mobile mount, 2.5 and 4mm hex wrenches, and a bushing removal tool.

    Only had it for a few days

    but it already is my favourite tripod ever. I could not afford the carbon fiber one but this aluminium baby works great with my FX3 camera and its size is ideal for hiking, travelling etc.

    Great product

    I purchased a travel tripod and I’m very happy with it. It’s robust but lightweight. Excellent tripod.

    After a long research for tripods, which almost drove me crazy, I finally decided for this. I already had the PD clips and claps to hang my camera around my neck and it’s very useful to combine it with transporting methods of the tripod. The tripod itself is heavier than expected, but the design is really great, and the time you need to build it up is just crazy good. It’s definitely a product you can develop some sort of relationship with

    Best tripod I've owned

    I love my PD tripod. It's easy to use, good quality, small, sturdy, and have all the features I need/use on a tripod. I opted for the aluminum version because I can't justify spending almost another $300 bucks to save weight that is less than a lb or and have a carbon finish.

    Very pleased

    I have been on the hunt for a lightweight and sturdy tripod that fits in my backpack and I can use at eye level when extended. I finally found that tripod. The carbon fiber travel tripod meets all of my expectations. I am glad I waited until I found this.

    Fabulous!

    I bought this for the company I work with at the end of November. It saw a lot of use over December, and it was fantastic. Fast to set up, easy to use, and the controls are simple enough that I could operate it even when I couldn't see the tripod. Almost all of the testing time was done in -35C weather, and the tripod had no issues at all even with snow and ice build-up. 100% I will be buying the carbon fibre version of the tripod for my own photography.

    Compact, light weight, good looking design

    I am so happy that this tripod is so fast to setup & take-down within a minute. My carbon fibre is very light to carry around. This tripod is superb sturdy to support my new camera Nikon Z9 + Nikkor 100-400 mm lens.

    I like it very much!

    I bought this tripod two months ago. It is so compact and portable. I usually take it outdoors for ohotography.
