3 Legged Thing Travis Aluminum Travel Tripod with AirHed Neo Ball Head (Black)
From 3 Legged Thing's Founder & CEO, Danny Lenihan: For many years we have been known as the protagonists of natural pantones on our products, but increasing demand from our network of dealers and customers around the world has lead us to create a new black version, but with a difference. The Matte-Black powder coating is tactile and beautifully finished, and complemented by the anodised elements of copper and metallic slate.

To the back of beyond..
Travis is our very first general-use tripod. Designed to be compact enough to carry, but stable enough for even the heaviest loads, Travis bridges the gap between travel tripods and big, professional systems. Durable, light, strong and versatile, Travis really is the go-to tripod for every day use.
Hardier than a Rock Drummer
Travis is a solid tripod, with powder-coated furniture for durability and precision engineered mechanisms for smooth, easy use.
Most entry-level tripods lack the features of their professional counterparts, but with Travis you get many of the features of our pro range, including the patented Tri-mount plate, detachable monopod leg and interchangeable footwear for use on any terrain.
Pushing the boundaries of design
Travis is packed with small details that are designed to enable photographers to be more creative with tripods. With modular functionality and exquisite craftsmanship, Travis really is the first choice of tripod for most.
Big AND Small
Travis, whilst not a travel tripod, is still compact tripod, folding up to just 45cm / 17.7", making him a sturdy alternative to traditional travellers.
Travis, like all 3 Legged Thing tripods, comes with a detachable monopod leg that can also be used as a microphone or camera boom.
Max Load to Weight Ratio of 11:1
Travis is capable of supporting loads up to 11 times his weight. With a 18kg payload, Travis is one of the strongest tripods in this class.
3 Legged Thing's unique Bubble Grip system provides better leverage and greater rigidity, with a smooth, easy to use mechanism.
Shaping The Future
Our patented Tri-Mount plate offers three hollowed spurs for accessory attachments and enables Travis to fold up, even when the column is detached.
A Range of Footwear
Travis has detachable rubber Bootz, which can be replaced with any of our foot accessories, for maximum stability on any terrain.
