Most tripods are clunky, but if you’re an adventurer, you need a tripod that can easily go anywhere without weighing you down. Enter the Pakpod Adventure Tripod: this brilliantly compact, rugged, lightweight, and waterproof device stashes in your backpack and sets up in moments.
Successfully funded through a crowdsourcing campaign that generated more than $100,000, the Pakpod is one of this holiday season’s hottest gifts for photographers. It’s worth the hype, for a tripod that can stabilize in turf, sand, snow and all kinds of terrain while still managing to weigh less than one pound. It’s perfect for on-the-go photographers who love to do time-lapse, video, and underwater work while hiking and traveling. Whether you’re climbing the ruins at Angkor Wat or just trying to get the perfect selfie in front of Big Ben, the Pakpod has you covered wherever you go.
The Pakpod Adventure Tripod’s official retail price is going to be $99 when it drops, but you can order one today at the Black Friday price—which is just $69, and a huge 30 percent savings. It’s a small price to pay knowing your vacation photos will look a million times better than before, even if you can only bring your smartphone camera with you.
