TUCSON, AZ /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Now available for well under $10, the ingenious PakPod Packable Tripod has earned the ‘Made the Grade’ status from Investment Grade Gear. This, after nearly 10 years of field testing in snow, sand, and saltwater environments.

According to Peter Reese, lead evaluator, ‘This system works even better when accompanied by innovative attachment ideas including bungie cords, straps, and deck mounts on watercraft.’

The ability to plant, balance, cantilever and reach by hand with this durable, lightweight tripod makes it ideal for year-around, international adventure travel and photography. When secured well, PakPod creates a stabile platform for video as well.
