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.

Uniquely gifted

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.

Detachable Monopod

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 23:1

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.


Bubble Grips

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.
