High Country™ Tripod

New for 2017. Smaller, lighter, and more compact than our Pro GT, the High Country™ is designed for hunting at altitudes where every ounce counts. The variable leg angles and flip lever leg locks makes set-up a snap.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect backpack tripod I have used this on mule deer backpack hunts and it has been perfect. For the hunter on a budget, who doesn't need all the bells and whistles of the high end stuff, this should be the go to. For the money I saved on this tripod, I was able to go up a class with my binos. This little tripod tucks in perfectly with my trekking poles on the pack in, and can be deployed super quick once I have found my spot for the day. A must have add-on is the bino adapter, which makes getting your glass up and on target.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Tripod I purchased this tripod for yearly West Texas Muley/Aoudad hunts and Colorado Muley/Elk hunts. Both require extensive glassing. I couldn't be happier with the quality of this tripod. The ball head is very easy to use and adjust. Clamp it down tight while hiking and the scope stays put. Easily adjust the tightness while glassing to allow smooth rotation and movement without being too loose. I also purchased the Vortex Diamondback 20-60x60 Angled Spotting Scope. Excellent combination.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Affordable, light, sturdy. I don't hunt without this anymore. I've spotted more bedded animals with binos and a spotter off this tripod this year than when I used to hunt without it. I keep my bino adapter attached, then swap to my 33x Razor spotter when needed(swaps fast with quick release plate). Total day trip pack weight still at about 22lbs with the tripod and spotter, very manageable. Well worth it's weight if you're hunting big country, in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Awesome! Great! I purchased this last week, along with the Vortex Diamondback 20-60x60. Truly a great combination. The High Country Tripod is lightweight, super easy to set up and configure, and is a bargain at this price point. I haven't owned it long enough to pack in with me yet in the backcountry, but at the weight of this tripod, it will be a dream come true.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and Lightweight I picked this model up for a Razor HAD with 65mm objective lens. It's light, folds down to a reasonable size and steadies the scope really well. I take it hunting and hiking in the back country, so the size and weight are very important to me and this tripod exceeds my needs.

Can I use this tripod with the KAIBAB® HD BINOCULARS 20x56?

Asked by: Mike67
The High Country Tripod will work with the Kaibab binoculars but it will most likely be too short to use when standing.

It says it adjust to 52” high. Will it go higher by extending the center piece a scope sirs on and can I work my scope for bird watching with the supplied head? I have a Gt pro but I am trying to lighten my load. 

Asked by: Steve
The 52" height is including the center column.

It says on the Tripod Kits screen that it folds down to 15" but then you click on the High Country Tripod and it says Folded Height 21". I just got mine and it measures closer to 21". When/how does it fold down to 15" as advertised?

Asked by: duyl
That 15 inches is referring to the height of the tripod when the legs are splayed out in the lowest useable position.

Will my crossfire binoculars fit on this tripod as is or do I need some kind of adapter. ?

Asked by: Darren
You would need an adapter like our Binocular Tripod Adapter or our Uni-Daptor.

I have the vortex binocular tripod adapter. What do I need to attach my adapter to this tripod? A quick release plate? If so how do I attach it to my adapter?

Asked by: Levi Crosby
The Binocular Tripod Adapter will attach to the quick release plate that is included with the tripod.

Will this tripod support a rifle if I have the proper bracket?

Asked by: Ryguy
The High Country Tripod has a maximum weight of 5 lbs, so I would not recommend using it as a rifle rest. Our Pro GT would be the best option in our line for a rifle rest.

Why isn't this available with a pan head? Exactly what I want but missing something so obvious that I won't buy it without it. Help please.....

Asked by: RjlInAK
We have two light weight tripods available, one with a ball head and the other with a pan head. If you are looking for a pan head, our Summit SS-P would be the ticket, or you can swap the head out on your High Country with a different head you like better.
