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 Light weight durable and packable Great product price and weight! I have a 60mm Sworvoski and when I hike into the back country this goes with me reduced weight size and still functional for what I need!

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.

Can a different mounting head be purchased with this tripod, specifically one similar to the tripods with handles?

Asked by: Joel
We do not offer any different heads, however you can replace the head with another that you like.

Can I "lock in" my Vortex Diamondback spotting scope on target with this tripod? I would like to shoot down range and look thru spotting scope without having to readjust tripod back to target.

Asked by: Hunter
Yes, the ball head can be locked into place once you are on target.

Even though the high country tripod's description states it goes to an height of 52.3" does this measurement include the center column height adjusted to the max?

Asked by: Archeryguy
Yes, it will include the center column extended.

What is the spring loaded hook at the bottom of the mast for? 

Asked by: Jomatt
The hook is designed to hang a bag or something similar to add stability to the tripod.

How short does the HC-2 actually go? Do the legs overextend like the Summit SS so the tripod will go really short? Also does the "mast" have a removable section on the bottom to assist in allowing the tripod to go lower?
Asked by: Browning28
The HC-2 will go down to 15" in height and does not have a split center column. The "mast" does not come apart.

WHAT BINOCULARS DO YOU OFFER THAT CAN BE ATTACHED TO ONE OF YOUR TRIPODS? I CURRENTLY OWN A VIPER R/T 8X AND A VULTURE HD 8X. CAN EITHER OF THESE MODELS BE CONFIGURED WITH A TRIPOD?
Asked by: KEITH
Both of those binos can be used with a tripod if you use one of our tripod adapters. The majority of our binoculars are tripod compatible as the logo badge on the hinge will unscrew and reveal where the adapter connects.
