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 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 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 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!

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 1 out of 5 by from Garbage Biggest waste of $100, ever. Pretty embarrassing as a guide when your clients show up with a more stable tripod than yours. I thought I could trust the Vortex tripods would be as good as their glass. Shame on me for not doing more experimenting with the tripod in store. Shaky and unstable, slop in all the moving parts makes it almost impossible to keep a deer in focus at maximum zoom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favorite pieces of equipment Finally spent the money on a great spotting scope and it was worth every penny
