Due to its unusual design, the tripod will fold down to an amazingly small size and the leg locking system has an anti-rotation aspect to it which means that the legs will not rotate annoyingly when they are being fixed into position. The plastic tap lock bushings in the legs, mean that the legs are water resistant and the dust resistant rubber grips ensure that the worst of the dust amd muck don't get into the actual tripod leg as they form a fantastic seal.
The spring hook on the base of the centre column, is ideal for hanging additional weights on, just in case the tripod is on a very uneven surface or the wether is particularly windy. The tripod legs can be folded 180 degrees inwards, to make the tripod compact and easy to carry.
