Designed and tested in Canada under our harshest conditions. When we list the features we have, we also have to list the features we don't. We have redesigned this tripod from the ground up to make sure it has everything you need for nature photography, especially suited for Jobu Design gimbal head use. This tripod incorporates the strong and lightweight characteristics of the Jobu Design line and allows for versatile use at a wide variety of levels, whether it be flat to the ground, 5 feet up, and anything in between. If you have a Jobu Design gimbal head, the Algonquin tripod is it's perfect partner. The stainless steel spike feet allow for ease of use in snowy/icy outdoor conditions, and can simply be covered with the included rubber caps at any time. The angles of the tripod can be adjusted, allowing for a wide array of positions. The Algonquin tripod can be used almost flat to the ground, allowing for a wide range of mounting levels.
