BackPacker S Travel Tripod Aluminum

The MeFoto BackPacker S Aluminum Travel Tripod features a 5-section support with aluminum legs and black anodized-aluminum twist locks.

The reverse folding design allows it to be super compact for fitting inside cases or attaching to camera bags.

MeFOTO S features special anodized aluminum twist locks. These CNC machined aluminum twist locks have deep ridges for a solid grip. Each lock is anodized to give it a clean and protective finish.

You can convert the tripod into a full size monopod by combining one of the legs with the center column.

MeFOTO S Collection

MeFOTO S is available in three sizes (BackPacker S, RoadTrip S and GlobeTrotter S), five anodized finishes (Black, Titanium, Blue, Red and Green) and your choice of aluminum or carbon fiber. The dual-action ballhead uses an Arca-Swiss style quick release plate and has separate controls for pan lock and ball lock.
