Leupold & Stevens is an American owned and operated, fifth generation company that designs, manufactures, assembles the finest optics for the past 100 years. No wonder those in the know reach for Leupold optics for their firearms. They offer clear glass, impeccable quality control, and rugged durability, which happens to be their driving principle... "We solemnly promise never to let down on quality, the customer is entitled to a square deal."- Markus Friedrich Fred Leupold
Tripods can be awkward to carry into the field, yet trekking poles don't have the utility of a tripod. Enter Leupold's Trek Pod II.
Use it as a height-adjustable trekking pole, and when needed, three legs flair out, making it a free-standing optics mount. Where the tripod meets the pole, there's a pivot that adjusts to uneven terrain. At the top is a powerful, magnetic optics mount, and you get two additional magnets which you can attach to any optics with threaded mounts. It's so secure, you can still walk with your spotting scope or camera still attached to the Trek Pod II. Lightweight, with a dark-brown anodized finish, it's rugged enough to use anywhere.
