Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $14.99

Summary

A portable lightweight tripod that folds up small enough to toss in a coat pocket and versatile enough to position a camera in almost any angle. This tripod works great for getting that group shot on a summit without having to balance the camera on a rock.

Pros

  • Portable
  • Lightweight
  • Versatile
  • Universal camera mount

Cons

  • Can be difficult to mount on smaller diameters

Have you ever tried to get that group shot with everyone after a long hike or after reaching the summit of a mountain and can't because you are not able to balance the camera in the right position? I bought this tripod almost solely for that reason. This mini tripod mounts to any camera with a universal mount and works great with point and shoot cameras. 

The product folds down to about 1 x 4 inches and tucks easily into a coat or pack pocket.

When needed, the legs can be folded out for setting on a rock, log or on the ground. The legs have vinyl feet which are pretty grippy and keep them from sliding.

The tripod also has a "rip and stick" strapping that allow it to be mounted on a branch or a trekking pole.  However, it does take some effort to get the tripod mounted on smaller diameter items.
