“Punks are our entry-level professional tripod systems, with many of the features of our professional range.” – 3 Legged Thing.

Described as an “a breakthrough in entry level tripods”, the Punks aluminium tripod range includes two revolutionary “aircraft-grade magensium alloy” tripods; Corey and Travis.

The 3 Legged Thing Corey Tripod, named “a world-class micro-traveler”, is 3 Legged Thing’s entry-level travel tripod. Designed with travel-photographers in mind, features include a detachable monopod segment, a unique bubble-grip system for better leverage and detachable rubber feet. These feet can be replaced with other foot accessories for maximum stability.

Corey also boasts a 14kg maximum load weight (9 times it’s own weight!) and can fold down to a tiny 34cm, making this the ultimate travel tripod.

Sitting alongside Corey in the Punks tripod range is the 3 Legged Thing Travis Tripod, dubbed “the most advanced entry-level all-round tripod system on the planet”.

Travis is designed with some of the same great features, including the detachable monopod segment and the unique bubble-grip system. And, although not a travel tripod, Travis can shrink down to a very manageable 45cm! Making for easy storage when on the road.
