This unique design folds flat so it's about an inch and half thick by four inches wide by sixteen inches long. That's with the sliding vertical support and head removed. It would fit nicely into a suitcase which is why I bought it. Unfortunately I thought the tripod was a little too unstable with a heavy 70-200mm lens with camera at 5.5 pounds. If you also buy a head, it's the same price as the A1691T which I ended up keeping as it's more stable.

Both are well made products and come with interchangeable rubber feet and spikes.

I bought the BH1 head and it has great locking levers with a great plate but no panorama. The travel angle comes with the B0 head with knobs instead of levers but has a difficult to use plate but panorama. I ended up keeping the BH1 head for the A1691T.

I was a bit worried when I got this tripod...one of it's greatest attributes is that it folds really flat and is very small, which is great for travel. Given it's size though, I thought it would be wobbly and not very usable. However, I recently used it on a commercial shoot where I didn't want to take a ton of heavy gear when traveling across county. The tripod held up! I used a heavy, L series canon 70-200 lens with a heavy 1DS Mark III body and it was rock solid! I wouldn't use it all the time, especially when I have assistants to lug my gear around, but it is fantastic for travel, and the price is definitely right.

At first I wanted a Gitzo carbon fiber or similar tripod, but though I would try this one because of the low price. It works well with a good ball head, which is not included, and can handle pro bodies with 70-200mm lenses, or similar size, well. If you open up the very thinnest parts of the legs, then you'll have some vibrations on very long exposures at long focal lengths.

Since I was doing some landscape photography, I didn't need the center column and left it out in my travels. This thing is light weight and easy to carry, especially without the center column. For its design, there are obviously limitations, but you could spend nearly 3 times as much and not get more functionality. There is a carbon fiber version of 1190T

Included is a nice padded case, spikes, and adjustment tool. It fits nicely flat in all luggage and you soon realize that a good ball head is heavy too. Be careful, in some parts of the world airport security may not allow you to take this tripod in your hand luggage.

I'll admit that I was a bit frustrated with this tripod at first. I unscrewed the tripod too loosely when trying to open it up and it came apart...it took half an hour for me to get it back together, but that was my own fault. When I unscrewed it and the sections of the legs came apart, I saw that two white plastic strips were all that were keeping the tripod's legs from falling apart and staying together...that really made me doubt the stability of the tripod, but so far, it's been pretty stable, so I think I'm worrying for nothing.

This tripod is great. I just got it today so I haven't really used it much yet, but I plan on taking it with my on my cruise in a few days. I already have it packed in my suitcase. It's light and small, perfect for traveling. I was debating between this tripod, the Benro Travel Angel, and the Slik Pro II. However, the reason I decided to go with this one was because it's flat when folded up. This makes it perfect for fitting into my suitcase with my clothes just piled on top. I don't even notice it's in the suitcase. The only thing I was a bit bummed about was that the ball head for the tripod needed to be bought separately and that meant I needed to spend an extra 60 bucks. Not fun. This tripod's also taller than I thought it would be. I'm about 5'8"- 5'9" and this tripod (with the ball head and camera mounted on) was about an inch away from my eye level. I didn't even have to use the extension that came with the tripod, which is great because that would've just been more to carry around.

I'd recommend this tripod to anyone who travels regularly. The design just makes it so much easier to carry around, whether it be a few feet or halfway across the world.

Wow, what a good tripod. It fits in to my 17 inch long carry-on bag, at first the carrying case made no sense; it however works well with the ball head on the tripod. It is heavy and sets up fast & well and is stable.
