The Tripod that Won the West

Using binoculars or a spotting scope without a tripod in 2018 is as questionable as muzzle-loading a rifle was after 1873. You can get the job done, but once you’ve felt the difference, it’s almost impossible to go back.

No matter how steady you think your hands are, nothing beats the view from a rock-solid platform. The Outdoorsmans tripod is the only one built specifically for the demands of western hunting and has been put to the test all over the world.

Become a one-man glassing army with the most hardcore tripod on the market.

What a set up.

Was asked to write a review of my recent purchase… even though there was a glitch in their system and I actually didn’t order anything new, I have a short tripod/pan head/bino adapter from years back. This system has been s#%t kicked and is bomber. Glad I spent the money. My only regret is they didn’t have the new stuff in production back then. Lol.

Guides Best Compact Tripod

My first Outdoorsmans' Compact Tripod last me ten adventurous years! Ten years of backpack guiding, horse crews, and personal hunts- this tripod was sturdy enough to handle high winds, temperatures and various uneven landscapes. It's multi-length adjustable legs, and durable build keep any model of scope from wavering. If you are looking for one scope that can work for you, this is it.

Awesome glassing tripod!

I have glassed with binos from a cheaper tripod and when I bought the outdoorsman compact with the pan head I was blown away as to how much better it was. Super solid and when you lock the pan head there is no movement at all. I think this will be the last tripod I will ever buy!
