About the 3 Legged Thing X5

The 3 Legged Thing X5 Frank Evolution 2 Carbon Fiber Tripod is a stylish and compact travel tripod, the most stable in 3LT's 29mm Ultra Pro range of carbon fiber tripods. The system extends from a minimum height of 5.9" to a maximum height of 66.33". Folded down to 22", the X5 Frank is a versatile professional camera support system that fits in most airline carry-on bags. The X5 Frank's legs are composed of 3LT's Stealth carbon fiber for superbly lightweight strength - the tripod system weighs just 3.3 lb and supports up to 26.45 lb, to accommodate any DSLR with most lenses.

One of the tripod legs unscrews to become a monopod. The center column is both removable and reversible to accommodate shooting from the lowest of low angles. Leg angles can be set at three different positions; at their widest and with the column removed, the camera plate sits only 5.9" from the ground.
