Product Testimonial: I have traveled the world and my Gitzo tripods go everywhere I do. There are trips I don't use them, but those trips are getting fewer as my own work evolves and the importance of getting the right shot outweighs the desire to travel light. I've had a Gitzo Basalt in my bag for every trip and it's never failed. My newest tripod, the Ocean Traveler is even smaller and more resistant to the elements and tough conditions I find myself in.
