New for 2017. Smaller, lighter, and more compact than our Pro GT, the High Country™ is designed for hunting at altitudes where every ounce counts. The variable leg angles and flip lever leg locks makes set-up a snap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Tripod I purchased this tripod for yearly West Texas Muley/Aoudad hunts and Colorado Muley/Elk hunts. Both require extensive glassing. I couldn't be happier with the quality of this tripod. The ball head is very easy to use and adjust. Clamp it down tight while hiking and the scope stays put. Easily adjust the tightness while glassing to allow smooth rotation and movement without being too loose. I also purchased the Vortex Diamondback 20-60x60 Angled Spotting Scope. Excellent combination.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect backpack tripod I have used this on mule deer backpack hunts and it has been perfect. For the hunter on a budget, who doesn't need all the bells and whistles of the high end stuff, this should be the go to. For the money I saved on this tripod, I was able to go up a class with my binos. This little tripod tucks in perfectly with my trekking poles on the pack in, and can be deployed super quick once I have found my spot for the day. A must have add-on is the bino adapter, which makes getting your glass up and on target.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Affordable, light, sturdy. I don't hunt without this anymore. I've spotted more bedded animals with binos and a spotter off this tripod this year than when I used to hunt without it. I keep my bino adapter attached, then swap to my 33x Razor spotter when needed(swaps fast with quick release plate). Total day trip pack weight still at about 22lbs with the tripod and spotter, very manageable. Well worth it's weight if you're hunting big country, in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight durable and packable Great product price and weight! I have a 60mm Sworvoski and when I hike into the back country this goes with me reduced weight size and still functional for what I need!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy on the Back Been carrying these online packs into coues Deer Country make a great stable platform for my Vortex Optics Very light-weight and durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Awesome! Great! I purchased this last week, along with the Vortex Diamondback 20-60x60. Truly a great combination. The High Country Tripod is lightweight, super easy to set up and configure, and is a bargain at this price point. I haven't owned it long enough to pack in with me yet in the backcountry, but at the weight of this tripod, it will be a dream come true.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage Biggest waste of 0, ever. Pretty embarrassing as a guide when your clients show up with a more stable tripod than yours. I thought I could trust the Vortex tripods would be as good as their glass. Shame on me for not doing more experimenting with the tripod in store. Shaky and unstable, slop in all the moving parts makes it almost impossible to keep a deer in focus at maximum zoom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favorite pieces of equipment Finally spent the money on a great spotting scope and it was worth every penny

Will this tripod work with Vortex diamondback 10x42?

Asked by: Hayden M.
Thanks for the question! Yes, you would just need to get an adapter to mount it on your tripod!

The 1/4x20 thread on the plate is too small for Swarovski STM65 scope. Do you sell an insert I can use with Swarovski or a different plate/bolt?

Asked by: Johnny Cash
Please Call our customer Care team and ask for a 1/4 x 20 to 3/8 adapter ring and they will get you taken care of. Their number is 800-426-0048 Ext. 6.

What size threads are under the ball head? I have a different pan head I would like to use at times, and would like to know if it fits.

Asked by: Morty
The head on that tripod is not removable, so you would be unable to use a different pan head on it.

Do you recommend using this when standing with a Razor HD 50mm scope attached? Excited about the weight reduction, wondering how stable it will be when fully extended.

Asked by: Dani C
Using the High Country Tripod with a Razor HD 50mm Spotting Scope is recommended. You should not run into any stability issues when fully extended.

What is the warranty on these … I bought a High Country last year (worked good for hunting last fall) and I took it out last week and a pin has fallen out on one of the leg tighteners. No good without it. Can I get a new pin or something to fix it?

Asked by: BatesIdaho
It has the VIP warranty which is lifetime, and no fault. Contact our customer care team at 800-426-0048 Ext. 6 and they will get you taken care of.

Can I use this tripod with the KAIBAB® HD BINOCULARS 20x56?

Asked by: Mike67
The High Country Tripod will work with the Kaibab binoculars but it will most likely be too short to use when standing.
