This was exactly what I was looking for in a back country tripod. I tend to return back to home base every day while hunting in the back country and as such try to travel as light as possible assuming there will be days I am packing out meat as well. This is light weight, packs out of the way and yet offers a stable platform for glassing, whether it be binos or a spotting scope. Seems strong enough but I would still be careful with it. That tends to be how lightweight gear works. You give up some weight but can't treat it like a punching bag. Sadly it is not in season here yet so it has only been tried out in the field on a day hike and glassing the hills for the sake of trying it out, but really there is no difference. That's hunting less the opportunity to bring home game. If you are gear weight conscious and take care of your stuff and want some value you've found it!

I just returned from my 7-day whitetail hunt in AZ and spent hours glassing with my 4 lb Leicas on this thing - and it is awesome. If you hunt in the back country, this tripod is a must if you are looking to shed weight in your pack. Its quality is bullet-proof and so far out-performs its competitors for the money that it is ridiculous. My only complaint is the head - there is no handle and for my type of glassing, this is essential. A buddy of mine machined a super-lightweight one for me and that made this tripod near-perfect.

I purchased this tripod to support a Nomad spotting scope for late season Mule Deer hunt. At six inches and under two pounds this tripod easily fit into my backpack and was hardly noticed while hiking up and down thousands of feet of elevation each day. In typical sitting against a bush or rock spotting, the Summit SS is rock solid. When fully extended in moderate to heavy wind there is movement, but that is not what I purchased this unit for. Mechanicals were bullet proof in dust/ mud/ snow for over a week of heavy use.
