“STAKE OUT YOUR NEXT ADVENTURE”
Introducing the ultimate adventure tripod. Compact, lightweight, waterproof, and quick to deploy, Pakpod is more versatile than any tripod on the market today. Weighing less than a pound and constructed from the same durable stuff as bike and ski helmets, Pakpod is easily stashed in your backpack. And it’s fast. The patented locking system secures all three legs in wildly asymmetrical positions with the twist of a single knob. It’s the first tripod that lets you stake securely into grass, dirt, sand and snow. Invented by Maine-based free diving film maker Steve Underwood, Pakpod represents a significant advancement in the otherwise stagnant world of tripods and mounts.
We’ve mounted Pakpod on just about everything – trees, fences, signposts, ceiling fans, car hoods, kayaks, rock walls, bicycles, hammocks, baby swings, sailboat masts, white water rafts and more. We’ve staked it into sand dunes, grassy fields, river bottoms and the ocean floor. In fact, we’ve stopped testing its mountability because the options were kind of endless.
“I searched for years for a tripod that could be anchored, tied, staked and rigged to things quickly and securely. I couldn’t find one, so I built it myself.” – Steve Underwood, Pakpod Inventor
