The ProAngel Aluminum Series 3 Monopod from Benro is small lightweight pole that travels well because of its collapsed length. The monopod will fit in most camera bags or backpacks and will fold down to 13.4".
Opening and extending the 6 sections to a full height of 58.1" is simple because of the single leg lock, which controls every section of the ProAngel at the same time. With a simple half turn, to open and close, you can have any desired height between. Moreover, the aluminum pole extends and collapses faster than most traditional monopods.
With a weight capacity of 22 lb, and a standard 1/4"-20 male thread, the monopod can accommodate most mirror-less and DSLR cameras. In addition, a silicone hand grip makes the pole comfortable to hold or hang from your wrist with the included lanyard.
