Next time somebody tells you to take a hike, all you need is this walking stick and it'll take care of all your tripod needs, too. The TrekPod from TrekTech holds those binoculars steady on top of this stable mount, and while in its sturdy walking stick mode it can help you climb that mountain as well. It's made of high-strength aluminum, stainless steel and has a Portuguese cork handle. It can be used as either a tripod or a monopod, and includes light-force and heavy-force adapters for cameras and binoculars. Goes for $139.99. Now there s no excuse to be caught without a tripod.
