I own this tripod. My previous travel tripod, which I still own and use, is the Gitzo 1550. In contrast, the PD is “chunkier” yet light. It is more compact than the Gitzo when folded because of the unique leg design. The built-in iPhone holder is a nice touch too.
My only issue is with the small plastic clip as the top of the tripod leg where it attaches with a pin to the tripod head. I have had two of these break, once when the tripod fell over (without a camera on it, thank God) and once inside the travel case when it fell out of my trunk. Peak Design replaced both time by sending me a whole leg. It was an easy fix, but left me with concerns about the durability of the tripod.
PD should make this part out of metal in the future.
