The LEKI Makalu AS photo is the answer to many nature photographers’ prayers. Starting with their time-tested Makalu poles, LEKI has added integrated camera mounts underneath the grips of their original set of poles. No longer will you have to lug around your camera mounting equipment while on a hike or long trek. Simply unscrew the ErgoSoft grip and you are ready to start shooting. The whole process takes less than 30 seconds. Both poles in the pair have photo mounts so your friends aren't left out. Besides the photo mount, The LEKI Makalu is a solid performing set of poles that can be used on hardcore expeditions or on your local hill. Other features include the Triple Spring Antishock System, Automatic Adjustment Wrist Straps, and 55mm baskets.

Good quality sturdy pole with interesting photomount option. No need to lug along tripod with this option. One thing though prefer the Cork handles over the rubber ones.
