The Sirui W-2204 is a highly specified carbon fibre tripod you can take anywhere. It's one of the 'Wind & Wave' series, with 4-section legs which are sealed against water and dust - so you can happily use it in the desert or fully immersed in salt water. The leg sections feature ergonomic callar locks which need only a short turn to operate and comfortable operation with cold, wet or gloved hands. Adding extra versatility, one leg can be detached from the tripod to be used as a monopod, and can even be extended using the centre column. This two-piece column includes a short section which can be used for ground level operation. With foam grips, stability hook, spirit level, and ruuber feet which can be exchanged for the supplied stainless steel spikes, the W-2204 shows exceptional attention to detail in design and engineering.
