Carrying trekking poles has become standard practice among backcountry and mountain hunters. They allow you to safely carry more weight, and hike further with less wear on your joints. And now they let you do even more.
The 3rd Leg is intended to be used with the Quick-Clip and Quick-StiX (Sold Separately) to create a lightweight but stable tripod for glassing/filming. Utilizing your trekking poles as two thirds of a tripod; the 3rd Leg, at minimal weight, adds the last 3rd to convert gear you already carry into a tripod.

Really liked this for glassing with my son on his first deer hunt. This, combined with the Nighthawk Ultralight Pan Head, were a perfect complement to each other.
The quick stix are really easy to use and set up as well as the thrid leg and quick clip it helped cut weight in my pack and as well as giving a stable tripod to glass from!
What a great product to help reduce the weight of gear to carry in the field. Easy to use and set up and makes a very stable shooting platform. I highly recommend!!
I have had a set of quick sticks for a while now and love the versatility and weight savings of being able to use them as a bipod. Recently I picked up the picatinny Mount and third leg and love it! I had been carrying a 5lb tripod for my spotter and after my morning hunt and abut 5 miles of walking last fall I just left both the spotter and tripod in the truck for the rest of the season. This leg weighs so little it’s not even noticeable in a pack and it turns my trekking poles into a surprisingly sturdy tripod. I added a miniature ball head and arca clamp to the third leg and I couldn’t be more pleased. I don’t think I’ll ever even use my expensive tripod again unless I’m at the range or I’m not going far from the truck.
With some getting used to this set-up is extremely useful in the back country. The weight savings alone are worth it, and the build quality gives me the confidence I’ll be using them for many seasons to come.
