Kestrel Monopod Glassing System

5 items left

Quick to set up. Lightweight. Highly stowable. Bomber construction. The Kestrel® Monopod mimics the natural way you scan with binoculars, enabling easy vertical and horizontal movement on a stable platform while removing the weight of the binoculars. With Kestrel® Monopod you can glass in more places, more often, and in more scenarios where tripods fall short.

The Kestrel® Monopod was born of the desire to outperform tripods, shed weight and shrink pack volume on backcountry hunting trips. While planning an archery elk hunt in the summer of 2018, we budgeted pack weight and made hard decisions about what gear goes and what stays in the garage. When wedging our tripods into loaded packs, we realized there had to be a lighter, more space efficient way to effectively glass on long pack trips. We set ourselves to the goal of designing a lightweight, compact system that could replace a tripod for backcountry hunting.

  • Only weighs 6oz.
  • Easy one-handed set-up.
  • Binoculars mount in seconds.
  • Quick locking feature to hold binos in place.
  • Fits most binoculars.

All I need

I had my Kestrel since they came out - cool to see them at S&S. It’s all I carry into the back country with 12x binos and i can see really well. I like moving quick, not having to get a tripod out, and the weightless up and down adjustment is cool
