OP/TECH USA’s Tripod Sleeves are a convenient way to protect a tripod’s legs from the elements when in rough outdoor conditions. Keeping debris from getting clogged in the internal working mechanisms of your tripod prolongs the life of your tripod and ensures that it continues to operate smoothly. Tripod Sleeves are ideal for use at the beach, on river banks, in the snow, in a muddy swamp or even in desert conditions where blowing sand and grit can damage the delicate mechanisms on a tripod. Why risk missing a great bird because you don’t want to get your tripod in the middle of the action? Tripod Sleeves are compact and easy to store in a pocket or camera bag so there’s no reason to leave them behind.
The Tripod Sleeves can remain on the legs as the tripod’s mechanisms remain visible and operable through the plastic. The sleeves will collapse along with the tripod leg. They’re also great for monopods. When shooting in high-humidity conditions where condensation could possibly enter the sleeves, it’s good to remove them to dry them out once you are finished so they are ready to go for the next outing.
The Tripod Sleeves are made of durable clear plastic and are easy to apply. Their generous size covers up to 46″ (116.8 cm) of the leg’s length and up to 2¾” (7cm) in diameter. Simply pull them over the leg and tighten them snugly with the built-in drawstring and barrel lock. The reinforced bottoms offer added protection when in use among rocks and sand. Be sure to add them to your “must-have” gear when preparing for your birding trip.
