The Resurrection of Brian

Our iconic, hero travel tripod, Brian is back. He's been given an extensive facelift and now joins our Punks range of tripods. Thoroughly refined and improved, Punks Brian is a true travel tripod - lightweight for portability at only 1.45 kg / 3.0 lb, and compact for transportation, folding to just 41 cm / 16.5 ". Brian's travel pedigree does not forsake any capability as his 2-section column and 5 leg sections offer ultimate versatility, as well as a maximum height of 1.87 m / 74 ".

The brand new Punks Brian will be unveiled at The Photography Show, which takes place at the NEC, Birmingham from 17-20th March 2018, and can be viewed at 3 Legged Thing’s exhibition stand no E71 throughout the show. Brian is available to pre-order from 3 Legged Thing's website now, and from dealers around the world.

Designed and engineered in Stagsden, England, Punks Brian is made from eight layers of 100% pure pre-preg carbon fibre, and includes all the premium features users expect from 3 Legged Thing tripods. These include a detachable monopod leg; patented Tri-mount plate which allows the attachment of accessories; removable and reversible centre column; ultra-low-level shooting using the widest 80 ̊ leg angle; and ergonomic, water-dispersing bubble-grips which provide better leverage, even in damp conditions. 

As with all 3 Legged Thing tripods, Brian includes modular functionality, enabling users to remove, attach and reconfigure elements of the tripod allowing a multitude of uses. This includes the removable centre column which allows use of the tripod as low as 11 cm / 4.3”, and can also be added to the detachable monopod leg to create an ultra-tall monopod that extends to 1.92 m / 75.5”. 

Available in two colourways – grey and blue with copper accents; and matte black with accents of British Racing Green - Punks Brian additionally includes an AirHed Neo ballhead which incorporates two spirit levels; a tough nylon drawstring carry bag; and rubber Bootz footwear which grip a variety of surfaces.
