Hands-on: Peak design everyday phone case, front bike outdoor mount and mini tripod

A few weeks ago, while walking into a Sea Otter Classic event, I heard someone yell at me… “Hey, I love my camera stand!” I looked up and saw that the person shouting was from the Pick Design booth. They were on my must-cover list so I went to check out what’s cool or new.

Back in October of 2020, we covered Peak Design’s Kickstarter campaign for their mobile ecosystem. But, a few years passed, and the products were a little more refined and used some time in the real world. Plus I was personally impressed with the products they gave me, and I thought you would be too.

I’m not going to delve into these because Corey did a really great job doing it in the post in 2020. No, I thought I’d just talk to you about the specs, price ranges and a few small details about my three favorite products that were shown to me:

Portable Tripod

The portable tripod seems to be a very stable and impressively compact tripod. The three full aluminum legs look and feel really sturdy, are fully articulated, have vibration/anti-slip rubber feet, and lay really flat to fit in your pocket. It uses the same SlimLink magnetic locking system as other products making your phone attachment extremely secure. The small ball head was designed by the tripod engineers at Peak Design to ensure an ultra-smooth feel.
