As a professional camera man in the hunting industry I have used many tri -pods over the years.  When I was introduced to the Ridgeview by Vortex, I was not only impressed with the height I could achieve but also very happy with the light weight, an the ease of use.  The tri pod is very low to the ground for certain scenes, but I can make it as tall as you could ever want by extending all the legs.  The ball head is nice and fluid and easy to use.  I now have 3 of these and they go with every camera we run.  Thanks Vortex for making a truly affordable, lightweight and versatile tri pod!

This tripod may be the perfect tripod for you or a horrible choice. I was inexperienced with tripods when I made my purchase and it ended up being a horrible purchase for me. That has nothing to do with the tripod and everything to do with my needs and use of a tripod. I am putting a Vortex Razor HD x65 spotting scope on this tripod and I find that's not a good fit. The ball joint is either locked in so tight it's worthless as a ball joint or it cannot support the weight of the optic. For a lighter optic or camera, this is probably a fantastic choice. The quality is very good, the fit and finish is excellent, I definitely recommend it, but only if it fits your needs.

Constantly having to adjust the lower legs

By

Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Ridgeview Tripod - Black:

Bought this for my hunts last year had problems with the lower legs collapsing. Tightening them made no difference. Finished my hunt and sent them back. Got them back unwrapped them and still the same problem.

Not tough enough for every day use

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Ridgeview Tripod - Black:

I've had my ridgeview for 3 years now. overall the tripod itself is just fine for what you pay for. My only complaint is with the small handle that looosens and tightens the head, the screw will inevitably fall out during the middle of a hunt, rendering the whole tripod completely useless. I've gone through 3 handles in my 3 years. Even red loctite doesn't seem to help.

Very solid

Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Ridgeview Tripod - Black:

To be honest I don't have a lot of experience with tripods but when I mustered up the money for a diamondback spotting scope I figured I might as well outfit it with a nice bipod. I don't have anything to compare it to but this thing is solid. No complaints.

Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Ridgeview Tripod - Black:

This is the perfect tripod for my Razor HD 11-33x50 when packing in the cascades of Washington. I don't recommend it for larger scopes but it's great for binos too!

sized just right

By 

from Monroe, UT, USA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Ridgeview Tripod - Black:

It really is the perfect size for my hunting. only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is I want the impossible. I'd like a stout tripod that was very light and folds down small. this thing really works perfect for me.

Great product, perfect for taller people

By

Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Ridgeview Tripod - Black:

I recently puchased the ridgeview tripod kit for my upcoming hunt. Very pleased with the quality of the product for the price. Im 6'4" i mainly bought these because of how tall they are. Once you purchase the vortex bino adapter i can see through my viper hd at max height standing up, and if you mount your viper spotting scope to it, its also very comfortable.

Great for the Money

By

Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Ridgeview Tripod - Black:

I have been using this tripod for about a year now and it has been great. It is light enough that I don't have to worry about packing it around all day but yet strong enough that I don't have to worry about my spotting scope tipping over either. The legs are easy to expand and they different position settings on the legs help to make sure you get a stable base.
The ball head is very easy to use and makes finding and tracking your target very easy. The only problem that I have had with it is the screw that holds the release for the ball swivel has fallen out a couple times. Other then that it has preformed great every time I have used it. If you do get the legs extended all the way out and the center post adjusted all the way up it can get a little wobbly with a bigger spotting scope on it. When I have had this problem I just hook my backpack to the little hock on the bottom of the center post and it works great. Over all this is a great tripod for the money.
