If you haven't seen Trek-Tech's line, check them out!
I met the guys at Trails Fest here in Seattle this summer (they were next to my booth) but it wasn't till a couple weeks ago as a birthday gift I got my husband an order.
I got him the Trek Pod II (it comes with all the mounts needed) and the side mount kit. They were extra cool and threw in the travel case since we had met at the show.
Anyhoo, Kirk used it when we were in Glacier last week. We met another guy up at Logans Pass with one also, who loved his as well.
It works as both a monopod, hiking staff and a tripod. The mounts are pretty cool-they work with magnets, and yet, they hold very well.
