Ardea AL

Elevate your observation

The KITE OTPICS aluminum tripod ARDEA AL is a professional compact all-round tripod. It is a user- and budget friendly birdwatching tripod that is easy to travel with. Despite its small dimensions and light weight of only 1.4 kilograms, the tubes are still large enough to offer very rigid support to heavy optical instruments.

customer reviews

“Small and light”

Very practical and light, very good stability and brightness, recommended for 3 people, very good after-sales service: problem following an accidental fall, replaced free of charge through “Nature et Découvertes” the store where I bought them

“compact 8x25”

Very good binoculars, recommended by 3 friends who are very happy with them. Very good brightness, practical to always have with you given their compact size.
