Nest Trav­eller NT -6294AK

What’s good: Amaz­ingly rigid for a travel tripod with a 15kg max­i­mum load rat­ing.

What’s bad: Prac­ti­cally twice the car­ry­ing weight of some tripods in the group and rel­a­tively bulky.

Our verdict: It’s the best in the group, but not ideal if you want to travel light.

Benro Travel An­gel 2 A1682TB0

What’s good: Ex­cel­lent range of fea­tures, built-in mono­pod dou­bles as a walk­ing pole.

What’s bad: Doesn’t fold down as small as many of the tripods in the group.

Our verdict: A very good tripod that’s well worth the ask­ing price, but car­ry­ing size is a lit­tle large.

Man­frotto BeFree MKBFRA 4-BH

What’s good: A sen­si­ble trade-off between car­ry­ing weight and sturdy rigid­ity.

What’s bad: Max­i­mum load rat­ing and op­er­at­ing height are be­low av­er­age.

Our verdict: A good travel op­tion, and its build qual­ity makes it great value.
