The Ocean Traveler is the world’s first stainless steel tripod and the world’s first tripod developed specifically to challenge extreme climates and adverse elements. The design and manufacturing technology is derived from the exclusive Limited Edition 90th Anniversary Titanium Traveler.

The Ocean Traveler combines new features expressly developed for difficult environments, rich in salty water, sand, mud and high humidity levels with the compactness of the Traveler family. This unique combination makes the Ocean Traveler the ideal travelling companion for photographers who operate in these climates and conditions.

Ocean Traveler castings are made of uncoated stainless steel and manufactured with a unique process to guarantee high precision and ultra thin components. A special surface treatment, normally used for surgical equipment, completely closes any porosity at microscopic level ensuring to eliminate any anchoring point for corroding agents. The beautiful and revolutionary design brings a new higher quality standard in the market.
