For those on the go, we offer the CobraCrane Backpacker. This system is the same length at the CobraCrane I (5 feet). The difference is that this package comes as two smaller pieces allowing you to break it down for easy transport. Adding a three foot extension is possible but will reduce the camera carry weight to 4.5Lbs
