GOAL Zero™ Boulder™ Solar Panel Tripod
Sturdy and Well Designed
I had to wait a long time for the tripod supply to catch up with demand but am happy I waited. It provides a convenient and stable platform for my solar panels, which I can now move from storage to optimal solar collection locations across my property in relatively short order. I like the web restraints for the tripod legs, too, affording me a range of height adjustments. The panel support structure using a combination of quick-setting clips and a rigid detachable "backbone" support is ingenious.

Strap snaps don't close & hold.
I had 4 Boulder 30s mounted on this tripod for 4 months and today I had a blow down caused by strap bands around the legs that don't hold together. One leg was severely bent at the bottom. Real attention needs to be paid to the nylon strap buckles ! I'm out a tripod now for this array.

Bolder 30 Tripod
I had read several comments from other users who had purchased the tripod and were not very satisfied. Many of them said the tripod was difficult to assemble. I was happy that this was not the case with my purchase. I assembled it and everything worked well. The only problem I encountered was a bad buckle on a strap. I've notified customer service and hopefully they'll send me a replacement.

Amazing product with 3 adjustable legs and adjustable panel base for aiming in any direction needed. Can easily be readjusted during the day for more direct sun exposure. Comes with straps that can be used to carry this while hiking, riding or whatever.
