A sturdy metal folding sketching easel which offers added stability when outdoor sketching. The telescopic legs and adjustable canvas grip allow for a varied range of working positions and heights.
Over the years I had problems with the arm that tightens the head. Often I just could not move it, and it hurt my hand. Why did they not make it a bit longer?
Anyway I solved the problem by fitting an extra smooth faced washer between the handle and mechanism, also be carefull hanging a water bucket to the end, the weight causes it to drop, that problem in the design could have been so easily fixed by having locating holes in the handle mechanism, for a locating pin to drop in.

I spent a good while searching for a sturdy, but lightweight, field easel. This is both light and compact. Great product - recommend it to anyone in doubt. Barry P (Chatham, Kent) on 10 Nov 2008
Although a easel carrying a good name. I had trouble with the head locking lever, which used to jam. On trying to release this, one of the leg hinges broke. G.Hards (Dewsbury) on 13 Mar 2008
