Patent Pending
The Pocket Jib Traveler is Kessler's newest and most compact Pocket Jib designed for shooters that require an ultra-portable jib solution. The Pocket Jib Traveler is 27 inches in length when collapsed and has a circular travel distance of 72 inches when fully extended. It surpasses other ultra-portable jibs through is unique design and light footprint, providing shooters with the perfect travel companion as they trek through extreme environments to capture the perfect shot.

Compact & Portable

The Pocket Jib Traveler is completely self contained and does not need to be taken apart for travel unlike most similar sized jibs. It also features drag control & locks, a rare feature in the ultra-portable jib category.

Quick Camera Mounting

A center-mounted camera platform makes camera mounting more stable and seamlessly integrates with the Kessler Kwik Release system for fast camera mounting. You can also use the provided 1/4"-20 camera screw to keep mounting your camera simple, yet effective.

Durable & Lightweight

The Pocket Jib Traveler boasts the highest weight capacity of similar sized jibs by handling rigs up to 10lbs. Its adjustable and sliding weight bar provide fine-tuning control and are removeable for lighter weight. The Pocket Jib Traveler was engineered with weight reducing window cuts that both maintain its structural integrity and also keep the system light-weight.

Minimal Counter-balance

The Pocket Jib Traveler's sliding weight bar reduces the overall counter-balance weight needed to balance the jib, thus reducing the required load necessary for your shoots.

Universal Mounting

At the mounting base, there are both 3/8"-16 and 1/4"-20 threaded holes for a variety of mounting options. Whether it be our patented Kwik Release system, 100mm Ball Kit with a 3/8"-16 stud or even a standard tripod quick release plate, you'll be up and running in no time.

Monitor Mounting

Easily attach monitors and accessories with the provided 1/4"-20 holes on the side of the base.

Camera Platform Extender

Use the Camera Platform Extender for the Pocket Jib Traveler to easily mount larger bodied cameras to the jib. If using a larger bodied camera without this piece, you may encounter conflict with the back of the camera and the jib arm when moving to a low jib position. CLICK HERE - SOLD SEPARATELY

Very well thought crane. April 15, 2014
Reviewer: Ruben Arrieta from Mexico City, Mexico  
I used it today and was amazed of the build quality and the thought put into it. It really works well, smooth, easy to set up, easy to adjust, fast to put on and to put away.
Very light but sturdy enough to manage my rig, even with the full Chrosziel mate box system and a Zeiss 16-35 2.8, perfect crane movements.

Best jib December 17, 2013
Reviewer: Neil from Sapporo, Hokkaido Japan  
Had been wanting to get this piece of equipment for over a year now.  When it finally arrived I was able to set it up and get a great shot the first time I tried it on location!  Very happy with the quality and ease of use!

Well Designed Compact Jib December 5, 2013
Reviewer: Jonathan Roberts from Tempe, AZ United States  
I still do a double take when I see how small this jib packs down. It's light-weight yet robust, and capable of adding that extra production value where you need it.

My favorite thing about this jib is the set up time. Takes me maybe 5 minutes or less to have it up and running on a tripod. Balancing the rig is super fast and easy. I just wish there was an included bubble level at the center of the jib (where it mounts on the tripod) so you could quick adjustments to make sure it's perfectly centered.

Even though it doesn't have a huge reach, you really don't need that much movement to add a very professional look to your shot.

I think event filmmakers and anyone else who does a lot of quick set ups will really appreciate this rig.

Top Travel Jib July 8, 2013
Reviewer: Shmuel Hoffman from Allentown, PA United States  
Really well made and thought out product.
- lightweight, actually extreme lightweight
- easy to assemble
- works very nice without any extra gear
- well build
- after a few weeks of use the joint starts to squeak and it vibrates while moving up and down
- higher price then others but I get why its more pricey
