GekkoPod Review: A Tripod That Goes Anywhere


The GekkoPod is way better than a selfie stick–this flexible tripod can mount on to a tree, rock, or any other surface, so that you can take photos from any angle.

GekkoPod Review:

Price and Where to Buy: At the time of writing, the GekkoPod was on sale for $19.95 on Amazon.

How The GekkoPod Rates:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. You’ll never need to take an awkward selfie again with the GekkoPod. Wrap it around a tree and set the timer on your phone or camera and take great shots. The GekkoPod can be balanced on a rock or wall, and it’s flexible, so you can wrap it around a branch or other object as well.
  • Value: 8/10. Especially at the sale price, this is a good deal for a portable tripod.
  • Portability: 10/10. It folds up small or flattens out, and is very lightweight.
  • Durability: 9/10. The GekkoPod is not at all flimsy and will last for many photoshoots.
  • Cool Factor: 10/10. It’s way cooler than a selfie stick.

Final Verdict: If you want to up your travel photography game, you should invest in a GekkoPod.
