The first thing we think of when people start talking about tripods isn’t the three-legged, fixed-position piece of hardware that our Dad used to shoot with a film camera, it’s a Joby Gorillapod. The product is just too damn flexible to be messing around with a full tripod in most circumstances. It packs easily in a bag. You can adjust it to your needs. It’s relatively inexpensive. It’s available with levels, quick-releases and now, a whole new set of options like action clamps, locking arms and GoPro mounts. The Action Series works like this. The Action Tripod is closest to the GorillaPod you’re familiar with: three adjustable arms, an integrated ballhead with bubble-level and switchable camera mounts. The Action Clamp and Locking Arm is basically a C clamp with a locking, adjustable camera arm. The Action Clamp and GorillaPod Arm is the same C clamp, but with a bendy arm like you’re used to. All three take action videos, especially GoPro, to a whole new level.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
