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 it's 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 Needed
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. SOLD SEPARATELY

Lifetime Warranty
Backed by our manufacturer's Lifetime Warranty, we guarantee that it is free from defects in material and workmanship, otherwise we'll fix it.

Reviews

Travel JibReview by Stuart VanDorn
Overall
This jib will be going to: Europe, China, Russia, Mexico and California. I looked at a number of small jibs and this one had all the features for this job. We tested it out on two short projects and it worked well in small and cramped spaces. It packs up suitcase size, fits in a back pack and is quick and easy to set up and you get professional results. We will be using a number of cameras and so bought the quick release plate and extension plate. Also bought the bag to keep things tidy. Kessler builds durable and quality products and the pocket jib traveler looks like it'll have no trouble surviving this three month shoot.
Excellent quality - professional resultsReview by Andreas Scholl
Overall
If you have used Kessler Crane equipment before and know the outstanding quality and durability of their products, you won't be disappointed with this great piece of equipment. I use my GH4 on it and got excellent results using the PJT. The sliding weight bar extends far enough to balance the GH4 in a medium extension with just 1.5 kilos of counterweight. On a sturdy enough tripod you won´t get any wobbling in your images. I took the PJT on a 3 hour hike and got quickly used to setting it up and balancing it. While it´s not made out of "super light" carbon fiber, it´s perfectly portable, fitting easily in a regular suitcase. This is the perfect "go anywhere" jib for the serious indie shooter.
Great travel jibReview by Bob Krieger
Overall
I used this jib during my summer film camps. The ease of breakdown and setup made it easy for the students (middle and high school) to get up and running and start worrying about their shots rather than the gear. I forgot the counterweights but managed to easily create some using water bottles and gaff tape. Great gear!
Kessler Pocket Jib TravelerReview by Johnny Waller
Overall
Amazing product. You need to remember that the main purpose of this specific jib is that you can travel with it. I would not have a jib if it was not of the size and weight. I can carry my Kessler PB Slider, jib traveler, monopod, tripod and weights in the my Vinten Blue bag. It is an amazing product that gives you the opportunity to carry one by yourself. And with the Kessler quick release system, I can switch between a slider to a jib in a couple minutes. I shot this video using this system with only 3 hours to film. I carried my gear and had to walk to different sites as well.
Light and QuickReview by Kramer O'Keefe
Overall
I'm an event videographer that also likes to take video in hard to reach locations. Finding a portable jib that was lightweight, sturdy, and easy to setup was a must. The Pocket Jib Traveler is very easy to setup and performs quite well. There is a little sway when doing normal jib motions, but that is to be expected from a jib this size. Overall this is well built and performs very well. I am definitely satisfied with this product and would certainly recommend it. I would also recommend purchasing a ball head to go with it to expand your creative options while using the jib! Very good piece of gear!
