Joby’s Gorillapod line of flexible tripods are the industry leading standard in bendable tripods. However, some people like me, for instance, are a bit critical of the price. This is where Alohaa’s 12 inch flexible tripod fills a gap.

The Alohaa flexible tripod offers tremendous value and quality for under $20. The tripod is heavy duty (while remaining lightweight), and carries the weight of your average mirrlorless camera just fine. I tried it with my Fujifilm x series camera and it works very well. The tripod attached to the camera without an extra adaptor. The pivot head lock is an important feature that performs exactly as it’s supposed to, and the individual joints of the legs allow you to get a nice snug fit when attaching the tripod to other objects.
This bendable tripod also comes with a smartphone mount that can be used for large smartphones. I use mine with a smartphone that has a 5 inch screen and is inside an Otterbox Defender style case. The phone doesn’t budge a bit. I tried the phone inside mount without the case and it fits like a glove. You can definately trust your naked phone in the mount.
I absolutely love this tripod. It doesn’t take up much space inside my sling backpack. I recommend this tripod to anyone who vlogs or wants a flexible tripod for special photography shots. The Alohaa bendy pod is great for travel purposes too.
