Alvin's Heritage aluminum easels are finely crafted with heavy duty aluminum to withstand the rigours of field use. Light and portable, these easels are also suitable for tabletop, studio and display use. They hold up to 25lb, yet weigh less than 3lb (great to take on the road). Each telescoping leg is independently adjustable for painting on uneven terrain. Two sets of shelf brackets fit a wide range of regular canvases, pads, and boards from 6" to 48" in height. Easel is 69" height when fully extended; closed height is 25". Nylon carry case included.
