One of two weeks bought had an incorrect part, this was exchanged without question by Jacksons. The easels are light, easily adjustable. The board can be removed from the tripod with the clamps and support rod still attached by simply undoing one thumbscrew on centre guide. Easel also come with two handy, movable, hangers, one on each leg. Legs have twist locks which are easy to fasten. (Posted on 05/09/2016)

This is simply fantastic. I'd recommend it to any watercolourist. I paint mostly moorland and countryside. Sometimes I'll take a photo and paint it at home, but usually I want to take my paints with me. However, that's the problem. I haven't ever painted in the wet because I know I can't handle an umbrella as well as my paints. And up on Dartmoor, if you start, the wind will take your easel and everything and scatter them far and wide. However, the great thing about this easel is, I can take my gear (the easel itself isn't too heavy), and if the weather turns grim, I can take the easel apart and fit the camera onto it as a tripod. Quick and easy to set up, and makes the whole job so much easier. The weather gets bad, so just set up the camera and finish the painting at home later, in the dry. The easel weighs not too much. It's got some heft, but not anything like as much as a wooden one. It has a very easy to use adjuster on the picture-holding bar. Basically it'll take any size of paper I throw at it, so long as I have a back board to stick it to. I went to a local DIY store and got an off-cut or two of thin board that cost next to nothing, and they work fine. The boards slip into the board supports and the supports can be easily slid up and down to hold the board securely. An adjuster allows the board to be set to horizontal like a table, and from there to any angle you want. The legs are not quick-release, which is a pity, but they are very sturdy, which is pretty key. There are two mounts on the front legs, which can form lower supports for really large paintings, but I don't anticipate needing them. One I use in order to dangle a pot with my brushes in it, while the right hand one has a jam jar of water hanging from a string. All in all, a superb piece of kit that now travels with me whenever I go walking. (Posted on 20/08/2015)

I've never owned an easel before, and I was very keen on the idea of buying a wooden one. I had the feeling that the wooden types would be more atmospheric. But then, when looking at easels, I found this model. Living on Dartmoor, I often carry a camera, and the fact that I could use this tripod as a camera stand as well as an easel convinced me.It is simple to put together, with knurled screws to adjust the height and angle of the paper-holders. It has a quick release handle that allows me to turn the picture from any angle to flat. The legs have twist-releases, rather than clamps such as the legs on the Bristol, but I don't find that a problem. Being aluminium it is very light. In fact my early concern was that it could be flimsy, but to be honest, in any wind likely to put it at threat, I wouldn't be out anyway. For me, the criteria were simple: lightness, ease of use, robustness. I live on Dartmoor, and I cannot use something that may rust, nor something that would be too heavy. This easel matches all my criteria, and because it's so light, I will be using it more than alternatives. (Posted on 20/08/2015)
