The Extreme Pod by Rugged Ridge Outdoor Gear is a Picatinny-rail-mounted bipod capable of 360-degree rotation and extreme high-angle target engagement thanks to its ball-and-socket neck construction. A tension lever also allows the bipod to be securely locked in position once the desired orientation is found, and the telescoping legs can be quickly deployed by pressing a button on each side of the unit. Available in three sizes, the 7"-10" model (shown) weighs only 12.6 ozs. thanks to its carbon-fiber legs and black satin anodized, 6061-T6 aluminum construction. Price: $315.
