The STRADA MICRO is a tiny but versatile plein air easel. As the smallest in the STRADA line, the MICRO is best for overseas travel, backpacking, and other situations where having the lightest, most compact gear is crucial.  

The STRADA MICRO measures 7"x 7"x 1.5" (18 cm x 18 cm x 4 cm), weighs 1 lbs 8 oz and can hold a canvas panel of any size up to a 10" high with an unlimited panel width.  The STRADA MICRO can accommodate a 1/16" and  1/8" canvas panel. The stretched canvas adapter package can allow for larger canvases. 

The STRADA MICRO is made from high quality aluminum and coated with a durable* neutral gray finish.  With fewer than half the parts of more complicated wooden easels and pochades on the market today, there is less to break down and wear out. It is a simpler, stronger, thinner and lighter portable box easel with a unique self-locking component.  The Strada MICRO features only one adjustable hand screw, uses two position control hinges to hold the box open at any angle, and has a simplified tripod attachment. These features reduce weight and setup time. Furthermore, there are no parts that protrude from the sides, top and bottom surfaces making it easier to slip in and out of a backpack or carrying case.

Side trays for the STRADA MICRO are sold separately.
