Well, it was this or a plein air easel with tripod. I feel i made the right choice grabbing the sienna horizon. THis is so nice as a package, talk about a 4 n 1 deal. You have solvent container, palette, brushes, paints...etc. It's not that big to carry anywhere and it's sturdy. Not to mention you can paint big size canvasses which is one main reason I got this. The craftsmanship is really well done, they really know how to put it together. Overall this is a great easel for the price. One con that I might say is that it's a bit heavy, so you might want to invest in a should strap. Other than that it gets 5 stars.
