This is the best easel for plein air. I have wasted more money on cheaper easels, than the cost of the Soltek. I received the easel in just two weeks, and am very pleased over all.

I purchased the Soltek easel and it seems really nice. I am making a modification to it so I can paint on a smaller canvas. The easel is set up to paint on nothing smaller than an 8" canvas. This is the only bad thing about this easel. This easel is replacing my one from college which I have had for over 20 yrs, I expect it will last just as long.

Excellent easel! I use it for plein air and workshops. My medium is soft pastels and Dakota makes boxes that fit perfectly inside the Soltek. Fabulous!! Love it!

I would also love to buy the backpack, but the link doesn't work at the website where it is offered.

In my first week of ownership I can attest to a great design that lives up to its reputation. I was pleased with Madison's prompt shipping and arrival.

I am very pleased with the Soltek easel. I love its sleek design and its versatility. It is more stable than the wooden French Box easels.It seems very durable. There were some communication/techincal issues with Madison Art Shop customer service

this item is very good with one exception- it has had one of the release buttons on one leg come loose. i managed to find the problem and fix it. i would like very much to get the price of the backpack bag for the easel

The Easel of a lifetime - Soltek!!

Master-artist Judith Carducci has been on a vendetta against Soltek, due to what she says is a defect found in her easel. She has repeatedly besmirched this product and our responses.

Reading Judith's long-winded rants and anger, the visitors do not see the main point.

The main point is that we have simply asked Judith to return the easel to us at our cost for for Soltek to inspect and repair or replace it. We sent her a shipping box with a pre-paid UPS label to return it, and all she does is ridicule us for that(?)
We have never ignored in any way to honor our warranty of any possible manufacturing defect in this easel. We are simply asking Judith to return this easel on our UPS account, which she refuses to do.

We have sold many hundreds of this Soltek easel to very happy customers with no other complaints.
