Having the flexibility of setting up your bipod on any kind of uneven terrain is the advantage of using a bipod with foldable legs. Although it is necessary to provide a stable base on varying surfaces the advantage of being able to adjust the bipod legs independently from each other is huge.

But what you would probably prefer relates largely to the size and weight of your bipod and that is why getting one that is foldable to the point where it is compact and easy to carry is very important. And that's what this selection is all about.

Naturally there are other factors that are extremely important when buying a bipod and so we have listed a selection that not only contain foldable legs but also a number of other features that have been examined below.
