Introducing the New Kessler Pocket Dolly 3!

by Bret HoyLeave a Comment

Kessler has done an amazing job with their Pocket Dolly line thus far and while it continues to get better, we’re reminded that the original design was so strong. The new Kessler Pocket Dolly 3 takes all of the advantages and most the design elements of the Pocket Dolly 2 and enhances them with new features to make your Pocket Dolly into more than just a slider.

The Pocket Dolly 3 includes useful upgrades such as a lighter build, an integrated cart brake (about time) and has more mounting options for adding accessories to the end blocks. This takes the original Pocket Dolly and extends it’s lifespan and makes it far more useful for the rigged out shooter.

If you’re in the market for a new slider, you’ve probably already considered a Kessler and they’re making the Pocket Dolly more and more of an attractive option.

The Kessler Pocket Dolly 3 starts at $549 for the Mini and $649 for the Traveller and Standard length.
