Mono-pod:  While on an April back-packing trip this year I started using hiking poles and came to really like them, so while on my latest photo trip I decided to try a mono-pod. I found it not only stabilized me while trekking up and down mountain climbs, it worked extremely well at stabilizing the camera.  It was simple and convenient and coupled with an Arca-Swiss quick release was fast and easy to use and saved the hassle of lugging the tripod.  It cannot replace a tripod completely but it can do a lot.
