Soltek Aluminum French Easels is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite easel ever I have used this only in the studio so far to get better feel for how I want to organize my kit, but I am fully confident this will be a joy to use in the field. It is elegantly and thoughtfully designed and is well built. It removes excuses to not paint because it makes painting simpler and more comfortable. It is also compact. Price is soon forgotten and quality is long remembered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, Compact, Fast and Simply my favorite easel! I already have a Soltek but bought this second one for a spare. I had an issue with one of the legs after more than 5 years but it was easily resolved with the help of the manufacturer. I have followed the instructions that came with it and it's consistently been a reliable and efficient easel. Initial $$ seems big but it averages out to be very reasonable over the years of use. Love Love Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous easel The Soltek easel is fabulous. I love how sturdy, compact, and easy it is to use. Well worth the cost. It has become an integral part of my daily art activities whether in my studio or out in nature for plein air work. It is easy to take on location outdoors, and has a quick set up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soltek Easel is Awsome After using the Soltek easel for only a short while, I can honestly say that it is the best piece of artists equipment that I have ever purchased. Delivery was fast, and the quality and design of this thing is awesome. Highly recommended, it will pay for itself over time, I am sure. My hat is off to the folks at Soltek.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Proud Owner! Great design! Love the size and weight. Bring it anywhere: kayaking, bicycling, hiking. Must say that I had reservations about buying it since reviews revealed problems with the legs. The enclosed video made it quite clear to me that if used properly, this "problem" can be avoided. Don't force it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Favorite easel, with frustration I've used my Soltek Pro for about 3 years and I like its sturdiness and multiple adjustment possibilities for oil and pastel painting outside. I have great frustration, though, with parts breaking down, especially the telescoping legs. One leg had pulled out entirely but I was lucky to retrieve that little metal pin and reconstruct the fitting and slide the leg back into the upper leg. But it can pull out again and I must be very careful not to extend that leg beyond a shorter length. I have to cover this leg "joint" tightly with painters tape to hold it together. The bottom half of this leg is taped at the joint, too, but this week while painting outside, the leg slowly telescoped back into the upper leg. The mast that supports the canvas is now starting to wobble when I apply pastels to my surface so I shim it and that helps. Otherwise this is my favorite easel. I've heard there's a long turnaround time for repairs. It had taken me about six weeks a while ago to have a replacement part mailed to me. Debating getting a new one but it looks like the delivery time could be many weeks from Jerry's. I do not paint every day and I don't believe I am rough on my equipment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Takes practice Has many good features. I find setting up and adjusting difficult with art supplies inside. Convenient for painting as it lets you lay everything out. Light weight compared to many other french easels, but not as easy to set up and take down as you would expect as the adjustment buttons are very small.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from FABULOUS This is a great plein air easel. I keep it packed and ready to go and it takes me about 2 minutes to be set up and ready to paint. I'm all for anything that eases the challenges of plein air painting. This easel is made of lightweight metal and fully loaded is not as heavy as a full box easel. It comes with a great palette and provides a large working area and trays for brushes. When I first started using my easel I wasn't making sure the locks on the legs were secure and so the leg would slide back up. Once I started securing the leg locks it hasn't been a problem. It is expensive but after using it I feel that it's worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soltec: The best easel I have ever owned Just got back from a Plien air weekend with 8 other painters. Every one raved at the ease of setup and tear down, flat storage profile, light weight and ample storage for brushes and paints of the Soltec Easel. In addition the multiple painting setup formats were incredible. Of course it is costly when compared to wooden and other metal easels but I am expecting it to be the last easel I ever buy.
