    I am looking for a somewhat light weight tripod.
    60" to 72" in height range. mainly for nature, outdoors area. Various hiking and back counrty terrian.

    I was looking at this but was wondering if anyone had any suggestions.

    ... looks good!

    I use Manfrotto's black "190b" pro-model which travels with me everywhere i go and has never let me down

    One suggestion - use a ball head

    Enjoy your shopping!

    :)

    Spec list the weight as 6.2 lb, I thought hiker usually tried to cut down backpack weight.

    Have you looked in to using a monopod, are if it is in your budget carbon fiber
