Tripod for Travel/Packing to Replace Gitzo Steel Tank?

Howdy-

I know, another tripod question. . . I have an older steel Gitzo tank of a tripod with an Arca Swiss ballhead, but would like something solid but much lighter that I can strap to my f-stop pack. Folks have a couple recommendations I can further research?

Many thanks.

Hi Biff,

I don't travel much but picked up a Vanguard Veo 256AB and find it pretty portable but still fairly stable. Height is good and it has the dual feet (rubber and spikes). My model is aluminum but they also have a pricier carbon fiber. Here is the link: The VEO Collection / VANGUARD

Good luck in your search.

I use a Gitzo Traveler series tripod (1541T, which is an older model). It's sturdy, light, and easy to carry around.
