I just got a set of Feisol 3301 the basic 3 portions carbon legs $270 (only two locks to turn on each leg) with no bloody center column. Put my Markins Q3 on top.
Light and sweet on the packpack. Easy to set-up and take my field 4x5 without any problem I could see for now.
I have a nice Berlebach 3020 that is even easier to set-up but I just never take it with me due to weight and bulk.
