My concern was finding a tripod that was A) lightweight and good for traveling and carrying around without much fanfare. B) can hold a full-frame DSLR comfortably with a decent size lens without fear of bending or toppling over and can support up to 20 lbs. (Nikon D700 with grip + bigger lenses) C) can support any ballhead and/or comes with a decent one that truly can support some weight. The MeFoto happlily meets all my criteria!
The ballhead the tripod comes with is removable and you can easily screw on any head you want. I tried one of my "ballheads" (more like a ballhead with pistol grip) which I love, and it just didn't make sense on this tripod. I found the ballhead on the MeFoto to be more than adequate to hold my D700 with Grip + Tamron 70-300 lens without a slight budge. This small ballhead is incredible. It is smooth, easy to operate, and I am in love. I wish I could find the exact replacement ball head for my other tripods and monopod. I'd buy a few. If anyone knows of a replacement only available for purchase, please hit me up here!
The Road Trip comes with 5 extendable legs. I was leary about "twist" legs, coming from the lever type, and I find i really do love these legs! The legs are easy expand or collapse and hold in place firmly. I can easily get these legs out and setup before my old slick tripod with the "lever" type of legs. I find I prefer to setup by expanding 4 of the 5 legs, and leave the last segment collapsed. It seems to keep the tripod a little more steady when using a heavy setup. Not that I wouldn't setup all five legs and trust them. Just for my purposes of testing and use, this works for me so far. If I extend the column I can see fine through the viewfinder without much discomfort and may have to bend a little. I am 5' 10" and have no problems with it.
A nice nylon zipped carrying case comes with this package. Inside the case is a little pocket for storage. This pocket also contains a set of spiked leg caps for rough landscape terrain like water, sand, snow, dirt, ice and mud. There is an allen wrench for making adjustments as needed.
There is a hook at the bottom of the column that you can hang a bag on for stability. I have used this and hung my 20 lb. camera bag on it without any problem. This allowed for great anchoring of the tripod and limited movement in windy situations. The monopod idea is also an awesome idea. I have tried to assemble the tripod by unscrewing the padded leg and column and putting it together, which took 30 seconds tops. I haven't tried using it for any real world projects yet, but I see no issues with it.
The Slik stays in my truck and can go on small excursions or landmarks close by. I want a tripod I can attach to a backpack or throw into some luggage without taking up a lot of room and creating a lot of weight. I want a tripod that is sturdy and doesn't cause me any worry. I want a tripod that will prove to be durable and easy to use. The MeFoto Road Trip is that tripod. You'd be hard-pressed to find a tripod within this class and price-point featuring this fit, finish, usability, and features. I'd highly recommend the MeFoto Road Trip series for most DSLR's out there!

A great feature is that this is very packable and so lightweight at just under 4lbs and about 16inches long when folded. As a testament to this, I packed the whole travel case with tripod inside a luggage bag (due to my space requirements) on a flight and then carried it around typical tourist attractions - botanical gardens, the zoos, etc. Many people were willing to buy this tripod off me as they complained about the weight of theirs. I didn't feel like I was carrying anything more than another waterbottle and I got great photos that I would not have gotten without the use of a tripod.
I love my bright blue color which matches my gear and choosing the color was the hardest decision in ordering this item. The color has held up after being used in various conditions indoors and outdoors with little wear. It is not a cheap paint coat on or after thought to just make the tripod look "pretty" and makes my gear recognizable as "mine". After I had owned it for a couple months, the manufacturer now has the ability to customize several color combinations through their website if that is an option someone would prefer.
I would recommend this tripod whether you just need one for family shots, are looking for a travel tripod to take hiking, for travel, etc. Its great all around. I also learned the manufacturer makes other size tripods and lens filters that may be worth checking out too.
Updated to add photos for somebody on facebook asking for a tripod recommendation that would work with Peak Design products. Photos show tripod at a low setting with a canon t5i with the basic kit lens attached - this was just to test the plate compatibility not other features of tripod. My photos showcase the plate setup that came with the tripod and that I switched it to work with the Peak Design Arca-Swiss plate included with Clutch. It's quick release and effortless to use the tripod with these products - I don't have to take my hand/wrist strap (clutch) or neck strap (slide) off when using the mefoto tripod!
I will also add that living in a windy area, I wanted a tripod that would not blow over when setup. There is a fine line between being too heavy to carry when traveling or backpacking and being too light that it can cause damage to your camera if a gust of wind comes up and the tripod cannot handle the elements!
Quality materials? Check.
Smooth and solid ball head? Check.
Legs lock tight? Check.
Camera feels secure when extended to max height? Check.
Quick release plate is easy to mount to camera? UH OH!
What are they thinking that this important plate is missing a D-Ring feature for tightening and loosening from the camera?? And why should it slide back and forth in it's slot on the head with no "catch" of any kind?
This is almost a deal-breaker for an otherwise fine tripod, and I am surprised it is not (?) mentioned in a review.
I read the reviews, did my homework, but missed this if someone else had mentioned it. But now you know.
Do consider this as you finalize your decisions.
