Save yourself some weight, and get a CF monopod.

I use the Bogen/Manfrotto 449 CarbonOne with no head (mount directly to the lens foot)

I like the small size when collapsed, the light weight, and the fact that even being 6 ft 2 in tall, I find it still has height to spare.

Strong enough to carry the lens over the shoulder as you walk.
