Manfrotto 055XPROB will get left at home

If you think of it in terms of bottles of water (weight-wise), the Manfrotto is a large 2 liter bottle that you might pack in the car or keep at home. The Benro and Sirui tripods are half the weight. More like a 1 liter bottle of water you could carry around in a shoulder bag.

Of course, this all changes if you're lugging around one of the larger DSLRs and a good-sized lens (70-200 f2.8 for example) which might benefit from the bigger tripod.
