Tripod recommendation

I intending to buy a tripod but not so sure about what are the good one I should go with since there are tons of choices out there, hence I need to seek for some advise and recommendation for those who knows about the requirement for my current equipment. Based on my current knowledge, I only know that the tripod have to withstand the weight double of your equipments in order to maintain its stability, that's all.

So far, what I know various brand are Gitzo and Manfrotto.

I owned a D800 with 14-24mm, 24-70mm, 50mm f1.8G lenses and a SB700. If based on the maximum combination weight, it shoud be approx 2.5kg.

Basically, my shooting style are landscape, portrait and night landscape shooting.

What I looking for in a tripod are:
1. I want the tripod that do not have monopod in between, just purely tripod.
2. Light in weight that easily carrying around because I will use it for travel.

3. Budget wise, I still not so sure until I get more recommendation regardless of price.
4. Can be either Aluminum or Carbon fibre or Composite.

I need some advise and recommendation for that. Thank you
