Looking for a Tripod...

So I have been looking for a tripod, Im looking for the best bang for my buck with quality. I also need something that will handle cold weather. (No Plastic, atleast anything that will be snapping) I want twist lock legs for this reason. I was set on manfrotto but unsure about it in cold weather. Also they are a bit pricier.

I do not need carbon fibre. I think aluminum will do me just fine. I have not been able to find out which is the best there is so many mixed opinions on the web it gets confusing.

I really like the look of the Induro Tripods.

The Induro AT114 For Legs, with a decent head (Im thinking an manfrotto 3 way. 804RC2)

My other option would be to get a kit tripod. Induro seems to have some good pricing on their kits.

The Kit i was looking at is the Induro AKP1 Light enough, comes with a similar 3 way head from what I was looking at from manfrotto

So which would you choose? Or would you choose none of them?
Price range is up to 250 CAD. Preferably Less.

I have looked at Benro too but have not found much info other than cheap and decent quality. I would like to have this for life.

Right now in my photo bag is a d90, 70-300mm lense and 30-80mm lens. Hoping to add a primer in shortly! Down the road I may use a telephoto lens but they seem to be out of my price range.

Nikon D90
