I love my 3LT but for traveling light you should go with something much much smaller and lighter.

Which weight do you thing would be best? Isn't there the problem of having a tripod that's not that stable, it it's too light? Smaller one also tend to have no hook to add weight...

Choosing a tripod turns out to be much more complicated than I expected..

It will really depend on the tripod. I bought a Manfrotto carbon fiber 190CX3 and it turned out to not be very stable - they have revised it recently. But the carbon fiber meFoto Roadtrip is very stable, and it has a weight hook.
