Lan: Good comparison review!

Please can you do some vibration tests with a camera bag hung from the hook under the legs? Just one tripod would be interesting. I thought it would make things more steady, but I usually find that if there's more than a tiny draft, the bag starts swinging around - which I think might actually add extra vibration to the mix. So I'd be curious to see whether it does actually add vibration or not?

Also I'd find it helpful if you added a quick graphic to show how low the legs can go with the tripod flat down - a companion to the very useful maximum height graphic you already have!

Just use a bungee cord attached to the hook and your bag. Make sure your bag is resting on the ground and not hanging. Also, there should be tension on the bungee cord. It's makes the setup a LOT more stable than just having your camera bag hanging.
