What's better for a light weight travel tripod:Bogen, Feisol or something else?

I'm about to do a lot of travel and want a light weight tripod to go with me while I am filming. I've been doing some research. Options I've considering are:

1 - A used Bogen 3063 head with Bogen 3011 legs for 115

2 - Getting used Feisol CT-3441S legs and then buying a lightweight head for it

3 - The Pearstone VT2500B

4 - Getting a used Miller Solo with a DS20 head for 750

5 - Getting Manfrotto 475B legs and putting a head on it

Obviously, there is a big price difference between this all. This wont be my main tripod. I see it mainly for travel. Although I do a lot of travel so paying more for a good travel tripod is OK with me.

Any thoughts? I can be neurotic about too much choice (ugh plane tickets....) and this decision is a big one.

Sachtler ACE systems! Any of them will work. I've tried the ACE M on a lightweight setup (5D2, 70-200, EVF) and it works fine.
