Seriously lightweight travel sticks for GH2 DSLR

I am taking a GH2 with me as a 3rd camera (plus Ex3 and 7D) - and I thought I would pair this with a really light tripod - less than 3Ib - to hang on my backpack. I will also be taking my Miller Solo kit.
I will not be panning - just stationary and a ball head would be fine. However, I use a lot of the small RC2 QR plates.

I thought of the Gitzo GT-1550T Traveler 6X Carbon Fiber Tripod but has anyone seen these:

I doubt anyone here has seen the articles indicated, they're photographic tripods as opposed to video tripods,

If it works for you Jon, go for it and let us know how it/ they do.
