19 inches - folded storage length
19.3 inches - minimum height
72 inches - fully extended risers, with the legs splayed out at maximum 39" diameter circle, meaning parallel to and lying on the ground for greatest stability.
84 inches - fully extended risers, with the legs at roughly 45 degree angle with the ground, 26" diameter circle, usable with care (flash with umbrella hovering over one of the legs, no wind)
89 inches - absolute maximum height with legs set at minimum splay 14" diameter circle, extremely unstable and inadvisable, but will hold a flash indoors if no perturbations
So in summary, maximum usable height about 7 feet, maximum height with maximum stability 6 feet.
The five riser sections are well constructed and unexpectedly sturdy. The weakness is in the folding legs. They are not circular, but rather flat sections roughly 19" long, 9/16" wide, and 3/16" thick. Due to the small thickness and location of the rivets close to one end of the legs, this becomes a design for a tuning fork. The stand wobbles easily and is highly susceptible to torsion. It does no good to have a strong body (riser sections) and weak legs. Manfrotto should have allocated more of the weight/size budget to the legs, even at the expense of the body. Users typically have problems with stands wobbling and falling over, not with riser sections fracturing or buckling from stress. They flubbed the design.
It wouldn't have killed Manfrotto to include a cheap nylon bag for something meant for compact portability.
Not a problem if you're setting it up in 1 location, but if you plan to carry it around for even a few hours, it's a big pain (besides the weight and odd-bulk that won't attach do anything, you'll often hit stuff with it or bang it around). That's where the 5001B nano stand is perfect!
The stand folds down to about 18 inches long, about 4-5 inches thick (because of the legs) and about 2 pounds. At this size, it can attach to most camera bags/backpacks.
It unfolds quickly but can be a bit confusing at first (it unfolds in a way other than most lightstands). It uses 5 locking screws (one for the legs, 4 for the height).
The tip is a 3/8" thread, but it comes with a Manfrotto 3/8" to 1/4" adapter of high quality ( Manfrotto 015 1/4-Inch-20 Male 20mm Long to 3/8-Inch Female Adapter - Replaces 3358 ) a great piece which will work on all 3/8" threads to convert it to 1/4". Note that it does not include any type of "coldshoe" for speedlights (you need to supply your own).
The legs are very thin (about 1/4" by 1/2" and maybe 16" long), these are not rounded legs like most stands. There are rubber tips on the ends (to prevent sliding, I'm guessing).
When fully extended, it is quite wobbly. I use it for camera-mounted Speedlights and for that it works great. I don't know if I'd put a studio strobe on it.
Any type of accessories like Umbrellas will turn it into a sail - with the stand being so light, a gust of wind can blow it over. Fortunately it does seem to have a good center of gravity.. while it does wobbly even just standing up by itself, it surprisingly doesn't tip easily. Even trying to tip it to test durability, it bounces back in place. With that said, I'd still recommend a sandbag or some type of weights (camera bag?) if used outdoors.
Paintjob is nice and doesn't seem to chip (some of my cheaper lightstands will peel the second it's rubbed against something).
The problem is the price - at 50-60 bucks, it's pricey for a 6 foot stand (one that you probably won't even want to use at 6 feet because it's so wobbly). For the same price, you can get multiple very-good 6, 8, 10 or even 13 foot stands (including air cushioning). With that said though, you can buy 3 of the 10 foot stands and if they're each 5-8 lbs and 4 1/2 feet long, they won't fix the problem that this stand will..
For that, I highly recommend it for those needing a PORTABLE / Compact stand. If you just need a stand for a studio or around the house, there are much better options.

This review is for just the Nano Stand.
I have yet to be let down by a Manfrotto so far and as it's advertised "compact and lightweight" which was exactly what I needed, I decided to go for it.
This product comes in long cardboard box and unfortunately doesn't go with a travel bag which was a real shame, they could have thrown in a cheap bag to help people carry it "on the go".
The top of this stand has a lighting spigot with a detachable 1/4" tripod thread adaptor which when removed exposes a 3/8" thread.
Whilst this stand is made from aluminium, the structure is quite thin which is why it has a nice small profile when folded down (48cm). The max height is 1.9m (far too overkill for my needs), though to be honest even if it wasn't, I wouldn't trust it as it feels wobbly at the top end; but where I need it seems sturdy enough with the Manfrotto Flash Shoe , Godox TT685S Camera Flash & umbrella attached.
Overall, it's a decent product that I would recommend.
I do love it and it surely doing its job.
