Because of the light weight, it's easier to knock over if you bump into it, so you might want to consider attaching a sandbag if that's a concern for you.
UPDATE 10 Nov 2013: Just wanted to add that I used this tripod recently during a landscape workshop in Yosemite National Park. I learned that you DO NOT want to use it with the center post fully extended if your shutter speed is below 1/90. At full extension, even the slap of the shutter from a dSLR can introduce a slight vibration that is noticeable as minor motion blur in the image; the slower the shutter speed, the more noticeable. For snapshots or images destined solely for the Internet at screen resolution, this may not be an issue for you. For anything that is going to be used at large sizes, it's definitely an issue. This only occurred with the center post at full extension. At half extension, I didn't see this problem. I stand by my earlier statements and am not deducting any stars. This sort of thing is only to be expected in a lightweight tripod.
It's definitely a little flimsy for some stuff but I don't put my 70-200 with a 5DmkIV and grip on it, just a smaller 6D or 60D with a wide. It'll hold the weight sitting still but I wouldn't necessarily want to try to pan/tilt nice smooth shots with it with a heavier camera on it. I replaced the head with the other model of their small travel video head so you might look into that before you order too, depending on what you need it for.
It is of very good built quality. It has become my primary grab and go tripod.
I give it only four stars for two reasons - first, the strap of the bag that comes in is too short, so you can't carry it diagonally on the back but only on the side of the shoulder. This could be a problem when you hike, because it is not as secure.
The second thing is that for long exposure and with a slight wind you really have to put some weight or hold it down to reduce vibrations. I used it on a number of occasions for long exposure and found myself holding the tripod down most of the time to make sure there weren't any vibrations.
Overall I am pretty happy with the tripod and would recommend it.
Pros: Folds down to a nice size and can be easily stored in backpack/small carryon.
Decent enough ball head
Cons: Slightly heavier than I thought it would be
I would definitely suggest this tripod to a friend, and I would also strongly suggest that they use a remote shutter release for extra stability. For the price, it is meeting my travel and hiking needs quite nicely.
