I'd not appreciated the backpacking aspect. Every pound does indeed matter when it must be carried all day.
That said, I'd wonder whether the bulk of the Benro or the Audubon would not be as much of an issue. A two foot plus long lump is no fun to hang on a backpack. Perhaps a more compact model such as Alexis pointed out might be more compatible on the trail.
