May I recommend that you get a tripod that when fitted with the proper head, is exactly at your eye level, without center column extended. That way, tripod deployment will be much faster since you can just let the legs extend all the way, rather than to a predefine length. Anything taller with head, and you'll be tip toeing. Anything shorter, you'll be bending forwards.
In which case, you should try out the tripod with the appropriate head at a shop. I would recommend John 3:16 for their friendly service and no fuss if you don't buy obligations... I was once deciding on a lens there and tested out 6 diff lens... End up didn't buy... No hard feelings from them. Really nice people.
