Dolica ZX600B103 60" Carbon Fiber Tripod is on sale at Costco wholesale if you are a member they are $89.99 I figured this was a good deal for a full carbon fiber tripod.
Reviews seem good I held it yesterday and I will be pickup one up later this week.
Adorama.com has it for $174.99 so at $89.99 its not a bad deal and with Costco you can try it for 60 days and if you don't like it you can get a full refund.

If you're not dead set on carbon fiber, here's a pretty good deal with a backpack. It's also 8 inches taller.

Well I picked one up today and was able to give it a good look over and I must say I am pleasantly surprised I feel it was well worth the $89 dollars I spent. Will take a few photos later this week of the tripod.

I just ordered one online. Not being a Costco member, I was interested to see how much the Non-member surcharge was - $4.50. Worth it IMO.

And bare aluminum can be very cold on the hands in the Winter.
