It'd be cool if you could take the legs with you and optionally use them if it's not too windy
All of my lightstands ... the legs fold flat for storage. Just extend only the sections, and not the legs. Although if you slightly open/unfold the legs, you can brace your forearm against them for some extra support/leverage as well when holding out boom style. Otherwise, just leave them folded closed.
I've got a very nice painter's pole as well (planned to use) ... but haven't been compelled to use it yet ... using my lightstands only so far.
