I saw this tripod on display at a local camera store and the tag on it called it a #3199G. However, I can't seem to find the model number in any product info from bogen or online at any camera stores. Why is this. The price at the store for the legs and head was $229. Is this a Mountaineer style tripod? Thanks for any help.

The Manfrotto website (Bogen is just a marketing name for the US market) will have plenty of information:
B&H, Adorama, Focus and Cameraworld have all had this tripod listed on their websites.

I remember been tempted to purchase a Bogen 3221G tripod.
Or 055NAT in the original Manfrotto designation.
It is a green version of the Triminor Pro tripod (which I ended buying, in black) but known as the Triminor Pro Tracker.
The price is about right (depending on the head) and a great buy.
Have a great time

It is the 3205G and the 3221G. I also saw the 3221 WN Wilderness tripod. Does anyone have any experience with any of these tripods. Also, I am wanting a ball head for it. Any suggestions.
