Lightweight backpacking tripod

Does anyone have recommendation for a good trekking/backpacking tripod?

I have looked at a few, and the one I'm considering is the Feisol 3441SB with CB-30C Ball Head, Center Column, QP-144750 Plate and a Tripod Bag. Does anyone have experience with this one? Can it fit into a backpack/large daypack?

Kind regards,

I have not used any equipment by Feisol so, unfortunately, can't provide you with any information. I personally use Gitzo tripods because they are lightweight carbon fiber and very sturdy. Gitzo Website

I am presently eying an expensive upgrade to Really Right Stuff ball heads. I have found the Gitzo ball head is difficult to get set up correctly. It tends to sink after it is tightened.: Really Right Stuff

I always suggest getting a gorillapod. They are PERFECT for backpacking!
