Hard to say. Can you tell us more about your equipment, what you like to shoot, why you need a tripod vs. handholding and what your budget and target weight are? My recommendations usually cost more than folks' cameras, so I don't want to go nuts here.
I bought this in South America for fairly cheap. It is a bit less than a pound and packs up pretty tidily. It even has a spirit level. It's not super strong, hence the light weight. I'm going to be taking it with me on some trips before I write up any reviews or recommend it.

I would look for something like a small Slik. I have a Hakuba but it is old, got it at a second hand shop, and can't find anything on it on the net that is recent. I would look on some of the camera shop websites, like B&H or even Amazon.
Don't get me started, you know how I get.
